So i recently bought this microSD card:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...K%3AMEWNX%3AIT

I was really excited that 32GB cards had gotten this cheap and for a class 10 one I was ecstatic!

Turns out it was a dupe and the drive is not only slow as a turtle, it doesn't really hold anything. (put 10GB of stuff on it and after the transfer was complete I went to the phone and only ~5GB of stuff was on there)

Also the adapter that came with it doesn't even work with it, it only responded to my phone (whereas my trusty 16GB from Dane Elec worked fine in the adapter).

Here's the comparison of my badass Class 2 16GB and the shitty "Class 10 32GB"


Basically avoid any microSD sales from a user named: soundguyzbb
and I'd say it's safe to say that any microSD from the manufacturer titled "memorette" is bogus as well. I will attempt some of the other 32GB cards in this price range to see if there are any real ones.

This one will be going back for a refund tomorrow morning, I'll update if I find anything good or bad with my further market study

Doing some digging around I found Memorette looks to be a good company but if you notice their highest capacity on their own website is 8GB
The ebay ones all look generic and certainly different then the real deal, scammers gonna scam!

Idk but I just won a Class 2 ADATA 32GB card, I know they are a good company (I run an 8GB Class 6 SDHC in my camera from them and it's great) and am crossing my fingers I'll get another surprisingly fast card like the DaneElec 16GB.

Only cost me $40.03 with an auction, I saw some other brand name ones for $44, maybe slightly less. I'll be sure to make a review of the ADATA when I receive it. Ebay says it will be here between the 14th or 15th

Ebay put out an article to watch out for fake sd cards. Too bad you missed it.

I went with the 32gig class 10 lexar on amazon. Works great, amazingly fast transfer speeds!
