    hmmmm

    Think I may be concerned about the description

    " Brand new micro SD cards however when these cards have been tested they vary in 'good' capacity 3.8GB UP TO 32GB. Please therefore be aware that these cards may develop potential read/ write errors particularly above 3.8GB but they may also be repairable with the right formatting & flashing tools. Please also be aware that whilst these cards are ‘new’ and have been shipped to me straight from the factory they are sold as being faulty/upgraded and the capacity and speed may vary for each card hence the very low price approximately 1/3 of what you should expect to pay for brand new fault free perfect condition products. "

    you may only get realistically a 4Gb card :Eeek:

    Our very knowledgable grommet warned about SD card capacity on here a few weeks ago, a warning that I heeded:Eeek:

    I did not see the warning on this sellers listing - however other sellers have seemingly identical cards with no warning. Appreciate the comments - think the warning probably applies to all at this price.

    Usually anything that "Seems too good to be true" probably is.

    I notice these cards are class 4.
    My in car camera specifies class 6 and above.
    just a note in case it helps anyone.

    Class 4 is very slow. Would take an age to store a picture, no good for video. I always use 10

    My 64 gig micro sd card for my GN2 just arrived via Amazon.

    It is class 10 which I understand means you write data to and receive from faster than lower class cards.

    Sixty Four gigs! I can't believe such a tiny card can hold so much stuff. (Currently got 40 albums on board and it has hardly scratched the surface.)

    £49 to the door here in Portugal.
