    Which MicroSD Brand is better? SanDisk or Kingston? By better, I mean. . .Faster, less likely to break, and is built with good Quality. Ty [​IMG]

    Branded SDs are usually pretty good. I've heard good things about Kingstons but I've always used Sandisk MSD cards and I've never had any problems. Also Samsung MSD are meant to be pretty decent but don't quote me on that.

    Since I used a Kingston, I'm going to be biased.

    Kingston, or Sandisk (used that too, for my camera, camcorder, and for a short while, DS).

    As long as the µSD is branded, you shouldn't have any problem.

    i've heard some bad storys about sandisks corrupting, but my brother's got one and it's only corrupted twice, and that was because of his R4.
    I'm using a kingston, never had any trouble with it. All branded MSDs are pretty good.

    I've been using an 8GB Samsung SDHC card for about 18months now with zero problems. I have an 8GB Nokia SDHC card too which isn't quite corrupt but something is certainly wrong with it. My 2GB Kingston mSD card works very well too, nothing ever wrong with that...

    I'm not sure who Nokia use to make their cards but whoever it is is crap at making cards!

    shouldn't this be a poll?

    I have used both Sandisk and Kingston without any problems, i think Kingston are supposed to be really fast. i remember everyone talking about the kingston 1gb japan because it was the fastest card around and best compatibility on the ds at one point.

    I also had great experience with PNY and there cards also have brilliant read speeds way past there class rating
