    With all the talk in this forum of SD cards & class differences, I thought this was worth passing along . . . (Available free in the Market)
    I came across this app & tested my SD card.
    Sure enough it detected my Class 6 card, etc.

    Too bad it can't test the internal memory. I benchmarked the internal memory through USB from my PC and it's greater than class 6 for sure.

    I just recieved my 32GB card from Verizon, immediately put it into my phone & ran the test. Looks like it's currently transferring like a Class 6, but we'll see if that changes once I fill it up with movies.
    This card is a SanDisk 32GB Class 2 MicroSD HC card 0% full

    ha , mine has "unknown" no info at all.
    must be one or more apps accessing the card
    I could tell by the time it was taking to read/write 300mb to card.
    oh well, not important enough to me to go through and disable all apps

    Just tested my ($37 thank you Verizon ha)32gb card with pretty much the exact things that were on the 16gig minus about 50mb of pictures I took off and didn't get as good of results as I hoped but not too bad
    Write 6mbs
    Read 8mbs

    The write is nice to have slightly faster but the read speed is more important to me. Kind abumbed out that it is significantly slower
    It's saying it's equivlient to a Class6

    Try the barter section of craigslist . . . there's a recent article on gizmodo where a 17 year old boy "bartered" starting with a gifted cell phone and worked his way through up to a Porche . . . I imagine in a day or two you could barter up to a 16GB card :D

    Try scrolling up, I thought mine wasn't showing anything, and the results were off the top of the screen, lol.

    It's an aData 16g class 6, gets 8m/12m, not too bad :D.

    wow i think i got a 'bad' card.

    on the one that came with the phone (about 80% full) i got write 4mb and 10read quite regularly.

    got a samsung 8gb class six off play.com and the speeds have varied but mostly under 6mb write and 10-12mb at 80% full.

    when i put it in brand new and just formatted i got 9mb write and 14 read.

    surely it can be that much of a difference whilst filled with files?!

    no, my first test the class was"unknown" , prob meaning some app was using card, maybe my backup was running.
    just ran it again: 3.0 write 15.0 read class 2 ,this is an 8GB card that I got back in lg voyager days voyager>dare>omnia>dinc so still acceptable considering age and re-writes/formats the card has gone through.
