World's Highest Capacity microSD Card Stories June 26, 2015

SanDisk unveiled its 200GB microSD card a few months back at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. At that time we were given an estimated street date of Q2 2015 and an MSRP of $399.99. Well, this giant microSD just became available for purchase from Amazon for $239.02.

It features transfer speeds of up to 90MB/s and packs enough storage to accommodate up to 20 hours of full HD video. By no means is this card necessary for average consumers, but professionals with a big tech budget may be able to justify it. MicroSD cards make for great additions to phones and digital cameras for storing photos, videos or apps and can be even be added to MacBooks with one of these adapters. SanDisk’s 128GB version priced at $78.99 is the smarter purchase for most people.

SanDisk’s 200GB beauty is currently the “world’s highest capacity microSD card,” but that may soon change since Microdia already detailed its plans for a 512GB card.

World's Highest Capacity microSD Card Stories March 2, 2015

SanDisk 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. expand full story
