Default What is OEM product?

I was looking for Samsung sdxc pro 64g UHS-1 in Ebay and I found one which is cheaper than others, but its retail package is not like the others, so I sent a message to ask if it is genuine.

This is seller's answer:

"Hi there, this is an OEM product made for Samsung, which means that it's branded Samsung but an outsourcing factory made for them."

I am not sure what their answer means. Should I buy this? and does z1 support uhs-1 ?

I'd be shocked if SS re-branded any product especially storage related, given they are one of the leading developers in storage technology.

I just fonund the SS micro sd card that I mentioned above in Ali express and ...OMG...it seems fake and it's amazing in other way.

They advertise the memory card whose real capacity is 8gb but recognized 64gb when connect to PC.

I cant tell if you're being sarcastic or not, however, "Ali Express", whats that? sounds like some dodgy online scam shop, true? Or was that your point?

OEM is "original equipment manufacturer" which is authorized by Samsung company to manufacture Samsung spare parts. Samsung company has Research and Development Center and owns several manufactures, which can't meet the demand of high output. So Samsung has to authorize some outsourcing factory to make their spare parts. These products are called OEM products.
