Me too. Including my Holux GPS. But there are just some exceptions to watch out for. SDHC is one of those. We're not trashing ebay, we're warning about a very common scam which just happens to go on via ebay. It's not ebay's fault, in general.

Ebay is a service provider that provide a single access to what's sold by many. Problem is there's little control over individuals that sell things. There are companies that are unreliable but individuals can be total unknowns. I always recommend that when you make purchases on the web they should be from reputable companies that you can verify. I feel safe buying SD cards and many other computer items from Tigerdirect and Newegg. The prices are competitive and they have a long history of being in business.

bought many memory cards on ebay and about 75% have been fake. bought from uk, japan,usa even germany and been successful in about about 90% of cases getting refunded!

Stick to well known companies for memory cards forget ebay
