I ordered an 8GB sandisk microsdhc card today off ebay and realized it was a class 2 after I purchased it. The card I have now is a 2 GB class 4. Is the slower write speed that noticeable? Will I see any lag in my games?

It depends, your Flashcart will primarily be reading from the MicroSD card not writing. You really have no idea what the read speed will be until you get the card. If you know the country of manufacture (probably China), you can probably find a few speed tests from other people who have the same card.

Also the class speed is purely a minimum speed, they can often be much higher.

It's very risky buying SD cards from eBay though, many are often fakes.

some games will get slowdown in that, IIRC Castlevania (sp?) is one in particular.

buying flash from ebay can be risky, but usually if the seller has good feedback it is okay

    I don't like popcorn at all; bland taste, and it got ruined for me because of high school - the school cafeteria reeked of microwave popcorn for several days...utterly revolting, couldn't even enter the place it stunk so bad.
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Nah, for movies I'd rather get a bag of lollies instead of popcorn.
  • Costello @ Costello:
    lollypops? a whole bag?
    +1
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Not lollipops; what Americans would call "candies" or just "candy" IDK. Before the pandemic, cinemas used to have buckets of different ones - sour cola, sour watermelon, and many others; I used to get a scoopful of two or three types into a paper bag to have throughout the movie.
