I never paid attention to 48K MSX1 machines, I thought they went straight from 32K to 64K but if the experts say so, there must exist some of the 48K variety as well.
Edit: I found this discussion on the MSX.org about best (and worst) MSX models, which can be useful to some people:

My latest display of MSX love: A relatively simple, single IO Port expansion slot, so I can use my V9990 Powergraph Lite and use the FM sythesizer features of the GR8NET cartridge, along with the game/megaflashrom in slot 1.
This doesn't do any sub-slot decoding, so the expansion slot select is given fully to the slot closed to the edge connector. This allows the GR8NET cartridge to continue to do the subslot work it does without any hassle.
The extra slot, then is only for IO port devices, such as the V9990 enhanced display cartridge.
Audio is 'mixed' from both, and DATADIR and INT signals from both cartridges are properly sent to the MSX.
It isn't big enough for the old really big cartridges like the original Powergraph But I wanted something more compact.
I stuck some rubber feet underneath the board to support it.
Now I've tested it with the Myths and Dragons game recently released that uses all 3 of these cartridges.

How is that game in your setup?
Pretty fun... It sounds good and play is smooth. I'm using a Panasonic FS-A1FX (the 2+ without built in FM)
The game is too big for the GR8NET's ROM Mapper, but fits in the MegaFlashRom...
It feels like something I'd play on a SNES which is a good thing.

I just purchased a Panasonic FS-A1WSX expanded to 512k but I am new to MSX. What SD card options do you recommend?
This is also my "daily use" MSX. Sexy as hell. :-)
You should definitely grab a Megaflashrom from www.msxcartridgeshop.com. That piece of hardware + a software called "SofaRun" would solve all your gaming needs, you´ll be able to run about 99.9% of the entire MSX library.

For those willing to give a try to an mx1 this is a web emulator with quite a lot of games to be selected by a menu
Uridium48 is the freeware version of a port done of mine
This is original mine instead
I've also developed the voice coder used in this Salamander patch
Very nice to see you around here Artrag! :-)
Uridium is a really solid piece of hardware and only gets more impressive when you are aware of MSX1 limitations.
I was lucky enough to grab a copy a while ago.
