    Hi guys,
    I need to buy some memory for my psp 2000 (currently 2GB), and was thinking of using the 2 16GB micro sds inside the Photofast Dual slot adapter...
    I found one on ebay at a reasonable cost, but i just want to confirm (or be more sure) that the micro SDs are legit..

    Ebay link

    Thanks

    My personal advice would be to find a reliable vendor in your own country. I'm assuming you'll be filling that memory with content so in the scheme of things getting reliable genuine sticks is still an immense saving. Any time memory looks too cheap, it's liable to be too cheap for a reason.

    Vendors in my country are very overpriced.. that's why i went on ebay [​IMG]
    For example, a 16GB micro SD is $100(AU) link

    Do you mean look for Australian vendors on ebay?

    I never use Amazon, but from my limited knowledge, shipping takes 3-6 weeks cause i live internationally (International Standard).
    Does every order come with an option to use International Expedited?

    Is there not an Australian Amazon? Seems they have sites for most other major countries...But as I live in the UK I don't know about the international shipping etc.

    I'm just guessing here, but I think the worst that can happen is slighlty slower loading times or whatever. Once the game is loaded, I don't think performance will take a hit with a slow card.

    Netherlands, currently
    If you want a memory stick with such a huge size, that price is completely normal in my country.
    Rest assured, you won't need anything more than 2 8 GB sticks.

    I have heard some bad reports with the photofast pro duo adapter even some where it turned the PSP into a brick here on this forum, go with pro duo mark 2, where in OZ do you live?

    I dont trust retail shops with their prices, usually overpriced..
    Now im looking at 2 8GB microsds in a dual pro duo converter, but as you said that the photofast can brick the psp, im not sure which to look at..
