For those who can afford it, this is a massive amount of storage for supported devices. That is something you will want to double check before plunking down several hundred dollars, as some devices have a cap on how much storage they support.
High resolution cameras and camcorders are obvious destinations for something like this. The same goes for smartphones.
“Capture more fast action and record more Full HD or 4K UHD video with your Android based smartphone, interchangeable-lens camera, drone or GoPro action camera,” SanDisk says. “The SanDisk Extreme microSD UHS-I Cards are built tough for extreme durability under challenging environmental conditions. Extreme speeds let you capture every detail of adventure and take the wait out of transferring your videos between devices. Expand your device’s memory and let you record 4K UHD video.”
Performance is somewhat of a question mark here. Previously, SanDisk said its 1TB Extreme microSD card would hit read speeds of up to 160MB/s and write speeds of up to 90MB/s. Indeed, that is also what the product listing on Amazon states. However, on SanDisk’s own product page, the read speed is only listed at 60MB/s. That is probably a typo, though it does appear more than once.
If paying $449.99 for a 1TB memory card does not sound appealing, there are better bang-for-buck options available. Namely, there is a SanDisk Ultra 400GB card that is on sale for $56.99 on Amazon, down from its regular $77.90 price. Here are some handy links for both cards…
Both the SanDisk Extreme 1TB and SanDisk Ultra 400GB come with an SD adapter, in case you need it.
