This review is from: PNY Turbo Performance 64GB MicroSD Flash Card Model P-SDUX64U190-GE
Pros: Fast & cheap
Cons: Cant hit 90MB/s?
(I never expect full rated speed but this is pretty close!)
Other Thoughts: getting over 70MB/s Read & 45MB/s Write on this card.
Solid for the price! Hope it holds up past the warranty expiration.
Pros: Lifetime warranty
Pretty awesome Sequential Read speed (over 75MB/s)
Cons: Only 21MB/s Max Write? really?
Other Thoughts: I have been buying Kingston SD cards for my phones since they started putting MiniSD slots in them. never been disappointed. I had one card Fail on me and Kingston RMAed it for me with out issue.
Sadly I may need to do this again for this card...
I wanted a 64GB MicroSD with over 40MB/s write for recording Video. This appeared to be a higher end card from Kingston that says it Writes at 80MB/s, so I grabbed it. Sadly the highest write speed I can get out of it is 21MB/s...
I know ratings are a best case situation, but 25% of rated speed is pretty sad.
Speed test done with Kingston FCR-HS3 over USB3.0
Seq - 76.02 / 21.25
512k - 54.13 / 9.74
4k - 13.39 / 0.13
4k QD32 - 11.01 / 0.15
Pros: Plug and play
Fast enough for HD streaming from Netflix, YouTube, etc
Fast enough to max out my ISP bandwidth with out raising my ping much if at all.
Good alternative to drilling holes and running Ethernet through your home.
Cons: NOT 1000Mbps
Not a cheap solution when compared to MUCH faster WiFi networking options
Other Thoughts: This product took no effort to set up. Just plug it in and your done! This alone will make this a solid solution for people with little to no Knowledge of tech.
Sadly though, I cant see much use for this out side of just just getting "on line". I probably wouldn't recommend this for a "real" home network unless you had poor WiFi penetration and or drilling & running Ethernet is not an option.
My connection was only a 15-20' run from outlet to outlet, on brand new wiring, with NOTHING in-between. No other outlets, surge protectors etc and I had trouble getting much over 5MBs transfer on my file server. thats clearly NOT 1000Mbps! one
Aside from the much slower than rated speed this is a pretty amazing product. especially if you have poor WiFi reception in one area of your house or cant/don't want to run Ethernet cables. The set up couldn't be more simple and the speed is more than enough for general internet use and HD media streaming which is only about what 80% of people would need out of a "home network" anyway.
