    I have a choice of buying a Transcend 1GB (133x) or a Kingston 1GB or a Sandisk 1GB. The prices are $59 (Aus), $59 (Aus) or $66 (Aus) respectively. I would like to go for quality more than the cheapest but if the cheapest is quality then that would be a plus. Could people who have used any of these cards please point me in the right direction and tell me about their experiences please? Which is the best one to get?

    the fastest micro sd Transcend do is the Transcend 80x 512 MB microSD (TS512MUSD80)
    i dont think theres any micro sd cards with 133x yet

    My SanDisk microSD 1gb isn't that good.
    It's slows and lags some time in the game.

    I am not sure how other memory stick would do.

    Get a Kingston.

    It runs much better and doesn't lag/skip unlike the Sandisk.

    I've notice that running at 4X is also better, no lags whatsoever except in Animal Crossing (big problem ATM with every MicroSD)

    ok so as long as the card speed is good enough, the 256 size wouldnt affect me at all is that right?
    thanks.
    and thats bad to hear about animal crossing.. its one of the games i wanna play and have in my SCDS all the time
