In another thread, I've been advised to get a Playsonic for memory expansion.

Since then, I have spent some time investigating 'contemporary' MSX hardware, and I think I found something that suits my requirements better than the Playsoniq: Padial's SD card reader. For 140 euro, the PLE-MMC-V7JBUFF has the following features:
- SD reader
- 4MB extra RAM
- 2 additional slots
- cartridge case.

So basically, it expands the memory with an enormous amount of 4MB and it has an SD card reader for easy exchange between PC (for example ROM's found on the internet) and the MSX.

Does anyone has experience with this product and/or this hardware supplier?

I do not have a Padial SD card reader, but I bought from him a 4 Mb expansion that works like a charm in my A1-WSX and arrived quickly and perfectly packed.

He's a reliable hardware seller.
Mind that this cartridge doesn't have DOS2 on board. You need that to browse around on your SD cards.
I might as well obtain me such a thing once in the future, since CF cards are too hard to find lately.

Indeed it's a more complete solution than the Playsoniq (SD+RAM is the MSX killer-combo). About the Padial card, there're some incompatibilities with some specific machines; but AFAIK they're not listed nowhere and I can't remember which machines have issues. You can simply ask Padial about your model...
