How To Test Your Memory Cards For Fakes
With all the H7B freezing issues being reported, I can’t help but wonder if some folks may have purchased fake memory cards by accident. I read in a recent article, that a Sandisk technician suspects that up to 1/3 of all Sandisk cards sold online are counterfeit.
I ALWAYS purchase my memory cards from a reputable online retailer such as B&H Photo or “sold & shipped by Amazon”. Once I receive the new cards I inspect the packaging for authenticity and then test each card with BlackMagicDesign Disk Speed Test (Free For Mac). For PC users I recommend H2Testw.
Remember, if the price is too good to be true….it is probably a fake memory card.
