The card does actually work, so I can't complain on that. But, I think that it needs to be made clear that what you are getting is not what is advertised.
Also with a used card there may be data already on there. Just overwrite the old files.
Here's some friendly advice: Never use third party for important save data, I've learned that lesson with Gamecube cards made by MadCatz. Unless you're using it for games you don't care about losing the data for, always go official. Third party is cheap for a reason!
Essentially, get a memory card if you need one, because they work and they're pretty much all you can use anyway.
Sure, you're probably going to pay more per unit of memory with Sony brand than otherwise. However, there's one HUGE plus in favor of Sony: RELIABILITY. From my experience and those I've read of others, you are less likely to get corrupted files/save problems/sudden and inexplicable save files deleted with an actual Sony card.
Years ago, I used a third party vendor memory card. It had something like 25 different pages with each page containing 15 blocks of memory....like having 25 Sony memory cards in one. Cool, right?
Overall I was pretty satisfied with it. But I did occasionally have issues with save files being deleted and eventually, after about 12 years of use, it suddenly and inexplicably stopped working. All my save files I spent hundreds of hours creating when I was a kid...gone. And apparently my PS1 won't even recognize that card anymore.
Fortunately, I'm older now and video games mean MUCH less to me than they used to. But still...it would have been nice to have kept those files. Or to have at least known that I was running a risk with a third party vendor. If I knew then what I know now, I would have stuck with Sony.
And that, dear reader, is my advice to you. STICK WITH SONY. I bought two 15 block Sony cards and I love 'em. Though you may have problems with yours (and I might someday with mine), your save files will probably be safest on a Sony card.
