those are fake or something. they took off the brand name (sony and sandisk)

I know and its funny because i just finished saying how i had bought 2 4gb cards for less then 200. But i didnt get ripped of they are original. And now i see this crap.

ya, its nice you started this thread. we have to warn people.

August 11th, 2006, 23:45
hopefully they look at it

August 11th, 2006, 23:59
I certainly appreciate the warning

the number 4 in the black one is obviously photoshopped

It looks as though the brand name is blued out in the blue one.

i got a ripoff 1g card a few months back...besides a few of the plastic notches between the gold contacts breaking off, works like a champ :)

i dont think they are fake.. too high of pos. feedback...

but i still wouldnt recomend trusting

August 12th, 2006, 07:57
you gotta b careful with people with high feedback cause he has 38561 good feedback 1 or 2 negatives wont pull down his percentage

August 12th, 2006, 15:43
Yeah but people don't build up a high feedback just to make it okay for them to do some bad stuff. Once you're doing well, there's no point pissing people off when you can afford not to. That's why the feedback was invented, so you can trust high-feedback members! (I'm talking generally, possibly wrong about this seller though).

I didn't know Sony made blue ones. Its obviously meant to be SanDisk, so why didn't they at least write the name on it to fool some more people?

On the subject of feedback, NEVER buy from a seller with exactly 10 positive feedback. And if you have to, check them all. If they're cheap products, like under a pound/dollar, the names are similar and the dates are within a week or so, DO NOT BUY FROM THEM!

thnks for the info PyRoUK. i'll make sure to look out ;)

I think the dude just couldn't find any nice pictures of 4 gig cards so changed the sizes in photoshop.

August 12th, 2006, 16:04
I think it's more of a legal issue. He took off the Brand name, so that he can send you a fake one :(

They aren't actually fake, it doesn't mention anywhere they are sony, just for sony psp's. But they will prob fall apart and/or stop working after a few weeks...
