    Hi all,

    I bought a job lot of photographic stuff from Ebay and amongst it was a mass of memory cards. Having given some away as xmas pressies I have decided to sell the following.

    12 8gb Sandisk Ultra II SDHC cards
    4 2gb Sandisk Ultra II SDHC cards
    2 Sandisk Cruzer Micro 8gb USB flash drives.

    Tallying this lot up by current average prices (Jessops.com – cheaper than Amazon for cards at the moment!) it comes to a whopping £400 approx. These are genuine cards and not fakes. They are all brand new and sealed in their packaging. I would like £160 posted for the lot or they can be bought individually however I would much rather these go in one lot.

    £14 posted for the 8gb cards each or £60 for 5.
    £5 posted for the 2gb cards each or £18 for 4.
    £10 posted each for the 8gb flash drives each or £16 for the 2.

    These prices are to match or better Ebay prices regardless of the fact that almost all the cards on Ebay are probably fakes!

    Pictures are available, just ask. No swaps and there isnt really anything I am interested in (unless you are selling a Canon Speedlite 430EX II and wanting a swap!)

    You bought off Ebay and say the cards are genuine, yet you say that all cards on Ebay are probably fakes. 😕

    Too expensive…….

    I bought 2 x 2Gb cards from Aldi 2 weeks ago for about £4.70.
    Im sure they’ll still have them left.

    I’d agree with epo-aholic, your post is not helpful John. You get what you pay for, the Sandisk cards will be far better in terms of data transfer than the aldi cards (yes I have both)

    “not all memory cards are the same though!”

    They mostly are. Most are made in the same factories, and badged up as other brands. Hence, the Jessops own brand ones, and the far more expensive Sandisk ones. Same thing, under the labeling. The only difference is speed. The faster ones cost more.

    The Aldi ones are probably just slower cards, or maybe older chips. As ‘speeds’ increase, the price of older, slower stuff comes down. Also, the cheaper cards could be of a lower grade. Some more ‘disposable’ devices don’t need particularly high-grade chips.

    As for ‘fakes’; the manufacturing process for such things is very expensive, so setting up an entire factory to manufacture counterfeit memory cards would hardly seem worth it.

    The ‘expensive branded ones are better’ is a myth perpetuated by companies like Sandisk, to persuade you to spend more money.

    The ones above seem very good vfm, considering their original shop prices.

    wrong. I bought one. Looked like a Sandisk Extreme IV but speed was about 50x (ie dog slow) no way it could keep up with my Nikon D200. There is a section on Ebay about fake memory cards with pictures to show you how to spot them. They’ll be slow chips packaged up to mimic fast ones.

    Sorry, you’re right, SFB. I should have said that, actually. That the ‘counterfeit’ ones are merely re-badged slower or older chips. Still made in the same factories, though.

    Bit like bikes, then…
