2.0 out of 5 stars Quality Kingston product - bait-and switch tactics by Amazon, May 17, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kingston 2 GB microSD Flash Memory Card with SD and miniSD Adapters SDC/2GB-2ADP (Personal Computers)
Kingston 2 GB microSD Flash Memory Card with SD and miniSD Adapters SDC/2GB-2ADP
I'm happy with the Kingston cards themselves, but unhappy with the bait-and-switch tactics of Amazon in the way the visually present to the public what they are selling. The pictures clearly show a hard-shell case to keep all of the SD cards and adapters in (important if you have a few of these to be sure not to lose any). What I received was a simple package that just held the cards and no plastic case to store the cards and adapters in. Tried calling Amazon as soon as I received them, was told they would look into this and call/email me back but I to this date have not heard from anyone. This package that I received is definitely a cut-down version of the product, less quality than what I was made to feel I would be buying by the image presented to this day on the website. If this is the way Amazon is going to handle customer and selling their products, advertising a higher quality product and shipping a lower quality product, then they have seen the last business from me for sure!!!

How much did you pay? Right now the card (and adapters) are going for $5.99 with free shipping via Amazon Prime. For $6, I wouldn't even care about some plastic case.

Do yourself a favor and get a Pelican 1010 or 1020 with the foam kit and make your own hard case for your device(s) and SD card(s).

I agree with you. If amazon sold you a lower class piece of technology then they advertised then they should get a bad rap on this one.
