I have recentely bought 4 microsd card of 64GB for my tablet and camera and ... from iBOOD.de, Today I got them. I spent hours trying to prove it to myself if they are not fake. I used h2testw. At first it was recognizing like 60MB, but after formatting the microsd card (in windows ntfs) it could recognize it and here is the result:
Warning: Only 60814 of 60905 MByte tested.
You can now delete the test files *.h2w or verify them again.
The only thing making me still worried is the small label on back of the card having the serial number on it. It looks like an attached black label, not looking really geniune to me. Here I put some imges:
Here comes the black label. I even tried to peel it off. But stopped doing it as I could see some part of circuit showing up.
I still keep the other 3 cards unopened, to be sure that they are geniune.
I appreciate your help, if you just could tell me if the black label on back of the card , with serial number and made in Taiwan is normal for this type of cards or not.

SanDisk also detrimental to with these fakes.
2- If we see, the pins all have "irregular" edges. A junk.
3- It would be interesting to compare all the codes, other containers.
5- Check, that in all adapters, readers and "memory card" (as well as its other devices) Sandisk, is have engraved logo and the serial.
Ie, all the data necessary for technical, commercial and legal identification.
5- Compruebe, que en todos los adaptadores, lectores y "tarjeta de memoria" (al igual que en sus otros dispositivos) Sandisk, se ha grabado el logotipo y el número de serie.
Es decir, todos los datos necesarios para la identificación técnica, comercial y jurídica.

Hello and thank you,
so do you think the RMA process is applicable for this case? I mean if I can use RMA service and ask SanDisk to check the product if it is geniune or not?
I tried to peel the label more. I see some dot-circuit parts. I couldn't peel more, because it got very difficult.
here some photos:

OK, I got a relatively quick answer from sandisk after my contact by email:
here is the response:
..........bla bla bla ....
According to the posted photos in the forum, I am glad to inform you that the card is a genuine SanDisk product.
As I can understand in the beginning card was not working properly as well being recognized as 60MB, however now the issues was resolved. Please let us know if you are facing any further issues with the card so we can assist you further.
Please provide the below information so that we can verify the authenticity of your card and register it for warranty purposes:
- Date of purchase (MM/DD/YYYY)
- Please also provide your phone number (we use this only for follow up on your case should it be needed and do not use it for other purposes)
Please note that the best way to ensure you are purchasing an authentic SanDisk product is to buy from an authorized SanDisk reseller.
I will register my microsd's and then I think I will be covered by sandisk support if enything goes wrong.
Thank you forum guys, thank you SanDisk
