    I would recommend the ATP ProMax brand myself if it's available in your geographic region. You get much better performance to price ratio than you do with a SanDisk card for example.

    No, this is wrong, Kingston and Sandisk are the brands that work the worst with the M3.

    Get an A-Data one.

    The M3 wiki is the place to check.

    Personally I use a 2gig OCZ SD card, I'm very happy with it.

    I prefer A-data myself. Gets a good 4.5 on the castlevania rating. I have a 4gb card so dont know for sure if its the same on the 2gb card.

    sounds like the lesser the name brand, the better it works XD

    I think kingston is better cause it supports lifetime warranty

    sandisk work fine for me, I've got both the 1gb and 2gb cards, never had a problem with either on the M3
    According to a compatibiltity site I use, the kingston cards suffer in the GBA department.

    This thread is actually kinda relevant to me right now. I just purchased an M3 SD (the old, super-big kind) on the cheap to have as a secondary flashcart to my G6 Lite, when I get it. I'm having a tough time finding a 5-on-Castlevania-Test SD card for a low and agreeable price -- my fiancee bought a 2GB PQI SD card on the good word of the M3 media card compatibility list for about $63 USD shipped awhile back, and that card has served her quite well, but I definitely don't want to sink that kind of money into this. I'm thinking $20-25 including shipping is my upper limit to work with here.

    As a long-time G6 user, I'm not even considering SD cards that don't score perfectly on the Castlevania test. Framerate slowdown is a cancer-like plague that ruins enjoyment of videogames for me, because I'm wicked petty about that stuff. Right now I'm looking at a 1GB PQI 150x off of Newegg, but that's gonna be 28 bucks after shipping so I'm definitely open to finding something cheaper. Anyone have any recommendations?

    Thanks, guys.
