Deal: SanDisk's monstrous 200 GB microSD card is down to just $89
Having expandable storage is a great asset to mobile device owners. Rather than being forced to delete important photos, documents, music and other content, one can simply pop in a memory card and continue the hoarding bonanza. microSD is by far the most common form of storage media at present, and while these cards can be cheap to purchase, it always pays to be wary of the fakes. SanDisk is a name synonymous with quality and reverence in this field -- one that many gadget owners swear by. For a limited time, you can snag SanDisk's monstrous 200-gig microSD card off Amazon for just $89.95. 

With a list price of $250, the SanDisk Ultra 200 GB Micro SD has been sold at $160.04 for a while now. But for the time being, you can grab all of that real estate for less than 90 bucks delivered. It should be noted that many smartphones and tablets only allow for an additional 128 GB to be recognized, but the deal extends to smaller storage denominations of this particular microSD card. Thus, you can grab 128 GB for $44.95 (down from $105), and there are similarly large savings to be had on the 64, 32, 16 and 8 GB versions as well. 

Each comes with an SD adapter for use in cameras and other devices that utilize full-size SD cards. With a 10-year manufacturer warranty to boot, this is a pretty good chance to snag a quality microSD at a rock-bottom price.

The Samsung pro + cards are currently the fastest uhs1 cards out.

Gonna get me one. They went down fast. No one hardly was going to pay that ridiculous almost $300 price tag they were asking before. The cost of these should never exceed $1.00 per GB, because hard drives and even SSD's have come down to roughly that price and sometimes even less. Think I better get a couple, in case it goes back up to double this cost.

"It's not talk, but knowledge". Techie knows alot which you and I don't. Just like TyrionLanister and few others.

At least I have friends. What do you have? Oh wait, I thought sites like this were designed so we can talk about tech news. I talk about things I love. I love all tech no matter the brand, or even if I don't have any plans to buy it. Its something I like. You don't like you, you don't have to frikkin come here...right? You're such an @$$hole. Keep being one if it makes you happy.

It's amazing how technology advances. I got a 64 GB UHS-I(70 MB/s read, 20 MB/s write) for 60$ in early 2013 and I thought it was an amazing deal.

Yes it has. The first Terabyte drive I bought, I paid nearly $500 for and now you can get 3TB for less than $150 depending on brand. SDCARD's aren't as fast as an SSD, and other than size; I didnt see why SanDisk charged so much for this one. I mean technically they took a 200GB flash chip and made it small enough to fit in a microSD package. I am sure that takes some technology they already had and made better, but $300 was still a bit much. Especially since I could get a 128GB from Levar for $75. Nice to see the cost come down. It's feasible now.

They already planned it 5 years back they just don't go hurry

This is a no-win game for SD card makers. As this product is now just a commodity that competes on price, the only thing the OEM can do is offer more storage but the more storage they offer, the smaller the market that is interested in this much storage. But there is little else they can do that is different so they have to hope that there are at least a few hundred out there who want 200GB storage on a phone. For my needs, I can't see ever needing more than 64GB.

They just need to shift their focus from more storage to more speed. I can see an SD card with SSD grade speed getting a lot of traction.

Phones that shoot 4k video make big storage space crucial

16. TyrionLannister unregistered

Also 4K video requires fast buffer. Slow SD card makes 4k recording choppy and risk some data getting out of cache before getting written to SD. Disk write is a blocking system call. So if something else(background download or sync) is doing even a little disk write, the video recording is going to hell with a slow SD, or one with half-duplex link.

The point is that both speed and big space are needed. They must not shift focus to one, in expence of the other. Simple

19. TyrionLannister unregistered

Who's saying at expense of other. 128 or 200 GB microSD is enough for just about everyone. So now just make them fast instead of going 500 GB.

So film to internal, then move to external.

I don't know if sdcards will get up too SSD type speeds. The chip is just to small and has to be powered by such a small controller. An SSD basically has an unlimited amount of power to keep a high sustained speed in a laptop of similar. I would say, sdcards really need to go. Now that we have internal flash that has speed equal or better than SSD, they really need to simply make internal storage larger. We have the technology for 256GB of even 512GB of internal storage. All phones today should be at minimum 64GB, no matter the brand, but especially for a flagship device. Any OEm who sells a smartphone that can record in 4K and have 16GB of storage should be shot. It should be 64GB with a 128Gb option. Hwoever I woudl say that when a phone is costing as much as $800-$1000, 128Gb should be the minumum storage and maybe a 256GB option if there is no SDCARDS. I want to be able to carry my whole music and even my video library on me and ot stream cloud services. I dont listen to singles, I mostly listen to mixes that are 20-50MB files in size. if I can carry it on my device, I could pay for a cheaper data plan. Cloud services simply puts more money into someone else pocket and I rather have it in mine. I want to be rich, not make someone else rich.

Samsung's are around the same price and are UHS Speed Class 1 versus SanDisk's class 10. If I was getting a Samsung phone that has a SD card slot, I'd go with Samsung's version. Just watch out for the fakes (they occur with both brands).

I've never seen a 200gb Samsung microsdxc. And the SD advertised here is UHS-1.

True. 128GB is the most they're offering on Amazon. It's crazy, though, that a 64GB Micro SDXC Card is only $17.63 now. I remember buying a 512MB flash drive in college 10 years ago and it had to be upwards of $30 haha.

Not bad, up-to 90m/s read, 15m/s write, most sites just state the write speeds are lower to hide this.

very few devices can recognize 200 gig microsd

Any device that can use a 128GB sdcard will be able to use these. That list is beyond very few. Any device running Android 4.4.x or higher shouldn't have any issues with this card.
