    Default A-DATA SD card - Any good?

    Saw this 512 Mb A-DATA SD card at the IT show claiming a speed of 150X, but selling at only $37. Seems unbelievably cheap for such a "high-speed" card.

    Anyone used SD cards from A-DATA? Are they reliable and good?

    Well, you have to see what's their definition of 150x... if 1x = 1Kb/s, then 150x = 150 Kb/s.
    Think it's just a marketing gimmick, even the pro cards might have trouble attaining their advertised speed of 133x.

    This A-Data SD card reads at 23mb/s (150x) but writes at 16.2mb/s (108x).
