micro sd card ridiculously cheap ebay
« on: Sun 27 May 07:49 2018 »
I was chasing a large 256gb capacity card for my new Samsung 9 plus. Prices at Harvey Norman at around $190. Ebay prices looked better at $125 to $160 for the cheapest cards. Then I came across and bought this_. I thought I might have got scammed, $27 for a 256 Samsung evo micro sd card. Well, I thought its only $26.95 if I get ripped off. Well It arrived a week early from China, I was sure it would be faulty or fake. In she went- Awesome!!! works great full capacity on the card. ;D ;D ;D.
Now, on giving feedback to Ebay I noticed another person say its a scam, and his card doesn't work. All I can say is mine does, at a ridiculously cheap price.

Some of those cheap cards run a small program that reports a larger size card than it really is. I've seen cards marked as 256gb that only hold 8gb of files. Might not be the case but check anyway.

Thanks for the headsup nugget. My pc says my card is 250 gig of which I have used up only 26gb so far.
