    Hi guys,

    I know IBNobody has this and says it is good, but is there anyone else who has it who can tell me their experience with it? Here is the link:

    It ends up being 19 bucks after the rebate, so I really want to get it, but I only want fast memory sticks

    It's hella fast, faster than Sony or Sandisk. I have two I got from amazon for 30$ each so that's a great deal aswell.

    Get two. Really. I had a Performance Index breaching 850 for both that I got. The first one I got was faster, but only by a little bit. Kickass sticks!

    Heehee, thanks guys! Can't wait!

    And thx IB for the head's up!

    P.S. Can someone give me the program and some instructions on how to get benchmark results for my memory stick? Is this the same program they used on maxconsole? Is it hard to figure out?

    Oh no, Blackspeed is pretty easy to use. Put it on a memory stick, run the EBOOT, and it does the rest. I mean, you DO have to press Triangle, but it saves a .txt file and a screenshot of your results too. And, you can actually remove the stick with the EBOOT and test a new stick before you run the test and it works.

    I of course put only emulators and PSX games on the slightly slower stick. ;P

    Thank whoever had the balls to buy one of those Lexar's in the first place. I, myself, was just a follower.

    I bought one just because it was cheap, and big. I had no idea it was actually a good card. XD I mean seriously, I did absolutely no research and I had luck with Lexar's SD cards on my DS in the past, so I took a pretty big gamble on this, and am I ever glad.

    I did the Blackspeed test on my 4 gig Ultra II Sandisk:

    Not bad for 44 bucks, but I want that Lexar card for 18 bucks as my second card!

    I have four Lexar Platinum II's, three 4 gigs (one for my sister's PSP), and a 2 gig. They are wonderful cards, never had any problems.
