I just don't have any confidence in Buy.com - but what do I know?
I ordered from Rhinodata, an Amazon Marketplace Seller, a "bulk packaged" 8GB micro card w/adapter - and I got a little plastic case containing an 8GB micro card with full size adapter - just what I expected. What packaging should I send to Sandisk? ;-)
For the price I paid, I don't feel it is worth my time to spend a lot of time on the subject, as long as it starts off working - and the fact that I hear Tony Bennett right now tells me it is working.
Gotcha. Just to clarify, I'm referring to buy.com directly as opposed to buy.com marketplace sellers. Buy.com itself is just as reputable as amazon.com - and I confirmed them to be an approved Sandisk dealer before buying.
If you're happy with your product, that's fine. I just know people buy Sandisk products for the quality brand and reliability - as well as their warranty. IF your card turned out to be fake, then you might be surprised when sending the card back to Sandisk - as well as having to pay shipping both ways. If you wanted to spend the time to read the accounts, many of these fake cards work for months before finally failing.
These are all reasons I said I'd rather have a genuine cheap brand, than risk a bootleg Sandisk. It's up to everyone to make an informed decision, I just wanted to make sure no one on this forum got hurt for being uninformed.
