In a time when memory is becoming more expensive and portable devices thicker with each new version, Sony has clearly demonstrated the advantages of its external memory brand. It is thin, portable and the perfect time to upgrade your device to the future of technology.

Don't buy it for PSP

When formated in PSP, the information shows "Unknown" under MagicGate. PSP supported music and especially the video files do not play. Wait until a driver available for PSP to support it.

Perfect For my PSP-3000 and HX50V Series DSLR Cam

By DarkMakor

from Homestead, FL

Comments about Sony 16GB Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX:

It's the Best, the Fastest, and the Maximum Memory that the PSP supports, it's effective, does it's job, and i absolutely love it. it was worth every cent. it also works for my HX50V which makes it that much better. just like the first review said the speed is just fantastic with speeds of up to 40 to 120 MB/s transfer.

Perfect for the RX1 - It's roomy

By RXIchiban

from Arizona

Comments about Sony 16GB Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX:

This memory stick is about the size of my thumbnail, but quickly stores thousands of 23 MegaPixel images from the huge files in the RX1. Moreover, uploading images to my MacAir happens in the blink of an eye. The previous model came with a USB adapter that also works with this model. I hope that Sony makes another USB adapter so I can carry one on the road. This chip has taken hours off my workload because I really have not had to wait to work on my images. It keeps up with the RX1 for picture perfect compositions. HD videos transfer in a snap. I would recommend it as a "must have" accessory for any high resolution digital camera such as the Sony alpha, NEX or DSC series. As a result of my newfound spare time, I have spent so much more time taking pictures that I am filling the chip in a week; so, I may need to buy another 32 GB memory stick to switch out with this first one every other week.

    HG Memory Stick is Awesome

    By NoraAnn

    from North Carolina

    Pros

    • Endless space
    • fast...

    Cons

    • Expensive
    • Limited Availability

    Best Uses

      Comments about Sony 16GB Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX:

      The Sony HG Memory Stick, its so much better than the Pro Duo. I don't know if it's my imagination, but my Cyber-Shot camera is faster. I don't have that annoying delay anymore. Somehow this HG memory stick compensates.
      Also, I needed the 32GB of space, to record short videos of our son while my husband is away. This exceeded my expectations especially since the lag time between shots have significantly diminished.
      I have recorded several videos already and I still have more than six thousands shots available. I don't have to delete anything and my husband can see it all when he returns.
      However, I really want to say thank you to Ann for expediting my order. Our son was graduating in a week and this item was not available in any of our local stores, and there was limited availability online, but Ann made it happen. She was patient and courteous and we sincerely thank you Ann.

        Cartridge Comparison Guide
        • Cartridge Types
        • Ink & Toner Basics
        • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
        Cartridge Type
        Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
        Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
        Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
        Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
        What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
        Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
        Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
        Material Liquid ink Dry powder
        How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
        Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
        Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
        Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
        Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
