    Is one memory card better than the other?

    Advertisement



    Hey guys,

    I was looking into getting a 2gb memory card for my Pearl. Are any of the cards available better than the other? I seen a few threads were people were having problems and just want to make sure I get one that people have the most success with.


    Thanks,

    Joe

    1gb kingston card online for 9.99 at meritline.com, works great. To answer the question, yes there is a difference. If you have not heard of the company that makes the card ask here first b/c it could turn into an issue.

    Some people just prefer some brands. and/or pay more for a brand.

    you take your chances with an off brand company compared to a reputable company.

    You can use a 4gb microSD card with the latest OS, but get it from a reputable source in original packaging. Some sellers can counterfeit cards.
