    And right after you buy this card at such a great deal, Google “Memory Card Recovery”, because you’re going to need it.

    Seriously, if you want your photos to make it to your computer, don’t cheap out on the card.

    I’ve used this card for well over two years and have never lost information.

    Are they original? And is this shop reliable?

    They should be. It’s a pretty large online retailer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buy.com

    It should be noted and disclosed that a $10 mail-in-rebate from buy.com is required to get the $23 price. A limit of two purchased cards can be turned in for a rebate. The rebate is only available through buy.com. When you check out they will still be $33.

    About the quality of these cards, well lets say I have washed and dried one of these cards and was still able to retrieve all photos from the card, didn’t loose a one. I still have the card as well and still use the card and works just fine. I have used these and other Kingston cards and never had an issue. Which is good enough for me.
