Just ordered a couple myself.

FYI - they are closed until Thursday for Yom Kippur - so don't expect fast delivery and then post bad reviews...:-)

From Amazon reviews, these are not reliable. It's a good price, but I don't want to take a chance. I'll stick with Sandisk.

My 6 year old high priced Sandisk 8GB Extreme IV lost all but 1GB of it's flash memory so I don't use Sandisk anymore. Tried everything possible to recover 7GB. Sandisk says fake (with a hologram), Ritz their authorized dealer when purchased brand new in sealed box with hologram says Sandisk problem not theirs. I wasted way too much time.

Amazon reviews (2) one 5 star from a pro videographer, one 1 star from an amatuer shooting kids lost images in transfer to computer.

I stopped using Sandisk too when I was stuck between Sandisk telling me my card was fake and the authorized seller telling me it is not. Great product, service and support means nothing if I'm being discarded at the first sign of trouble...

It obviously takes quite a few pics to fill up a 16GB card - is there an easier way to test them?

slap it in a card reader, hook it up to your PC, and fill it up with data!

The same reason why I only buy Sandisk with the retail box from well known retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, BH Photo, or Adoroma because there are so many fake ones around.
