Scams

Sd, micro sd and other digital storage devices claiming both in store (online) and digitally via computer analyzing device properties, to have more storage than they actually do. How can I test a storage device for this scam?

Let’s say for an example I have a 1 Tb sandisk micro sd card from ebay for $100. With current tech and bargains this doesn’t seem too suspicious, But how can I be sure that this card doesn’t have only ~64GB of storage and is imprinted to read as ~1000GB? Is there a code I can run? Is there a better subreddit for this question? I personally am suspicious of Walmart brand Onn sd cards as ~$30 for a 256GB card seems too good to be true.

    That does seem suspicious to me. I wouldn’t go for that.

    That’s about the same price that Samsung charges for theirs. and about 75% of Sansisk. They’re simply going to be slow. I wouldn’t use them to save video or anything. But for what you’re getting (a cheap Chinese card) that makes way more sense that 1 TB for only $100.
