Default Is this micro sd card fake??

So I found a samsung 64gb micro sdhc card Class 10 on ebay for $38.99, it seems legit, seller has 100% good feedback and sd card is in package unopened. just wondering what everyone else thinks?

SD cards can go anywhere from $40 to $100+ depending on class and maker. Have you checked the reviews for the product?

It was a real live picture, and I looked at the feedback and theres a lot of people saying the cards are legit. Do 64gb cards normally come as sdhc? I noticed a lot of them say sdxc. Im just nervous about buying microsd cards from ebay since Ive been burned by fake ones in the past lol.

Yeah I think around 16 or 32gb it becomes sdhc the hc stands for high capacity so whatever they set the cutoff at is where they label it as sdhc.

Most devices I have seen will not accept more than 32gb cards so you may want to read up and make sure the device will even read it.

If the card is a class 10 this is cheap and I would try to get one. Class 10 is pretty much the top as far as I know. Most cards sold that advertise as high speed for photography and video are class 10s. Some of those also advertise as water and shock proof etc but nand memory is pretty resistant to that on it's own.

You can compare similar cards on newegg.com or amazon for a price check etc.

I hope that helps a little.

Good luck! Most likely everything going to be OK and card is legit. Just a word of caution. When you are dealing with ebay and someone selling something "brand name" in volumes at the price that is too good to be true - be careful. One thing is someone selling one used item, but those selling in volumes might or might not be legit.

I came across a lot of HK made products where you can't tell fake apart. Example, Otterbox Defender case for Note 2; I had both original $60 from Verizon and $10 from HK - carbon copy down to packaging, instructions, and quality of material.
