Dangerous! Do not buy!
October 16, 2016
Do not buy this SD card! I cannot say this any more assertively. I usually am not this hard-worded, but this thing was a disaster.
1) The card I received did not match the product. I ordered a Sandisk "Extreme Plus." What I received was a Sandisk "Pixtor." See my attached picture. I don't know what a Pixtor is, but it sure isn't an Extreme Plus. Might be the same performance, I don't know.. What I do know is that it's not what I purchased.
2) This is the scariest part. I put the disk in my action camera and it wouldn't read the card. I thought maybe something was wrong with the formatting, so I set off to find the screen in the menu to format the card. I finally found it, and it couldn't see the card to be able to format it. I thought I might have the card in upside down, so I went to remove it from the camera. I took out the card, and it was so hot it burned my fingers (it was maybe in the camera for 3 minutes). I thought maybe it was the camera that was having issues, so I put the card in the SD adapter and put it in my computer, watching it more carefully. My computer couldn't read the card either, so I removed it. In the 20 seconds it was in my computer, it was already hot to the touch. Obviously the card was faulty.
So, here's the worst part. It got so hot inside the camera, it ruined the internals of my camera and destroyed it. It couldn't read any cards any longer. I worked through it with Amazon with respect to my camera, but this was really dangerous. Had I walked away, it potentially could have caused a fire.
