    Poor Quality Control -Never buy again from SanDisk

    Posted

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

    Samsung Galaxy Note II owner - card worked great out of the package without any need for formatting in my phone. Just after the 30-day return period had expired, I've started noticing the Reading SD Card icon briefly appearing when I wake my phone from sleep. Now, I'm constantly getting read errors on my phone asking me to format my card. After formatting on my computer (tried FAT32 and FAT - on my computer because it does not format on my phone with this error) and then again on my phone (to ensure a correct format), it would briefly work for about an hour and then the reading errors would recur. It's just a matter of time before complete and utter card failure. The card is a complete failure now with the constant read errors. It simply is not usable. Bought this card on sale (not much of a savings now that I have a useless chunk of plastic). Thought I'd risk it even though SanDisk's quality has been on the decline, but never again. Who would have thought that SanDisk, once a leader in flash memory, would have fallen so low. I've never had any of my Patriot cards fail as miserably as this SanDisk card. I should have suspected the poor quality control by just looking at the cheap grey and red paint job on the card. I highly recommend anyone thinking about buying this card to learn from my mistake and reconsider spending a little more to buy from a quality company.

    SanDisk

    I have always bought SanDisk memory cards and memory sticks and never had any issues/loss of data. This one also came with a bigger sleeve that fits into my laptop card reader - another thing to watch for if you don't already have one. The class 10 is what I was looking for and from what I read, this class 1 is more updated but can still be used for a class 10. I bought some cheap Dash Cams that required these. They also only take no larger than a 32GB Micro SD card. Evidently the file format changes when you go larger then a 32GB card which more expensive newer devices can use - not the older cheap ones so watch what you buy. With Video set to the highest on my Dash Cam, 32GB gives me 4 hour recording at best. Not a big deal as I set my device to loop recording and would only use it for proof of an accident or something I pass. At that point, I would drop the video to my laptop for saving before it gets wrote over. You need the highest setting to be able to read a license plate. FYI - the more expensive nicer Dash Cams do a whole lot more and record a better quality picture. These are my first Dash Cams so I wanted to experiment and get to know how to use them and understand all the settings before spending the money on a nice one.

    This is why removable storage is great

    Every tablet and phone I will ever own will include a MicroSD media slot. It is faster to move data via the SD slot from an older device to the new one. Plug it in and move on with life. No fuss, no muss. As opposed to devices that have no SD slot (only integrated memory) and require a connection to a computer or (slower) cloud storage device, which take more time to transfer and - in some cases - data corruption can occur. Just moving one expansion card is so much quicker. I bought this 64GB card on sale, which was lower than any online retailer. But even if it were not on sale, it is cheaper to spend $50~100 on this MicroSD card than it is to spend up to $200 more between phones or tablets. Many devices come with 16GB, charge $50~$100 more to get the 32GB device, and then another $100 on top of that previous charge-up for the 64GB version. Keep in mind that integrated RAM is also being used by the operating system and data it stores. So, for many practical reasons, we customers are better off with MicroSD cards that are transferable between devices. If anything, as long as one doesn't bend it or tapdance on it, it will remain viable. My only worry is cramming 64GB of space into such a small domain. Technology is incredible, but flash memory devices have limited write spans (100,000 write cycles per sector) and the space between sectors is so small that electromigration or magnetism could reduce the ability of the card to hold data. Even as a digital photographer, I know that full size SD cards can corrupt image files over time. So backups are essential, and the smaller size of MicroSD makes backing up even more important. But SanDisk is, historically, a VERY good brand. I don't expect the card I bought to fail any time soon.

    Several 16GB and 32GB cards have ALL failed

    I've long been a fan of Sandisk, and have faithfully used their compact flash memory cards in all my digital cameras, so imagine my surprise to have two 16 GB and two 32 GB cards fail in two different Samsung Galaxy SIII phones so far, taking all data with them. The cards cannot be accessed or formatted, either in the phone or on the computer. I've finally contacted Sandisk support, but after reading a lot of review on the web concerning this issue (and trying all the various workarounds posted), I'm not confident that Sandisk will be able to help me. There frankly should be NO WAY for an SD interface to make a card unusable, short of physically destroying it with overvoltage, period. I'm an embedded systems engineer (30+ years experience) and there is NO EXCUSE for Sandisk cards failing like this, unless the phone is doing something evil electrically to them. Please beware, and back up your files often, because it WILL FAIL eventually.

    Used to salvage pictures and videos from my pc

    when I found bestbuy had a sale on this product I jumped on it. fortunately I purchased two of them. I knew I wanted to use one to save my videos and pictures since I am trying to clean up my pc and also migrate the information over to an external drive. my perspective was to be able to have the files to provide to family members so they could load the items they wanted onto their phones then pass to the next family member. I don't necessarily like to have people sending a million pictures since that can impact your phone if your card isn't high enough. the card held all the pics and vids I had with room to spare. the second card I placed into my new phone which came with 16g but I figured why not just give it a go with the 32 and use the 16 for something else. I love that I can save a great deal of high capacity files/info on such a small device. its doing wonders for my spring cleaning and computer consolidation efforts (I also purchased a external hard drive to assist with these efforts). I suggest purchasing this product - when its on sale and best buy usually has a sale during the holidays/special days. don't be surprised if its on one of the deal of the day values or upcoming mothers day!

    Failed After 3 Months

    I bought this product based on the SanDisk name and reputation, and this card had enough room to store a lot of media on it. For the price I thought it was a good deal. I filled it with music and used it to store my photos. Within a few months it started giving me errors (card could not be read). It would hiccup now and then but was still functional so I still used it but transferred the pictures to my PC and started saving them to my phone. Good thing I did: a few weeks later it was dead -- not capable of being read by any device. I didn't care about losing the music; it's backed up in two places. Losing the pictures would have been catastrophic. But that's not the point. This card simply did not deliver. I've had non-brand-name microSD cards last longer than this including the one in my phone now. Never again will I buy another SanDisk product.

    WARNING!!! Do NOT install in LG Optimus Zone!

    Kenwood1

    Just bought this card last night at the Federal Way store and installed it right there in the cell phone section with an associate standing there with me. We both confirmed it was in and showing it was recognized by the phone. BUT, now this morning I went to remove it to load my mp3 songs onto it but it would not come out! The card was hitting the silver front part of the phone body! I tried prying it out with a jeweler's screwdriver but it still would not slide out! Next, I had to remove the 6 screws from the back of the phone, pry the back up a little, use one screwdriver to hold it open and a second one to pry the card out. It eventually came out... CRACKED IN HALF! I do NOT suggest you install this card in Verizon's LG Optimus Zone phone! Or if you do, make sure you load your music onto it FIRST or plan to never remove it. Otherwise, it is what it is... a MicroSD card with a nice 32GB of storage. Not much you can say about a card.

    Worked Great for 3 Months

    Tommart

    For 3 months my 32 GB micro SD card worked great in my Samsung S3 cell phone. I only stored music on it -- about 17 GBs. One day it stopped working. Would not work on another's phone or my PC. It has a lifetime warranty. BB said I need to work directly with SanDisk. I had Verizon look at it. Said the card is bad. Sent email to San Disk. Reply was within 12 hours. But they asked about ten questions. I replied to the questions including photos of the card and my receipt.. They also asked me to read about their return policy. They start out by stating it will take about 3 weeks. I bet 99% of people give up trying. The process is very detailed. Now I'm waiting for their reply and RMA number. To get a replacement I need an RMA number and mail it back to SanDisk at my expense. Already I've spent over 5 hours on this. I could buy another for $30. Today I'm going to BB and will probably buy another. Maybe someday SanDisk will send me a replacement.

    Inexpensive storage for tablet files

    I bought this SanDisk - Ultra 32GB microSDHC Class 10 Memory Card to expand the storage capacity of my Samsung Tab 2 7.0 tablet. By buying it on sale at Best Buy for under $38, the tablet's storage capacity was increased from 8 GB to 40 GB for about the same additional cost as buying a the same tablet with 16 GB capacity. This card response was so fast that I had to check to make sure that the files being added were going to the card and not to the internal memory of the tablet. The set up procedure for the tablet allowed me to direct all photos, music files, e-books, etc. to the memory card, leaving most of the 8 GB of internal memory available for files that must be on it for proper operation. This memory card is definitely a good investment. I have also had success with the SanDisk - Ultra 16GB microSDHC Class 10 Memory Cards that I use in my digital cameras.

    Great for expansion slots in devices

    Recently the price dropped down to around 29.99 for this item. 32gig has been high up until the new year and it was perfect timing for the spring semester. Granted as soon as I bought this item, I noticed it was 8$ cheaper at another location when the Best Buy employee told me they sold them for the cheapest. I purchased two for my expansion slows in my S3 phone and my Note 10.1 Tablet, bringing the total capacity up to 48gig in each device, which is excellent capacity for many documents and various types of multimedia. If you are looking for a economic alternative to the usually pricey MicroSD cards, this card is great while being very fast with speed transfer. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for that expandability without spending much money.

    Speed on this card is all over the place

    I bought one of these and one of the Samsung ones. Same class 10 and 32GB. I used Disk Utility in Ubuntu to benchmark them. The Sandisk speed was all over the place. Writing was as low as 1MB/s up to 13MB/s average being 3.9MB/s. Reading for the Sandisk was pretty steady at about 20MB/s. But the Samsung one was steady as rock at 12MB/s for writing and reading was a steady 20MB/s. So I ended up putting the Samsung one in my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. After running this test, I got curious and took my Sandisk 16GB Class 10 out of my phone and tested it. It had the same erractic heartbeat pattern as the 32GB version writing was as low as 700KB/s and averaging 1.9MB/s.

    Stopped working for Galaxy S III

    Posted
    Sarkm

    A little after Return & Exchange period expired, mini SDHC's started acting up with Galaxy S III. SDHC would occasionally disappear on phone. Phone would say "Card was removed" or "Unmount" and would randomly ask to Format cards again. Can't say it was the card. Can't say it was the phone. This happened on two different Galaxy S III phones with two different mini SDHC, even after Best Buy sale associate ensured us it was compatible. Now, wife's SDHC isn't being detected by phone or new laptop at all. Luckily, we only lost 3 weeks worth of photos & video of our babies. We removed the SDHC's and will be backing our phones up more often. Expensive lesson learned.

    I bought this during black friday and I got a huge discount using my rewards points also. I primarlly use it for my Galaxy Note 2. After 2 months, the phone says that the sd card was unexpectedly unmouted. Then my card was not recognized and blank. I could not reformat it in any way since my computer and any other devices can not recognize it. After a successfull fix, 2 days later same thing happen and now I can not get it to work at all. I do not know who to get a hold on to get this fixed. But it is a bummer since I it is a nice size and value. But it just failed horribly.

    Do NOT Buy with Galaxy S3!

    Posted
    rbgoalie

    Do NOT buy with GS3! It WILL fail on you. Sandisk has already admitted that this happens in GS3 and it will lose all of your data! Even worse, when I called Sandisk for support, they said they would not try to recover my data and told me the only way to recover it is to go through a third party which charges $275 for recovery! I'm not going to spend that much money to recover data from a $20 SD card. This card actually does the OPPOSITE of what it's supposed to do and deletes your data! Do not buy it! Also, when it starts to fail, the card repeatedly installs and uninstalls itself over the day, KILLING your battery life.

    Slow micro SDHC

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    Best Buy markets this as class 6. SanDisk markets this as class 10 / UHS 1. I transferred 7 GB of data from my old 8 GB class 6 micro SDHC to the HDD on the laptop. Then copied the 7 GB of data from HDD to the new SanDisk Ultra 32 GB SDHC class 10 / UHS1. Initial transfer speed of 200 KB/s. Eventually topping out at 3.5 MB/s. Not even class 4 speed. Not sure if I got a bad micro SD, have a slow SD controller in my Acer One 722, or selected too many files to copy at once for it to be that slow. I'm pretty sure I copied over 2 GB of data to my class 6 micro SDHC in the past topping out at 8 MB/s speed. I need the extra storage so will keep it in my phone.

    I bought this card for my Samsung Galaxy S II (T-Mobile T-989) and couldn't be happier. I've got about 15 games, 10 apps, and 200+ songs on it and barely put a dent in it. The speed is also amazing...real fast. I work in a very dusty construction type environment in Michigan, outdoors, year-round, so the durability is also a nice plus. Water resistant (submersed) for up to 72 hrs and temp range of -13 to 185. Sandisk really got it right with this one.

    A Little Less Than 32GB, But Still Good

    For $17 this was a great buy. I put this in my Galaxy S4 and had no problems. I read that other people who purchased this and put it into their Galaxies the card didn't work. I couldn't resist when I saw it was on sale for $17 so I bought it. I'll definitely update my review if the card goes corrupt several months from now (Hopefully it doesn't). The one thing that I don't like is the fact that it only gave me 29.71GB of storage. Although that is a lot of space I was hoping to get 32GB as they advertise it or some where a little closer to 32GB like 31GB or something. Those extra GB make a difference when recording video or taking a lot of pictures (Which I do a lot of). Overall I think the product it great.

    I bought 2 cards on Black Friday along with a new phone. Had it for 44 days and this morning when i first checked my phone from sitting over nite the card was no longer recognized. I tried rebooting phone and it would say card wasn't there. Brought the card to my computer and it acts like I never even put it in. I put another San Disk card in my adapter and it read it right away in my computer and my phone. I hope this is under warranty still. I told my wife to back up her card. I will give it the benefit of the doubt and just be sure to back up the card often. I can't recommend this to anyone at this time without warning...

    Worked fine for about 90 days then started showing "reading card" on start ups and suddenly NOTHING. From other reviews it appears to be a common problem with Samsung Galaxy phones. I have a S3 and Note II and the card no longer works on either. If you have the same combo and are coming up on 90 days, backup everything frequently and wait for "Sudden Death", other than that its a great value IF SanDisk PAYS YOU to use it. To be fair perhaps Samsung is part of the problem - but so far no one appears to be part of a solution.

    Works well for GoPro Silver

    I was concerned about the capability of this card, based on a friend's experience with his GoPro Black camera. We had tried several different things to get his movies to play and it seemed that his memory card was being overwhelmed. I tried this Sandisk card in my GoPro Silver, and it worked great. No problems so far. I know it's not necessarily fair to compare a 'black' GoPro to a 'silver' GoPro - not my intention to offend. Supposedly the right card works great in a 'black' model....obviously we didn't have that. I haven't tested out the capacity yet. Long story short, this card works well in a GoPro Silver
