    I have a Kingston 1GB There's a long number on it then the model type, I think:

    SD-C01G JAPAN

    Is that the fast Kingstons that people say are good?

    I know there was a rating chart floating around somewhere for MicroSD cards, rating how good they were. Anyone happen to know where that is?

    From what i hear you want a Japan Kingston instead of a Tawian.So im guessing its a good card.

    I have the same one i think.
