    So, I saw an ad in front of a shop who sold a vGen microSD 1GB for $5, and 4GB at around $14

    may I ask is vGen has a good quality? I need a microSD since I lost my NDS along with the microSDs

    Ah, and I would like to request a list of memory brands and their quality, I can't play my DS without a mircoSD, what with I just bought an EDGE last week, it's so ironic

    Err, ask in the shop? I'm assuming it's run by a person, not a robot...

    Never heard of vGen though, but then again...most branded microSD(HC) cards are the same stock Sandisk/Kingston/etc use, just rebranded.

    i've used japanese and taiwan branded kingstons, pny and scandisk memory for my ds flash kits. the japanese kingston has always been among the best. you can get 2gb japanese kits from dealextreme for $7.

    the quality of cards should all be fine nowadays. the question is speed basically. class6 is great class4 works well too.

    Off-topic:
    Irony = an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected. So, what happened to you was not ironic. Period

    On-topic:
    Does the shop allow returns? Why not just buy it and try it out. Hell, even if they won't take returns, is $5 or $14 really that much to risk?
