    One is high speed. One is not. Self explanatory really.

    If you're buying it for the PSP, just get the normal one. The PSP doesn't take advantage of the High Speed sticks AFAIK.

    Yeah, but you will notice the diff with high speed when you transfer files from your PC to your MS

    Interesting to see that SanDisk outperforms the Sony, which is a tad suspicious since SanDisk makes the memory cards for Sony.

    I love my SanDisk 1gig

    Try www.valuemedia.co.uk - great place for media. Have 1gb cards - phone/email and they'll probably source a 2gb one as well.

    I got mine from eBay. I think it was 63 including postage. Which was a pretty decent deal for a 1gig.

    Me too!, I just fill it with around 2/3 movies at a time.

    I paid around £62 for mine off eBay too. 1gb is definately the way to go.

    There seem to be a lot on ebay for about £35 + about £15 shipping from the US.
    Anyone used any of these guys?

    Just discovered that I can use them in my Sony P910i aswell - which I have already had problems with because I ran out of memory on the 32meg card.

    I used a guy from the US. I wouldn't bother with the Hong Kong people. If they have high feedback, just go for it. My guy had something like 2000+.

    Actually scratch that - they want another £11 on top for insurance. Rediculous.

    61 isn't a bad price though. Besides, that's how most people on eBay make their profits - overcharging on postage.

    Don't need one that much. At £35 with some reasonable delivery, I'd get one. at £61 delivered, I won't bother.

    61 is still a good price. You won't find one for 35 with decent postage anywhere else. Hell, you probably won't find one for 60 with decent postage. I'd go for the 61. Like I said, it's how they make their profit, and some of the cost of the memory stick is in the postage. Saves on eBay fees too.
