Anyone try these on a Raspberry Pi? I don't see them listed as tested on the Raspberry Pi site and the Amazon review is a guy who actually used the 32 gb version. Would be nice to have two cards to mess with different builds.
Guys... don't bother. I wasted some money on faster SD cards for the Raspberry Pi myself before I realized I was being an idiot.
Trust me, you will be MUCH happier using any small, inexpensive Class-10 SD card just to boot off of and moving everything else (the root partition) off to a USB drive of some sort. I'm using a Samsung Extreme flash drive right now, but most of its speed is wasted on 2.0 (it was on sale). Even the USB 2.0 interface is MUCH faster than the SD interface, and since most OS tasks are I/0 bound the subjective improvement in performance is huge. It's also safer- overclocking has been known to corrupt SD cards, but the USB drives are better protected by their own memory-management systems and the essential serial nature of the beast.
If you''e using a powered hub (for everything, including powering the Pi... don't use D-Link) you can also move /home or just your user directory to a second USB flash drive, and have all your files stay in place when you change distros, upgrade, whatever. No more moving files from old to new, no more multiple copies getting out of sync.
