Has anyone bought a "Amazon Basics" brand product?

I was looking at a few items on Amazon and a couple of items caught my eye. They were "AmazonBasics" products that included SD cards, wall mounts, HDMI cables, etc. I mean I trust Amazon as a seller, but what about as a product manufacturer. Or are they just rebranding items from another company?

If you have bought one of the products, what do you think of their quality? Is it worth the money to invest in them?

They are just rebranding someone else's stuff. I bought some HDMI cables and they were totally fine.

Bought some USB cables. Seem to work good. I like the concept of Amazon Basics. With Amazon branding, you know you can return it if it is broken.

Yes, so far just cables but they were properly packaged and worked fine. I would have no problem buying an Amazon branded product. They seem to do their homework and respect their brand so they don't put their name on junk.

I have bought many Basic products without any issues, but be aware that they are not always the best deal.

my guess is they are rebranding.
personally i have bought HDMI cables and a Camera bag and i have been happy with both and the cost was good so i would buy an Amazon Basic item again if it was offered for what i was looking for.

Now if they would expand that other things... Maybe an Amazon Basic Phone or Tablet? probably not but the lower price would be nice and i do trust the brand.

I've bought a number of HDMI, DVI and TOS Link cables. They all worked great with no problems whatsoever.

I bought an 8GB SDHC memory card and had no problem in either my SLR or point and shoot camera, as well as in the computers.
