I benched my Samsung with SD Tools in my Sensation (~25% full, so not optimal).
Write: 9.4 MB/s, Read: 25.9 MB/s

Yeah I think I did read somewhere (might have been on the back of the Ultra packaging) that it has better random r/w speeds.

Can you do a speed test with the Samsung with file sizes of 1MB and below? I'd like to see how it stacks up. I think it's comparable to a Class 4 card of the same size from what I've seen in other threads so it's a solid card.

I'd go with the Samsung, from what I have read the Lexar doesn't have very good speeds with small random file sizes.
