Ahhh, the first time THIS WEEK I've seen this posted at this price!!

I want a 16gb one, but play are really bad at keeping to their delivery estimates... won't probably get this for 1-2 months.. if at all...

1-2 months if not at all?................... nothing has ever taken more than a week for me, usually get stuff in 3 days.

well the way i see it, why not order at this price, if it comes quickly great, if it takes a long time and a better deal come up in between, then cancel and take the better deal, but if no other deal comes up, you still going to get this!

Have you ever ordered an item that was "awaiting stock" before? Mine has been in my basket since the previous HDUK offer.
I'm willing to wait, but obviously normal in stock rules do not apply

it doesn't say awaiting stock, just delivery time is 1-2weeks

Is says delivery time is 1-2weeks on the product page, yes. But click "buy" and "checkout" and awaiting stock is the current status.

play.com have an annoying habit of displaying items as in stock when they really aren't.

If it is genuinely in stock and ships quickly, then its a really good deal for a card that performs superbly judging by reviews.

But if its not in stock, takes weeks to get in and then longer to ship, there is no point buying now. Other deals will come along soon, they always do. Not worth the hassle. Unless you are prepared to wait.

Awaiting stock

How long is the wait likely to be? Could it be months?

These are now in stock again. Get em while you can.

cheers for that just orded 2

Ordered one - thanks.

Anyone know how to copy a FAT32 and EXT4 partition off my existing card and recreate it on the new one?

Nice, just ordered thanks.

Ordered yesterday, got dispatch email today.

Was thinking the same ! X)
Agree also with the person who said you may not get it for a couple of months. Its why I didn' order one months ago

You are not just very lucky, but...do you mind giving me the racing results for the next month ?
Yes, THAT lucky.

One method is to download a GParted Live CD

I posted this deal a couple of days ago as did another HUKDer, both deals have vanished! My 16Gb Lexar was dispatched today, stock has been available.

Yup, did that to partition this card in the first place. Can it image the existing partitions? I didn't think it could.

One way is with some flavour of linux. Both partitions mount, and you can copy the contents. The other way is to do a Nandroid backup (via your recovery), and then just partition this one, copy the FAT32 back over, and then restore the nandroid backup. This will restore the EXT4 partition too...

That's how I did it anyway!

Thanks - I did wonder if doing a Nandroid would work as it backups the EXT partition. Just need to clear space on the card first so the backup will work.

I don't have a card reader - do you know if you read the card without the phone booting up (from the boot menu or recovery?) - The phone will moan a bit booting up without the correct SD card in place due to all the apps that are on the SD card.

Got the dispatched email today

Isn't the class 10 better for £1 more?

That one isn't Micro SDHC. Good luck fitting it in a modern smartphone

Yeah, but if it was Micro SDHC it'd be better.....

Makes no difference. I think Play either lie about despatch or ask Royal Mail to deliver it via the longest possible route. I ordered 2 items last Saturday, one from Play, one from Ebuyer. Got despatch emails on sunday. Ebuyers arrived monday, plays on Thursday. Make of that what you will.

To be fair though, Ebuyer are based in the Yorkshire whereas Play are based in Jersey so i would expect a delay.

Just ordered one - Greeat Price !!! Thanks !! Heat added !

AAAH Awaiting stock - oh well - will be worth the wait, at that price.

Ordered mine at the beginning of the month, Still waiting.
Have always used play and liked them BUT their delivery times are a joke.

Here is a micro SD class 10 - from Play

I appreciate it does take longer for stuff to arrive from Play since they're based off shore.

I meant it's dispatched which means I'm definitely getting it rather than waiting in limbo with a order status of 'Awaiting stock - estimated 1-2 weeks' which some users have experienced and said can last for months.

Got mine delivered today. Did a test with H2testw v1.4 and got:

Warning: Only 15262 of 15263 MByte tested.
Test finished without errors.
You can now delete the test files *.h2w or verify them again.
Writing speed: 9.22 MByte/s
Reading speed: 17.0 MByte/s

Well over Class 6 and just under Class 10 Write speed, and about Class 16 Read speed. Not bad.
