SanDisk’s groundbreaking microSD card will stuff an extra 200GB in your MacBook, smartphone, GoPro, more

sandisk-ultra-200gb-microsdxcSanDisk has taken the wraps off “the world’s highest capacity microSD card.” Packed with 200GB of speedy flash storage, the SanDisk Ultra microSDXC Premium Edition card represents a jump of 56% over the previous record holder. It can move data at up to 90MB/s, which SanDisk says is fast enough to transfer up to 1,200 photos per minute.

A 200GB microSD card is an eye-popping achievement. Just consider that it’s more space than many people’s laptops and more than 150% larger than the biggest available iPhone. Slide it into your Android smartphone or tablet, GoPro, and other portable gadgets and you’ll instantly have access to a massive amount of storage.

This is also big news for Mac users. We’ve shared with you just how easy it is to upgrade MacBook Air/Retina MacBook Pro laptops with a microSD card. Using the same method of theminidrive
putting SanDisk’s new microSD card into a custom MacBook adapter, you’ll now be able to add 200GB of semi-permnenant storage to your Mac.

The 200GB model isn’t due to hit stores until Q2 this year and will be priced at $399.99.

My recommendation? If you aren’t in dire need of that much space, just buy last years 128GB model for $100.

Luckily a couple accessory makers have tackled this issue by moving the iMac’s USB ports to its front panel.

One deal we’re currently featuring solves this problem for just $6.17 Prime shipped, while another new product adds even more functionality but at a higher price point… Read more
