    Hello,

    I want to order Patriot Signature Line 8GB SDHC Secure Digital High Capacity Class 6 Flash Card.

    http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=24236&promoid=1046

    Do you think it will work well, and is the speed OK.. meaning is it going to slow down opening / closing etc?

    I also want to order CORSAIR Flash Voyager Mini 4GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model CMFUSBMINI-4GB - Retail

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233070

    to use it as bootable USB for restoring Linpus, and for other stuff when not used as bootable. According to a review I found it seems to be really fast 30 mb+ write and 14 mb+ read..

    Any issues that you see with the above hardware?

    Please let me know what you think.

    Thanks!

    First of all I should point out that I haven't tried either of these with a One but...

    Class 6 is as fast as SDHC cards get at the moment although the class only specifies the minimum speed. There are various benchmarks on the net if you care to search but there is no reason why this card should not work well.

    The Corsair Voyager USB disks have a good reputation as being amongst the speedier one, albeit rather expensive. You might consider the OCZ Rally 2 range which are also very fast and a bit cheaper.

    Thanks lotus, I just ordered both. 27 bux for 8 more gb or ram is not bad at all..

    I also ordered corsair flash drive, just because I read that is one of the speediest around, smallest and is waterproof.. but it was 12 bux more than OCZ you suggested:

    Here is a review:

    I Have an A-Data 8GB Class 6 SDHC card and its pretty fast. Here's a bench of it below.
    Best of all the A-Data are cheap too.

    I have some PQI's but they're nowhere near as fast.
    I've also tried some an 150x A-Data SD card which had good read but slow write so i wouldn't suggest those.
