I tested only one card from Digitex and to a great surprise: the device notched a record of 6.51MB/s write speed in the Lexar Media FireWire RW019 card-reader. This card doesn’t belong to any “special” professional or speedy series, but this didn’t prevent it from behaving very confidently in the camera tests. Unfortunately, we couldn’t identify the origin of the card, so I can’t tell you what supplier ships such fast devices. Anyway, Digitex gets my respects as its card made it to the third overall position in my tests. I hope other cards from this company are as fast.
The two cards from Kingston that I used in this test session belong to two different series: the 512MB one is “ordinary” and the 1024MB one belongs to the “speedy” Elite Pro series. Kingston plays it correctly: the Elite Pro does have a higher performance, both in digital cameras and card-readers. However, the “ordinary” card is not much slower.
The edge stamp on the Elite Pro series card says it is manufactured by Toshiba; there is no stamp on the 512MB card.
