    That's a good enough deal to try. Plus, they have a 14 day guarantee.

    Personally, I wouldn't buy an SD Card via eBay. The only stories I hear from folk who have, are bad, even when the seller has very good feedback. There probably are legitimate sellers on there, but I'd rather not take the risk.

    You still have to be careful with Amazon. Amazon lists products from its affiliated resellers as well as Amazon.

    Bought a regular 32GB SD card from Ebay and it turned out to be fake. It even showed 32GB on the computer and wrote 32GB to it. It was only a 500MB drive it just continually wrote over itself to make the computer think it was larger. I didn't find this out until I ran this test: H2testw 1.4 ? Gold
