    Not bad for a 19 dollar memory stick, huh???

    P.S. I formatted to FAT 16, and had 3 large games on it when I did the test, so it was 3.70 gigs full

    P.P.S. AND it came with an adapter for my computer, none of my other memory sticks did (Sandisk 4 gb and Sandisk Ultra II 4 gb)

    See? What'd I tell ya!

    Are you sure you formatted it at FAT16? Your cluster size should be 32k.

    I didn't format mine (but in the PSP itself) and it has about the same PI as yours. Not bad, especially for the price. Too bad the rebate is limited or I'd get a few more. =P

    Well, that and the sale's over anyway.

    I know, thanks IB! I know you aren't the first one to try this, but you are the one that got my attention about it! I'm pretty sure it's FAT 16, it even says so when I plug it into the comp. I'll retry the format again later, just in case.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but it looks like it's still going, through June 26th.

    I think I'll order one now actually. Thanks for the heads up guys.

    No. I was wrong. 32K = FAT32, 64K = FAT16.

    And for those of you who despair over the sale being over, it'll happen again.

    Cool, thanks IB. Szyslak is right, the sale is still going on. I'm not sure why some people see it as being over, as I dont see that.

    So the Lexar 4Gig Platinum II is the real deal right now? The best of the generation 2 (Ultra II, Mark2, Platinum II) cards?

    It appears so Tortimer. At least it is AS good as the rest, and less than half the price if you live in the U.S. [​IMG]

    I'm thinking of getting an extra one but I hate mail in rebates... how long did it take you to receive it?

    Too bad I don't [​IMG]

    And anyways, I recently bought a 2 and a 4 GB Ultra II (recently as in last week) so I think I'll be happy with that.

    4GB for games and the 2GB card for homebrew, emulators, movies etc.

    CorruptJohn, I just now sent out the paperwork, but it says it can take up to 8 weeks. So most likely if you need the money now, this may not be the best deal for some.


    Tortimer, the Sandisk Ultra II's are great too, it sounds like your set.

    I went ahead and bought one too just for trouble games that seem to need the fastest card I can give it. Unfortunately, since I live in California I was charged tax.

    Yeah, still half price compare to buying the same product from newegg ($27 vice $64). That was enough to make me pull the trigger on my order.

    Cool, it's a great stick, you really can't beat that price. It sucks having to wait for the rebate check though [​IMG]

    As long as they actually send me a rebate check after going to all the trouble to send it, then I don't mind. Whenever I have a substantial rebate check (like the $275 I got back from Canon for buying a new camera body and some lenses), I make photocopies of everything and I make sure my calendar is marked so I can start harrassing the company if my rebate doesn't come within the specified time.

    Yeah, exactly. I made copies of everything too, but I didn't mark my calendar. Good idea, I will do that now!
