      is it easy to cancel from Amazon?? eBay is very hard to cancel the order.

        With Amazon I found out this week that cancelling your order is the quickest way to get it shipped. 3 from 3 failed cancellations that shipped up to 24 hours later. One of which I cancelled within minutes of ordering, 6 hours later shipped notification.
        Customer service no help, the Amazon machine is too automated / efficient.

          It is a selling strategy. Amazon is aware that the majority of customers will not go into the extra effort of returning the item once it's been received, so amazon will still ship your item regardless if you canceled the minute after buying.

          •  

            @shegeloaf: Absolutely. And returns also incur a fee which will put off most customers.

              @cook99: I've never been charged a return fee?

              •  

                @Davbar24: If it's just a change of mind return, they charge for the return postage. If you select a problem with the item (late delivery, box damaged etc.) then it's free. You must have always done the latter.

              I once bought a combination lock from Amazon US for $11.40 plus $7.53 shipping from the US. When it arrived it was faulty. I went through the returns process online which said to mail it back to them and send them the postage receipt and they'll reimburse me up to $32.

              I did that and got on the chat to send them the auspost receipt for $18 or thereabouts. The person on chat said I could have chatted with them instead of filling the online form and they would have given me a full refund without having to return the lock. He then processed the return giving me the full $32 postage. That means Amazon paid me $14 to return an $11 lock.

              You don't become the world's richest man by having policies and processes that help your customers…

              That's right, you don't. You become the world's richest man by… having policies and processes that help your customers. That's why he's the world's richest man, and also why Amazon received the highest satisfaction score for online purchases (87.7) and returns online (87.7).

              If you piss off your customers they'll shop elsewhere. If they shop elsewhere, you won't become the richest man in the world.

              •  

                @eug: Well played. I've had similar in the past but once you've enjoyed a few freebies they cut that off, presume account gets marked.

                I've had damaged goods fully refunded and for to keep the goods twice (not that I wanted them, I just wanted to return).

                I've had a full refund when enquiring on status of an order not delivered by expected date.

                Now customer service is extremely standoffish and unhelpful.

        I bought the sandisk 256gb micro sd just before midnight last night and successfully cancelled the order about 10mins ago. Mine was marked to arrive on Saturday though so that probably makes a difference

        •  

          Actually you don't really have to cancel. I online chat Amazon and told them it's cheaper now they just credited me the difference.

          •  

            @Poor Ass: The sandisk micro sd card was a couple of bucks cheaper but I cancelled because the samsung evo select seems to be faster

    It's interesting the true cost of nand flash. I can just imagine it costs Apple an extra $5 to increase storage on the iPhone from 64GB to 128GB and charge customers a couple of hundred for it.

    Apple, the masters of commerce.

      iPhone 11 64gb is $999
      iPhone 11 128gb is $1,079
      Difference - $80

      iPhone 12 64gb is $1,199
      iPhone 12 128gb is $1,279

      Weird, it's like there's a pattern and it's nothing like what you "imagine"

        You've got your head up your bum a bit.
        Prices for the iPhone 12 from the Apple website
        64GB A$1,349.00
        128GB A$1,429.00
        256GB A$1,599.00

        Difference from the 64gb to 256gb is $250.
        It's not just apple overcharging but most manufacturers. They've just lead the way. No surprise they were the first $1 and $2 trillion dollar company.

        You can get 1tb m.2 ssd's for less than $120. Hell I even got my 256gb oppo phone for $600 total.

        iPhone 12:

        64 - $1349
        128 - $1429 (+$80)
        256 - $1599 (+170)

        Samsung S21:

        64 - N/A
        128 - $1249
        256 - $1349 (+$100)

        Apple's jump from 128 to 256 is $170 vs Samsung's $100. I don't think these numbers reflect the actual cost of the components. My guess is they are using the memory capacity to stratify their customers and target the rich ones who aren't worried about a little gouging.

      Isn't the NAND flash used in phones more expensive than consumer memory cards though? Cards wouldn't last as long if they were subject to the same use as a phone's memory.

      •  

        I think that's true but consumers are still getting shafted. Microsd cards work fine for bulk media storage and they should be on phones. It's just an avenue for mobile device manufacturers to profit from.

          Can't argue with that.

      •  

        Isn't the NAND flash used in phones more expensive than consumer memory cards though?

        Yup, built-in storage is much, much faster than micro SD cards so one can't compare the pricing like that. UFS3.1 storage is a lot quicker than U3 storage.

        The option of being able to use a micro sd card to add storage for large media files would be nice, although it's a much smaller problem now that phones come with 128 and 256GB storage. It was far more important when phones came with a paltry 32GB.

  •  

    Is it cheapest ever?

  •  

    Is this TLC or QLC based, which Gen of 3D NAND?

  •  

    crap just bought the 128gb sandisk extreme card yesterday

    •  

      I got the sandisk extreme 256gb yesterday (hopefully for $43 if cashback goes through) after a quick research it seems the Sandisk Extreme might be a better buy if its not too much $$ more. Originally was gunna get Silicone Power but was scared off by others reporting dead units within 1 year and the extreme was a little bit more faster.

      •  

        Nice deal! Where was that one? Sandisk would be my preference, but just grabbed this Samsung one as I hadn't seen any good prices for a 256gb Sandisk Extreme.

          yeah, should be fine. I use this in my Gopro's (6 black and 8 black) to shoot 2.7k videos, so far no issues. So taking regular photographs should not be a problem.
          This is my experience as an amateur photographer/videographer though.

    •  

      And good for cameras

      Which camera ? If you camera supports UHS-II then perhaps get a UHS-II card ? If its UHS-I then these are good.

    For an extra $5 you can get a better one at Umart, every day.
    https://www.umart.com.au/Silicon-Power-Superior-PRO-4K-HD-25...

    The difference is this benchmarks at about 2,500/850 R/W IOPS. Samsung select I think is about 1,550/750

    •  

      The extra for delivery dilutes the value a lot though. For most photo/video stuff IOPS wouldn't matter much either, just sequential write (and read).

      Hopefully they didn't switch components after initial reviews.

  •  

    One of the reviews say it's Fake?

    •  

      Samsung Select is essentially their Evo Plus line rebranded and sold as Amazon exclusive.

    •  

      I think your chances of getting a fake would be reasonably low as this is an Amazon exclusive line. I assume Amazon would be sourcing these directly from Samsung if no one else sells these cards.

  •  

    There's also a deal on the 512GB if you want the extra capacity for $91.63

    https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B0887CHVFF

    These both ship from the US though so factor that in if you need the card sooner.
