    My first post so go easy on me... Thought those looking to purchase an R4 DS would be interested in this:

    http://www.buy.com/retail/product.asp?loc=...4127&adid=17662

    Check out using Google Checkout for another $10 off.

    http://www.buy.com/corp/promos/google_offe...073&dcaid=17073

    If you really want to save every last penny... Sign up for eBates for a 1% rebate on everything you buy at buy.com (and other etailers... Hey... it almost pays for the rebate stamp!).

    You should be weary of cheap MicroSD cards, they could be fake.
    If you get it and it's working great, lucky you.
    I'm probably gonna get a Sandisk 1GB for alot more money.

    Q~

    newegg.com has pretty good prices on 1GB Kingston microSDs. I've had great luck with mine.

    haha, I hadn't looked at the sale yet, didn't realize it WAS a Kingston microSD.

    Yeah, that is a good brand, not a "fake". At least not in my experience.

    You have to use a new Google account for the google checkout $10 to work.

    I bought several stuff from buy.com + Google. Good deal. If you're looking for the Japan version though: The Kingston 1GB microSD I got for ~$17 at the end of December was made in Taiwan. 256MB microSD from kingston.com a week ago for ~$5 shipped: made in Taiwan.

    I received the Japan Kingston 1GB version from Amazon for $25. Really fast shipping to NJ as well...

    All is legit. They did this same promotion back in the middle of Dec., the $10 deal. Did it, shipped damn fast even with the free shipping, and it's a legit SD-C01G JAPAN Kingston card. Just vouching for my transaction of course.

    I too can vouch for the Buy.com Kingston microSD. I have a Supercard DS (One) which everyone knows is kinda picky with cards, but my card runs every game I've played on it perfectly.

    Ordered from Buy.com, got the Taiwan version (1 GB)...should still work either way.

    Yeah, I thought I remembered seeing you post that in another thread, hence I said I was just vouching for my transaction with them. So it looks like people will randomly get either the JAPAN or the TAIWAN one. Not sure if that even matters since SynGamer says his Taiwan works fine. So go save some money and get one [​IMG]

    My Kingston is Taiwanese, it's great, haven't seen any problems (both Castlevania intros are fine)
