    I'm looking to improve my micro SD card as some games like Pokemon Black/HeartGold/Ace Attorney: AJ are running a bit slow on me. I just want to see if this is the real (probably not) and if some daring person would buy it and test it him/herself. >_>

    EDIT: How the duck did I forget to put the link? -.-

    There's not even a brand.

    I'd say don't risk it.

    Just assume that all eBay auctions selling any memory card of any kind is fake.

    With the invention of Drop Shipping, you can't even trust US sellers anymore.

    I've got one of those brand less ones (not my main one, just a spare) and it works fine.

    It looks like a wholesale microSd that's designed to have a brand printed onto the card or something.

    8GB Class 6 should cost about $20-30. I'll say it is too good to be true.

    Da hell, $50~80 for 8GB Class 6? That is the most rip off price ever seen! Go on ebay and buy one... cheapest $20... should buy between $20~25 from brand

    @RupeeClock
    My apology. I was thinking of 16GB Class 6.

    I don't trust ebay when it comes to micro SD. In fact most sellers on ebay probably are not aware what they are getting is a generic brand with brand name printed on it.

    If you are looking to order flash memory online in the US then check out Newegg or, alternatively, Amazon. Occasionally you will find deals nearly as good as the OP described if you manage to load the page on a good sale day or they decide to do a free shipping deal on a particular product.

    I just got a great 8gb class6 microsd from newegg, the "4-7 day free shipping" took 4 days, and last time i checked the card was around $17 w/the free shipping (but went out of stock). The only time you'll take an extra price hit is if you are living in a state that Newegg must charge sales tax to, but I'm not sure how the laws have changed regarding taxing internet sales recently and what state(s) it applies to. >< I know Newegg is based out of Whittier California, but ships from several locations in the US and I just don't remember the tax details, anyways, I'm out the door.
