I bought a 64GB micro SD Card, with an adapter for $10.44. It came with free shipping. Is that a good price? What would average be for a 64GB micro SD Card?

Where did you find it? Got a link?
At that price it sounds like it could be a fake (lower capacity than reported) or just a cheap OEM/noname card which can corrupt and cause you headaches plus is most likely very slow.

If it is a genuine branded card, that's an unbelievable price, but it's too good to be true.

Its most likely a fake card
They take 8GB cards and reflash it so it reports a higher storage limit then it actually has

$30-40 is the normal price for reputable brands
$20-30 for less reputable brands

^Problem is, there are times when sellers inflate their ratings by getting fake customers and other hanky panky stuff. Try verifying the actual size using h2testw.

If it does turn out alright, then you snagged yourself one heck of a great deal.

Yeah, from what you guyz said, I'm assuming it's fake. I already paid for it, so when it comes, how can I tell if it actually is 64GB without pasting a huge ass file into it?

Like I mentioned above, download h2testw and run as per instruction. It will probably take a while so go do something else.

If it does turn out to be fake, try opening a Paypal claim or something.

98.8% positive feedback, pictures showing it saying 64GB, positive comments, etc..

1)Look at the quality of the card its really bad and has no brand.
2)the seller has large amounts of negative feedback .
3)positive feedback is probably fake or people who cant tell the difference between real and fake.
4)The card is coming from hong kong fake city.
5)The price is lower than a new official 16 gb card http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00M55C0LK/ref=twister_B00MW5Y0IO?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

$10 for a 64gb card LOL. People are so gullible.

I got a 4 dollar Ferrari sitting in my garage.

This is it, I think. The seller has 98.8% positive feedback...

Unbranded, steer away from it.

I got an unbranded 16GB card back when they were all "it" for £12 (was too good to be true at the time)
Got it, found out it would just play up and not write any data to it. :/

In the case of SD cards, just stick to brand names. You can't go wrong.
