256gb Micro-sd Xc For The Low!
« on: March 26, 2016, 05:46:59 pm »
Good afternoon everyone. USA Discount Warehouse is having a huge sale on 256gb micro-sd xc memory cards for only $69 shipped! As a bonus they throw in a free 64gb micro-sd xc card sweet and a 30 day money back guarantee and a free 5 year warranty! I've already ordered one a few days ago for my Red Gpd Xd. I'm not in anyway an employee for USA Discount Warehouse or any of their sponsors. I'm just an Android gamer who wants as much space as possible for my games/videos/music ,and wanted to pass this news on to others wanting the same. link provided below.

256GB Micro SDXC cards do not exist.  200GB is as high as they go currently.

I smell a fake as well.

The card just arrived and I placed it right inside my Gpd Xd. My Xd recognized the card and is showing 250gb's of storage. And the 64gb Sd turned out to be a 128gb Sd card. I'm downloading Need for Speed using HappyChick to test it. I'll post pictures and results in a very short while.

Yes this 256gb Micro-Sd Xc card is legitimate. Here's a screenshot of it not only being recognized by my GPD XD but also of me having loaded a Psp game to it having used HappyChick.

I'm downloading a few more games and then I'll take another screenshot of the resulting storage space occupied on the 256gb micro-Sd Xc memory card while it's in my Gpd Xd. Then I'll take pictures of the card itself ,as it isn't your normal black memory card and the envelope/packaging it came in ;along with screenshots of it being recognized by my Nvidia Shield Portable. Again I do not work for nor am I promised anything by USA Discount Wherehouse or anyone associated with them. I am just a fellow gamer who wanted more storage space without having my wallet raped in the process.

@Elronza Williams Jr.

Fake uSD cards are everywhere for sale, it's one of the biggest rackets going on on the internet.  Have a look at ebay.  You will see similar cards for $10 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-256GB-Micro-SD-Card-TF-Flash-Memory-MicroSD-MicroSDHC-Class-10-Free-Adapter-/182035306559?hash=item2a6226583f:g:00QAAOSwdvpWDU9H)

Couple of tricks, you get it and it registers as the storage advertised, but when used you get no where near that. Some are actually 256 giga bits rather than giga bytes. 

There are utilities to check if a usd card is real or not.  Suggest you get one and run it.

just because it says its 256g doesnt mean it is. there are programs that can check for bad sectors. its a known thing that there are plenty of fake micro sd cards that usually come in at 4-8gb and not w/e you paid for.

Its without a doubt a fake.

The fact it says there is 248GB free should set the alarm bells ringing.

On any drive, 256GB formatted actually leaves 238GB free for usage.

Thats all besides the fact that 256GB Micro SD cards dont exist yet.  200GB is the largest they do and legit cards of that size are a hell of a lot more than what you paid for a supposed 256gb card.  You don't even need to test it, its a fake.

This card is blue and white with black lettering on the front and is black on the backside. It's a fake card. I checked online and it conforms to the MMB3D08BUACA-GE which is on the back of this card. My bad I thought I found a decent deal on storage. Here's the link I used to find-out the card is fake. Hopefully my lesson will have saved others!

Best way to prove it's real is to stuff 256GB (or really close to whatever capacity it is) worth of stuff on there.  If it is a fake, it will overwrite stuff you put on it earlier. 

Or, run one of these tools on it:

BTW -- the picture of the front of the card is so fuzzy, no one can read anything from it.
