    no but i would be very careful with the one for $23 just seems a little funny that he put that average delivery is 15 to 25 days and that it might take longer than that due to customs....i have gooten things from hong kong and they took about 10 days plus he has no feedback would probably have to go with the other one if it was me.

    I wouldn't touch this deal with a 10ft poll. At best, you'll get a relabeled 1 or 2 GB card. At worst, you'll get nothing. There's so much memory card fraud on ebay that I wouldn't buy any memory item there period, regardless of the sellers rep.

    I agree. Counterfeit memory cards are very prevalent on the internet. I would do business with Amazon so there is some recourse if the product is not what you want.

    On a side note my 8gb card is barely used up with 85% free. My phone is what needs more room with only 37% free.

    That $23 one, first off, the seller has 0 feedback. Secondly, their description lists it as both a 16 and as a 32. At worst, the person is a scammer. At best, they're a dipshit.

    NEW 32GB 32G microSD micro SD SDHC - eBay (item 140407415439 end time May-17-10 12:12:01 PDT)

    Any thoughts on this one guys?

    My issue is this: I looked on Sandisks website and the picture they have of their 32gb micro sd card shows its a class 2 and the one for sale on ebay shows a class 4. I haven't been able to verify if Sandisk even makes a class 4 32gb micro sd card.

    Call me crazy, but for $25 it's almost worth the risk. The seller has quite a few positive reviews, but it looks like they have only sold low quality jewelry in the past, wonder how they made the jump to high end electronics so fast? :)

    On a sidenote, I got a 16gb Sandisk Micro sd class 2 card about 6 weeks ago off EBAY, and shipped from China and it was everything it should be. No problems formatting it, holds 15.6 gb of stuff, and had no problems with the transaction. It was only $15 bucks and I'm pretty happy with that deal.

    It's tough when you are ordering from 1/2 way around the world.

    Any thoughts?

    idk guys i buy almost everything on ebay and 4-5 months ago i bought my 16GB SD CARD on ebay for $25 so i wouldn't be surprised if that's how much you'd have to pay now for a 32GB. Not gonna try though cause my 16GB is more than enough to store things in my phone.

    I'm pretty sure 99% of you have no clue how ebay really works. If you ever get scammed on ebay, you get your money back faster than if you were to go to a store with a receipt and return it. I've made hundreds transactions there and got scammed 2 or 3 times and every time I got scammed, paypal(company you have to use to pay for things on ebay) refunded my money without any questions asked.

    So i'm never scared buying anything on ebay cause scammers always lose on it.

    here's a thought on it.. the item was removed from eBay...

    MOST SD cards on eBay or from Hong Kong ( not the manufacturer but shops in Hong Kong) are fakes. they get factory rejects and stick them in a counterfeit case.. complete with a certificate of authenticity to make it look all legit ans stuff. Sadly they're not the real deal. Stick with buying from an established electronics store located in the USA. Sandisc makes the best...Kingston makes some of the worst (even Kingston uses factory seconds from Toshiba for their chips).. you'll pay more for the SD card but you'll get a real card..

    Yeah, but don't you have a certain timeframe to report a transaction issue, 30 days? And the seller is saying it can take 15-25 days or even longer so sounds like they are trying to get people to wait out the 30 days.
