Default 32gb SD card?

I figured that I'd use the space for songs and file transfer etc.

Anybody know where to buy it online for a good price? Tried to get a few in stores and they're all out.

Thoughts?

Eh. I bought it from Ebay. SanDisk 32GB Class 4 MicroSD SDHC paid 75 for it after shipping. It works flawlessly, just got it last night

The issue with eBay is that most of the cards don't work as they come out of country. So when they get scanned through customs they deactivate over the scan (or they were fraud to begin with).

If you look through eBay make sure it's from the US and that they have good feedback on the same item your buying. That way you can see if they're any good or not. Obviously you can always buy a dud but paypal/ebay has a pretty good resolution center in my past experiences.

Just more of an FYI, but generally for the novice eBayer, yeah stay away.

Sorry but I love people who bash ebay. I'm a heavy ebay user, mostly customer, have only sold 10+ items. After hundreds transactions i've made, i've been scammed 3 times and every single one of those times paypal got my money back with no questions asked the day after. If an item doesn't work or isn't as described, you send it back and they issue you a full refund. Almost never happens though. I've also bought many electronics from china and none of them were ever faulty. When you think about it, most of it is MADE IN CHINA anyway, so they're just saving money by shipping it from there anyway, that's why the prices are cheaper. As a matter of fact I bought my 16GB SD Card from china over a year ago and never had a problem with it. Would gladly switch to 32GB but don't really need it since I also have a 32GB ipod touch, which I had also bought on ebay.As an offtopic, I bought my computer on ebay and I also bought my car on ebay and has been serving me well.
Just read the entire description of the item and you know what to expect. I've had more problems with electronics bought from the store than the ones bought from ebay.

Here's a link for example for a nice 32 GB SD card FROM USA for those who are still soooo afraid of buying from china.
it's only $43.99 shipping included. brand new.

32GB Micro SD SDHC Card & Adaptor USA Seller Ships Fast - eBay (item 160557861599 end time Apr-10-11 10:11:40 PDT)

And please don't tell me that SanDisk is better. I've used both and haven't noticed any difference whatsoever and they both worked great. If you really want a SanDisk one though, it's on ebay too, $10 cheaper than newegg.

It's not about bashing eBay, so take a step back, please.

It's about eBay being the primary outlet for counterfeit SD cards - a LOT of Android users have been ripped off that way.

The recommendation for SanDisk is because we've yet to find counterfeit versions of those.

We're here to help Android users, not eBay - and mileage varies. AndroidForums.com is chock-full of posts from people who were burned with counterfeit SD cards from eBay and never got a dime back.

That's not bashing - those are stone-cold facts.

So - glad you found what worked for you, but around here, we like to say, let the buyer beware!
