Hi there
I would like your opinions on this situation.
Based on an article I read, It seems I have two counterfeit SD cards and one real one. They’re all sandisk. The only thing I don’t understand is that these two apparently counterfeit cards haven’t shown any sign of issues. I have used them throughout around two years and they both are pretty much their full size. For instance the 62gb one is around 59gb usable. I have filled them both to the max and all the data was fine. I just question their trust now as I just bought a 128gb that has the real look to a Sandisk card while the two I always used don’t and are shown in a blog saying their fake. I two links of some photos for you to see here, the third one in each photo is the 128 real Sandisk card. The others, 64 and 32, don’t match on the back. However I do find that the fake cards do have the same front as the real card. I have seen the front look more phoney on other knock offs so I’m really not sure if what I have is truly counterfeit but figure it must be. I appreciate your help

SD cards should be used for temp storage and for transfering data only, they can and will go bad, be they counterfit or genuine. Never ever store important files on an SD card.

That being said, if the cards work for you, then I wouldn't worry about it.
