Works in my SE P990i
February 20th 2013 Verified user
Needed more storage for my old SE P990i, wasn't sure this would work but it does. Now I have plenty of space for podcasts on my long journeys but I haven't tested properly whether this card is any faster than my old 1 GB one.

Sony's packaging is somewhat bulkier than it needs to be (hence only 4 stars) but was easy to open using scissors. The accompanying software ("Memory Card File Rescue" and "x-Pict Story for Memory Card") must be downloaded from Sony's website.
