It is deplorable that sd card marketing tells read speeds but not tested write speeds (at standardized error rates).given the popularity of SD/CF media I was surprised it is so few - but then again a few machines can turn out millions every 24 hrs or so, so not room for too many! Glad I only use 3 of those 4
When I worked in data management a few years ago the same problem arose. And OEM archival media was 2 or 3x the price of 'everyday' stuff - no real difference today I think as OEM quality media is 2 or 3x the price of the generic / unknown origin stuff. Still peanuts compared to even a modest DSLR/ Lens setup though.
