Is anyone currently shipping PSVSDs?

I know I"m late to the game here, but I've filled the my memory card on my v1 Vita & would still like to be able to use my physical game cards.

Every search I do for it is like pages of the SD2Vita, which sure, would work, but I'd rather still be able to use the actual physical games I bought.

Update: Guess it'll be me. I sent the board layouts they have in Github to a place that makes prototype PCBs, ordered a fistful of components to solder onto those boards, and will be building a few from scratch. What could go wrong?

I guess I'm late too :) searched a lot few months ago but wasn't able to find one. ;)

Ah! I have just done the same, my boards turned up today

I'm curious, how much bucks for how many PCBs?

Ofc I'd like too see pictures here from your builds :)
Thank you

It was 5$ for 10 boards I think, the bigger cost is all the other parts. I was planning on putting all the ones I don't want on ebay. (assuming they work!)

Be careful with the chip, seems there are some variants or revisions out there!?
Some of them make sleep mode problems, battery drain, but don't know details.

I messaged spheresolid recently and due to world events he won't be making any right now, but hopefully if things change for the better he will do another batch!

for now, anyone avoid modchipcentral for the PSVSD if you need one at least until I post back on any of mine from there working. I have 5 more on the way from them plus I have one non working PSVSD that is grounded properly from them. The one they sent me has proper grounding but the PS Vita hangs on boot with an SD card inserted. If the other 5 do the same then I will assume that none of the ones they sell actually work.

Yes, I actually ordered 5 more just to hopefully get a working PSVSD from those, especially since shipping is 15$ for even one of them.

EDIT: Definitely AVOID modchipcentral unless you are going to order several.
Out of the 6 I got, only one worked and did not freeze on the enzo logo.

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
