| p.1 #1 · New Memory Mall = Counterfeit! |
Just wanted to let everyone know that I ordered from New Memory Mall and (possibly predictably) received a counterfeit Sandisk 16GB 60MB/s Compact Flash card. Here's a photo of what I got- https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/U7ZYu9sv4OOz7aZlh3VAp9MTjNZETYmyPJy0liipFm0?feat=directlink
Notice the sharp corners of the sticker at the top, and the silver border having the extra thick part at the top. I've read these are markers for counterfeits. All other counterfeit markers that I read about matched my card.
However, the card says it will hold 14.9GB, and the camera says I can take 23 raw pictures at 8fps. At ~22mb/file, that means it'll store 506mb (23files x 22mb/file) of data before it needs to catch up. So it's right at 60mb/s (506mb/8fps).
So should I send it back? Are there any advantages to using a counterfeit card? Thanks!
