    I emailed them just a few weeks ago and they said they wont assure you will get a Japan made Kingston so I ordered from digitalmediaoutlet.com and was able to request a japan made on after I placed the order.

    if you're in the states, check bestbuy.com for deals as well. I picked up 2 2GB sandisk micro sd cards for 84usd including shipping. they were having a sale with 20% off all of their mobile phone accessories (which a micro sd card is considered) when you ordered 2 or more items.

    About a month ago Newegg had a deal on a PNY 1GB MicroSD where after rebate, you GOT 15 dollars BACK. So in effect you got a free 1GB MicroSD, AND you got 15 dollars!

    Meritline.com has Kingston 1GB MicroSD (SDC/1GB) for $9.99 shipped. I ordered 2 of them on Monday and received them Thursday afternoon. [​IMG]

    Thats such a rip off. You can get a 2GB microSD for $22-25 shipped after rebate.

    I know, BestBuy or any giant commercial electronics store is a rip off. My Bestbuy has 1gb cards for $80. And I think they are Taiwan.

    Some small computer shops have them for cheap though. My local one sells them for $20.

    I use newegg.com (since 2002) for 90% of the electronics I buy. I just recently ordered 4 Kingston 1GB MicroSD cards and it cost me $47 shipped and arrived in 2 days. There were all Kingston Japan too!

    I was considering buying from newegg but after reading their reviews it was a 50/50 chance you would get a Japan microsd. So I opted to buy it from ebay where I could email the seller and ask if it was a Japan model or not.
