    I've noticed that sometimes when pressing the button to change game, the blue LED stays on and the game never changes. I have to eject the cart and re-insert to get it working again.

    Only happens maybe once every 30 or so presses, but annoying none the less.

    Anyone else experienced this?

    Damn. When I bought it I put a fair bit of research into it and made sure I didn't buy a cheap/fake one.

    Never heard of qumax lol. SanDisk, Samsung, Kingston, integral are a few of the decent ones.

    Defintely can't go wrong with sandisk or samsung unless you bought off ebay. Haven't had any experience with kingston.

    Good for you.
    As I said above Kingston sukc. Why? My SSD broke 2 times, mSD cards are slow and losing data. I've never had any major or even minor issues with SanDisk or GoodRam products.
    I'm using Sandisk for GW Emunand and roms also with Sky3DS.
    Kingston, every class mostly wont work on my equipment: consoles, hd camera, audio recorder. Maybe it's just me and I didnt have enough luck getting non japanese kingston products.
    PS FCR-HS3 Milti card reader for nand backup wont recognise partition on any usb3 usb2 port on any pc. Transcend RDP5 works flawesly.

    It's a matter of personal opinion. I have no beef with their SD cards, but their USB memory sucks, for instance. This is only anecdotal evidence on my part, but I have several USB thumb drives and only the Kingstons keeled over. In fact, I have two dead DataTravelers on my desk in my other house that just died for no reason, and they were well-kept.

    Using a PNY 32GB class 10, I gotta check how much space I have left. But seems fine.

    I agree.
    Samsung is my new brand of choice. All my SD storage and SSD's are by Samsung and I never had a single issue.
    Meanwhile I burned through 2 Kingston MicroSD's after 2 years of usage on my NDS.
    Never had problems with Sandisk either.

    Yeah they're slowly losing my business. At one time I did consider them a good buy but its as if they decided to cheap out. Never again, sandisk or samsung. PNY is ok too.
