Hey everyone. I'm an avid Hotukdeal'er. Always on the lookout for a bargain, I have used MyMemory a few times to buy the odd bit and piece, as they seem to be quite cheap.
Out of the four purhases I've made from them, two have turned out to be a real nightmare - the kind where you wish you'd spent a few more quid and got it from somewhere reputable.
The first bad experience is inexcusable: I bought a large CompactFlash card from them. I used it once, and it broke corrupting a whole days's worthof top-quality photos that I'll never be able to get back again. I've had a good few memory cards in my time from fair few places, and I've never had one corrupt on me before - and certainly not on the first use!
Secondly, I recently purchased an R4 card for my Nintendo DS. The MyMemory web site links to the place where you have to download the software to make the R4 work. Not only did the software from their website not work on the card bought from their website, after much digging around it looks like they are selling CLONED counterfit cards for about the same place more reputable sites are selling the originals for.
I'm not sure of the legality of trying to pass these cards off as R4 cards, but they certainly are not, and are certainly no where near the build quality of a real R4 (which I've now found elsewhere).
Both times, I've been told nothing more than to send the items back for a refund, or that someone would be 'looking into it' (which they never did).
Quite frankly, they are not worth the bother. Spend a couple of extra quid and go somewhere that is selling products that are at least fit for purpose. I ended up at MemoryBits.co.uk, and they have been superb.
You have been warned!! Buyer beware!
