    I found a 16GB Kingston class 2 microSD at a very reliable local superstore. It costs quite a bit but I'm really interested to know if any of you used them for games. I'm interested in their speed and how they fare with ROMs.

    I use one with an M3 real with no problems at all, it plays films roms and MP3's without issue. I have not played any demanding roms like Castlevania but all the ones I have tried work fine.

    Haven't had any real issues with speed on the cards, video files play through moonshell smoothly too.
