    ... can anyone recommend a good place to look. Had a scout round and PC World are selling the Sandisk 1GB for £109 - which is obviously far too expensive.

    I've got a 1GB stick on the way, but I wouldn't mind picking up another 1GB or even a 512Mb today - can anyone recommend any high street stores that may sell them (at not too ridiculous prices).

    TIA

    Si.

    ASDA have them a bit cheaper (go to the camera/digital photo bit!)... still way too expensive for me though!

    I'll keep an eye out - though I was hoping to pick one up today (does anyone sell them that would do refunds after a couple of days - evil, I know!)

    Cheers all - just to add, Argos are doing 1GB Pro Duos for £82.99 - still a bit pricey for me (at the moment), but if anyone is interested...

    eBay is the only reliable place to get memory sticks at a cheap price. I got a 1gig Sony High Speed for my phone for 52.98 including delivery. No high street store or e-tailer is going to beat that.

    Yep ebay is great, if you look at the auctions rather than buy it nows you can get some wiked bargains.

    I got a 512mb card for £16 the other day + 6 quid postage but its still well cheap. Postage however was 86p to be exact.

    I too purchased a Memory card off Ebay but was very annoyed to find that the card was corrupt and had been tampered with.
    I dont think i'll be bothering to search ebay again thats for sure.
    Of course i know that it could've been one in a million but have since heard of similar cases. :mad:

    I had no problems, and nor have other people I know that have cheap ones. Its probably best to get from a seller that accepts returns on faulty items

    I've bought two cards on eBay. Both had no problems. I can give you the name of the guy I got it from if you want?

    And very reliable to boot, I highly recommend them. www.onlinememory.co.uk are pretty cheap too but as everyone else says, you can't beat Ebay.

    I've seen 2gb sticks going for £100 inc postage or less on the bay, seems like the best place to shop. Just use a reliable 'bayer and you should be kool ;)

    I've just come back from France and 1GB sticks were 99 euros in the shops. That's about £70 or less, so why are ours so much more in the shops?

    I wouldn't, unless you want to treble the thickness of the PSP.

    If you go to Woolworths and buy ANY PSP game you get a scandisk 512MB memory stick for half-price (£30). That's not too bad I reckon. I had £20 of Woolies vouchers so it was a good deal for me.

    If you wait a couple of weeks the PSP giga pack will be available. That's basically a PSP value pack with a 1GB memory card and USB cable included. Think that's gonna be about £210. When that's available I reckon memory card prices will fall.

    Hope that helps.
