    I bought from there and got a Taiwan card. :-\
    I guess it's pretty much random. It's a great deal though.

    I've got four Kingston 1gigs, two from japan and two from taiwan. It seemed to be totally random which I got, but they all seem to perform exactly the same, PoR and all. I wouldn't worry about it.

    I bought from there, got the Taiwan card and they are not responding to any emails.

    I asked before I bought if it was Japan made and not Taiwan made and they LIED to me.

    Beware their shoddy customer service. [​IMG]

    I got 1 Japan and 1 Taiwan...they both work fine. Tried PoR and Tony Hawk on the Taiwan, no problems so far.

    Spam hitting start/select when you get to a shop, or keep spamming a/b/x/y when you are in the dialog screens. It will crash, guaranteed with the Taiwan version. [​IMG]

    If people keep complaining about which country their card is made in, they are going to raise the price.

    I don't think the shops can order the Japanese or Taiwanese versions of this card separately. When they order Kingston 1GB MicroSD they get one or the other or a mix. Some smaller shops have had only Japanese versions but I think that is only because their volume is low and they got lucky when they got their shipment. If they did come on separate sku's you know NewEgg would be selling them that way.

    I received my MicroSD and it was from Taiwan. I tried it a bit with Castelvania POR and it crashed once when pressing the Start button in a save area. I turned it off and turned it back on and tried doing the same thing again in the same room. No crashes were encountered when pressing the Start and Select buttons multiple times. I guess it's one of those things where it will happen randomly. But for the price of the card it is a bargain. I might buy another brand if I feel I cannot play my other games. [​IMG]

    I am in central valley Cal. Ordered last Friday and received them the following Friday (today). But there was a holiday weekend in there, so I guess it could have gotten here quicker.

    Just checked the package and it shipped from City of Industry, so they are a lot closer to you.

    BTW, got one Japanese and one Taiwan [​IMG]

    I went to Future Shop today to see what kind of Kingston 1GB microSD cards they are selling. I notice it says "Assembled in Japan" on the package. Is that what it says on those who claimed their cards are made in Japan?
