I have recently purchased SDSQXAF-128G-GN6MA card. I’ve noticed a discrepency regarding application performance, on the packgage it states it’s A1 but on the card itself it reads A2.
I’ve run read/write test on it and I got 80Mb/s for both read and write, I used aja system test software. I haven’t run full capacity test yet.
Also the card is red/gold but on Sandisk website it seem that 128Gb cards are black.
Another thing I’m not sure about it the warranty, is this supposed to be 10 years rather than life time?
Are the above indications of the card not being authentic?
I must have bought from the same batch - got 3 of them from Amazon (not market place). Going on holiday v. soon and don’t want to be left with non-working memory for my GoPro.
All Amazon would say is that “they only sell genuine products”.
Amazon have stopped selling whilst they investigate.

I have run some tests and got around 90Mbps for both write and read. On top of that I’ve ran lengthy test with H2testw and that seemed to inidcating around 120 ish Gb of memory. So far was using the card in mavic 2 zoom and gopro 5 to shoot 4k footage, so far so good
I’ve reached out to SanDisk as well and they got back to me with the following:
