Kingston 1gb MicroSD made in Japan seem to be the mem card with the best performance for slot DS carts.
If you know of places to find them, please post here.



Thanks

I bought a 1GB Kingston/Taiwan from newegg.com for $17.88 after shipping.

Over @ gbatemp people have had luck from here:
http://meritline.sto...ro-sd-card.html
But, there is no guarantee it is a Japan model everytime. About 50% JPN 50% TWN from what I have read. Maybe you can email them?

SD-C01G is the model number for the JPN 1GB if you are searching the web.

Well it arrived today, and yes it's the Japan version W00t!
It auto detects at 30x on the DS One, which is much faster than my SanDisk which clocks in at 4x.

These are dropping in price really fast. I remember only a few months ago they were $40+ for the 1GB.

Just wanted to let you guys know that I had just ordered 6 of these from meritline and 5 were made in Taiwan and only 1 was made in Japan. I just got them a couple of days ago. My luck must be really bad.

You know... I actually put something similar to that in my comments section too and they actually sent me an e-mail saying that they couldn't promise the Japanese version and asked if I still wanted to place my order. I told them 'Yes' and I got 2 Japanese cards. So did my comments make a difference? I have no idea, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

I just order two of those 1 GB Kingston microSD cards from Meritline today. For those of you who also ordered there how long did it take you to get it?
