STOPPED WORKING FOR NO REASON IN LESS THAN 3 MONTHS - BECAME SUPER HOT & BURNT MY HAND INSTEAD
on August 12, 2014
I'm giving this 1 star because you cannot give zero. I bought this on May 19, 2014 - shipping was prompt because I'm an Amazon Prime customer and the packaging seemed alright. I connected it in my phone and it was reading alright until it started to heat up my phone in only 2 months of use and for no apparent reason whatsoever.
On August 2nd, it just stopped working completely and my phone gave indications that the memory card was blank. It was connected in my cell phone tray, placed on a bed all night, away from the window/sunlight, with no other electronic devices next to it and even no water or any other factors surrounding it that might create a problem if it comes in contact.
MORE IMPORTANTLY- I noticed that when it was connected my phone's memory card tray had heated up considerably so I had to remove it using tweeters and set it aside to cool. I next connected it to my laptop with the SD card adapter and the whole adapter and the slot in my laptop heated up so bad in less than a minute than I got a burn on my hand when I touched it. Obviously I removed it with the tweezers again. Tried it in some other devices belonging to my friends and the same result of heating up like crazy and not working at all.
DO NOT BUY FROM THIS SELLER. I contacted the seller MemoryWhiz for replacing this by explaining the problem clearly but so far there has been no reply, even after patiently writing three e-mails to them over 10 days. I stated that I have all both the adapter and the card itself and they can even send it back to SanDisk if it was a manufacturing error. In my experience, big companies usually like to collect such information on their products so they can look for its cause and ensure it doesn't happen in the future. Still, there has been no reply from the seller and now I'm completely exhausted of dealing with this.
Do yourself a favor and do not buy this card or anything else from this seller. It may work well at the start but there is no guarantee that it will be reliable long term. In my case, in less than 3 months, I lost all my important data that was stored on this card with no way to retrieve it while it left me with a burn mark.
I'm normally a very optimistic person who has few, if any, negative reviews to say about things in life but this one has truly disappointed me and left me very hurt..and well..literally burnt!
