    not sure but I haven't heard of anyone receiving a 1gb microsd kingston made in taiwan in ages. there's a rumor that kingston stopped using the taiwan supplier.

    20 MB is the difference usually and the speed is lower than a Japanese made one.

    Read/Write times are generally the same, access times are twice as fast in Jap Kingstons

    There's no guarantee, but most people from gbatemp have seemed to receive Japanese models from meritline and newegg. If you're alright with the possibility of getting a Taiwan-manufactured card (judging from the comments above, quite low), go ahead and order. It's not like the card can't be resold on eBay.

    If it doesn't work out, see if you can return it and buy it from somewhere else. I'm not familiar with Newegg's policy, though.

    WHEN WILL YOU PEOPLE LEARN?!

    You can't tell. You just CAN'T.
    It doesn't depend on the store, unless they're targeting people like us.

    NewEgg still has Taiwan-made Kingston flash memory. You can attempt to ask them to check, but it's still a coin flip. You could also try to find PNY (Japan) or Toshiba if possible.
