I googled a few other stores that had well-priced SD cards, but these stores had 1-star reviews, where as Cheap Chips had good reviews, advertised genuine stock and only sells what is in stock...also, the prices were competitive, so I decided to buy from them.
The Cheap Chips website was easy to use, and I liked that they have a lot of information on card classes and uses, and you can even enter your camera model and it'll tell you which cards types it will take. I learned about cards types and I'm confident I got the right product. They ar...rived the next business day. I've given the cards are quick test; they work fine so far. I'd buy from them again. Very fast delivery-comprehensive website- genuine products- competitive pricing I'd have bought other products if they had a bigger range. But what they do, they do well.
Right from the start I am going to say that I am the Cheap Chips sales manager. I have logged in here to purely rebuff the comments from chipreview below.
Cheap Chips is an authorised seller of the SanDisk memory cards. Please go to the SanDisk official website and you can see that we are listed there. http://www.sandisk.com.au/Retail/Buy.aspx We only buy genuine cards from the authorised distributor of SanDisk in Australia. We have never sold "seconds" or "refurbished" cards and find this is a blatant liable slur of our reputable name.
Please do not hesitate to contact me personally if you have any concerns about the products we are selling.
Top site, I cant believe the negative reviews!
This is one of the only websites I trust on the Internet. They only show stuff when it is in stock. They get stuff released the same day even if you order at 4pm or 5pm daylight savings. They replaced an order once (their cost) when Australia Post lost the shipment. They answer the phone. They have good prices. They have reliable stock levels. What more can you ask for?? 5/5!
Good prices, good and honest stock levels, quick delivery
As I am a regular I have noticed the site goes down sometimes.. but thats about it.
Is the writing on the wall?
My first two orders for CF cards went without a hitch. I placed the order, paid and received everything within a couple of days. Both orders were in the hndreds $.
My latest order (backorder) for $23 has not turned up. Although ordered on April 4 2011 (and paid for) as at the date of writing.... Nothing. Despite sending 3 emails and having the 1800 number on their website ring out... still nothing. Not so much as an acknlowdgement.
I got so frustrated I emailed them and cancelled the order. Guess what... still no response and no refund.
I fear the signs are all too sinister.
I thought they were reliable, inexpensive and effiicient.... something has changed. I fear they may be out of business.

Know better, choose better.
Not helpful after the fact, tried to get after sales support or a swap and was told to basically fix it myself. wont use them again, buy from a reputable dealer
it was cheap but i think there is a reason
all the cards are already formatted so if your device, like your phone needs to format it itself these cards are useless. I assume they are seconds or refurbs as ALL of there stock is preformatted.
