    Just picked up 2x 8GB Kingston (Class 4) MicroSDHC cards from newegg for 35.xx w/ free shipping. The reviews keep coming up that the card has writes above class 4, something like 7~8MB/s write, 11MB/s read.

    Gotta be careful with some of those cheap ones just due to transfer rates alone.

    So I'll have 16GB in the PSP, move the 8GB in it currently to my DS, and then move the 4GB in the DS to the Wii. Move the 2GB in my Wii to my Sansa Fuze. Gotta love these lil Micro SD's!

    So, still no reply to my post, so I'm going to ask again.

    Does someone here have a site that lists/compares the various PSP memory cards for speed on the cards 4GB and higher? I'm thinking like the 4, 8 and 16GB Sandisk vs Sony Mark 2 cards as I'd love to read up on it.

    I don't like Blackspeed as much as PSXReality because it's less accurate, but seeing as i can't recall where i saw a PSXReality results topic it'll have to do.

    Check here for a relatively big list of speed test results for a range of sticks.

    Thanks. Damn that's just terrible even on the first page. Real sony gets as low as under 1MB a sec on some transfers, and then the marked FAKE SONY and SanDisk stuff gets like 2x times faster moves. Wow if that's legit, that's pathetic.

    Many Sony MS arn't made in Japan anymore. The factories in China just simply don't have the technology or care to make a good quality MS.

    I was thinking of checking on ebay.ph. Ya never know.
    And if CDR King knows anything about those things.

    Yup. Found a lot of listings on Ebay.ph and they're for 400php with free shipping. Might work.

    Yup! They're the dual slot kind~
    Bolster that with two Kingston micros and you're sold~

    Now back to my original question: How would you use it as an MMS? Would I have to go through the entire process of installing 5.03 again and then ChickHEN and GEN C on one stick?

    I'm not sure you can make the photofast sticks into a MMS, but from what I've heard, it kind of formats the two together, so instead of 2x8 GB you'd have 1x16 GB, with slowdowns in games that are saved on both sticks.

    If the photofast has Magicgate support, it can be turned into a MMS. Check before you buy.

    I've been considering this option for a while now. From what I've read, Sandisk is the quality brand I'd want to buy, but they stopped producing class 4/6 microsds, it seems. Would using two class 2 16 GB Sandisks hurt the performance? I don't give a damn about slowdown in the XMB as long as backed up games run full speed.

    Thanks in advance.

    I use a class 2 16 GB Sandisk and I haven't had any slowdown problems.

    Ok, received my memory stick. To all who want to piss on DX, card works fine, no complaints with read/write and play speeds. $20 well spent.....or maybe I got lucky??
