EGO-360 256GB MicroSDXC UHS-I card with USB Adapter

Found some info from the developer:
Hi Guys,
My name is Jonathon Dodge, I am the lead designer for EGO-360. We developed our new range of microSD cards out of necessity, we were buying thousands of cards every month and our microSD providers were aways giving us delays, price increases and excuses. So I designed our new cards with the best component supplier Samsung. Our class range is class 10 cards are driven by SDR50 and our UHS-I by SDR104.

Now unlike some manufacturers that advertise fast speeds that are way off, we have the average speeds on our website. We test 30 cards in 3 groups, 1000 times. The three test environments ( Hot and Humid), ( Cold and Dry) & ( Office 22C within an Electromagnetic field). We write an encrypted code up to full capacity, verify & delete ( not format) 1000x per card.

Our cards work in most devices that I have tested, I have a 256GB SDXC card (exFat) in my Samsung S4 and the fastest it writes is 13.75mbytes, which is slower than some others.

We are users that have become manufacturers to support users like us....

Kindest Regards,

Jonathon

The owner has a stand at parklea markets with a set of other products

Plenty of people have modded using a microsd to sd card adapter and have successfully used larger than 64 gb cards, so I'm guessing it'll work. I'm seeing a mystery chirstmas stocking for myself from myself:D in the near future...hopefully.

i'm sure it's not availble yet, even the large companies hasn't released the 128gb, so a company like is is unlikely to have them, i'm sure once you place the order, it's a pre order and no release date.

To be sure, ask them to post or send a photo of the actual 128GB or 256GB version instead of posting a 32GB version.

Did op order? Because until somebody orders and verifies thread title needs to be changed. The description quoted just reeks of scam and all the pictures show 32gb generic micro sd's with generic USB adapters to boot.

sent from my sm-9005.

Jonathon Dodge here, this not a scam and I took that picture quickly to get something into our product descriptions. We have had an issue with the packaging of the first shipments due to it's size and it fitting into our accessory blister packages of our other products. So with the new packaging coming through this week, my graphics team with take some pretty pictures and updated the product profiles and apologies for any inconvenience.

Our first two shipments were sold before they even hit our door to people close this project and our third shipment will be shipped by air on Thursday to our international buyers after coming through customs here in Australia.


We test 1% of every shipment for quality assurance and everything comes to me in Australia before the cards are shipped out across the world.

I have attached my Korean team's average sample h2testw jpg for you to review and if anyone would like to ask me a question, Im happy to help.

Kindest Regards,

Jonathon Dodge

Ordering or Not Ordering microSD cards

still doesn't prove anything.

Thats a fair comment, however we primarily developed these microSD card for ourselves and thought we would put them them out there is see what would happen. We never expected to sell any... Buy or Don't that's an individual choice, we bundle them with our other products.

Kindest Regards,

No, i have not yet purchased this product but am highly interested.

Please release a video of the chip in operation. And please send the chip over to a reputable site for review. If they are too lazy, i would be happy to review it ASAP for you it you send me one.

There is a big market out there for this, especially since Phones are now quickly replacing our PCs as our media hubs and the only slot they have are MicroSDs.

i'm sure everyone is interested, including me, i've tested hundreds of micro sd in the past, and I won't mine doing one for this, thats if they really do exist.

No. I'd rather let anand shimpi and Brian klug REVIEW it first. Then let it trickle down to lesser sites who will give their opinion about it.

Ouch! Engadget maybe LESS TECHNICAL than Anandtech, but certain more exposure.

For something as simple as a SDCard, you hardly need an enginner to review it.

Funny to hear someone speak with such technical elitism so brasionly.
