According to fakeplastic in this Pi thread some microSD cards are 200x faster for writes than others.

It seems that the fastest microSDs are Sandisk, but not all Sandisk are fast. The fastest for random 4k writes happens to be a class 6.

Also, might it be worth putting swap on microSD to avoid wearing out the irreplaceable flash on the N900?
