Where to buy original memory cards with warranty?

Guys
I am after 64GB SDHC or SDXC original memory card. These cards can become faulty so ideally I would like to buy one with 12 months warranty.

Does anybody know UK based decent company who sells original memory cards?

Thanks.

Have a look on ebuyer.co.uk - they usually have a wide range of stuff, ranging from own-brand to Branded kit. They are often (but not always) the cheapest.

Always go for the lowest cost delivery, as it quotes delivery "within" 5 days, but is often 2 days, whereas in the past their "next day" service has been unreliable (for me anyway)

I would highly recommend Kingston or SanDisk (I've worked for both). An Amazon (no-brand) does not sound like a good idea.

Thanks. I was looking at those two brands and specifically on Amazon.

But then I read this;


Sandisk have verified that the 32g card I bought from eBADA on Amazon Marketplace is a fake. I was suspicious when the activation code for the downloadable recovery software included with the card was rejected. Turned out the code had already been used by someone in Japan. I told eBADA who protested that they only sell genuine cards. However, the next day, they credited my account with a full refund. I was grateful for that at least. I then photographed both sides of the card and its packaging and sent the images to Sandisk customer support. The next day they told me it was a counterfeit. The card did appear to work OK, but as I understand it, fake cards sometimes fail without warning after months of use, or they are slower than they should be, or do not have the advertised capacity (they can be programed to show false info about themselves!). After this experience, I bought a replacement card from Amazon themselves - ie not the marketplace, but sold and delivered by Amazon. Sandisk advised me only to buy from their authorised resellers, and Amazon is on their list. So will this one also turn out to be a fake? It's unsettling. I now have three of these cards, bought from different sellers, and comparing them, there are tiny differences with typefaces, labelling etc in all three. So far, all I can say is that I was able to download and activate the recovery software using the code that came with this card. To be on the safe side, I guess I really should send photos of it to Sandisk as well. But do I want this thing to take over my entire life? That way madness lies!

And few reviews on Kingston revealed the same.

For some reason fake cards are being sold by Amazon and hence I started this thread.

I bought two different cards from ebay and both turned out to be fake.

Lots of fake ones out there, what i do is read reviews, I tend to buy scan disc ones, always been good for me, I use amazon based upon reviews. I think these days of fake everything there is always a risk, I guess really you have 1 of 2 choices, brand on-line cheaper and element of risk, brand in shop pay extra yet somewhere you can walk back into and return.
The difference in price was 50% for me, was a no brainier and to me worth the risk.
Funny just thought, just had an issue with some festoon bulbs on ebay, they are crap, emailed seller and told them and all that and now bought different ones that are better, still cheaper than high street yet false economy in my case. Mind you i am giving the seller stick as they are bloody awful lol
