What is the difference between the two cards? I think one is the one where you had a 50/50 chance of getting a good on (one with some empty eggs) and then the one with all 5 eggs is the new revised card.

Just need to make sure ordering in about 10 miuntes, help!

I would definitely go with the

Take the chance with more reviews, even if some complain about duds. The specs are identical.

thanks everyone for the replies!

I went with your advice, because I think I read somewhere that there were defective models and about half with DOD (dead on deleivery)

And it was fixed in the new model. This was cheaper too. So ill take my chances with the new one. Just bought the card, thanks guys
