    Hi all,

    I am planning to buy the SC DS1, but I am worried that the micro-SD cards that I have are not "turbo" or "high speed" I see that A-data is popular and so is Kingston and Sandisk. I found this card and there will be a sale on 7-28. Are these read rates good enough to have no lag?

    It's only a class 4 and it isn't a "brand" that I know of or anyone uses commonly. People suggest the A-Data 4GB Class 6 MicroSD(HC) on Newegg.com. The one I recommended on Newegg is about $12+$6 shipping so you can decide to either go with the common one or try out that one.

    class6 cards don't really make much of a difference. You should be perfectly fine with a class 4 card, though some noname cards could have trouble with castlevania and some other games that tend to freeze.

    Thanks for your input guys.

    I was thinking of getting the the 4GB A-data card from newegg until I saw this from buy.com.


    Anyway, I think I'm going to try to buy both since I will one for myself and one for my brother.

    I'm going to order the SC DS1 this week so I will be able to tell you if there are any differences.
