Default What is your experience with SanDisk 64gb cards and the Note 2?

The lack of a 32gb Note 2 means I would have to use a 64gb card with it, we're I to purchase the phone. I currently have a 32gb S3. I originally bought a 64gb card with my S3 but experienced nothing but problems with it. When I go to the SanDisk support forums it appears I am not the only one; lots of people report the exact same problem, the card would basically die after 1hr to a couple of days. Card would show as damaged on phone, require a reformat, reformat would fail. Nothing could be done after that. I have used both a SanDisk and a Samsung 32gb card for years in various phones with no problems of any kind. When the problem happened with the 64GB card, I returned it, was told it was defective when it didn't work for the seller, was given a replacement, and the same thing happened. The seller just returned my money and said they didn't want to sell me anymore cards because they didn't know how I was f'ing them up. They couldn't get them to work again either. I ask because this is the only thing keeping me from buying a Note 2 TODAY. Anyone using a SanDisk 64gb card with theirs?

I've been using a 64GB card since I received my Note II on release day.
The only trouble I had was when I flashed an aosp ROM and the card was formatted exfat instead of fat32. I ran chkdsk on the card and it was fine after that.

The note 2 handles ex fat. My 64 worked perfect out the box. I have 40gb of movies loaded up and it never has failed

I have three 64 gig sandisk cards & have had nothing but trouble with them, I would NEVER buy another one.

I have had two replaced under warranty and one of my current ones is acting up.

Since I keep them backed up religiously to my PC I don't worry too much about it, but they are complete junk IMHO.

I went through 4 64gb cards before I got one that has worked. Had it since a few weeks after the gsiii came out.

This seems to confirm that they are unreliable, at best. Can anyone suggest a reliable seller to buy from? Maybe I should pay the extra and get direct from SanDisk.

I was just going to go buy one today and found this. I was going to buy it from bestbuy or staples. Does anyone have any suggestions on another brand to buy at those stores?

Nothing you buy is going to have a 100% success rate and it won't please everyone.
I think most posts you see about the Note 2 sdcard will say sandisk 64, and I believe you will see the majority are satisfied.
