Samsung 32GB Class 10 Micro SDHC Card Essential Class Card - NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE
on 13 August 2013
I have just reported the failure of this supposedly genuine SAMSUNG card to Amazon and the Seller. After installing it in my wife's Galaxy SIII (previous card generic 16GB works perfectly, but is too small for our music - and NO, the SIII is perfectly capable of handling a 64GB card, unlike the accusation by one seller in the one-star comments for this product), where the phone suddenly became unreliable, I have spent the last five days continually reformatting and then trying to copy 14GB of music to the supposedly genuine and new Samsung 32GB MicroSDHC card without success. At lest it arrived in a very real-looking SAMSUNG package, with very real-looking printing on the microSD card and the SD adaptor) I eventually resorted to transferring my albums one at a time, and amazingly, at around 7.5GB of transferred data, the card threw its toys out of the pram, and - SEVERAL TIMES, not just once - did one of two things: 1, it accepted transfers, corrupting them, and not logging the extra DATA to the Total on the card after it gets to about 7.2GB, or 2, it accepted the transfers, corrupting them, and logging the data content on the card as being about 108GB - not possible, of course..!!
Another point... When I initially started transferring my music to the card, the transfer rate was nowhere near to Class 10. MAX was about 4MB/sec, and (now that I have realised it) around 7-8GB of transfer it slowed down to between 1 and 2.5MB/sec.
The card, and the packaging, look the REAL McCoy, but having read, among others, thePCguy's review dated 12 NOV 2012, and realising that the card only started to "misbehave" around 8GB of on-board data, I am strongly convinced, this is not a faulty card.
IT IS A FAKE...!! Shame on you, Amazon and "electronix123"... What a waste of FIVE DAYS...!!!
