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.
