Earlier this week at MWC, SanDisk unveiled their newest UHS-I Ultra microSD card for mobile devices with 128GB of storage. Yes, they doubled the 64GB cards most of your Samsung’s devices can support, but still brought the same Class 10 speeds. We are looking at 30MB/s, water/magnet/shock/temperature proof, and in a package that comes with a regular sized SD adapter.
The new cards originally retailed for $199, but thanks to Amazon, that price was short-lived. These brand new 128GB microSD cards from SanDisk can be had for $119.99. No coupon needed – just a straight up discount.
SanDisk claims that you can store up to 16 hours of Full HD video, 7,500 songs, 3,200 photos and more than 125 apps. That’s a lot of goodies stored on your phone or tablet, assuming your phone or tablet has an SD card slot or supports USB OTG. We are also waiting for word back from SanDisk on an officially supported list, but if your device supports SDXC, you could be OK.

SanDisk introduced a new product this morning called the Ultra Dual USB Drive (long name, eh?) to help you easily transfer photos or files from tablet or phone to PC and back again. The product sports both micro-USB and USB 2.0 connectors, with the idea being that you could attach the UDUD to your phone or tablet, put a bunch of recently taken pictures on it (or files), and then unplug the drive on your way to a computer for enjoyment on a bigger screen or sharing.

For the industry as a whole, it’s unfortunate that Samsung has become the lone Android OEM to continue to include microSD card slots in its phones, especially when you see deals like today’s through Amazon Gold Box. But since so many of you actually own Samsung’s latest and greatest devices, you probably couldn’t care less about the competition. And with that, we present to you the most recent 60% off SanDisk flash storage sale.
In today’s listing (Amazon does these every couple of months, in case you were wondering), you can pick up SanDisk 32GB or 64GB Class 10, UHS-1 microSD cards for $19.99 and $41.99, respectively. Amazon claims that these are 71% and 58% discounts. If you don’t need another microSD card, you may want to look into a simple flash drive as well, especially if you get down with the OTG game. Today’s deal has the extra tiny and packable Cruzer Fit 16GB ($10.49) and 32GB ($18.49) flash drive, along with the standard size 32GB ($17.49) and 64GB ($31.99) Cruzer.
You’ll find regular SD cards as well.

With internal device storage being taken up by larger operating systems, bloated with tons of proprietary software, the need for a good SD card has really never been higher. Unless you are spending more cash to buy a device with higher storage, investing in an SD card is a good way to store your important pictures, videos and files, allowing you to take them wherever you go. This week, SanDisk announced another line of cards, the Extreme microSDHC UHS-I cards. The UHS stands for Ultra High Speed. (more…)
Samsung phones may be some of the last that can use microSD cards, but since it’s obvious that you are all buying them (Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, and Note 2) in constant waves, we thought we’d point out that Amazon is currently running a deal on expandable storage. You can pickup SanDisk Ultra 32GB and 64GB Class 10/UHS1 cards for up to 60% off. Class 10 and UHS1, in case you didn’t know, means you get “uninterrupted, Full HD video recording” on Android devices or tablets. But it also means that in between camera shots, you have less wait time. It’s a speed thing – something we appreciate.
Also, keep in mind that all of Samsung’s newest phones can use 64GB microSD cards.
Prime shipping is available with all of the cards on sale.

Class 10 microSD cards are something that should be on most of your lists of “must have” smartphone accessories. Well, assuming your phone can take them since many manufacturers have decided that the hot trend of the moment is to remove slots for them. But if your phone does have an SD slot for expandable storage, there is nothing like having a ultra-fast card for dropping media or ROMs on in seconds.
Amazon, today, has dropped SanDisk Class 10 32GB and 64GB microSD cards by 66% (23.99) and 53% ($46.99), respectively. If you already own one and need something else, like a regular SD card for your point and shoot camera, those have been dropped as well. In fact, the 64GB Class 10 regular SD card is 72% off. Not a bad deal.
Remember, that not all phones can support 64GB cards. The Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 are a couple that do.
Amazon’s Gold Box Deal today, includes a number of SanDisk products, most notably their Class 10 32GB and 64GB microSD cards. For those of you with phones that have removable storage, upgrading to a speedier card is never a bad idea. You can nab the 32GB Class 10 card for $23 or the 64GB for $43.50. I just peaked around at a couple of sites, and these are actually solid prices. Staples wanted $129 for the 64GB card and NewEgg wanted $68.
They are also selling regular SD cards, compact flash memory cards, and some other goodies in case you have other memory needs.
For those of you who picked up a Galaxy S3 over the last couple of months, but has yet to grab a 64GB high-speed microSD card for it, you may want to cruise through Amazon’s Goldbox deals of the day. SanDisk and a variety of their storage solutions are featured, but to most of you, the highlights will be their microSD cards. You can pick up a 64GB Class 10 card for $49.99 or a 32GB Class 10 card for $23.99. Those, my friends, would be considered impressive deals.
If microSD cards aren’t your thing, and you have other backup needs, SanDisk has you covered. You can grab solid state hard drives or regular sized SD cards on the cheap as well.
