    I'm trying to decide on a 16GB M2 for my PSP GO.

    I want to go with the Sandisk because it's cheaper, but I won't buy it if there's a significant lost in performance when compared to Sony.

    So if anyone is using these, I would like to know if there's any difference in performance?

    A 16GB sandisk is about $20 shipped.....magicgate is supported right??
    A 16GB sony is about $40 shipped

    I don't have a 16 gig sand but I do have a 4, and I can say that magicgate is supported. I've never had any problems with it.

    I have used a 4GB SanDisk MS Pro Duo in my PSP since I got it (until today, just recieved a Photofast cr-5400 dual Micro SDHC to MS Pro Duo adapter), and it has worked perfectly for me. I haven't used a Sony to compare it with, but PSN downloaded games seemed to load quickly and videos etc. always played perfectly, so I guess the transfer speed was good enough. I would say you will be perfectly safe going for a SanDisk. I have also been using a SanDisk micro SDHC card in my phone for a while now, and it's working grand, and I got two more of them for my cr-5400.

    I know how well a sandisk work in a psp 3000 but I'm more interested how good their M2 is when compared to sony.

    I'm pretty sure it'll be a little slower, but is it enough to spend the extra $$ for a sony brand?


    UPDATE:
    I just ordered the sandisk 16GB M2 for my PSP GO.
    I'll report the cards performance when I get it.


    UPDATE(2):
    I just got it and it's working perfectly
    magicgate is supported, and so far no lag on any games

    good thing I didn't over spend by going with the sony brand
