    Hello All,

    I am new to this forum and I JUST picked up my DSTT last night. Game play is excellent. Load time quick and I am loving it... although i have nothing to compare it to, ie, R4, cyclo, ak2, etc.

    Suffice it to say, I am more than satisfied.

    I have an old kingston 1 gb micro card and it is already 80% filled with just a few files.

    I live in Toronto Canada, and we have a shop that has amazing deals on Micro SD Cards, included are links.

    The DSTT supports SDHC, so my question is, which is the best deal, comparing price/feature/values.
    Right now, I am leaning towards Transcend class 6 4gb SDHC card for $27.99 or the Kingmax 4gb $25.49 which i believe is also class 6

    P.S. I was seriously contemplating getting one of the 6gb SDHC or 8 gb SDHC, but figured the 4gb was the sweet spot in terms of best bang for buck. i'll hold off on the 6/8 SDHC for now.

    Your votes are appreciated

    *cheers*

    I have a 2GB Kingston microSD and find it more than large enough (how many games can you play at once anyway)? If you're under 4GB, you can format in FAT16 which is much faster than FAT32 with the DSTT. If you're going to go with one of the larger cards, a class 6 should perform better than a class 4. A lot of people seem to like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...k=4gb%2bmicrosd

    Get that one its the fastest card. And go with newegg as Bri said, as its a lot cheaper unless you want that adapter thingy.

    I appreciate your replies. I will update once I purchase the card. I understand that if i purchase the card from new egg I'd save myself 10 bucks but I'm an impatient person and I'd rather pick it up immeidately than wait 1-2 weeks.
