SanDisk Created a 400GB microSD Card

Steve Porter / September 5, 2017

Last Thursday, SanDisk released the highest-capacity microSD card in the history of microSD cards. The Ultra microSDXC UHS-I by SanDisk was unveiled at the 2017 IFA conference on August 31st offered 400GB of storage capacity, 144GB more available space than the next closest competitor on the market.

 

Not only does it offer superior storage, it provides top of the line performance with UHS Speed Class 1, A1 app performance, and a blazing 100MB read speed.

 

 

Like many things in life, quality comes at a price. As you’d might expect, SanDisk’s 400GB microSD card isn’t cheap, but it’s also not outrageously overpriced. With a full retail price of $249.99, it’s only $50 more than the company’s 256GB card which retails for $199.99. Talk about value!

 

As mobile devices become more powerful tools for users on the go, storage is inevitably going to become an issue for some. Especially  when camera lenses support higher resolutions, and 4K video recording becoming more popular, having ample storage space is becoming a necessity. At least we know SanDisk is up to the challenge.

 

The VP of product marketing at Western Digital, the company that owns SanDisk, Sven Rathjen, said that by focusing on achieving new milestones in technology, SanDisk enables customers to keep up with their mobile-centric lifestyles. This means that customers will continue to use storage solutions that they trust in and performs well.
