    I wanna buy a 4GB Micro SD card from ShopTemp and want to know that the Sandisk is 12$ and Kingsto is 13$ so what is the difference and what lasts longer and is more reliable?

    Kingston is better...

    It also doesn't matter unless you're a perfectionist or some weird thing.

    SanDisk, more chance of a lemon with Kingston.

    Shoptemp had a little trouble with Kingston in the past, but they resolved that and there hasn't been a single complaint with their stock since.
    I'd suggest the Kingston over the Sandisk, when Kingston's are good, they're better.

    Actually, if you were going to buy just a microSD, I wouldn't buy from Shoptemp in this case.
    Try and find a good canadian retailer online and see if they have some better microSD cards, ones like A-Data and Transcend are pretty popular.
    I have a Samsung Plus and it's great.

    From my experience Kingston keeps giving me trouble, and that Sandisk is working really well for me. But it really depends on who you buying from.

    Though I recommend Transcend over these two brands.

    To avoid posting a whole new topic, if i bought a class 10 mircro sdhc would the dstwo ndsgba emulator run with less lag on pokemon? or does the class thing make no difference on flashcards?

    Just a healthy tip, I bought a 32GB Sandisk Micro SDHC card rom amazon.com for $50 and i had no problems with it, and when i didn't use it for games, i used it to transfer files from my computer to my laptop when i bought it, and i NEVER had any problems with it.
