    There are quite a few on Amazon and I've watched some videos about Modsiah's adaptor.

    I was just wondering which one would be a better choice. Is there a difference between them?

    If you can find V1, the one that is hand-soldered go for the hand-soldered over machine soldered.

    just buy a cheap one. I bought mine for five or six bucks, so it wasn't the cheapest, but it also wasn't one of those $20 ones from certain sellers. it's a v3/4 one, and it's suited me. ;)

    If your buying one of the v1 types remember that they aren't supposed to come out of your vita and they do fail. I'd stick the to the v5 didn't a v6 came out. You can damage your card reader with the original. Which just leads you to wasting time taking it apart and ordering a card reader for it.

    That's the one I have. Works great and fast delivery.
    Also, the hand-soldered ones would not be a recommendation for newbies or those who still want to play actual retail games, as they require you to stick sh*t in your Vita to get them out, which could damage your gamecard slot over time.
    Or immediately, if you're not careful.

    I got the V3 Adapter, and I am now having a Issue:
    Will run a CPS2 Rom from it through RetroArch, and after a few Games, or a while, I can no longer be able to Access it. The only way I can get it to normal is to turn off the System, take the Card out, and re-seat it.
    Anyone else getting this?????

    That's the black one, right? I use that one as my main, with a 128gb microSD, and I haven't had any issues at all. Maybe it's a RetroArch issue?

    Yeah, the Black with Red. Not a RetroArch thing. I can Quit RA, then go to VitaShell, and it is not there. I Restart the System, and it is still not there.

    Boo. Maybe it's going bad? I hate to even suggest that, but I know you'd have all the latest required plugins for your SD2Vita...
    Anything else act wonky in relation to it, or is it just RA?

    Might be a RA Issue, but will have to test it. Will do a test with another Emulator or PSP Game, later

    Edit: @eighthdayregret - Yeah, thinking it is a RetroArch Issue. pFBA is not causing any Issues, and I have had that running for an Hour now.
