Chinese packing. Legit but 1 year warranty instead of 10 year local stock
I think price matching with OW will be worth but never tried myself
They don't price match ebay or seller having online store they should have physical store around for price match cheers!!
they do match online store but not prices with coupon codes
Makes a real value difference. This should be mentioned in the description above.
While Samsung micro SD are good. I have still had some that have failed.
Makes me wonder what the Australian Consumer Law interpretation of this sort of thing would be. The problem of course is cost of the item vs the time required to make a complaint if needed.
yeah i don't think it is worth losing 9 years warranty for this price
and also chinese packaging..
Note 10+ has a micro SD slot, but you're right modern flagship phones don't have a SD slot any more. I am not sure if they ever did?
I wonder how many ozbargainers have note 10s now 😀
Did I miss a pricing error?
@Agret: Nah just went down to 1189 for a week after the iPhone launch and then 1039 for a day
That too for users with an edu email
Its a really good price for an all rounder high end phone
@kehuehue: Not sure if joking sarcastically,…or serious lol.
Can also get the Lexar High Performance 512GB for $98.95 from this deal.
Heads up that Lexar is bought by a Chinese company, not owned by Micron anymore. Not saying the quality is bad, but it's a different product with the same brand
I had one of these - literally died within 20mins of ownership while doing a write-test validation. My first ever SD card to actually outright fail. I was gobsmacked. Sent it back for a refund.
Would rather pay a couple of bucks more for a reliable brand/card that actually works!
Great for my Nintendo switch!
will this card be good for gopro 7 black?
SD cards is about the only thing ebay plus is good for. However, my subscription ran out.
Because they cost so much to post?
I'm pretty sure it's a rort for sellers to extract fees from ebay. Charge ebay $10 when even registered post is just over $6
If you need this card yor taking too many selfies…
Or you need it to store podcasts, tv shows, movies or any large size files… but what would I know. Yes too many selfies. Of course.
I recommand this one which is a lot better, faster, cheaper, A2 application performance, plus the seller is 10 times better than shity shopping square

MicroSD card buying guide:
I had both, read my reply above. Speedwise the samsung is faster (and evidently more reliable!)
Lots of negative reviews on Amazon for the lexar as well!
From Amazon Au product page, https://www.amazon.com.au/Lexar-High-Performance-microSDXC-5...
The first five 1 or 2 star reviews indicate they might have bought a fake one.
Your comments somewhere above also indicate you might have bought a fake one.
I have got a genuine one. The genuine one is real good.
Amazon Australia is full of fake and crapy products. Same as eBay Australia.
'Speedwise the samsung is faster' I wonder what's the real world test speed is?
'and evidently more reliable!' a genuine Samsung card is sure more reliable than a fake one
Nah it was real. They wanted Me to send it back to lexar for service, opted for a refund. Can only imagine my test data being actual holiday memories. Yikes!
Samsung is rated U3 which is a solid 30MB/sec - much like V30 Real world speed. For my own test, a very simple 500GB file copy to the card to validate its real capacity. The Lexar was doing around 50MB/sec solid, Samsung 60-70MB solid - The Lexar died 20mins into the test, Samsung finished. I'd say thats about as simple and real-world as it gets.
Fake cards typically error out when they reach their real capacity, not die out completely.
On another note, A2 speed rating is also very device and OS dependent, if the device you're plugging card into does not support A2, you get no benefit from it at all as per quote "A2 performance is available only the combination of A2 supported host and A2 supported card".
While both cards exceed U3/V30 - The Samsung at least in my testing tends to perform closer to V60 levels.
I did purchase the Lexar initially after reading the poor amazon reviews, I gave them benefit of the doubt (supporting the underdog) thinking it was just a bunch of grumpy people, but it looks like I was proven wrong.
I Paid $108 for the Lexar and $118 for the Samsung after discounts.
Perhaps its just a bad batch or they're still refining their silicon process, either way losing 512GB of valuable holiday memories, that would leave a very bad taste in my mouth.
@BargainKen: A2 is about IOPS not speed. It could be as slow as 10MB/s but with A2 rating.
The host needs to support command Queuing, cacheing and flash memory management. I can hardly imaging there's any modern device that not support those functions.
In short if you are shorting 4K or higher videos, go with V30 V60 V90, mostly you want really high sequence write speed.
If you are going to use the card in devices for running applications, then look for A2, what you need is random access performance, hence the IOPS requirement, and mostly doing small writes like 4KB
On paper it's good. Reliability though.. Even worse than Samsung. Lexar is not owned by micron any more it's just a cheap brand

Will this work on my samsung s9?
Anyone got one they ordered yet? Mine is still not sent yet.
Mine literally just got shipped today when I ordered it last Sunday. Pretty pathetic to take 6 business days (not including yesterday's public hol. in QLD/NSW) to ship out an order.
Well you see when I say soemthing like
'I recommand this one which is a lot better, faster, cheaper, A2 application performance, plus the seller is 10 times better than shity shopping square'
People would just neg it. ozbargain cencership.
The seller, this business, always do this, always. And by the way, they have three accounts on eBay:
Kai Seng Computers (Shopping Express, Futu_Online, Shallothead)
Except maybe people don't want a Lexar branded card? I've had 3 Lexar cards die on me in the first 2 months… swore myself off that brand long ago, for flash storage anyway.
I don't think it's censorship at all.
