Bought a card long story short it was fake
I bought a sandisk extreme from their website it arrived i put it in the computer and there was error messages took it to my local harvey norman they said the cards fake or faulty I tried to send it back they gave me an address but they haven’t contacted me about it or anything.
Advertising a lowest price guarantee but not matching the lowest price
I wanted to buy a Lexar 600X 64GB 90MB/s High Performance Micro SD Memory Card - With USB 3.0 Card Reader and found a price on another Australian page which was 454 cheaper. i contacted cheap chips and they said that the product i found on the other website was bad quality (even though it is the same brand make model, everything) they said they will not match the price.
this is false advertising on their homepage.
Would not buy there.
Poor customer service.
I bought a GoPro from their website. It arrived promptly, and via courier, however didn't work. Took a long time to get an email response, I had to pay for the return postage (after the camera being a lot more expensive than the competitor's), and still haven't heard back about a replacement.
Terrible customer service!!!
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.

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.
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.
