    I use the Sandisk 16GB in my M3 Real, and it works great, no problems at all (even with films) I paid £40 inc delivery so won't find one much cheaper at the moment. 32GB no idea but this one holds 400 games!!!

    imho 16gb is total overkill.

    with what did you fill your 4gb card in the first place?

    its not like you cant delete all old games you played through, y'know?

    I suppose it's at least twice as good as an 8gb [​IMG]

    Man I have an 8gig thats overfill... Its mainly music and games, mainly music tho and yea I was wondering if the 16gb worked for supercard sdhc. Im probably going to get it anyway.

    O and you can't ever have too much space...

    I wouldn't touch a micro SDHC card that isn't class 6

    and what's the point when you can get 2 x 8gb class 6 cards for half the price?

    Yeah, the price on flash memory is constantly dropping, so buying a 16gb is not really that much value for your money.

    I just nearly orderd a 16GB card from play.com, but I cancelled my order. I dont know if I can justify the money, although I do really want one.

    here's a good formula to see if it is a good deal. if the size of memory is doubled and equal to the price of qauntity 2 of the lesser size memory than it is a decent deal. if not, it's a rip. currently a 8 gig sdhc micro is 15. a 16 is $55.00. so your paying alot more for the double than you should. or just divide price per a gig and you'll see.

    Thats not the point for some people. I for one would prefer to pay the extra for 1 16GB card than 2 8GB card so you can just have the one card in your DS at all times, and dont have to worry about swapping cards, or losing them.

    I have re-ordered from play.com a 16GB Card for £37.99

    I have a bit of money in my pay pal account so can really afford it after all.

    Exactly what i prefer, one sd card instead of swapping since i don't carry a bag and would might lose for such small item. I'm fine paying £30 for a 16gb since my 4gb microsd was class 2 so i didn't notice much different then 16gb ;p

    Just got my 16GB Sandisk card and it seems to work in my Supercard DSOne. The intro to castlevania lagged, but not really bothered about that game. Everything else seems fine and dandy though.

    So far so good.

    8 gig Transcend Microsd class 6 on newegg.com for around $14 including shipping. Compare that to at least $50 for the 16 gb. You might want to get the 8 or wait until the 32 is released, which means the 16 will drop dramatically...
