Lexar and Sandisk do sell one terabyte SD cards. The problem with your scam card was, it was loaded with an old ram quadrupling software, lol. That was the reason for the slow transfer rates.:-)

You can get a refund from ebay, the bonus is, you still keep the cards. I got a full refund from Amazon for TWO fake video card and still have the cards... though they are pretty much useless. They are both GTS420s with their bios altered to report GTX970s.

Well you can get free flash drives and sd cards from china (ebay, aliexpress, ect.). When you get it, just test with software > take a picture of results > ask for money back > boom > you have free low capacity card/flash I wouldn't risk getting data corrupted.

I think the reason the Chinese can’t knock off the brand name 100% is because it is illegal to do a complete 100% copy. But they can get away with being 99% exact. That’s what I’ve heard at least

Okay, nobody will really search up the barcode but just how is a "1024 GB" SD card SDHC? If they were making a scam product that looks legit to some extent and that is supposed to make people think it's real, couldn't they have put just a little bit more work and put SDXC instead of SDHC on their *"1TB SD CARD"* ?

The problem is that the definition of a megabyte/gigabyte isn’t really the same between computers and storage manufactures. A computer says a kilobyte is 1024 bytes and a megabyte is 1024 kilobytes. So one megabyte (one million bytes) is actually 1,048,576 bytes. To get to 32 gigabytes you have to multiply 1024 (bytes) x 1024 (kilobytes) x 1024 (megabytes) x 32 (gigabytes) which gives you 34,359,738,268 bytes of information. However, computer hard drive and storage makers had the clever idea that a gigabyte is defined as a “billion” bytes, so why do they need to give you extra bytes you didn’t pay for just because someone who made the PC decided 1024 bytes are in a kilobyte? So industry practice is to label things in even numbers, even though computers will see less space as measured in GB. You do get 32,000,000,000 bytes when you buy 32GB, but your PC isn’t counting the same way everyone else would!

You should tape the mic to the chest. If Linus has a hairy chest, you could either; a) use a vampire clip, run it from the back and over the shoulder and attach the clip to the seam of the neck line. It contours nicely. Or b) use a rubber mount for your mic and Topstick to the seam of the neck line. If you're using Sanken Cos 11 mics (if you don't, YOU SHOULD!) I recommend LMC Sound products.

Doogee did similar scam with their F5 phone - I (stupidly) preordered it and it supposed to have 16 GB storage (and 3GB RAM) and it did show that it has 16 GB, but when I got near 8 GB overall used (let's say about 7 GB) space (including Android system files) suddenly it showed that I have 15 GB used - even when before loading a single 1 GB file it had only 6 GB used (numbers are not exact - it is the general idea from quite long ago). Never gonna preorder anything again. And never gonna buy anything from Doogee again (even if it still was quite decent phone for the price I paid). I just saw the specs on paper and was sold, while in the end they only half delivered (for other instance they cut the battery from firstly promised 3300 mAh, downsized before launch to 3000 mAh, which in reality turned out to be 2450 mAh).
