In other news SanDisk is still selling genuine USB Flash Drives with a write speed 80% slower than those fake SDHC cards. To be fair, they are not advertising any speed for those flash drives, however.

Whenever I buy a new flash drive or memory card, I always run some tests to see if the capacity is what it’s supposed to be. Since these tests typically wipe the contents of these cards, it’s usually best to either backup the contents of the card, or better yet, run the test before you put anything on said card.
