Thanks ordered.

Good deal, tricky part will be testing to make sure its genuine.

Amazon has a pretty bad rep with fake micro SD cards.

Amazon used to allow anyone to sell such products, but they now prevent 3rd party sellers (or only allow 'approved' 3rd party sellers that can verify purchasing sources etc).

There are programs that'll do that for you, I've been using h2testw.

That's a good price and it can handle 4K recording.

Do you mean SD cards in general, or just the brand names?
A quick search turns up several 1 TB SD cards for about $20. I guarantee those are fake. Amazon clearly doesn't take such fraud seriously.

3rd party sellers maybe but this is sold directly by Amazon themselves.

As long as the max supported size is at least 64GBs, this card should work fine.

I've never experienced it, but supposedly Amazon mixes stock with third party sellers so you can still get a fake.

I would be shocked if that was the case but I always just register my card with the manufacturer as soon as I get it. I bought a sandisk 512 for $100 on Friday from a 3rd party seller and had no issues with it. Registered with Sandisk and advertised speeds with h2testw.


As long as you get Amazon fulfillment you should be good if it passes the testing.

I believe several RFDers have experienced it. I guess they could have made it up, but I doubt it.
I'm not saying no one should buy from them. If you have the knowledge and patience to use h2testw it's fine.

I'm not sure why you mention Amazon fulfillment as making it okay. This card https://www.amazon.ca/DASHAC-Adapter-Te ... 07SD5ZJJ2/ is clearly fake, despite being fulfilled by Amazon.

Just mean you can test it and if it fails return it with no hassle.

Thanks! Just bought it for my wife's macbook pro. I wonder how stable this would be for full-time storage.

Buy the new one and return it under the old product listing (I don't believe they're serialized, if they are, just clone it and return the old one).

Obviously YMMV on this but I've gotten SDXC devices to work in devices that only support SDHC by formatting it fat32.

It may appear to work but you may not be able to access the full capacity. I know this was the case with my Fiio X1. 400GB card seemed to be working fine but files were missing.

Personally, I don't really trust SD cards for long term storage. They're also slow so I don't think it's a great option unless it's just for media and things like that
