    Has anyone bought a bargain price mini-sd card like this?

    Speed looks good but no mention of access times. I'm tempted by the price as usually i bundle supercards/kingston memory for friends but here i could save a tenner.

    What do we think? Could it be much worse than a vanilla sandisk or kingston?

    Hmm.. it's a good price so it might just be worth grabbing it and seeing what it's like, though I don't image it being upto that much. Even if the card doesn't have a great access speed, Castlevania and to a tiny extent Animal Crossing are the only games in which slowdown is noticable, or at least in my experience and I have a crappy bootleg Sandisk card which gets a 2 if that on the Castlevania test. I also have a Peak mini-sd which is apparently comparable to a Sandisk Ultra II read/write/delete wise though the access times kinda suck... probably only manages a 3 on the Castlevania test.

    So yeah, Castlevania aside, even the slowest of cards are fine for most games, and you could always pick up a faster one later on when prices drop if you need more space or find it isn't fast enough.
