Bought one of these last year for the same price. Weird they haven't budged downwards any further.

FWIW, even if sold and shipped by Amazon, there have been instances, reported here even, where the card was a fake. However, being S&S by Amazon makes returns a heck of a lot easier if needed.

Fyi samsung did not recognize amazon (or anyone truthfully) as a vendor. Any warranty claim needed to be done with amazon.

Of course, a retailer isn't responsible for a manufacturers warranty. At $14 i wouldnt care but good to know what you're buying

This happened to me a couple years ago. Ordered as shipped and sold by Amazon and both cards I received failed Samsung's own authenticity test tool and also h2testw. Write speeds were also way lower than an equivalent Samsung card I later bought in a brick and mortar store for comparison.

Fortunately was able to return to Amazon without any issue, but still an inconvenience to have to repackage the cards and physically bring them to the post office.

Last time I bought one of these from Amazon it did not perform as advertised for read/write speed. I called Amazon and they put me through to Samsung tech support. The guy was pretty clueless and wanted me to take the card into a service centre for repair. What a joke that was. Long story short is I sent it back and always test these cards after you buy one.

A lot of people here report getting fakes from Amazon, I'll balance that out by pointing out that I've bought about half a dozen SD cards from Amazon over the last few years, both Samsung and Sandisk cards and I ran them all through h2testw soon as I get them and I've always got legit stuff.

solid cards, bought a 64GB and 2x 128GB at these prices back in late 2019!

My 64GB has been going strong in my dashcam ever since, even though it's not a high endurance card. Can't say the same about Sandisk.

Going to pass on this. I need to start using smaller SSDs to transfer files over for friends and dedicated SSDs with their faster read/write speeds seem to be the way to go. Just need Walmart to drop the price on them again. Put those Emtec 256GB SSDs back down to $29.99 like they did with the 512GB ones. They seem to be stuck at the $60 price for the past year but they also seem to be a discontinued item...

Agreed. Not to denounce anyone getting fake cards, but all my Samsung/Sandisk orders from Amazon have been legit.

Yeah, not saying those folks are lying, I believe them and I agree there's definitely a risk of recieving a fake card off Amazon. I just wanted to balance it out because sometimes looking at these threads, you'd think Amazon only sell fake cards which isn't true but there is a risk. As others have pointed out, always buy a card that's shipped and sold by Amazon for easier returns in the event you do recieve a fake card.

I'll add to the chorus, test them immediately.

I bought one last year and didn't get around to it for a couple of months and the card can't be recognized or formatted... bye bye money

Samsung has its own authenticity test tool. It doesn't re-write the whole card reducing its lifetime like h2testw does. When testing speeds make sure you card reader and USB port can reach those expected speeds.
I bought 30+ Samsung microSD cards from Amazon and had zero fakes. If you get a fake just send it back immediately. It's simple.
