There are 1TB micro SD cards out there? And they can be bought for $23?

If you're willing to put up with 100 x slower speed than typical cheap SD cards, then apparently yes.

That is part of the scam. 1) If it is slow then maybe that is why it is so cheap and 2) most users would give up on testing the whole drive. At ~1MB/sec. it would take about 3 months to fill an 8TB drive.

Another fraud
A legitimate SSD costs at least 10 times as much. I got screwed on an indmem cfe card that cost $299. This one is just another fraud. Look elsewhere. This place is good only for cheap household items. NO more electronics from this place. Evilbay is far more...

I agree with you and *admire you* for for writing "Why should even the clueless suffer from fraud?" They should not, but they always will. It's always about money and I hate it. But it will never change.

Buyer *always* beware.

And I do not trust Amazon one bit to do my shopping.

I have two 16 TB internal SADA hd's in a dock outside my upgraded iMac. The iMac upgrade is where I spent the money. It handles anything I throw at it..... so far

Now, it is just a matter of time before those SADA hd's fail. I have a $10 fan that keeps them cool when needed.

Like other folks, I am watching SSD's increase in capacity and gradually become more affordable. It is a gradual process. Maybe they must recover R/D costs. I do not know.

I am not currently biting on SSD's that are high capacity or even mid-capacity. They are not there yet.

I have two external SSD's, both 1TB ( a Sandisk and a Samsung SSD). Please notice the brand names... tried and proven. I like these two little SSD's and am very likely to buy a few more before I buy another drive with a platter in it.

Come on SSD's.

Disclaimer: I am not technically astute. So, I welcome comment(s) from anyone who knows a lot more about this subject than I do. Thanks

I needed 18650 batteries and found reviews. Sanyo Sony Panasonic and LG are the reputable brands. TRY to find them at Amazon. I could not. I spent an hour searching every way I could think of and found only off brands including the obviously fake 9000 MAH batteries. Given they refused to pull the obvious fake SSD, I have to wonder about it anymore.

I have read the horror stories about Amazon packaging, stolen returns and now shoddy merchandise I use it only for cheap household goods. I bought an Indmem 512 GB CFE card with "lifetime warranty" several months ago.There were all positive reviews. Now there are all sorts of reports of failures and now Indmem apparently does not answer warrant requests. One review say Amazon told him to just forget it. So much for customer service. Mine is working, but now I wonder how long it will last.

Delkin Black cards have a lifetime warranty and will be replaced in 48 hours, but I have not had to take them up on it. https://www.delkindevices.com/delkin-black
Their headquarters are in Poway (San Diego area) not China.

you do remember the old warning: "if it sounds too good to be true it most likely is". when dealing with certain products the name says a lot about them as in unrecognized. then of course that old "price too good to be true".

Delkin, as an example, has been here for some time in both our and the industrial market since 1986

i just contacted Lexar a few days ago about one of my old 2933x XQD cards physically failing. they now being a Longsys brand said micron, the original owner, holds the XQD licensing still and with it is responsible for the guarantee. they told me how to contact them too. i did contact them and will receive what the original cost was shortly after i supply the receipt. its currently in works. i learned to keep receipts which is the main "gotcha". they are taking responsibility.

I posted a few dsays ago about INDMEM not honoring their warranty. I posted it on Chicago Area Camera Club Assn. I got this fom a member. Now I have a $300 card that I am afraid to use.
====================================

"I do not know anything about the brand. However, I do know something about the ProGrade brand. A lot of you may already know this. If I did not

When a Chinese firm bought out Lexar several years ago (6+?), they fired the US engineers. Those engineers got together and started the ProGrade brand. All the cards are extensively tested before they are released.

This is according to Jeff Cable, photographer for the US Olympic team. He used to be a Lexar employee before the buyout. Left them to go private and also be a team photographer. So he knows the engineers that started ProGrade.

According to him, cards and readers are the only products they sell."

...Show more

the Chinese firm is called Longsys and they purchased it from Micron the US owner at the time.
https://www.longsys.com/
the rest of his story about ProGrade is pretty much accurate

if you have been using it continue to do so. they generally die on startup or format. never buy a name you are not familiar with and has no recognized US operations/distribution.

i am getting $60 back from micron for one of their XQD cards under the then Lexar brand when they owned it that physically failed. a well-used 64GB card i paid $99 back in 2016. just took a little digging and contacted the current Lexar people*. ($60 i didn't have before)

http://www.indmem-global.com/
has no established operations in the US

you can attempt to contact them via WeChat see website

Lexar /Longsys has an established office in the US. their Tech support/customer service is handled by the contract company Zendesk

they created an environment similar to a flea market platform. in doing so small vendors and newer brands have a home. that being said you can get an equal amount of good product sources as bad ones. you, as the purchaser need to do your due diligence in researching and decision making. lets face it no one twisted your arm to get what you got. the sources for all my CFexp cards are companies that are US based and back their product up. yes they cost me a bit more but i am supporting myself along with them to do the job.

oh. on the off brand stuff (chill in the language some of us know how to use harsh words in more one language and you/we don't look any cooler or smarter) some may become more well-known branded stuff along the way if they do their due diligence

Many of the products are like the junk on *B*y with distribution. However, you can find many name brands too. I try to buy elsewhere if feasible.

many products are out everywhere with distribution that are much less than what they claim to be.
