32GB cards getting cheaper - Verbatim anyway

I'm after 12 32GB SDHC cards so have been googling each week to check prices. This week it seems easy to buy Verbatim Class 6 cards for less than 65 UK pounds each which is a big difference from 90-120 UK pounds.

Thought I'd let you know in case it helps.

I assume Verbatim cards will work with the HM100 fine?

No problems so far...

Got 4 x 32GB Verbatim cards for my HM700 and HM100 last week. Filmed several hours of footage. No problems so far...

Define "better" - and says who? Transcend offers a lifetime warranty, btw.

If they are from China they are most likely counterfeit. Check the numbers of the Transcend web page.

Here is the Transcend verification page. You input the cards ID and serial number and find out if it is genuine or counterfeit.
Welcome to Transcend Website

Please let us know if the 32 GB $39 cards are real.

I see on ebay a Hong Kong power seller that sells the $32 GB Transcend Class 6 SDHC for $115.49 with free shipping. I am guessing these are real as I have bought things from Hong Kong sellers like this one (with many sales and high ratings) with no problems. However, $39 seems a bit of a stretch.

The $115 price is about twice a 16 GB card and seems likely.

They are dust and moisture proof (important for me as I do 99% outdoor). They are also ESD proof.

Very good! However, since I live in California that's another 9.75% or thereabouts sales tax.

And the politicians want to raise the taxes more.

Bogus Ebay seller of 32GB Cards. My apologies

The cards labeled as 32GB are in fact 8GB. My apologies to all for posting the information.
His email is digitalting0303@gmail.com and it seems if you "google" this email address, he has quite a checkered past.
