    Using the authentic brands' material and machinery.........

    Only difference is they do it openly. No secret rooms where you turn the vase to open the door.

    So, in a sense, still real stuff, right?

    what lifetime warranty? Only 5 years warranty. They can verify by s/n on the card...and if no serial number usually is reject rma.

    Thus far, only Kingston/Silicon Power/ Lexar got offer Lifetime Warranty as far as i know.

Cos there is still shop warranty.
    parallel imported cards i dont think there will be any issue with it.. but fake ones!!?? how sure are you on that?

    Can i ask if anyone try shipping memory card with Tarazz/Amazon? I don't know why but seems like there is some kind of regulation that prevents me form shipping direct thru BN.com or Amazon. So got to go through 3rd party shippers like Tarazz.

    am looking at 16gb extreme pro SDHC and set to be are $110. is that worth it?

    Thanks

    It really depends if you really need the 65mb/s or 90mb/s, a 45mb/s 32 GB card (sandisk extreme) is only $69 during PC show. Good enough for photo, maybe still not good enough for video but I think it's a very fair price. $110 starts to be a little on the expensive side.

    It depends. Some factories paste their own labels on the finished products. Some mix with inferior quality material and produce it under the authentic brand name.

    So 45mb/s Extreme is enough if you don't take Video?

    I was gonna buy the 90mb/s Extreme Pro, but out of stock. But wow, double the price..
