$15.30 in dollars before conversion which paypal does automatically.

mate bought some DS stuff, got three memory cards with them at the same time- - all of the cards had the same serial number - all the packaging had poor holograms

Safe to say they weren't authentic cards...

Why vote cold?
Ive not said they are sony or san disk but they are under half the price and have some decent reviews.Mine works great in my sony phone :-)

You dont specify your type of memory cards even?

Dont know what your ds has to do with this???Just because you had a bad experience this is a good price for item and a good company

Hong Kong fake.

If anyone cares to argue otherwise, just shutup and allow your small brain to cook whilst I enlighten you. That message is ONLY to those who think they're right just because they've had one that has worked for a while.

These cards are deeply inferior. Whilst they will hold data, said data is in huge danger of being randomly lost. random faults can develop at any time, and they have no warranty whatsoever.

The majority of buyers of fake cards complain of these faults.

Spend that wee bit extra and buy genuine cards. You won't ever regret it.

had one of these for a few weeks. the card is slow but a bargain for this price.

This is half the price of the other memory card duo listed.I'm guessing the ebay crowd are voting cold without listing a reason!

thanks ordered one

I agree transfer rate is slow but there is no laggiing in games (PSP)

works fine in my phone for storing music and pictures

Had no problems with fake cards apart from slow loading

voted hot matey

Deal extreme good cheap site but would be dubious of buying memory from there. Also some cards for similar price on Play and ebuyer (authentic)

It didn't work fine in my girlfriends digital camera. She lost nearly all of her T in the park pics.

Another didn't work fine on my friend laura's w900i. it crashed the phone no matter what way she formatted it.

Another didn't work so good on my friends psp to play final fantasy crisis core or certain anime movies.

They are not reliable. And the offer has been posted many many times before.

They are fake cards. Have no warranty and your data is just not safe on them.

Original Poster

This offer has Not been posted before
Just because it is not a specific brand name does not make it a fake!

Don't get too defensive... you're just adding oil to their fire.

But just to help you a little, this card sold by Deal extreme isn't marked as a brand name. Technically, it is not a fake. It is just a no-name brand pro-duo card.

If it were to be marked as Sony/Sandisk, then yes, you can argue that it is a fake card, however, in this instance, it is not.

If ASDA or Play or any company for that matter came out with a Pro Duo card, it is simply a "generic" pro duo card. It's not fake.

Fake implies copied. This product isn't copied. Don't refer to it as a fake card.

I agree with some others though, I've personally use this card before and it is really slow compared to a Sony or a Sandisk, but it seems to work fine. Start up time for some of the newer PSP games will be a little slower as with the seek time on movies (if you converted it) but other than that, it doesn't seem to be a problem.

If you are worried about your data, don't use this card for photos then. Other than that, good price for a generic card.

THIS IS NOT A GENUINE SONY PRODUCT!!! There is no SONY logo.

Although there is no logo on the packaging on the site, when it arrives, they do say Sony on.

They are FAKE FAKE FAKE, and i don't care that they are half the price, all the people that are buying these are supplying a market to sell fake goods too. They are far inferior quality, they are slower, and will not last 1/4 of the time an original would.

FAKE! WASTE OF MONEY. Voted cold and spammed

You sir are wrong for several reasons. The card you receive from DealExtreme will be labeled as a Sony (see my pic). The only reason it doesn't say Sony on the website ad is because DealExtreme were smart (shady) enough to photoshop out the trademarks to avoid angry customers and legal action. The other thing to note is that only Sony and Sandisk are licensed to manufacture this card (possibly one other company too, I forget the name though) so anyone else doing so is producing fakes not "generic" pro duo cards as you put it.

I have one of these cards and they are total guff. Transfer speeds are terrible, PSP games are laggy and the card itself is falling apart at the seams!. Don't waste your money!. Why HDUK keep allowing these known fakes to be advertised on their site I don't know :?. DealExtreme are normally a good site but this is fake tat, avoid!.

so its not ok to buy fake cards but its ok to play illegal PSP games?

The term "fake" is used in this instance because these cards do not support Sonys Magicgate standard.

They are cheap, but are not worth even the low price due to performance, reliability issues mentioned above.

Thanks for posting the deal though OP. Don't be discouraged from posting more deals :-)

It's perfectly legal to back up UMD's onto a memory card, to put all your games on, save dragging lots of UMD's around

Actually, the card i received doesn't look like that at all. It's got nothing on it except a white sticker circle sticker with a diametre of about 6mm with 4gb printed in the middle in black. I didn't even get the plastic box you have in your photo, simply the card in a plastic container. It is more an OEM card than anything.

Don't tell me what I received when you are not me. The card worked, I didn't care.

Mind you, a stack of companies out there make types of cards without a license.

If there are only 3 companies out there with licenses to brand pro duo cards, then legally, any non-branded card, non sony/sandisk/3rdname card is technically illegal and sony can take action (as they are the holders of the original license). So being tricky and taking the brand off packaging means absolutely nothing when the card in that manner should not exist.

Feel free to notify the relevant agencies as if there are to be no other producers of pro-duo cards other than the 3... then you might get yourself a reward for reporting it...

Who are you to accuse him of being a pirate?

There are three reasons to use isos of a game over the original disc, which is perfectly legal, provided you own that disc.

1 - Battery life is extended by hours.
2- No noise from the disc spinning
3- games load at least three times faster from memory card.

These are fakes. Plain and simple. They are not magicgate supported, thus, they are unlicenced, FAKES. Not OEM. That only applies to the likes of SD. Pro Duo is a sony licenced property.

I love it when the idiots on this forum think they know better.

Like i said in my original post. Those who argue are going to come out looking like the idiots they are.

You know me? the poster said it was laggy playing games off card, now as far as i can see its illegal, can you point me to a link that says its legal to put iso's on card?

You're missing the reason why DealExtreme have taken the Sony branding off the pictures on the website.

There was a similar card a while back that had sony erased from it. on deal extreme and feedback reflected it.In fact most people were very pleased with it I recollect/ If these were, I state were n the loosest term to come with sony branding then that makes them even more of a bargain.

However the item is reviewed on Deal extreme so please let people judge for themselves.
It is not a fake.Nothing states that in the reviews.
It is generic.
Now can the few stop wrecking deals for the rest.
If you have genuine evidence and can back it up not only with photos but receipt then fair does but this is called scaremongering and unfair.
As always you should vote on the deal and price.

It is a fake!. Just because people on DealExtreme can't tell the difference doesn't make it legit. Also I'm sure DE wouldn't allow reviews claiming their items were fake to be published on the website. I have provided a picture of the FAKE card I received is that not enough?. More info on how to tell a fake pro duo card from the originals can be found at this eBay buyers guide ]HERE. I fail to see how informing people that these cards are known fakes is scaremongering and ruining the deal for anyone :?. As I have said before there is no such thing as a generic Pro Duo card. The Pro Duo card is a proprietary Sony device and only they themselves and Sandisk are licensed to manufacture it. Even If it isn't labeled as either Sony or Sandisk it's still fake plain and simple.

OK people, the are only TWO companies allowed (licensed) to make memory stick cards theses companies are:-

Sony themselves
Sandisk

Cards made by any other manufacturer are counterfeit as they dont have the licence from
sony to make them, its not the same situation as compact flash or SD cards.

These cards are doubly counterfeit as they dont have a licence to make them and the slap a sony label on top of that.

Lexar and Datel are licenced too I think.

My lexar 256 I use as a magic memstick is fully magicgate compatible

Lexar that was the company I couldn't remember. I knew I'd seen another official brand of Pro Duo.
