    32gb seems only available for kingston when i searched.
    And the 16gb sandisk costs about the same a the 32gb kingston.
    Can someone confirm if kingston works any well at 16 and 32gb sizes?
    Would be perfect for fitting all wads.

    Kingston is a great a brand as Sandisk. Sandisk is much faster though. It's why it costs more $.

    weird. it says the kingston one has issues...yet I have that one, and it works fine???

    It could vary from batch to batch I suppose.

    Then please add your result to WiiBrew, maybe with mentioning from which country your card is.

    I don't meant the country where you bought, i meant the made in xxx. China, taiwan and japan would indicate not even different batchs, it would even indicate different fabs.

    Oh! my bad, lol. 1 sec.

    k, fixed.

    since you seem to know about cards, what exactly do all these numbers mean?

    I have no idea, i think everything, the fab, and the batch and the number inside that batch is defined there, but i don't know more.

    I've never tried kingston... so I can't give you any advice that way. But I've used plenty of SanDisk and I've NEVER had a problem.

    I bought a kingston for my digital camera, and it kept corrupting, then bought a different brand (dunno which now) and it worked great! so i'm not too keen on kingston, but it could've been a one-off

    Kingston usually offers lifetime warranty in several of their products, namely SD cards and computer RAM. You might want to take that in consideration.
