Default san disk micro sd extreme plus 32gb strange readings

Hi there I just bought a San disk micro sd extreme plus for my i9305 I figured I might as well get it as it will be future proof for my next phone. I guessed it would not run at full speed on the s3 of course. So I downloaded the top rated app for testing it's speed just now and it's reading 17mb write and 11mb read! Yes the read is slower than writing!I tried it's twice and it's roughly the same. My old card read 11mb read 4mb write which seemed fine any thoughts? Thanks.

Ok still not finding out why but other apps are doing similar things : I'm getting about 17mb write and 11mb reading on the gilmar Jose purin app that seems to be popular...very strange never seen a card faster at writing than reading from it?

Ok now I just tried to connect it to my Windows 8.1 pc and it says usb device malfunctioning unrecognised. wtf...the card checks out as real in tests and it's from Amazon...this is getting weird is it not compatible or something? But it seems to work I'm running videos from it on my phone...
