    Where'd you get that one from?

    I don't know anything about this stuff, but it looks as though I'll be getting an Acekard 2i for my NDSL, and I need an sd card.

    I heard Sandisk are inferior to Kingston, but I also heard Kingston are inferior to Transcend and AData for cards over 2gb, I also heard that 16gb cards don't work very well.

    What are the best sd card in the 4gb - 8gb categories? I will be playing Castlevania: POR and I want 100% or as close to that performance of retail cartridges as possible.

    One more thing, I need to eventually get an sd card for my Wii, so it would be nice it if could also function in that capacity, (I already have an adapter).

    Away from you.
    Kingston is shit - they just rebrand cards and sell them (if you don't believe me, check this out)

    Sandisk Class 2's are TOTAL SHIT. Any other Sandisk are generally ok.

    Transcend and A-Data Class 6 are the best.

    Funny because my sandisk is a class 2. i wil retest and post a screenie. It is a very fast card. It was second hand from Cex, cost £6

    Here's the result, its not too bad.

    Lol.

    Sandisk class 2's generally aren't THAT bad, I'm being pretty harsh.

    But they do have an ultra-shit latency (something along the lines of 25000) so older methods of AAP won't work on it.

    In this thread, someone says they bought a 8gb Kingston instead of a 8gb Transcend Class 6, so I'm still not sure, what do you think?

    I'm also reading Transcend are fragile and some people's have stopped working.
