    I haven't used them in PS2's but have been forced to use them in PC's in the past and they can be a little hit and miss

    Thank you.:)

    That are my Concerns about them.
    Little Space and Power needed and silent working but unfortunately "unrelable"...:(

    I've had some work for years without an issue, then some which are from the same batch die or just sit there corrupting data every 5 minutes

    Multi-card RAID with SD cards is a terrible idea... But PS2 would mostly (exclusively?) be reading from these so other than heat the cards would probably hold up pretty well over time. And there probably wouldn't even be that much heat as PS2 HDD access will be slow as molasses.

    Why not just get a decently sized SSD, though? Will definitely be cheaper than a SD card.

    Thank you for your Opinion and your Advise.:)

    I do not need not so much HDD Space (I am not that kind of Hunter and Collector...:D).
    120 to 500 Gb is enough for me.That is why I came on the SD Card Idea.
    A small,less Power Consumption,less Heat and Silent Solution.:D

    Thank you.:)
    That sounds so awful that I think I leave it and maybe have a look on the suggested SSD Solution.:D

    Thank you.:)

    Some of these cheap chinese SSD should be more than enough for ps2. Despite being cheap and chinese there are some serviceable ones out there, atleast good enough to meet your needs

    SSD is better than SD, has better heat dissipation, and will last way longer

    The black one is slim-sata (laptop optical drive type) so 1 more adapter you'll need ;)

    Yeah, get a SSD, it's very useful given how much time is wasted by reading some kilobytes every 128 MB every time the partition table needs to be loaded!

    Evertime when I read over this SD Card Adapter Thread again,I think,what a nonsensical Idea.:D

    Yes,an SSD
    would it be.

    Well, I have an iFlash.xyz SD to IDE (but 1.8" ZIF, won't directly fit the network adapter) and it's very well built :) but 30 €
