Sandisk unveils ultra-fast 128GB SDXC card

Sandisk unveils ultra-fast 128GB SDXC card
If you’re feeling like you need more and faster memory, SanDisk’s latest CES announcement might be just that. SanDisk’s new 128GB Extreme SDXC UHS-I card aims to make storage issues a thing of the past for most users. 

It’s crafted with the latest devices featuring burst-mode shooting cameras in mind, so it takes speed seriously - SanDisk actually says it’s the world’s fastest.

That UHS part of the name stands for Ultra High Speed class one and this translates into read and write speeds of up to 45MB per second.

With the boost in user created video and the current memory hungry 1080p video capturing cameras, that’s something you might well need even sooner than you think. It costs a pretty penny, though - the 128GB card retails for $399, while the 64GB version sells for $199.

I take so much footage of my children, so many pictures that I can fill 128GB very easily. I have lots, & lots of candid videos & photos. 128GB now with 1080p video recording & 1080p images is really not that much. I have a 1TB mass storage drive & I am about 70% full. Between my wife’s film/photos & my film/photos we were able to fill that much in a little over a year and a half. I have it in a fire/water proof safe in my home. I also have many other drives that I use. I am about to get a solid state drive when they become a little less expensive so that can be my new master drive, because of their reliability. I have thousands & thousands of pictures, music, games, videos, & just think about this.... my kids are only 3 & 1 years old. They have the rest of their lives still to go. There are lots & lots of people who are in my boat. So to answer your question lots of people would appreciate 128GB SD card, a lot more than you think!

I can see myself using this in my Canon EOS Rebel T2i after 10 years.

Once the price comes down I could definitely use one in my GoPro HD, or even my Cowon D2. It's a bit annoying having to swap out memory cards in the GoPro, especially during long sessions.
