    Too good to be true. I wouldn't chance it. What`s "UPGRADED" mean.


    "High storage capacity (upgraded to 32GB/64GB may hold less),"

    Hmmmmm formatted to say has more space probably

    They all seem to state the "may hold less" thing now I notice. I wouldn't risk it to be honest. I've had enough cheapo Chinese SDs and USB sticks that have lost all of their data.

    If you really want to go for it, make sure it doesn't say any hints about reduced capacity as mentioned above. Also pay via credit card via paypal.

    Then if he does mess you around just do a paypal claim or chargeback and chuck his shitty card in the bin and put it down to experience.

    Thanks to Over Carl

    Default cheap micro sd cards on ebay

    Looks fake as , some of sellers selling fake sandisk (looked legit)had positive feedback of 10's k's and the odd one their called out on they refund seller for full amount so. They still leave positive feedback, Go figure ! People trust eBay sellers to easily IMO even play got caught selling load of fake cards

    Read about one that showed full capacity but would just write from end of card to start again and overwrite data. For a large card this could take a while to notice and people snap 10-20 shots, think all is good and leave positive feedback.

    I just bothered to read the listing.

    It looks like they may actually be 8Gb cards.

Please note that whilst these cards are brand new and have been shipped to me straight from the factory they are sold as upgraded cards and therefore the capacity and speed may vary for each card, (They may experience read/write errors once max capacity reached.)
