    Hey everyone,

    I'm planning on getting an R4 and since it doesn't come with its own SD card, I am gonna have to go out and buy one, now I have checked the Slot 1 card comparison chard and its says that "1 game can slow down depending on what card you have". I personally don't want any slowdown on any of my games so I want to make sure that i buy the right card.

    In short, what good and fast 1GB micro SD cards would you recommend.

    Cheers.

    You can get a legit Japanese Kingston 1GB at meritline.com for $11.99, that's where I got mine from. They can't guarantee a Japanese one though and there's a chance you might get a Chinese one but most have been lucky to get one manufactured in Japan.

    Since i live in Lithuania i don't get access to all the US stores so there aren't that many retailers here that carry them, though i managed to find this.

    It's in Lithuania so don't bother reading.

    Are the ones from China way slow or something or am i pretty well off buying this one ?

    I bought Kingston Japan made 1 GB and 2 GB microSD cards based on all the comments and guides I have read before. I bought those at DealExtreme and I can't say I have seen any kind of troubles like in-game slowdowns or whatsoever.

    I can't seem to figure out how to make my 2 GB one FAT32 though...

    Over there.
    Kingston 2 GB. FTW. The 2 GBs are more worth it, cuz like a little biit more money gets you another gig.
