And are these genuine? Not everything on eBay is necessarily what it seems. Take a look at 7dayshop - Kingston 16 GB 266x for 24.99 delivered and from a reliable dealer. 8GB only 9.99 though Sandisk Ultra 8Gb at 17.99 gives a card with a better reputation.

Last place to buy CF cards, Especially Sandisk as they seem to have been faked more often than most.....Prices reflect the loony tunes goods.....Smile

I generally use " Picstop " ( care of the Shop tab above...Smile ) maybe not the cheapest, But the goods are genuine and the company has a great reputation.

Another vote for Picstop, you need to be very wary with memory cards

I'd always assumed that Kigston and Transcend cards would be always be genuine, unless from the absolute dodgiest supplier and it's the "Nike" of CF cards that get copied.

Some punters like to pay top whack because they feel they're getting top quality!

And another for Picstop, fair prices great service.
I recently bought a Duracell c/f card from 7dayshop great price and i thought that Duracell have been in the electronics market awhile should be o.k. 3 months later no read or write on this card, in camera (this card cannot be used). The card was replaced in an instant by 7dayshop but the replacement will never be trusted at a wedding, back to my trusty Sandisk's all of which have come from Picstop and some are now more than 7years old.

So does top wack get top quality? judge for yourself I did.

About 80% of my cards have come from 7dayshop - the remainder from mymemory. Almost all of my rechargeable batteries (camera and AAs) also came from 7dayshop. Personally, I've never had a problem with them over maybe six years worth of orders. They are a bit slower with delivery than others, but perfect if you're not in a hurry.

I regularly use 7 Day shop and they are excellent. A recent problem was resolved by e-mail within a few hours. Also, if out of stock on something, you do not get it charged to your card until it comes into stoc and they despatch it.

No association other than a satisfied customer.

Another vote for 7dayshop, I've used them for 4 years and I've had only one problem which was resolved quite quickly.

The fault I had was the card not 7dayshop.
7dayshop.com have alway's been helpfull and provided good service if there's been any issue with goods, yes delivery is a bit slower than some, maybe it's that more satisfied customers should leave them good reveiws instead of the knockers.I would order from them anytime their price is right.

7dayshop: if you take the FREE delivery its 7 days (or thereabouts) must be a deal with the post office, ALWAYS good service and excellent comms via email, with replacement (just the one!) fast

I seem to remember ebay admitting (about 3 years ago) over 60% of cards sold were likely to be fakes Sad

On another Forum, there was a thread where the buyer had wanted to returned a lens as damaged, allegedly dropped after delivery. The seller reported that Paypal had immediately recalled the payment from his bank account so that the buyer could be refunded.

All other reports about eBay have said that they're firmly on the side of the buyer and that the seller in guilty until proved innocent, especially where fake goods are concerned.

I normally sell rather than buy on eBay but wouldn't pay for goods with anything other than Paypal.
