Default Lexar memory stick vs Sony in Cybershot P52.

Time to buy the first extra memory stick for my newly purchased Cybershot P52.

Obviously you get much better value with Lexar but is there any disadvantage with that memory brand compared with Sony?

Thanks,

David

I have a Sony DSC -S30 and have used a 64mb Lexar memory stick for about a year. I haven't observed any difference at all. And, right now you can get a 128mb memory stick at amazon.com for $28 after a $15 rebate from Lexar. I just ordered one....it's and incredible deal!

Just been to town and amazed to find almost all shops sold out of 64 memory sticks. In talking to one chap about when they'd have some in he commented Lexar would be no good for me as I use a Belkin card reader...he says Lexar memory sticks only work with their own card reader.

Could that be true?

David,

While I can't be positive, I highly doubt that a Belkin reader wouldn't read all memory sticks. I did a quick web search, and when I found descriptions, nothing indicated that Belkin readers only worked with certain brands. Was the gentlement trying to sell you a different brand that he had in stock?? To my knowledge, Lexmar memory sticks are fully compatable. ....mine works in my HP printer and sony camera. I don't use a card reader. Personally, I think you were getting a line of baloney.
