Deal: PNY's 128 GB Class 10 microSD card is going for just $29.99
The conveyor belt of shiny new smartphones is seemingly never-ending. Even with the Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 edge and LG G5 having been released over the past few weeks, the Huawei P9 will soon be here, followed closely by HTC's new flagship. Though most of these high-end devices ship with ample native storage, the miracle of the microSD slot means that often, a user can add more real estate relatively cheaply. If you're a digital hoarder and would sooner enable your habit than have to delete stuff, PNY's 128-gig microSD is available on Amazon for just $29.99. 

It's the cheapest we've seen so far for a microSD card of this capacity. The Class 10, UHS-1 SDXC card will afford your smartphone or tablet a lot more breathing space, though it does not ship with a full-size SD adapter for use with, say, a DLSR camera. 

The revised price represents a humongous $70 saving on the list price. There doesn't appear to be an expiry date or time on the deal, though these offers don't tend to stick around for too long. 

If you'd like to snag yourself a 128 GB microSD card on the cheap, you can navigate through to the Amazon page via the source.

I have a PNY 64GB card. It's legit. I have heard these things offer great r/w speeds compared to Samsung. I'm getting one of these asap

That doesn't mean the 128GB version is legit. In fact, if you took the time to read the reviews, they will tell you that the write speeds are about 2x slower than the 64gb version. The 128GB is U1 while the 64GB is U3.

So how is the quality control on PNY cards? Failure rate?

I understand how important it is class 10 the mark of the micro SD should not be a problem.

Every PNY card I had in the Past corrupted after a certain amount of time, I'll stick with Sandisk..... they've never failed on me.

I will stick with Sandisk genuine. I had one defective Kingston and one defective Samsung pro over my life time of constant reading and writing. None from Sandisk.

I will say I bought one of these a while back when they had a sale like this and I had to get it replaced due to the card constantly unmounting and mounting itself... I would cause my tablet to run warm and drain the battery. I did return it with Amazon which was pretty painless... They sent me another one out rather quickly and I sent the defective one back. The replacement worked fine but buyers beware... These cards do have a more frequent failure rate...

I love all of my HDMI cables and adapter from PNY, specially one that was stolen from my house that was a 10 ft cable with the thickness of a regular micro USB cable.... And to be honest I also have a couple of PNY micro SD cards that I bought about 4 years ago, but they were 32 GB and they still work great... but for current tech of such capacities I wouldn't trust so many space into them... that is why I bought the SanDisk Ultra 128Gb cards
