    Default Lexar Memory Stick Pro Duo 1Gb Review



    Review from SuccessHK

    <blockquote>PSP owners should all be familiar with the 32MB memory stick that comes with the purchase of the Sony PSP. This small amount of space is capable of saving all of your game files, as well as a few songs or a few minutes of low-quality video. With the release of the 2.0 firmware recently, the PSP is not merely a holding device of games, but a multimedia device.
    It currently supports a variety of photo and music files and can even display video in 4:3 and 16:9. However, a lot of owners are missing out on these features because of their 32MB restriction.

    Luckily, Lexar put this problem to an end. The Lexar Memory Stick Pro Duo 1Gb is capable of holding not only your save files, but also several full-length, high quality movies, hundreds of .mp3 or ATRAC3 music files or even thousands of photos. Obviously it seems a right decision, but some PSP owners still have concerns involving performance issues. After benchmarking the Lexar Memory Stick Pro Duo 1Gb against the stock Sony 32MB Memory Stick Pro Duo, we can finally put all of these concerns to rest.

    Well there you have it, the Lexar Memory Stick Pro Duo 1Gb outperformed the stock of Sony 32MB Memory Stick Pro Duo in every single aspect imaginable. Strangely enough, transferring photos is unbearably slow on both devices, but that is more of a problem with the PSP*s hardware than the memory stick. Surprisingly, even the PSP*s web browser had noticeable speed increases just by switching to Lexar *s memory stick. Unless you intend to just use your PSP for playing video games and nothing more, then you should definitely consider a Lexar memory stick.

    The files transferring speed of Lexar Memory Stick Pro Duo 1Gb is much faster than PSP`s has been proved, however the owners focus on its price. Unless you intend to just use your PSP for playing video games and nothing more, then you should definitely consider a Lexar memory stick.

    The 1GB memory stick just sold $89.

    While there is no absolute answer regarding capacity, the best we can do is give approximations of how much data can be stored. Although it*s advertised as a 1GB memory stick, only 949 MB of it is usable from the start, due to system overhead. Depending on the length of the movie and the quality, you should be able to fit 2-4 movies on the memory stick without a problem. We managed to fit 2 hours of high quality of footage with enough excess space to hold save games. Again, with the music the number of songs that can be stored also depends on quality and length. Roughly 350 .mp3 should be able to fit on the memory stick, but we would recommend going with the ATRAC3 format to save space without sacrificing too much sound quality. The file size of pictures won*t vary from the PC to your PSP because it is now able to support everyday files, like .JPG formats. In short, the Lexar Memory Stick Pro Duo 1Gb will be more than satisfactory for your portable multimedia needs.

    In conclusion, the Lexar Memory Stick Pro Duo 1Gb is clearly the best memory stick available for the PSP. Not only it is the highest capacity memory stick on the market, but also it outperforms Sony*s memory sticks. Simply put, if you*re ever going to buy a PSP memory stick, buy from Lexar.</blockquote>

    I find it rather annoyign that they didn't post any actuall data besides the disk space... makes me think it's not that much better than the sony stick.
