Re: Good micro SDHC cards to buy

Hi!

This is my first post here Smiley Happy

 

Can someone recommend a good ebay seller?

I am looking to buy a 16GB card for my fuze.

 

Thanks.

Re: Good micro SDHC cards to buy

I have used the Kingston 2 gb cards in the past for video and music and they are fine.  No problems at all.  Dirt cheap now.

I have used a Kingston 8 gb and it did NOT work for videos but was fine for music.

I bought an 8 gb Sandisk Class 2 and it is fine for both video and music.

There's a bit of confusion because the class-rating system apparently changed so some amazon sellers were advertising Class-4 and then shipping Class-2.  I heard that Class 2 is now the old class 4.  Who knows; this is not an objective report by any means.  I can tell you that the Sandisk 8 gb Class-2 card works problem-free on my 8 gb Fuze for both music and video.

Re: Good micro SDHC cards to buy

I haven't experienced this myself, but I've read and/or heard about a lot of crap & counterfeit cards coming out of China through dealers on E-Bay. I shop on E-Bay quite a bit for other things, but don't know as I'd want to risk buying a memory card there. Better safe than sorry.

 

Here's a few on Amazon.com in the low to mid-$50 range. They're all SanDisk brand. They all seem to have outrageous shipping on them pushing the price up to around $60, but at least Amazon's partners are reliable. Smiley Wink

Re: Good micro SDHC cards to buy

I got some info on other forums where ppl buyed from certaing sellers on ebay so I ordered one. 53$ with shipping, not bad.

Seller has a 99,7% rating, and 32000 positive reviews so, I trust him.

 

Amazon is no option for me, since I live in Croatia, and things from Amazon usually get through the import customs service so they add at least 30% on the price.

Things from ebay which cost less than (let's say) 80$  come through usual post service with no extra costs.

 

Will recommend the seller if everything works out fine. Stay tuned, I'll report my experience here Smiley Happy

 

Thanks anyway for the info.

I bought an 8 gig from Amazon for about 20 bucks. I tend to always buy Sandisk products because I've never had any issues.

I just got the 16GB card from ebay. 52$ including shipment.

Shipment from U.S. to Croatia (Europe) in just over a week. Excellent.
Everything works fine Smiley Happy 14,8 GB of free space, I have just put 9GB of music on it and fuze was refreshing the library for about a minute.

BTW It's class 2 card, and no worries about speed of that little thing.

 

Bought from ebay member "fastflashstore". Highly recommended.

 

Cheerz!

I believe the SanDisk microSDHC cards are all Class 2 at this point.

Re: Good micro SDHC cards to buy

I paid for bulk package, and it came in retail SanDisk "Wake-Up your phone" package.

Seems like the real deal, card looks original to me, including all the serial numbers.

And capacity is definately real, I got over 9GB so far on it.
