Default MicroSd Cards In Bulk Packaging

Has anybody bought a microsd card from amazon or ebay in bulk packaging. If you have, has it been a quality product? I know that most headphones sold in bulk packaging are fake. I'm hoping the same does not apply to memory cards.

I'd be very wary of buying memory sticks off of eBay. Fraud and piracy abound there. The likelihood of getting a fake stick is very high, I understand...

I haven't bought any stick from eBay, but I know plenty who have. A large number of them got counterfeits. You're better off going with a store that has a reputation to uphold than some random guy on eBay, even if his stuff is a lot cheaper. If the deal seems too good to be true, it probably is.

I got an 8 GB one from Amazon (actually came from ChiTek Corp) and works fine for me. Also came with an adaptor.

I think mine was in the $20 range plus shipping. It was a Sandisk card.

i got a fake...it WORKS...but built quality was horrible. i could easily pry the two pieces apart with my hand and see the insides...
but hey, if your buying in bulk, if one breaks, you can always switch for another one
