On counterfeit SD cards
#13
 1) I really do not think your odds of getting a counterfeit card from EBay are any more likely than from Amazon,

    Just because you 'Like' them does not improve their odds !

2)  The camera shops may improve your odds from the start, but some may be better than others at replacing
      a counterfeit when you do find one.

3)   'Places like'   NewEgg can vary, especially in their 'Market Place' 
  >  but NewEgg is fairly good about replacing  Defective items.

  I have seen only a little Testing software,  Testing a 2TB drive could take you Days
    I have not seen any fast testing software for the really big drives.

  IF you really want a large drive you should run the test(s) as soon as possible, there are obviously more testing software
  programs for Windoze, but there are a few in Linux.
 You will have a much harder time getting it replaced/exchanged/refunded if you wait,  "I bought this last year it's no-good"  !

 >  If it "Sounds too good"  to be true,  It Most likely is a fraud...

   Use your 'Common Sense'  that will 'improve' your odds, and test ASAP ! and Deal with places that will exchange or refund
    defective merchandise.

   These days even a reputable seller may come across these drives,
           but they will be eager to keep their good name.

Common Sense is likely your best Defense.,

Expensive does not guarantee it is legit.

Cheap does not guarantee it is a fraud, but, maybe suspicious. ?

Do Not rely on short reviews such as : "Works Great" just because it 'Works' does not mean has been tested to compacity.

Flash Cards and Flash Sticks seem to be the most common, not seen as much in the other drives, but it can be others as well
