The final group of diagrams in FC Test is about reading a single 100MB file. Once again, there are no significant changes in the ranks. The SanDisk ImageMate USB 2.0 is an unrivalled leader with all the four memory cards. The no-name “9-in-1” device follows behind; the Apacer Mega Steno MG820 takes the third place by the total of the results. The pair of “7-in-1” readers is again very slow.
Perfprmance in AIDA32
I used this program (the Disk Benchmark option) to measure the average read and write speeds as well as the average access time of the devices. The results with the four memory cards are listed in the following tables:
- Apacer Photo Steno Pro II 100x 512MB (graph);
- Pretec Cheetah 80x 256MB (graph);
- SanDisk Ultra 1GB (graph);
- Transcend 45x 2GB (graph).
The diagrams show the average write speed of the devices. Although there’re deviations from the results of FC Test, they are minor. The SanDisk ImageMate with the USB 2.0 interface is the fastest, being the best with three memory cards. The no-name “9 in 1” reader notches the second result with three cards out of four. The Apacer Mega Steno MG820 seems to be the third by the total of the results. The two unidentified “7 in 1” devices are again the slowest.
