Pros: Using a Trancend USB 2.0 Card reader, got 25 MB/s read & 22 MB/s write speeds.
Other Thoughts: This resolved video pausing problems I was having when using a Raspberry Pi running XBMC (open elec) to view live cable channels via a HD Homerun Prime, which is a network based cable tuner.
Comcast still uses MPEG2 for TV streams and 1080p can push up to 20 MB/s, so its important to have write speeds that fast.
Pros: Using Check Flash 1.16.2 and a Transcend SD/MicroSD USB 2.0 reader.
Write Speed: 17.05 MB/s
Read Speed: 25.89 MB/s
Other Thoughts: Bought two of these cards. Using them as replacement drives for a Raspberry Pi / OpenELEC setup. The Pi needs a fast drive for dealing with the 15-20 MB/s high bitrate MPEG2 steams that Comcast still uses. Normally 720p works fine on slower 10-12 MB/s flash drives. But 1080p needs something faster.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Made of copper, which is more effective in transferring heat than aluminum.
Cons: 3 heat sinks, all the same size, but the chips on the Pi are all diffrent sizes.
Other Thoughts: I guess you have to look at them to realize that its not going to work for all 3 chips on the Raspberry Pi. You have large, medium and small, yet these heat sinks are all the same size. So it works for the main, overlaps the 2nd and you need some kind of tape to secure it on the third chipset of the Pi.READ FULL REVIEW
