The image currently shows a plain Memory Stick Pro Duo but when the card came I found that it was actually a Mark 2. Mark 2's have improved performance so it was a very welcome surprise.
Once I'd formatted the card (3 minutes) in the PSP and moved everything over from my old cards I still had at least 4GB to spare. This includes 7 downloaded games from the PSN store, 2 full movies, 7 albums and some pictures plus the new comic store with the free Transformers comic. pretty impressive.
So if you have a PSP 1000, 2000 or 3000 (the old model, slim model or current non PSP-Go model) this is an essential purchase, especially considering all the games that are now finding their way on to PSN.
Scroll to the bottom if you just want the PRO/CONS.
Perhaps most importantly for PSP owners, this card IS Magic Gate compatible. Magic Gate is Sony's copyright protection technology. It verifies the licenses attached to purchased content. If you buy a memory card which is either counterfeit or doesn't specify that it's Magic Gate compatible, you simply won't be able to use your licensed content. This card IS Magic Gate compatible, and I have purchased & downloaded three games to this card so far and have played them without any issues.
The capacity of the card has a slight impact on the booting and loading speeds of the PSP. This can't be helped. The system needs to read and check the entire card each time it accesses it, so you will wait for a second or two longer than you would if you used memory card of lower capacity.
This card is Mark 2 which, on paper, gives it the same performance in terms of read and write speed as Sony's own Pro Duo 32GB.
The card doesn't need to be formatted once inserted into your PSP, and it gives over 29GB of usable memory.
The package the card is supplied in is easy to open. There's a small tab at the bottom right, just under where Mark 2 is printed. I opened the pack easily by simply pulling both sides of the pack apart using this tab. There's also a dotted line to cut along if you prefer to use a scissors.
Affordable alternative to Sony's own Pro Duo card - roughly £25 cheaper at time of review.

Although I don't notice any particular improvement in speed when loading games stored on this Mark 2 version compared to my previous regular Memory Stick Pro Duo, this wasn't the reason I bought this stick, and the loading times weren't long before anyway. I believe digital cameras make better use of the faster speeds. The stick works fine and it's big enough for me, so it does exactly what it's supposed to do.
I'm not sure if they are an awful company producing knock off goods or have just had the bad luck to be taken over by easily replicated fakes.
Four out of the five cards I have purchased have not worked, and only one of the non working devices was able to be reformatted using cmd, which worked for two weeks before finally kicking the bucket.
Unfortunately, when formatting the card in a vista pc/laptop, it only shows the card as a 2.9gb rather than a 16gb. I asked why this is to lexar online but returned the item whilst awaiting a reply from them.
Amazon again were superb in their returns details, supplying postage paid paperwork. They also posted the replacement card to me on the day I told them, meaning I received this the next day, again, excellent service.
I received a return email from lexar explaining that the card has to be formatted in a windows xp or 2000 system (not a vista). This is extremely disappointing as windows 2000 was released 10 years ago and xp around 7-8 years ago. Anyone with a newer pc may encounter problems formatting correctly. Luckily, I found an xp laptop - but still had the same problem with the new card (only showing a capacity of 2.9gb). I was about to give up but then found another xp laptop at work and it formatted ok in this, giving close to it's capacity (14.9gb of 16gb)- this is normal!
I have rated the item as 4 out of 5 stars only because of amazons excellent service. I do feel it should state that there could be issues when formatting with a non xp/2000 pc or laptop. This could save people a lot of time and energy asking why the capacity is wrong.
So far the item is working fine, now it has been formatted correctly.

So far so good. It will be interesting to see how this memory stick works longer term. Previous ones have given up recording video after awhile.Published 17 months ago by MikeP
Although the shape is the same as the one I wanted, this item does not fit, dimensions would have been useful as the camera is an older model Sony Cybershot - we live and learn.Published 19 months ago by Mrs. P. Hollington
