    Hello guys.

    I have ordered a new SanDisk Micro SD card for my Blackberry, from Amazon Marketplace and this is exactly what I got from the postman in an envelope today. Just the card and the plastic box, shown in photo below. No package, no documents. Can this be an original SanDisk or I have just been ripped off?



    Thank you.

    It is SanDisk. It is what is called Bulk Pack. They are cheaper because you do not have to pay the extra for the retail packaging. If you buy 50 Micro SD's in retail packaging it is much more costly than just 50 in an envelope. Then the seller finds their own packaging to offer the item in.

    Looks real, it just appears to be bulks packaging, as opposed to individual retail you may be used to.

    This is ONLY my opinion.
    1. I never buy a bulk packaged card, only buy if it's in the original bubble pack.
    Too easy for a dealer (ebay) to buy a quantity of Chinese Knockoffs.
    2. Since it was from Amazon, it's most likely real.
    3. Never buy from a retaler in China

    Exactly. It does not matter where it's from as the actual chips inside are not from the manufacturer you think they are. That's the dirty little secret about these cards, it says Kingston or whatever on the outside but they never use their own memory chips in their own products. They use much cheaper ones from other manufacturers.
