description in the title
its all garbage knockoff's from china
Its not fake, ive bought things from their before, its similar to AliExpress. Takes around a month or less for things to deliver, comes from CHN.
EDIT: How so do you mean fake?..
This is true. I have 2 AUX cables from there that are nicely plated with fabric covered cables.
a 256 gb micro sd for $9, seems a bit fishy to me.
That is fake, but the site itself isn't. It'll arrive when paid for, but be a fake SD card.
nice to know, my dad wanted to buy stuff from there, but I warned him against it.
Now makes sense
No it's not fake. I've bought a lot of stuff from them before. Just be careful.
so what should I be careful for exactly ? big obvious things like the card I already know about, but is there anything else ?
A WSJ piece on Wish
I have bought a lot of stuff from the website just cheap stuff and if it does not arrive the day it is supposed to, the customer service will refund it and are very friendly. Also if the product is not what it was supposed to be customer service helps out. Just takes awhile to ship.
If you go to wish.com like 90% and search "sd card" everyone of them is like 5-10$ and they usually have a capacity of 16-512. For 16gb card, 5$ is a decent price but they are selling 512gb cards for the same price and some of these fakes even have the "verified mark on them. Most over 32gb cards have sdhc logo even tho they should be sdxc. I've only been able to find a few cards with no people saying "they tested it and it was only 4gb" most cards are just a scam.
Don't get any storage media from ebay or other sites which offer then for extremely cheap prices.
As for the rest, Wish.com has some good cheap articles.
Just don't get any electronics from it.
the card is fake.
there are plenty of topics in the internet about theese fake cards
its a 2~8GB card with a tweaked controller to display 256, but if you try to write over the 8gb, either it refuses, or previous data gets overwrriten

PS: you find theese cards all over the places, not just that site
Well, it's not fake, but. The products are essentially fake, but I've bought from the sight before (I'm cheap and Christmas presents need buying)
