At CES 2017, SanDisk has announced an all new 256GB MicroSD card specifically aimed at mobile devices. The new card supports Application Performance Class 1, or A1 for short, a new standard in the industry for storage cards. This new standard means that this card is fast enough to run applications directly from them, not just be a storage facility for photos and videos. The challenge with MicroSD cards in mobiles is that they are often too slow on the read/write to be able to run an application. This new card from SanDisk solves that, with a read speed of 95MB/sec and the ability to handle up to 1500 random read input-output access per second and 500 write input-output access per second. All this technical information simply says that this card is blazing fast and can run applications in real time with no problem.
Today’s Deal is on a wide range of SanDisk Ultra Class 10 MicroSD storage cards. These high speed and highly reliable cards are great from Android devices as well as other devices (like Go Pro’s) for your storage needs. Today there are a several that are on sale at Amazon starting at 32GB and going all the way up to 256GB of storage.
All of these cards are waterproof, shockproof, and magnet proof so they are going to stand the test of time.
It seems like every week there is a sale going on at Amazon on SanDisk MicroSD storage but the 200GB model is often left out of the loop. Not today. If you have been wanting to pick up the top-end card you can do it, today only, for $59.99 on Amazon. That’s a massive different from when the card was released last year at over $200 but more recently has been in the $80 range. Obviously, if you are planning to put this into your Android phone or tablet, make sure it can support this big of a card. Many devices, especially those over a year old, can’t do it so make sure before you make the purchase. If it is too big, you can still pick up a great deal on the 128GB card.
