Deal: grab SanDisk's massive 200 GB microSD card at its lowest-ever price

Deal: grab SanDisk's massive 200 GB microSD card at its lowest-ever price
Even though many of today's smartphones offer plenty of on-board storage, having a little extra real estate is generally a good idea. SanDisk is a brand synonymous with high-quality, storage-focused solutions, and is by and large the go-to firm for a decent microSD card. The company launched its mammoth 200 GB card last year, with the $239 asking price considerably less than the initially suggested retail cost of $400. As tends to be the case with any and all forms of digital storage hardware, the price has dipped continuously since, and reached a mere $89 only a couple of weeks ago. Now, with a slew of big new handsets on the cusp of release, the 200-gig card can be had for just $79.95.

With Android Marshmallow having added Adaptive Storage support, a microSD can function as additional internal memory rather than as a separate entity. This is great news for users of larger apps and games, many of which cannot otherwise be moved onto microSD. With an extra 200 GB on board, users can enjoy considerably more breathing space, and for $79.95 over at Amazon, the SanDisk Ultra (SDSDQUAN-200G-G4A) is as cheap as it's been. 

There's no telling how long the deal will last for, so you may want to move quickly. With the recent announcement of devices like the Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 edge and the LG G5, the timing is very convenient, so hit up the source link if you're a heavy user seeking additional storage.

I thought the S7 didnt support Adaptive Storage? Samsung disabled that feature.

It doesn't. But you can still use a 200 GB microSD.

up to 128gb the rest is wasted.. Only the option is to use it as OTG then it will be OK

Do you know what the SDXC standard entails?

If it recognizes the 128gb card, it'll recognize the 200gb.

I have this 200GB card in my GS7 Edge, it recognizes the Full 200GB. Nothing wasted at all.

200gb is nice. But the card speed is horrible. These cards are what slow down phones. I have a fast 64gb Samsung pro +. Hopefully the S7 can actually take advantage of the speed. They need to make it so phone can support the UHSII standard.

Lexar 1000x 128gb microsd is all I will be putting in the S7. Nothing but the best!

Don't worry, it is like with SSD's. You buy one because you think the price can not drop further, and then there comes the next deal...

Anything that supports microSDXC should be able to support future microSD cards up to 2TB. The main reason phones' specs say "up to xGB" is because that's the maximum capacity available at the time they came out. Older phones like the Galaxy S4 that "supports up to 64GB" can use 128GB and 200GB cards no problem. And the latest ones like the G5 and S7 "supports up to 200GB". Can you guess why that is?

But there are 512 GB micro SD cards available since over 6 months ago. So why they didn't they that they support up to 500 GB?

I don't think those 512GB cards ever came out. It was a publicity stunt. I mean, some company no one's heard of says they have 512GB cards when the industry leader SanDisk doesn't even have 256GB? No chance.

I have a200gb Sandisk in my note 4 right now. They've supported up to 2TB cards since note 3 and lg g3... just cause your iphone doesn't support any doesn't mean the others don't... Already tried the 200gb in my s7 edge that showed up yesterday and it works as well. Still using my note 4 till my cases are delivered today from amazon. Them s7 edge will be in swing.
