    I went with a 64GB Samsung EVO from amazon. I wouldn't get it on ebay unless its from a reputable seller. I went with the EVO over the PRO mainly because my plans for the sd card is to just leave it in my Note 4 for storing photos, videos, music, and apps. I don't plan on removing it to transfer files between devices. So the read/write speed between the EVO and PRO wont mean anything for me, I just save a few bucks with the EVO.

    There is a limit in read/write speed on the Note 4 but I honestly don't know what they are, I'm a patient guy, I can wait a bit longer for my stuff to read/write, EVO works great for my purpose. If speed is important to you when you remove the sd card to transfer files to and from your computer, then go with the PRO.

    Also I thought I read the type of memory is used between them. The NAND memory in the pro is better similar to the whole iPhone memory debacle. I think I read this somewhere when I was researching for them a while back but I could be wrong

    Assistance please.
    I just bought my Note 4 Wed. and it came with a 32gig card. I want to install a sandisk 64-which I have- and would appreciate if you would provide suggestions as to how to remove the existing card in that slot which is difficult to remove. Maybe a thin knife to get the plastic section to lift out of the slot?

    Unlike SIM cards, Micro SD cards have a ridge that makes them easy to remove by pulling.
    Make sure you are not confusing the SIM card for Micro SD card. The Micro SD card slot is closer to the camera and marked “microSD.” On new phones the Micro SD card slot is usually empty.

    To remove a Micro SD card, hook the ridge with nail, and pull the card out.

    You do not need a knife at all and I would strongly advise you not to use any sharp object.
    You can just use your finger and pull it out. There should be a small thick handle on the end of the micro sd card.

    I think Samsung makes great products besides tvs and some people would argue phones as well . I love Samsung phones but won't try a budget Samsung TV ....had dead pixels and this weird green hue to the screen when I bought it and was the cheapest model series the 4000 series I think it was

    Yeah I got screwed on eBay buying a battery for my camcorder. It ended up being a counterfeit battery made in China which I wasn't made aware of until it got to my home. Battery lasted like 2 weeks before it wouldn't hold a charge anymore. Haven't purchased from eBay since.

    I would too. I find that Ebay has far more fake, counterfeit electronics than any other site. I don't trust Ebay when comes to electronics.

    Wow you are just lazy. Read your sellers feedback. Only buy from the states. I have over 500 transactions with no regrets. You must be an easy target, that's all I can say.

    I know how to buy from Ebay. You can read the feedback all you want, but guess what? You just might be the first to give that person their first negative. If you really know Ebay, then you know that most sellers never see the product they sell. They are only the middle man. Ask how many people on here have been burned by buying from an American seller. Do you read the labels of the products you buy? Most are made overseas. I don't buy Ebay batteries or SD cards, and I don't advise others to do so. If you do, you are taking a risk.

    Consumer commentary in websites has to be taken with a grain of salt. The first problem is that you don't know who's talking. When you hear someone say "Best camcorder ever," is this someone who has evaluated 70 of them, or someone who got their first one? The second problem is that feedback, reviews--these days there are companies manipulating them in one fashion or another. You go onto Amazon and look at reviews at new ebooks and it seems sometimes like half of them were based on copies sent out by the author to selected people chosen by the author. The review may in fact be honest--but the entire process is grossly distorted when people, particularly people who may not know the genre they're reviewing, are being solicited aggressively for reviews and handpicked by the creative professional. Good, bad or indifferent--whatever arguments one wants to present--one thing is clear: the very nature of the process has been changed by the creative professional. It was supposed to be a random selection of people motivated only by their like or dislike of the product. Now, it's a chosen selection of people with incentives --and obligations--to produce reviews and look upon the author kindly.

    This happens with other products, too. I left a negative review once of an Anker product. After some discussion with a CSR, they conceded I had a point in why I disliked the product. They offered me a refund. While (happily and to their credit) they didn't condition the refund on my withdrawing the negative review, they were fairly aggressive in suggesting that the review be withdrawn. If I did that, it distorts the review process and leaves only the Pollyanna part. My position was--thanks very much, but the product still has an inherent problem that other people are entitled to know about. I'm not deleting it just because you offered a refund.

    When it comes to "ratings" of sellers, there have been countless scandals on how those are pumped up, too. Networks of people supporting each other, making $5 purchases to then be counted as reliable on $3,000 sales, or whatever...

    I am by no means claiming all of online feedback is useless. But certainly you sure better take it with a grain of salt. Or two or three grains. That's the only point.

    Really ? I love Anker products in general and do get some free stuff to review every once in a while though I find one of their products to break down a bit since its on its 2nd replacement but find them to be sturdy. I didn't find them to be such aggressive on my average review of a product.


    I have a 100% eBay seller rating myself because I pay on time and send stuff correctly and etc .

    You just need to actually read the ratings and not just look at the number

    I had a relatively negative review. I suppose it is a matter of interpretation whether that means "average" or not. But I couldn't recommend the product. Many emails ensued.

    I would certainly agree that there is a line between "good service" and "manipulation." It is hard to say where that line is crossed at times. But I think it was crossed here.

    You're experience seemed to be aggressive . Everybody's experience is different . I while hate t-mobile and being have had bad customer service experience at 2 separate times which made me leave I will never ever go back to t-mobile but some people never had issues with them and I would still suggest them because who knows he or she might have a better experience .

    Reading the rating is very important, especially when you are dealing with someone who sells more than one product. I look for the rating that deal with the product I am interested in.

    I got two extra batteries from a company called Hyperion on amazon. Came with two batteries and a wall charger. So far they seem to last just as long as the OEM battery.
