good quality, good price, no complaints
SanDisk has always been a brand I trust, whether for 3.5" floppy disks back in the day, or with more modern USB (thumb) drives.
With the growing use of smart phones -- and the growing installation of manufacturers' and cellular providers' bloatware on the phones' hard drives ( which you can't remove without rooting your phone and risking bricking it), you really need a big MicroSD to store your phone stuff. The other lousy development is Android 4.4 onward force you to download EVERYTHING to your phone's hard drive. (You can move it later, on some phones, but often only with the proprietary file management software, and at a painstakingly slow pace: one file at a time.)
I bought 2 of these and have used the same one in my last 3 Android smart phones, and the other in 3 different tablets. I've never reformatted the smartphone MicroSD. I have reformatted the MicroSD used with my tablets once.
Both are still working great.

Poor Sandisk Service
Update 10/17/13 After answering MANY questions from Sandisk, they did replace the defective card. I assume there are so many counterfeits out there that they are just trying to weed out the fakes that people try to return. In summary the disk failed, but after answering all their questions Sandisk did replace it and honored their warranty. They also paid shipping both ways..to return defective disk and send out a new one. Hopefully the replacement will be reliable.
Quit working shortly after purchase. Contacted San Disk via chat. It was as if they refused to believe me. Then they sent this questionaire to verify if I was eligible for warranty replacement.
1. Phone Number?
2. Product code written on the face of the card
3. Your complete physical address (No P.O. Box please)
4. From where did you purchase this product?
5. Exact or approximate Date of Purchase of the card in the format of MM/DD/YYYY
6. Was card included in the packaging with the phone or device (bundle deal)?
7. How was the product packaged at the time of purchase?
8. Did the packaging have some other company name and logos on it?
09. Are you getting the product replaced for the first time by SanDisk?
10. Do you have any important data on the product?
11. Do you allow SanDisk to share your personal information with our shipping provider (UPS/Other) for delivery purposes?

Worked for a few months... now DEAD
It worked for a few months, but now my Galaxy Note 1 says : no memory card installed. I took it out numerous times and reinstalled it, but nothing helps. My phone does not recognize it and I cannot take any photos or access my photo gallery on my smart phone. I've lost my photos and all my music and everything that was on the card. Of course it's past the 30 day return policy and now I'm stuck with having to buy another one. It won't be Sandisk. Giving it 2 stars because it was not DOA, but expected it work wayyyy longer than it did. Very unhappy....
*Update March 22, 2013: I took it to a technician and he tested it and said it was corrupted. It has been in my phone since I received it and has never been removed until it said "no memory card installed". This verifies my opinion that the card just went bad for no reason. Now I wish I had given it 1 star.
** Update March 26: I talked to SanDisk and they agreed to replace it with free shipping. So it's in the mail to be returned to them and they will replace it as soon as they receive it. I guess I'll try it again, since this time it's free. At least they stand behind their product and it's only fair of me to update my review. Customer service is very important and they are taking care of the defective card.

Easy way to upgrade your Android Phone
After a little over 3 years of usage, the card suddenly stopped working last month. At first I thought it was my phone that was the problem, but I swapped out a different micro SD card and it worked fine. Luckily the product comes with a 5 year warranty. I contacted Sandisk and had a replacement within 2 weeks. The replacement they sent was actually an upgraded model at a faster speed. That being said, I removed 2 stars from my rating because if I had pictures or files on the SD card that I hadn't backed up, I would have lost it all suddenly with no warning.
I purchased this SD card to put in my Galaxy S4 phone and expand the memory. The 32 GB card is double what is built in the phone and allows me to keep all my music and pictures on there. The class 4 rating is fine for the music and pictures I use, there was no need to pay for a higher class rating for what I use it for.

Name brand and super cheap.
For this price, I can't believe that I can hold 32GB of information on a sliver of plastic the size of my pinkie thumbnail.
If there's one thing I've learned about these, buying those no-name sd cards is a good way to waste money; I have tossed 5 out in the last year. Always buy a recognized name with memory.
If your phone or device has one of these slots and there's not a 32GB or larger card in it, this purchase is a no-brainer.
On a side note, It sickens me to see Apple and now even Google charging up to 100$ for what is essentially half of this card. Cloud storage will be great when we all have unlimited data for dirt cheap prices, but until then why don't these companies save some spectrum and give us an SD card slot in nexus products and iphones? Greedy, Greedy. At least the Samsung GS3 still loves SD...

If card fails, SanDisk won't help much
This is the second SanDisk microSD card I have bought, I had to replace the first one after losing my cell phone. I had used the first card for about a year without problems so when I lost my phone I bought the same card again. The second card worked fine for 6 months before it unexpectedly failed over the weekend while taking photos and video at a festival with my Samsung Galaxy S3. When I googled "SanDisk SD Card Galaxy S3" a bunch of results came back about how SanDisk has admitted that there is a manufacturing defect with 16GB/32GB SanDisk MicroSD cards when used in Samsung Galaxy S3s and if anyone has a problem to contact them for a replacement. After calling today and explaining the problem with my SD card and how I had found online statements from SanDisk stating about the defects in their cards, I then had to spend 20 minutes "troubleshooting" my SD card with SanDisk customer service. I explained when I had called that my computer and phone were unable to even detect the card however that did not stop the customer service agent from trying to get me to insert my SD card in as many devices as possible to see if any of them would detect the card. (It didn't.) After being put on hold for 10 minutes, the agent came back to tell me that I would be receiving a replacement card and then asked if I wanted the data from the card. I said if it was possible that would be nice and was then told that SanDisk has an agreement with a third party data retrieval service and that he would be happy to give me their rates and prices for data retrieval. I asked why I would want to pay money to have my data extracted from the card when it was due to their manufacturing defect that the card was corrupted in the first place and was told that was SanDisk's policy as they themselves do not do data retrieval. After I then declined the data retrieval I was told that first my replacement request has to be processed which will take 24 - 48 hours then I will receive an email with a shipping label from UPS which I can then use to send the SD Card to SanDisk, all at my cost. After that I can expect another 7 - 10 days of processing and then I should receive my replacement card in the mail within 2 weeks. Basically if your card fails, SanDisk will do the bare minimum to replace your card, assuming they approve the request. I am disappointed with my experience using this product.

Failed at 8 Months, But RMA is Easy
On the one hand, knowing that RMA is easy should never be a good sign of a product. On the other hand, I have had enough experiences with other companies for tech products to know that if you have enough tech, eventually something will go wrong and it's nice to know there's a competent RMA to get through it.
I've used a variety of memory card types in the past, and Sandisk has always worked best for me. This is the first one that's actually failed on me (at least without some type of known precipitating cause like rapid-deceleration or drowning). With that in mind, this card worked strong for 8 months in my HTC Evo 3D. When it started randomly unmounting from the Android OS, it took 4-5 restarts (and a battery remove, card remove/reinsert at about restart 2) to get the card in a state where Android OS would offer (and succeed) at formatting it. Oddly enough, on choosing the format option, the card would start working again and retained all it's data. However, after another 2-3 days, it would dismount again. Luckily, I was able to backup the entire set of contents to my computer after this recovery before the next failure.
Knowing all that, I submitted an RMA to Sandisk, and I should be getting one in the mail in soon. So while this product failed for me in a relatively short period of time, I'm still giving it 4 stars because Sandisk is standing behind their product. However, I will admit that my rating would likely have been far lower had I not been able to recover any of my data.

Solid SD card, Great Value.
I used these in a pair of cheap Tablets (Kocasa brand I think?) I bought, as well as in my HTC EVO 4G LTE for many years. I had a few issues occasionally, where the phone or tablet would want to format the disks because it couldn't read from them, but it was very intermittent. and they work fairly well otherwise. I usually played with the connections and the card in the socket a little, sometimes rebooting the device, and it eventually went away. I did put the phone through hell though, traveling across the country with it, North to South for 2 winters, and Jacksonville, Florida to Seattle, Washington for an entire summer of camping, concerts, kayaking/paddle-boarding and more. It was a little slower than using USB 2.0 thumb drives, but I tried not to keep the card full and use "Over The Air" transfer methods so I didn't notice it very often. Great value.

SanDisk is a really good and quality product at a excellent price
Quality produced. 2DayDeliver got my order to me promptly as promised. SanDisk is a really good and quality product at a excellent price. I have bought their computer That said-- is it not amazing how much memory (i.e., 32 GB) can be placed on such a little piece of plastic with a few very thin metallic tabs and whatever is on the inside. Darn, it is so small I have to be careful at my age not to loose it -- what advancements. I go back to a time when 512K was all the back-up per unit that was available -- which was on a size about 1/2 the size of a playing card. Now a back-up unit the size -- not of my thumb nail but my index finger nail -- can hold all that info -- copy to and replay and dump it back with lighting speed. And yes SanDisk makes these same sized memory cards that hold every more GBs of data. Anyway, buy this product, trust it, and use 2DayDeliver.

Great Buy for simple Micro SD Card
I just got a new Android phone and needed to expand the memory in it. I saw this and it was very cheap (comparing to the big box stores), it was SanDisk a name I trust, and it was the max that my phone would allow. The card comes in a standard cardboard packaging in a plastic container, this buy only included the card, no adapter or anything else. I already had a SD card adapter so I did not need one anyway, but you can also (for most cases) put the card in the device and mount the storage through the device. For example. my Android smartphone can be plugged into the computer and the SD card is mounted and accessible to write to (need to adjust setting to make this work).
In the end this is a great buy for a Micro SD card of this size (32GB) and works perfect in my Sony XPERIA Sola Android smartphone. I am able to have all my music and a few of my favorite movies on the card and leave all the internal phone memory for applications. I am happy with this purchase it was very cheap and was exactly what I needed to max out my phone's storage space! If you are looking for a simple Micro SD card, that can hold a lot and is cheap (money not quality) then this is for you!
NOTE: Most devices have limits on how large of a memory card they can use, so make sure that your device can support 32GB before purchasing!
