Sorry I didn't mention that -- same price in store or online this weekend (Frys.com used to be Outpost.com if you are familiar with them, Frys bought them). You can also order online for local pickup if you live near one (newer feature for those that didn't know). But I digress...
If anyone is interested, I ran a few speed tests using Crystal DiskMark against some other cards I had laying around, and the specs aren't too bad!
1. NEW 16GB Kingston (Class 4) - 13.13 MB/sec READ & 9.056 MB/sec WRITE
2. 8GB Patriot (Class 4) - 13.41 MB/sec READ & 9.672 MB/sec WRITE (this is card I had before in my phone)
3. 2GB Kingston (Unmarked Class) - 13.40 MB/sec READ & 4.805 WRITE
and for giggles I threw in a regular 16GB Class 10 A-DATA SDHC card that I have in my digital camera and came up with - 13.39 MB/sec READ & 11.44 MB/sec WRITE!
So based on these specs, since Class speed ratings are measured on write speeds, the Kingston performs at a Class 9 (if it existed), which isn't too shabby for the price. Sure, it may not perform at this efficiency all the time, but is certainly acceptable if you will be using it for media storage like me!
