Ideal memory card for the Sony PSP, Was looking around for one, can get it cheaper on ebay, but wouldn't risk it, other trusted sources (amazon) seem to be £10 more.

A good deal. Very tempted, but have an adapter and 3x16gb micro sd cards for use when I go to Orlando in late summer. Still very tempted though

You might want to try a Photofast adapter and MicroSD instead of this. Damn 2005 era Sony and their proprietary memory card formats!

Thanks for the heads up on a photofast, do you have any recommendations on the class of the MicroSD cards? 4 or 6 enough?

From what I have looked up, it would appear you, may get away with a class 6, but class class 10 would match in all aspects the speed of basic Memory Stick Duo's.

I would also like to add... Buying the adapter (£2.99) + 2 Class 10 8GB MircoSDHC cards (£13.96 x 2 = £27.92) so in total... £30.91 (not accounting for any delivery), then this card is a good bet, since it will blitz along at 30MB/s and cost less

can get it cheaper on ebay, but wouldn't risk it.


Your protected on ebay, isnt exactly a huge risk

Except when after 6 months of working fine, your now obviously card goes completely **** on you out of the blue.

Do not buy memory cards from eBay. Ever.

The faster the better, but class 2 fine for photos class 4 and up minimum for video

If you use these in a PSP, the official ones have MagicGate: Enabled on them whereas fake ones are much slower and say MagicGate: Unknown and many Amazon sellers also sell fake cards so would not be tempted off ebay tbh.

So Consumer protection laws don't apply to online retailers? This starts to get into the whole "do you want an extended warranty sir?" .. and of course the answer is "no" because the item is actually protected for 3 years even if they say its 1 year warranty. However getting companies to honour this after year 1, is very hard because most of them operate outside of the EU. I tend to look at the value of the warranty (so for example I will always buy one from richer sounds, but never from Argos). I seem to recall (being a web developer) that you have 14 days from purchasing something from an online retailer to send it back because its simply wrong, let alone not working. They also have to honour the 1 year warranty even though they may insist that the manufacture of device has to deal with it.

Ebay has change their system now to track upto 3 years worth of history, which is a win for us when sellers offer a 12 month warranty, however im not sure how far their protection has been extended to deal with this.

I would take most of what I said here as a pinch of salt, since its all from the dark corners of my brain. Also im not anti ebay, use it at least once a week after searching here, googling products etc.

Of course buying a real Pro Duo would be better but they have such a limited use now. Using a Micro SD means you can use it many more devices than just old Sony ones (Even the upcoming Vita uses Micro SD).

I'm also not completely sold on the speed argument, if you were using a camera or camcorder then you do need a fast memory card because of the way it dumps data onto it but for a PSP I don't think it'd matter all that much.
