    Hi guys ... So recently I purchased this 16 GB micro SDHC card for my new Android phone:

    Newegg.com - Patriot Signature 16GB Micro SDHC Class 4 Flash Card Model PSF16GMCSDHC43P

    The problem is that I'm not getting the 4 MB/sec write rate that this card promises ... I tried low level formatting it with this tool:

    HDDGURU: HDD Low Level Format Tool

    .... but the write-rate is still the same .. Both before and after trying to low level format the card, I'm getting a write-rate of about 0.9 MB/sec ~ 1.0 MB/sec ...

    Other people who have purchased this card from Newegg have said in their feedback that they can at least achieve 3 MB/sec or something, and I'm not even close to that .. Am I doing something wrong ?
