Super cheap MicroSD 32GB Netac £4.59 from Zapals

45
Shipping from ChinaFound 18th Jul
Super low price for a 32GB MicroSD card (it's $5.99 which converts to 4.59 GBP)

Shipping is free!

The only pain is shipping takes a while but good things are worth waiting for

I ordered mine yesterday when they were just $4.99 but clearly they are getting wise to how popular the offer is and are turning it up.

Good price, if u want to spend a quid or 2 more you can get them on eBay for much quicker delivery
yes I am on HUKD - but if using this for photographs etc I would be very cautious of skimping on quality for price on memory cards like these (I have no experience of this brand in particular), because you don't want to lose family photos etc.
If you are using it for throw-away items then fine.
I have bought plenty of little items from zapals and have always been pleased (or at least amused)

I am a sucker for their "freebies" which you only pay a super-discounted shipping cost

Shipping does take ages - admittedly I tend to even forget what I ordered by the time it arrives which means it's like a surprise present from my past self

I have always received exactly the item I hoped for except for my non-licensed Darth Vader keyring which makes sword fighting noises when you press the top of his head

Super crap
I have got stuff from here and they turned out to be ok. So I can't understand the comments about it being fake as it's not pretending to be a Samsung for Kingston brand. Where has the lot on eBay are

Ironically, they're probably less likely to be fake than more well known brands such as Sandisk, Samsung, Toshiba, etc etc. many of which ebay and some Amazon sellers specialise in.
The cost of making fakes is the same no matter which brand is being copied, so why would you invest in making/faking something that was less likely to sell as it's a brand that's not well known?

You might want to do a search for Netac. They've been around for quite a while.

It's a site that's good for cheap stuff. But judging by that (which isn't always *quite* what you think it is - which is fine at under £1), I'd just not trust them with something I care about. And an SD card with photos to store is something I'd care about. These might be perfectly okay cards, I just wouldn't buy them from there (or eBay - unless it was from a trusted seller).

I didn't necessarily mean fake as in a fake brand, but fake as in storage capacity. It might be perfectly fine - I just wouldn't buy electronics from there myself. I've bought cheap tat from there, but I'd not buy something important from there.

I meant fake as in capacity, when they claim and appear to be higher capacity than they are, until photos start getting deleted...

I'm not saying they are definitely fake, but Zapals just isn't a site I'd trust to send high quality stuff. I've used them before for cheap stuff which has been fine for the price - even posted deals from them before, but I'd never consider buying tech from there.

It's just a feeling. I have nothing to back up the feeling - I just don't trust them for important stuff. And I'm clearly not the only one, as this deal has gone cold (although, I've not actually voted on the deal myself).

Personally, I'd not buy SD cards from ebay either, or most Amazon sellers, but at least with Amazon you get great customer service - it doesn't exist with Zapals.

"I meant fake as in capacity" . Genuine Netac but not capacity stated? Well that's pretty unlikely as well as it takes only a few seconds to check capacity.
You sound like you could do with one of these

Whoa, a lot of comments from yourself and thanks for the reply, just like the comments above, please refrain making remarks like “fake”until further proof has been provided. As for your feeling this would not standup in a court of law.

Just like the old saying, “innocent until proven guilty”.

Are these 32gb or "32gb"

Been caught out with enough of these from more reputable sellers to risk it. Came up as the right capacity when inserted into my computer through windows but as soon as I tried to copy data over they filled up at 4gb. One was from a seller fulfilled by Amazon luckily.

Same sort of thing as the cheap chinese graphics cards on ebay where they spoof the firmware to trick windows.


It may be innocent until proven guilty but then again I wouldn't take a walk through certain parts of town at night with my phone in one hand and wallet in the other just in case so why take a risk when you can get one quicker from a UK seller and if it is dodgy, return it.

It actually takes a long time to check the real capacity, as the fakes have the controller rigged; 1 and 2GB cards rigged to read as 32GB cards were VERY common a couple of years ago, although the fakes have mostly moved to 64GB or higher cards now, there are still more than a few fake 32GB cards out there being sold to the unwary.

h2testw.exe is your friend in these cases.

Then there are cards that fail quality control, these may have anything from a few missing GB to most of the original capacity trashed; I had a 64GB card that had 880MB usable.

THEN there are the old, recycled cards, the defective controller chip cards, the incorrectly formulated plastic packaged cards, that work for a few days, weeks, months before the cell wear shows, the dodgy controller dies, or the plastic starts falling apart.

I am not saying these cards fall into ANY of the above categories, but "caveat emptor".

what do you mean they do not send high quality stuff, they also got Samsung ssd @ £400, the more expensive the better the quality. You cannot go wrong spend more and you will feel safer

h2testw.exe probably takes longer than just writing to a card then checking what's been transferred. I used it a while back to check 7 Sandisk cards of capacities 2, 8, 16 and 32 GB. All except the 2GB came from China. All passed h2testw.exe, but more importantly, for me, was that I could fill them to within a smidgen of the rated capacity, then access what I'd transferred, showing that they worked in "real life".
I'd be more impressed with h2testw.exe if it could reveal the manufacturer. A clean test on h2testw.exe could be telling you you've got a fake that's delivering capacity. It tells you nothing about its potential reliability.

I suspect many people voting cold are naturally cautious of a brand they've probably not even heard of before. But if you think back to the days of CDs, how many people bothered to check where they were made, and just went by the name on the label.

Exactly what I'm talking about. Why risk it from a company you don't necessarily trust and with no decent customer service?

Only because a few people replied to my comments, so I responded to each.

If you want to take the risk, go for it. I was let down on the last thing I bought there and it was really cheap - but not as described, and no reply from them when I emailed. So I'd avoid buying something like this myself.

I'm clearly not alone with my thinking, judging by the cold votes.

I never said they don't send high quality stuff. I said I'd not trust them to. I've only bought really cheap stuff from them, and even that has disappointed at times, so I'd not trust them with more expensive stuff.

Unless you check every last byte of data, you DONT know it all has been safely stored; I got caught out that way by a pair of fake Samsung cards, they were randomly overwriting files, so it took a couple of weeks before I realised files were missing. h2 writes and reads every cell on the card, and gives you the read and write speeds - which is another area the fakers love to tamper with.

If you load a card with random files, be it spreadsheets, photos, film clips or whatever, then open them, you'll pretty rapidly find out if they're there or not.
In reality, there's no 100% way of knowing you've got the real thing other than having the manufacturer on the label test it for you. And that's not going to happen.

Firstly I’d like to get this cleared, I’m not criticising you and I understand that you have not had the best of experience with the company, so on that comment I would agree with you, if I was in your shoes I would like to warn other of my similar experience.

I’ve had tremendous experience with the company and can’t fault them, when one of the items I ordered (https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/mini-usb-power-current-voltage-detector-068-with-code-zapals-2929161) hadn’t arrive I contacted them via email, within 48 hours they had replied back to me and issued a full refund.

My only gripe is that you commented that this item is “bound to be fake”, you have not purchase the item and already stated this, just like my previous comment is to refrain for making comments of these sort until you have 100% proof.

If you would have stated something in the lines of “bad experience from the company hence the cold vote" I would be ok with this.

As for the “cold votes” I don’t know why, as I have not spoken to each of the individuals that has voted on this matter, just like the member qbs stated people are voting cold due to “cautious of a brand” and in that I would have to agree.

Netac have been in the industry since May 1999 and I would state they are experts in flash memory.

Saw this while browsing. Who makes these?


I’ve done some digging on this and found the following.

They have a website:-
en.eaget.com.cn/abo…1:1

Looks like they were established in 2005, headquartered in Shenzhen, China.The partners they had started with were WD/ ST/ Hitachi, and they have grown ever since.

I’ve looked at the products in their website:-

en.eaget.com.cn/pro…3:3

I could not see any sort of micro SD card being on display, they had USB Flash Disk, HDD/SSD, Power Banks and finally Type C Hubs.

Searched HUKD and found Rosegal selling the same sort of memory, link below:-

hotukdeals.com/dea…935

It got 95 degrees. User shadey12 had bought one and currently using it, you could contact him/her and find out more.

P.S user zaheer2003 bought one as well you could contact him/her as well, not sure if he/she would communicate with you because of the fiasco from the last thread XD.

Good to hear you've had a positive experience with them. I never really hear anything good, so any positive feedback for them is worth hearing, as they've not earned my trust enough for me to buy what should be quality items from them.

Perhaps I did jump to a conclusion and chose my wording badly - and you're right, I should've probably been clearer from the beginning as to why I didn't trust the listing.

I'd guess cold votes are a mixture of not knowing the brand, and not trusting Zapals too - the only Zapals deals that tend to get posted are the freebies, so that's the only exposure most people here are likely to get to them.

Not many. My dash cam files are around 1GB. It doesn't take all that long to do spot checks on them so you'll soon find out if your cards are telling you porkies.
As I said before, I'm more interested in software that can identify if I've bought a genuine card and therefore, hopefully, a more reliable card.
All h2testw does is confirms capacity. Many dodgy cards start with full capacity and rapidly shrink. A retailer has lots of wiggle room if you complain a month down the line that you're 32GB has shrunk to 2GB.

Not worth it at this price, buy one from UK for a few quid more which comes with some sort of guarantee and right of return.
