You can't be sure you are getting a high endurance card, and they could still be faking the more expensive high endurance card with a cheap commodity model. It sounds fantastical, but stranger things have happened.
I highly doubt that counterfeiters would buy real lower end Samsung cards and repaint or rechip them to higher end ones. The price difference is not that great. With this amount of paranoia I would stop buying any cards.

Received the 128gb version - everything checks out so far (packaging, print, physical card, Samsung Authenticator software).

No buying these on Amazon as they have fakes mixed in.

No they are same factory but maybe rejects due to performance issues etc.

But for products that are *only* from third party sellers? Nup, not for me.



Doesn't look to be a high endurance card. Not equivalent to the card listed in the OP.
As a 'bonus', you're generally giving up waranties when you buy via 3rd party seller, since most manufacturers require you to buy from authorized dealers

I don't think there's an easy solution without Amazon totally redesigning how they handle "fungible" inventory. You'd need to separate items by seller or have a tag identifying individual items (bar code, RFID, etc).

they already have ASIN number, convert it into a barcode?

Do you work for Samsung? Rejects are called that for a reason. A reputable company will never sell rejects nor give them into a possession of others, not let them authenticate as genuine. Rejects are rejected before they are painted. Besides, you replied to a conversation about repainted other models into endurance. All this doesn't make sense. You can always find a reason not to buy SD cards. I have lots of Samsung endurance microSD cards bought from USA Amazon and sold by Amazon in security cameras and RPis and they have worked for years without issues.

need something good and lower price..
Thanks for the link. I used this one for the Wyze v2 I bought few years ago. Just checked my old order (2019), the memory card went up 50 cents.
I hate to speculate. I hate to forecast. I am just proactive.

Never got a counterfeit sold by Amazon, heard it happening for others but personally haven't had a problem.

3rd party sellers the chance of counterfeit goes up exponentially. Except if seller is actually the manufacturer, such as Silicon Power.

its much cheaper as pack of 2 :)
1 shows $10.99 but pack of 2 makes it $8.50 each so i guess cheaper by $2 than your old order :D

Just finished running h2test and finished without any errors :) . Card seems legit.
