Product Information:

Kingston Technology is committed to eliminating counterfeit product from the marketplace.

Counterfeiters do not honor safety and environmental regulations nor uphold the quality standards for which Kingston is known. Additionally, counterfeiters negatively affect the entire economy through lost revenues and taxes.

You cannot determine the actual memory capacity of a counterfeit memory card by simply viewing the capacity displayed by your computer, phone or camera. Counterfeiters fraudulently overwrite the cards internal memory with a false capacity. It must be checked with a test program.

To check if your Micro SD drive has the capacity and speed stated, "H2testw" is a simple tool that is distributed for free, does not require installation and offers a very simple, easy-to-use interface. The program can be used by anyone who wants to know how their actual product compares to others, the real capacity and the amount of errors that can be detected on their device.

The Secure Digital standard is maintained by the SD Association (SDA). The Secure Digital format includes four card families; the original Standard-Capacity (SDSC), the High-Capacity (SDHC), the eXtended-Capacity (SDXC), and the SDIO. The cards are available in three form factors; original, mini size, and micro size.

The only way to guarantee the authenticity of a Kingston product is to purchase it via a reputable partner.
