64gb ? Possibly.

Genuinely a class 10 ? Very unlikely.

The Chinese market is flooded with fake, dodgy and incorrectly spec'd memory cards. A lot of these cards will often identify as the labelled capacity but when you go to use them you find you have massive amounts of corrupted space on them. It's not uncommon to find a cheap 64gb card with 30gb or less usable storage.

I'll only buy from authorised distributes or reputable dealers when it comes to storage.

I got a 64GB card from amazo for $40. I say spend the extra cash and get a card with a return policy.

Shame its a class 4 else I might have given it a try.
Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.

I talked about the fake capacity issue with FT (after I had a mere "2Gb" being a 475Mo, true story). I asked them to consider performing a h2testw testing and report the real capacity on the product page just like they do for the batteries (stated capacity Vs real tested capacity). I have no idea if they plan doing it or what; I say don't buy any memory (sd or usb drives) unless you can find a report from another buyer on the forums or until FT decides to be transparent about the capacity and let people decide whether they want to buy it or not.
