Today’s competitor for the MicroSD challenge, is again Memorette. After we have taken a look at the EXpert series, here we have their lower end series, the Memento Standard Premium MicroSD. How well does this hold up against its own brother the EXpert?
As mentioned earlier, in the EXpert review, Memorette does not produce their own cards, but purchase from other manufacturers and resells it. They are made by larger corporations such as Samsung and Micron.
So, as we can see, the front of the card is just a simple white text with the card details, brand.
On the back of the card, it states the country of manufacture, as well as the batch and serial number which we masked out.
First, we will be running the H2testW, a free program that tests the raw or sequential read and write of the memory module.
On this H2testW, the write speed first started at 13.9 Mbytes/s before rising to 16.0 Mbyte/s.
Overall, as we can see, the write speed is fluctuating, however, at only 5 seconds out of the whole test for the write being kept above 10mb/s, with more than 90% of the time being less than 10mb/s, it seems like the card is clearly falsely labelled. Read speed however, was almost constant at above 20MB/s. In overall, the speed are:
Read – 20289KB/s
Write – 7387KB/s
Supposedly powered with MLC nand in the heart of the memory card, the price of the card is not particularly cheap. Running H2testW and CrystalDiskMark showed some respectable results, however, going in-depth, we found that it is not the case. Unfortunately, that said, this card is highly not recommended and we urge ALL consumers to avoid this card.
