The PNY card has been returned and replaced with a SanDisk Extreme 30MB/s 16GB SDHC card. The SanDisk card proved to be far faster; the buffer cleared in half the time it took for the Kingston Class 4 card under a variety of conditions. Furthermore, copying speeds from the computer to the card were consistent, without any pausing or hesitation in the writing process. In the future, I will only choose from SanDisk, Lexar, and Kingston. I do not want unreliable or inconsistent performance.

Glad it worked out for you.

I have 3 PNY Pro 8 GB Class 10 cards I can test with. I also have various other class 6 and 4 cards to compare to.

I would probably consider running the test on a Linux box instead of Windows. I've seen Windows do some funky things with transfer rates so I wouldn't put it past the OS being the cause of the problem.
