 Post subject: Fake Memory Cards

Beware. They are out there. Stick to a reputable dealer.

Consider all your holiday photos gone because you bought a fake - not worth the price even it if was free.

Play.com and Picstop have good prices on Sandisk Extreme III and have both been selling for a long time. I assume they buy genuine stock.

Transcend is also a good buy (at least in Germany). They are currently at 75EUR for the 8GB SDHC class 6 card. I use them, completely satisfied...

I've bought cards from Amazon without any problems...

(and if you click through to them from any of our Amazon links, you also help support the site!)

Good point about the fake cards though. Many people have reported fakes being sold on ebay...

Yes I got an 4GB Ultra II from Amazon through one of their market place sellers. One thing I have to remind myself is that although you may pay £50 for a really good 4GB card, when I used slides I could spend that in film on one two week holiday. That 4GB card will be used again and again.

E-bay was really where I percieve the major risk to be, but until recently I was unaware of the problem existing, hence I thought others might be as naive/trusting as me.
