3.0 out of 5 stars Beware of fakes!, 20 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SanDisk SDSDQUA-032G-U46A Mobile Ultra microSDHC UHS-I Class 10 Memory Card + SD Adapter + Memory Zone Android App up to 30 MB/s read - 32 GB (Personal Computers)
I purchased two of these cards in early January - one for my wifes HTC Desire C and one for my own Galaxy S3.
Within the month, my card stopped working. The phone could not recognise the card and neither would my PC so I was unable to try reformatting it. I have returned this card to Amazon for a refund which is in process. My wifes card is still working ok.
In parallel with this return, I have been in contact with Sandisk and they have confirmed that my wifes card is not a fake as it has a serial number on the reverse which they have validated. My card (although purchased with my wifes) has no such serial numbers on it. Sandisk advise that these can become "rubbed off" but advise purchasing only from Amazon directly and not one of their resellers on their MarketPlace. They can't say conclusively, but I believe my card is fake. You can register your card with Sandisk and I would recommend you do this if you buy one of their cards to find out quickly if you've been supplied with a dud - you only have 30 days in which to return your card with Amazon so be aware!

I purchased mine from the market place seller Intelligent Memory and it was 100& Genuine as I have registered mine with SanDisk without any problem. I also tested the card with H2testw and it was full capacity. Their are honest sellers out their and I was lucky I found one.

Thank you for taking time to share the information - I wasn't aware I could register my SD card with the manufacturer.

The problem is simple.
You, daniel, don't know what you're talking about.
The reviewer never mentioned re-formatting his card, and yet you seem to think that you can claim that's what he did. What are you, psychic?
