    Please help me decide as to which MiniSD card to get-

    Kingston, Transcend, or SanDisk

    I've found good prices for each of these for 1GB.

    Actually Sandisk cards are rated as one of the worst performers in the Castlevania FMV test:

    Sandisk 1GB - 3
    Kingston 1GB - 4-5
    Transcend 1GB - 4.5

    So get either a Kingston or Transcend card. [​IMG]


    TBH the whole deal with card speeds isn't a big issue though... I have a bootleg Sandisk 2GB mini-sd card which infact only has a 1GB capacity and gets a 2 rating on the castlevania test (if that), on my SC Mini-SD and Castlevania aside there is no slowdown/pausing/lag in any games in either gameplay or fmv.

    Yeah I changed that Kingston to 4-5, when the first fmv plays I would rate it 4.5-5 but on second play I rate it 4.

    I would go for Kingston for the lifetime warranty.

    A-Data all the way. Kingston is great too. I got a 2GB version, that gets 5/5 on Castlevania. A friend has a 1GB kingston that is also 5/5. We had to "tweak" the card to make it work tho. Here is a quote from what I found on another board:
