    I was thinking why don't people just buy an 8gb microsd memory stick like this one Click Here then just buy an adaptor like this one Click Here. It would only cost $30 and it would do everything a memory stick. Tell me what you think. [​IMG]

    Any response is welcomed.

    I think that adapter isn't as fast as using a real Memory Stick.

    i'm currently using the same sort of thing in my psp slim & lite except mine is a m2 sandisk card in a pro duo adapter. i have had no problems with speed and have tested every type of game from god of war and flatout carnage to final fantasy crisis core. i would go for it it's a good cheap way of getting memory for the psp...........................sudeki300

    DX cards aren't always the greatest quality though. I got a 4GB from them with my pandora battery, and it's chipped.

    The link you provide shows a S&H cost of about $17 dollars!! Its also a Class 4 card, not worth it for that price!!

    I use a MicroSDHC 4GB Transcend Class 6 card with my PSP Slim and it works great for me. Only if I could find a good price on a Class6 8GB MicroSDHC so I can move the 4GB over to my DS Lite.

    Now that's good, I might do that. (even though I heard their rebates take a LONG time to get)

    Hmmm, makes me re-think if it's really worth it.

    its not worth it at all just to save a few $ and get a fake stick instead

    A $30 Pro Duo 8GB can't be real.

    I've got one, and it's write speed is definitely slow

    read speed is just fine tho. once you get games on, you won't need to think about it

    I've been really pleased with mine for the price
