    Default Should I get this memory stick?

    My question for you all - should I get this 16 GB Memory stick pro?
    http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.15682
    I realize it's not a real Sony memory card, but it's still cheap for 16 GB, and at the moment I can't afford a legit Sony card, and right now I only have a 4 GB. What can I expect from this card? Slow read/write speeds? Anyone else buy this card?

    Discuss away.

    If you don't get legit cards, then all you can expect is bs from the card. Get a real one.

    I said I can't afford a legit card.

    Fake = 36 bucks,
    Legit = 60 or MORE

    Well I mentioned what you will get with a fake card.

    Slower read/write speeds
    Random Corrupted data
    Some games/plugins not working
    Not a reliable stick for Pandora / exploits / homebrew

    plus the fact that it may only be a 1GB chip spoofed to show 16GB

    get this http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.16489 and 2x this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820208506

    To be honest, I'm not too worried about corrupted data, because everything is saved on my PC. And slow read/write speeds are no problem. But there's another card I could take for about an extra ten dollars. A legit Sony 8 GB. 8 GB less than the fake and more expensive then the fake....

    So all together, it'd roughly be around the same price? Hmm...I may take that road now that you mention the PhotoFast. Except I heard some reviews that weren't too good about that. Although, for 5 bucks, I'm sure it'll be ok. And the x2 8GB Micro's would come to about the same price as the 1 16 GB. so all in all it's not a bad choice...

    Definitely do not get a fake memory stick, my friend got one a few months back just because it was so cheap, it wasn't spoofed or anything, but it was fake, and just about a week after he got it, while he was playing a game, the game froze. He turned his PSP back on, and the psp wasn't even detecting the memory stick anymore. He put it in a memory stick reader, and the computer wouldn't even detect it.. my advice, obviously don't get a fake one, chances of this happening are probably slim, but hey, it still happens.

    Alright, I originally wanted to just get one item from one site, now I have to get three items from two sites. Oh well.

    So, I'm going with the PhotoFast and the 2 8GB Micro SD cards.

    Thanks for the advice guys.
