  1. As of 2019 Sandisk does do a micro SD at 1TB,

    >BUT!< there are no retailers currently selling it, (also trying to get anything past 128GB £35-50, is near impossible in store)

  2. I'd use a sd card of 400Gb with a usb card reader for like 60-90 dollars in total as a usb stick.

  3. Krecoo are crap they say there class 10 SDXC UH1~1 there not that's why you can buy a 256 GB in eBay for 7 pounds . Use as external SD on phone don't bother apps you transfer just won't load get a Samsung Evo plus more money but worth it plus uses UHS-3 speeds .

  4. The China are low grade SD cards and they put class 4 6 10 UHS 1 there not there crap low quality . The price will tell you that.

  5. I sell stuff on eBay and I once sold cards just like this without realizing it. Only realised when a customer explained it to me. Accidentally ripped off a load of people and lost quite a bit of money as I obviously couldn't sell them.

  6. @ 11:28 Anthony doesn't know his powers of two… 2^15 = 32768, plus, 32 GB is 32000 MB, we're talking gigabytes and megabytes, not gibibytes and mebibytes

  7. In the package says SD "HC" And what i know is that the sd card is no mear to the claimed capacity if it uses hc tech, since sd hc is maxed at 32gb, instead you should search for SDXC instead

  8. The scary part is that Linus' rant at the begging is REALLY convincing. i almost expected him to transit into Moon landing conspiracies and Clockwork Elves without taking a breath!

  9. Have you ever tried doing computer stuff on a wooden boat swimming in the rough sea? Pirates don`t have it that easy you know.

  10. Why he is saying it is fake he didn't try it on another computer, the sd task is to store files on it he can store 100 Gb video file or more and try it on another computer and he can watch the video ,He didn't try that and he says 47 Gb in the video and you can see how he create a 32GB disc in inside of it . The video he tried was corrupted and after testing it he says that it is fake if you do not Tested it right don't say it is fake that's my opinion.

  11. Obviously its a good scam, look at these fools, and at 18000 sells

  12. They make fake eggs. Yes, chicken eggs.
    Here is a Chinese proverb not many foreigners know,
    "If you can cheat your own mom and get away with it, but you don't, then you're stupid".

  13. And you feel like you're watching paint dry?
    I've always been wary of any product that's "Made in China." So many warnings about Chinese scams, how can anyone really trust their products? They almost always break soon after purchase or they're made from poor quality materials.

  14. Some of these product descriptions are absolutely hilarious, I remember one of them said "new upgraded SD card capacity has been expanded and upgraded from original". When I asked the seller what that meant, they said that they were able to "increase the onboard storage capacity" of these cards. Suspicious…

  15. Every SD card on wish is fake. I bought three 256GB SD cards and I have software that reveals the true capacity and they where all 16 GB

  16. I remember there being a tool on backtrack for testing and reprogramming all storage.
    It tested the available storage bit by bit, then gave you a number range to give an accurate report of size.
    You could also change it to report insane numbers in seconds without the scan.

  17. I feel for this shit, I didnt realize it until I tried formatting it for my MoTo as an internal drive.. It is usable in that config..

  18. If you watch this in .75 speed it sounds like Linus is trying really hard to pull off a scripted video drunk!

  19. Long time fan, first time subscriber…………sorry I'm a slacker. Just needed to say that I hate all the YouTube advertising, jarring cuts to commercial, terribly bad content creator plugs and so on……..That said, your segways to product placement are hands down the best. I never know when its coming, its creative and makes it more enjoyable. Anyway, thank you for all the hard work and good vids.

  20. I have a 32gb Sandisk extreme, I recently went into Disk Management and realised there is another 32gb that is inaccessible. I tried formatting and extending bit couldn't do anything.

  21. Today you can get 2 1TB "Unbranded" micro sd cards for only 9.99$. Bargin of a life. Linus must order 100+

  22. Hello I recently bought pendrive from China and for some reason it won't work after talking with sealer hi give me one of his software to reprogram pendrive and it works .and at the same time I ordered 128 gb pd also (fake one) I format with that with same software and whola it's showing real size and working properly

  23. huge editing team, can't get a decent closeup shot of the card so we can see exactly what he's going on about with the fonts

  24. there is a program that checks the size of an sd card, not by what the sd says, not by the amount of data you can upload on that, but by the amount of (memory cells or something like that).

  25. I actually bought a 400GB and two 128GB cards from Alibaba just to prove to myself they were fake. The 128s were actually 128MB (because there's a reason to make that in the 2nd decade of the 21st century). The 400GB really was 400GB but about as fast as a 3.5" floppy drive. It also randomly erased itself periodically.

  26. I got a 128Gb micro SD on ebay. Plugged it in my phone and it was constantly having to be removed and put back in to be recognised. after a week, it just kept saying it needs to be formatted (even after formatting it countless times) but never worked. I got a full refund without returning it! I put it in my camera, it worked after a format, takes 20-30 photos then the rest show up fully black. It cost me a fair bit, about 20% lower than the powerseller prices, but they guarantee a authentic product I guess. I never replaced it as I never liked micro SD cars. They always fail withing a few years and are so easy to break! broke 6 of them already, usually they snap inside my phone when i drop it or they break inserting/removing them…… ohh, and my dog ate my 64Gb one lol

  27. I am glad to have seen your video I bought a Verbatim 256GB card microsd with several adapters in the package like a usb with microsd slot in the back and the usual SD card with a micro slot in the back. There seemed to be no alarming issues at close glance he fonts seemed god the entire thing seems legit and well presented. So I went to move me ableton live files and loopmasters clips from my laptop to my PC. I cut and pasted te loopmasters files with about 126GB of sounds , Loops, and Midi sequence as well as sample records to make My clips for use in the remixes I am working on. When I left the house it said 4 hours till completion of transfer Mnd ou i assumed it was slow because of a particular individual I may or ma not have possibly definitely not applied centrifugal force tot henetted bag I had the Laptop In as I was being belittled and bitched at b so jerk of an imp ho thinks because he has a job as a manager at a food store in the mall that he is sme kind of superhero…SO like I said I most definitely did not hurk my laptop at the individuals head at an undisclosed location in the united states where I was definitely not being yelled at for being concerned more about my life than the profitability of the paco's tacos stand and its portion control that gets all f___ed up when THe homies are working the line cause they hook everyone up not just their friends but everyone gets double servings of bourbon chicken and shrimp wit lobster sauce, so hen he twas to scared to say anything to the people h know whee doing in stead of ratting them out I had to reach deep not my inner Jerry Maguire and go off on the pathetic little dude 33 and at a dead end job in the prime of his life and when he told me I better watch who I was talking to I snapped a bit more and may have deffnatel not got midevil on his asss ofr a minute when I knew the cameras could not seno evil and unfortunately the bag slipped and definitely did not fly at his head hitting the wall behind him and then immediately moving forward…to pick up my CPU of course…the little man thought I was after him and started to whimper that he was sorry…there it was my golden opportunity…"YES YOU AREA SORRY MOTHERF___C_r and you will always be a sorry pathetic loser with no bca bone and skin like a snake shedding as he goes pretending to be the man of steel when is nothing more than the man of kale. The reason I ell the ridiculously long story is that one, The fact that his face actually changed like 5 different expressions as the object that was not flying at him full force he went from BAdass angry stomping bots guy with the scrunched up forehead and thick ass eyebrows that make him look like he is always planning something sleazy. Then He had a second of thinking did he just say what I think he just said…oh hell no….Then came the WHy I ought to …..MEan face like popeye the sailor man…but he must have forgot his spinach because he went from I'm strong to the finish cause I eats me spinach …to scaling the wall of the countertop to get some coverage between the two of us. ….as he realized that not only was the bag with acpu and a efw accessories init flying right at him but he recognized my face ad shifted form YEa I said it that's right and I am coming for you next word that comes out your mouth…scrunched eyebrows and evil eyes then about 4 steps into it I switched to " What the ….did I just throw a perfectly good computer at this useless ass knucklehead damn I am not gonna be happy when that gets where its goin…then my face was strait please God let me catch it before it hits the all or the linoleumI don't have anything on tha hard drive saved and I was working for weeks on about 30 separate projects. So, after he hauled ass to the back storage room and locked himself in pretending to call the cops, I say pretend because he had way too much dope on hi to call the police eve if the place was robbed. meanwhile yelled back he does not have to worry about me i am good but oh uea I finn quit so you can have fun covering my sht for the rest of the week Ashole. That fet really good, but then back to the SD card i was already home praying to the Gods of Flash memory and Drive lore please bring me back t life…and there it was I got the flies the damn thing still worked just have to plug in a keyboard but the kicker is here…dudh duh duhhhh! THe funniest part was when he was thinking I was going after him I was almost able to watch it and stop the insanity, but alas I did not and it hit the stupid ass Carrossel rie where you put a quarter in it and it just goes up and down cause its a ghetto ass ride that only works partially. The Cd rom Shattered off but who cares about that no one needs cds anymore or a DVD player.BUt my music…SO I get home and try to transfer the music to my PC it only lets me get it the first 100 fies about 32 gigs. I never saw that though until today I just assumed it was with my PAyton Manning skills or the fact that it never got transferred in the first place. now I See that exactly 32 gigs is where it stops I know now that I know nothing John Snow…DAmn those Chinese fakeparts producers I thought just once it would be real but my life is big pile of shit and everything in it turns to the same just because God Likes to see me struggle through every moment of every day. They are definitely getting a lot of people and they offer 32 64 128 256 512 1nd 1 tb all form same company

  28. lol, I got scammed on 64gb SD card couple years back which turned out to be 8gb storage with "64gb" illusion drive

  29. The way it works? The controller chip maps memory addresses that don’t exist. Sd cards write consecutively (as we already know because they don’t manage wear). This means it starts with register 0000 and goes ip to whatever register the controller says is the last address. So once the small registers fill up it will eventually write to nonexistent memory. So it basically dumps it with out an error.

  30. If there are micro SD cards out there with 1tb and 2tb… Why the hell do smaller hard drives even exist? Shouldn't the standard capacity for a hard drive be at least 2tb now? I just don't understand how such massive micro SD cards exist for so much less money, and yet hard drives don't generally go past 4tb. And hard drives coming with machines and game consoles STILL only having 500gb??

  31. I bought a 2TB usb stick from Amazon, got it, wasn't the same colour, and it was 1tb. I thought it was strange because the 2tb stick was the same price as the 1tb stick.

  32. If it was a 32GB card, they should have done a bit less than 32gb since cards advertised as 32gb are never 32gb. I'd probably just put it at 31gb to be safe

  33. i'm also guilty of buying one white-colored with transparent lid 128 GB OTG USB Flash Drive for only about 5$. Turned out it was only 32 GB.
    Fool me once, shame on them. Fool me twice, shame on me.

  34. ive doanloaded thousands of free font packs and copied them from games,software etc.that had them in clear format^^

  35. I see you may have a comotia A+, but uou are missing yhe Net+. Obviousky your cat5 ethernet caes needs to be organized. No worries, I have a wireless ethernet solution that routes all your connections from your switch closet directly to your pc via wireless connection. Not a NiC card but again the solution is simple.
    You should get Net+ certified.

  36. Ok so you COULD have a 1TB micro-sd card but they'd be for pro photographers or for high storage in a small space needed for a lab ect.

    if you look past the 20 dollar 1TB microsd cards on amazon you will find real ones for 1100 – 2000 dollars…

  37. looks like there stall up to no good but maybe I'm wrong
