Same here, no issues with 16Gb. Maybe it is a SanDisk batch problem as reported?

32GB died on me too. Sandisk.

It say SD card corrupted.

What worst is that it drain battery as the media runs in battery.

Batch problem la, confirmed by sandisk already.

SanDisk says it produced some bad 32GB and 64GB microSD cards

Hmm, I have a Lexar 32GB Class 10 that died on me barely a week after I bought it to replace the Sandisk I have in my S3 LTE. Whereas my old Sandisk 16GB Class 4 was okie thus far.

Unhappy Format SD card before using. Don't use Kingston

went down to Marina Square Service Centre weeks ago to see their answers on SD card issues. Many have been asking Samsung on fb on this issue, what FB says is that the SD card slot is loose.

But it's different from what the service centre says, they say nothing wrong with SD card slot. The problem is the micro SD card itself. Here's what they say

1) Format microSD card before using; using internal formatting.

2) Use Sandisk or Samsung microSD card is advisable. Not advisable for using Kingston.

My wife's Sandisk 32gb class 4 also died on her note 2.
Worse thing is it was bought from best bargain ...they have no stock for 1 to 1 exchange and got to wait for weeks.

Haven't seen this but as far as I know all failures reported were SanDisk. I didn't want to take the risk so I got a Samsung 32GB class 10 even though it is more expensive. After 3 months still no issue.
