I'm so suspicious of sellers and scams on Amazon that even if that is the real SanDisk I would not believe it.

No, just forming a judgement from reading around the net.

If I want quality I'd rather pay twice the price from a local store, get a two year warranty and know who I am dealing with. No hassle.

If I want to gamble on cheap I go more directly: https://www.alibaba.com

That's likely to be counterfeit too. I bought some 64GB from Alibaba or AliExpress and they were hacked 8GB cards. The markings looked like Sandisk to a casual observer. It took me weeks to get a refund.

I always buy my SD cards from Amazon (.co.uk). Countless cards over the nears. I never ever had a problem.
Nothing bigger than 128GB though, I know larger ones are more likely to be fake.

Well, one problem. The last card I bought was supposed to be A1, it arrived marked A2.
HawianPi tested A1 to be faster currently. Not complaining though.

fwiw i had 3 x 16gb 'sandisk' sd cards via amazon-UK (the very cheapest) by the time i got round to using (months after buying) the seller was no longer trading with amazon and all 3 of the cards failed!! the cards also carried an 'authentic holographic sticker' not found on the same sandisk sd product bought from Tesco ?

Purchases from Sandisk via amazon-UK have so far proven good for me tho.
