It looks like depending on how much you use your flash cards, they have a life expectancy, and there are rates on how quickly they accept information. On this experiment the only thing I see that they forgot to mention is what are the types of situations that they ran their tests. What kind of camera used, light conditions, was there full power, humidity, yes humidity levels do effect electronics- ask anyone who has dropped a cel phone in a lake or any other body of water. Shutter speed, frame rate. The other issue inherent to us, is quality, Which flash card was the one that gives us the most data, and keeps it that way. I am not sure about you guys, but if I have the decision to do higher quality verses faster, I will go the the quality which they didnt hit in my opinion. I guess this proves that whenever you read someones blog or webpage or print media you have to ask your own questions as far as what your true needs are.
