    Just bought one from play.com

    They were £24.99 the other day

    I must stop spending money on this hobby :rotfl:

    Bought a polorizer filter and rocket blower the other day, hoping to get a zoom lens before the cash back runs out. By the summer I'll probably want the canon 10-22 or sigma 10-20 - It's never ending!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I bought 2 last week at that price.

    I did buy one when they were £24.99 though :mad:
    Obviously when i get them both im making a return to Play.com with one of the £17.99 ones but telling them its the £24.99, meaning i get my deserved £7 refund.

    Bargain for that price.

    I know, but there are other options, hence the link.

    Also, try Amazon.

    Hmmm, sold by "thecomponentshop".
    Always worry about buying stuff off Amazon when its not entirely new. Its an easy mistake to make on Amazon now, hence why i dont use them now.
    Also, their delivery prices can be astronomical at times.

    Bit cheeky I know ... but if anyone has ordered two cards I don't suppose they'd like to PM me one of the free licence numbers for Phase One Capture LE ... ;-)

    cheers

    I'll get the details when I pop home for lunch in about an hour...

    You are correct to be careful! SanDisk and Sony branded flash memory products sold at 'silly low prices' on either eBay or Amazon are almost always counterfeit. You should avoid any prices which are very low and not consistent with those offered by leading etailers as almost always, these are counterfeit.

    bought 2 before, they are very fast cards... may end up getting some more... great cards... :clap:

    I had previously bought off ebay - but they were fakes so I got my money back. At least you can trust play.com to not sell us fakes (I hope).
