    Default How are Transcend mem sticks?

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...211342&bop=And

    Im looking between these. I ordered 2 Sandisk microSD from newegg but they havent arrived. Upon reading the reviews, a few people stated the card is actually Class2 although the picture shows Class 4. If it doesn't arrive today I can call Newegg and get a refund then order 2 new cards instead.

    The Transcend card looks real nice and its a Class6 which the Kingston isn't. Im combining 2 with the 5400 in my PSP and the Kingston Class 4 actually have great PI. Im really debating on these cards in the link. Any opinions/experience?

    I got the transcend 8gb for my phone and I must say its fairly decent. I haven't had any problems with it after like 5 months of use.

    Back when I did DS stuff (which was when all the flash carts used CF and plugged into the GBA slot) I bought an 8GB Transcend CF. It crapped out with in a month. I RMAed it and the replacement did the same thing. I went through four before I stopped even bothering and just sold the replacement (since naturally they didn't even know the meaning of the word "refund").

    The same DS/cart worked great with other cards, so I'm sure it was their crappy flash memory (no wonder it was so cheap <_<).

    Says class 4, but people say the speeds are class 6. I'd go with this.

    The no name card in that link is temporarily sold out.

    Thanks about the Transcend information man! I think I may just go with the Kingston 8GB Class 4 card.

    Let me ask this, The difference in Class 4 and 6 and etc is mostly for write speed?

    I don't plan on constantly taking things on and off the card. I will probably fill both cards and leave them like that for 2-3 months then delete a few games and replace them. I just want two cards that don't lag up my games. Info?

    Im checking this out which seems to be the Kingston stick used in the CR-5400 thread netting around 400 PI.

    I never ordered from a site overseas however so Im not sure what kind of delivery time and cost I am looking at...ugh.

    Im ****** at Newegg right now...

    Possibly their CF cards had shitty QC, never had any problems w/ their SDs. Even bulk generic cards are fine if bought locally (bring back exchange).
