I cuss you bad
I was trying to give TerraOnion a fair chance after the first tweet. Maybe it wasn't as bad as it first appeared - he really dug in there, didn't he? What a grade A wanker. Anyway, I'm definitely up for some more Everdrives.

While I'm certainly not a stranger to holding my nose and buying products from iffy individuals/companies, I don't feel there's enough of a quality gap (if at all) to justify choosing them over another solution.
(hey did you guys know that the largest OEM memory card size for Gamecube is only like 8MB? So the smallest microSD I happened to have onhand is still something like 32,000 blocks).
Do you need to softmod the console to use this or is it just plug and play?
This is probably what you're going to want on a slim PS2. The system has USB ports, but they're USB 1.0 ports, which means data transfer is slow and games don't run well, particularly those with full motion video clips. The memory card slot has faster data transfer, but memory cards are limited in size. However, they can be made compatible with SD cards, as the technology is fairly similar. You either pay about $20 for an MX4SIO, or cook one up yourself by bridging the connections of a micro SD card adapter to the pins of a memory card (note: it must be a Magic Gate card; third party memory cards without this technology work poorly, or not at all). I haven't tried it myself, but it's within the realm of possibility even for soldering klutzes, requiring mostly straight point to point connections with a resistor or two added.
