    i once bought a counterfeit memory stick duo card from ebay... in exact same sony packaging etc, even had a hologram and etc, i used it for about 3 days and i got some currupt sectors then after few more days i was only able to use about 300mb of 1gb... got mad so i opened it up, found out it had thin sanded plastic + they sanded off the serial and info on the chip also

    after that i never buy anything like media/memory from ebay

    hehe non related but i just wanted to say that to somebody

    Ebay.com.au has put up a warning on their site about the number of fake memory cards going to auction... I'd just avoid ebay for memory completely!

    They're from an online dealer, so that'll probably be a better start than eBay. Plus, the eBay feedback doesn't determine whether the goods are fake or not. I bought a 512 sandisk for a friend from an eBay seller (from China). Turns out it was so fake the access time was about 5-7 times my Kingston Japan

    If you are so worried why not just buy it off from a retail store? or better yet trustable onilne retailers like newegg seems good. On eBay no matter how positive the feedback the seller has there is always a high chance it is a fake and its impossible to tell just by looking at the pic whatever its the real deal or not until you actually tested it. Just got my TOSHIBA SD-C10G JAPAN a little while ago from my local retail store and it works great on the R4.

    I might buy from the AU store and ship to US instead of doing NewEgg because he said they're japanese. I've heard mixed results of NewEgg's cards being both Japanese and from Taiwan?(I think).

    Just order from wherever is cheapest. If you get a crappy Taiwan card, just call Kingston, and have them replace it with a proper Japan card. (See my other post)

    no probs.. i bought 8 from there, all made in japan. they have a shop, so if you're local, you can pick them up and inspect them in person (which is what i did - had to be sure they were the right ones [​IMG]).

    given that out of 8, they were all japanese, i'd say you'd have to be unlucky to get something else.. still doesn't hurt to check [​IMG]

    Just a warning: fastmemoryman sells fakes. Just google "fastmemoryman fake" and you can find all the evidence you need.
