I am planning to buy a Sony W1 soon and notice that my dealer doesn't discount memory sticks too much. I found one on e-bay that is 1gb and is in what looks like official Sony packaging for an amazing price! Is this too good to be true? Are there "gray market" memory sticks out there?

Hi,

if you don't trust the seller (not good enough fb or other reasons), you should check out some online stores for memory.

Make sure to go to resellerratings.com before buying. If you want store names or want to ask me about a specific auction, PM me, as I don't think I'm allowed to post links to stores in this forum.

But generally, yes, it could be legit. MS (and other memory) in retail are horrendously overpriced, and you can find MUCH better deals online. Also, there are third-party manufacturers for MS (Sandisk, Lexar, ?), so you don't have to stick to Sony.

Thanks for the advice. IO did buy my W1 and so far it is great. I used a 10% off coupon and the balance on an old gift card to get a 512 Sandisc MC.

I recently purchased a W1. From a dealer on the East coast, i bought 2 sandisk 256mb Pro Duo memory sticks, for less than $80.

I bought yesterday at Best Buy a 512MB Sony Pro Memory Stick for 80 bucks. It's on a special witha 15 dollar instant rebate. I prefer those over the mail in's any day.
