Stopped working and broke within a month, but refund was prompt
on December 17, 2011
My partner uses this to take pictures in a lab. Once a day she would take pictures and then immediately empty the card onto her lab computer. She would always leave the card at the lab, so it never traveled, except the first time to the lab in its original plastic holder. It worked fine until a couple days ago, when after a camera session she could not get any computer at her lab to recognize it, it just kept saying the card needed formatting before it could be used. She brought it home and the home computers said the same thing, and after ejecting it from my computer here, I noticed the upper-left corner had a chip out of it and the two layers of plastic were separating. While I was looking at it, I moved the lock switch back and forth a couple times, and then the little yellow plastic piece that makes up the lock switch fell right out! I've never seen a card so flimsy as this, and now she has to re-do a lab experiment because we can't get at the data.
Unfortunately, because we happened to move in the past month, they can't ship us a replacement, because replacements are only shipped to the original address of the order. I know they say you can just re-order it, but I ordered it with something else that I don't need to return, and so now I don't qualify for free shipping. So I would rather have a replacement than a refund, but I have to note that the refund was promptly credited to our order.
