First use dead
on 16 May 2013
I have never had a card that died on me in first 6 month. This one bits all "expectations" , dead after very first use. All pictures taken are lost. I have only used up about 3 Gb of space.
Card is impossible to run through any restore software or even format. I have tried all typed of photo cameras to format, PC will freeze when card is inserted, Mac will not recognize.
SanDisk response: send the card back to Check Republic for a replacement. Postage £7, value of the card £10. Why bother? Note: postage will not be covered by SanDisk, only postage to the customer if they decide they should replace your card.
I have bought 2 same cards at the same time and do not want to risk the pictures i take. So will test second card carefully and update the review at later date. I am at the moment on my second Gb, card still alive.
I own 20+ memory cards mainly SD and CF, only ever had problems once with fake SanDisk CF card 4Gb. Since it was fake (i only found out when tryed to claim replacement from SanDisk) i was still prepared to pay SanDisk premium. Not any more... Will stick to Samsung until it fails.
I am sure every brand - card could be faulty, but there is always this fist time that destroys your confidence.
My other SanDisk cards are OK, different models. But this particular model (not the whole brand) is 1 star.
