Deal: Silicon Power's 128 GB microSD card is now just $35

Deal: Silicon Power's 128 GB microSD card is now just $35
With a torrent of new smartphones having either been released or en route to market following CES and MWC, accessory and peripheral makers have kept their part of the bargain with some red-hot deals. A short while ago, for example, SanDisk's 200 GB microSD card dropped down to its lowest-ever price. If you're not looking for quite an extravagant amount of space, though, then Silicon Power's 128-gig effort can now be snapped up for a very reasonable $35. 

While Samsung ditched the microSD expansion slot with last year's flagship duo, the much loved feature is back by popular demand with the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Though Sammy's two new humdingers don't support it, Google has made some changes with Android Marshmallow that can greatly increase the usefulness of a microSD card. Known as Adoptable Storage, the feature allows a microSD to masquerade as internal storage, which is great news for those looking to install large apps, games and media. 

Presumably, then, more folk will be looking to snag a new microSD card, and while the aforementioned SanDisk offer was very tempting, Silicon Power's deal of 128 GB for 35 bucks carries similar allure. 

There are plenty of cheap SD cards floating around the Interwebs at rock-bottom prices. But as we've discussed before, the market for fakes is currently thriving. Silicon Power -- though perhaps not as renowned as SanDisk -- is a reputable outfit known for quality products. The firm's 128 GB Class 10 MicroSDXC ticks all the boxes of a high-performer with 75 MB/s read transfer speed, and arrives with an adapter should you wish to utilize that real estate for, say, a DSLR camera. 

A $20 saving on the list price, this is a near must-buy for anyone seeking more mobile storage. Those interested in snapping up what is likely to be a limited-time offer can find the details at the source.

Amazon doesn't charge sales tax unless you live in certain states like California. Maybe Amazon will have a Clue sale next time.

I live in Texas and they do charge taxes, it's mostly on electronics and new items.

14. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered Poor sap... still trying but never succeeding. Besides if Amazon US wouldn't collect sales tax, the difference would be explained even better, which was my point to begin with..

28. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Which is why I said "certain US states." Oh I'm sorry, I forgot you are without a clue.

30. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

My point was that the difference in price was because of the difference in taxes, no taxes at all makes the difference even bigger. Making my point even clearer. But keep trying and perhaps next time that joke will be funny after 100 times. I know you are very fond of that joke, since it's your only one :)

They only charge sales tax if its being shipped from a facility from within your own state. They cannot tax goods being shipped from out of state because only the federal government has the power to regulate interstate commerce.

Cheap 128gb cards aren't fast enough. They will slow down your phone.

Yeah, Apple are so nice and thoughtful to not give you an option of SD-cards in order to not slow down your phone if you buy a non-Apple approved with 1000% margins.

So in your own little brain there is either android or apple, right? I ne specifically said apple, retard.

Jussaying, but their price is clearly in USD ($) not GBP (£) now from what I've seen they're a US based website and you have to realise prices aren't going to be the same everywhere. What makes you assume PA is going to be concerned with Amazon prices from a country that doesn't even have 65 million people?

What does that have to do with the article? Exactly and no I didn't waste my time clicking on your unrelated links.

The 128gb card I got from pny is giving me problems. It seems to keep disconnecting when my tablet goes to sleep causing my tablet to get warm. It seems like my tablet is finding it then not finding it... Or its searching for different files when the card is disconnecting and reconnecting...

Yeah. I hard reformatted it but it still acted funny. I put in a return claim with Amazon and they're sending me a new one. Hopefully it's just a bad card

Problem with microSD card is there are as many fake as the genuine. You really need to buy from reliable sources. Avoid eBay.

If you look hard enough Samsung and SanDisk SD cards aren't completely flaw proof either. Small companies should get a fair shake at the market too. I got this 128GB when it was $32.99 and have had no problems sonce putting it in my S7.
