After an individual file is tested, it is then deleted before the next test, and the preceding steps are taken again. Average transfer speeds are then calculated by dividing the real file size by the time taken to transfer.

Yowzah! Norcent's SD card and both of SanDisk's Ultra II cards are seriously fast. They're so fast, in fact, I was not able to obtain a measurement for any of those cards for the 10MB file test.

Kingston's microSDHC card is still one of the faster SD cards, and it obliterates its capacity rival from Patriot. Although it still doesn't quite reach its class rating, Kingston's offering is surpassed only by Norcent's SD card and SanDisk's high-end Ultra II cards.
