Um just wondering but hasn't anyone actually looked at the cards and seen the speed for the A-data card? I know it isn't reported right on newegg or anything but it isn't that hard to find out that it is 40x which comes out to a speed of 6MB/S, while this is fast enough for general media viewing and far beyond fast enough even for lossless audio, it is not 20MB/S, though you do got 20MB/S from a 133x card such as the more expensive transcend card which requires a patch, though why pay more for something like that when 6MB/S will still be fast enough for general use. Even if you only got 4 MB/S for a 32 GB card it would only take about 2 hours to fill it completely, though hopefully you wouldn't be doing that every day or anything and hopefully you wouldn't intend to put 30 GB of media on it in one day either.
