we've all seen the auctions/'deals' on SDHC cards.Â 16GB class 6 no-name, generic for $30, etc.Â however more and more often we are seeing name brand memory being knocked off on ebay.
most memory formats have a standard and in turn a standard way of identifying the card is what it says it is (with either logos or specs).Â
today, i'll just explain how to spot a fake SDHC card, perhaps not a fake but a non-certified SDHC card (and most likely one that will prob not work as claimed either; speed / capapcity-wise).
Â the SD Card Assocation (yes, there is an association for sd cards.. hehe) states that in order forÂ a card to beÂ certified by them as a true SDHC card, it must have both an SDHC card logo and also the class speed logo ( http://www.sdcard.org/homeÂ ).
so there ya go, hope that helpsÂ yaÂ spot thatÂ knockoff sdhc card or even fake namebrand one.
