A hot price for a high speed, high quality 128 GB card. It just got £10 cheaper!

As a fast card, this would work well with Android Marshamallow's new "adoptable storage" feature, which will let you use the microSD as internal storage, e.g.:
pocket-lint.com/new…low

Here's the price history from camelcamelcamel showing the £10 drop in price and that it's the cheapest it's been:

This has been £29.99 at Argos for quite some time. So actually nothing new.

Also, there are four cards available for less via Amazon Warehouse (customer returns, click 'new' to access them). They are £25.75, £27.16 (x2) and £28.65. At a £4.24 saving, I'd say it's worth a punt. It's probably just been repackaged and you can return it if any issue.

Thanks BM12. Whilst it's free to collect from Argos, delivery is £3.95, so some people may prefer Amazon, more so when Prime users can get £1 credit for no-rush delivery. I've included the Argos info in the OP.

Fair comment. I guess if like me you need it right now (for my new S7 edge) then you can buy it right now from Argos. If you don't have access to a store and need it delivered then Amazon is a better deal with free delivery.
If anyone has prime now you can get it delivered same day for this price
Integral cheaper at my memory very respected brand
Could someone post some Crystaldisk Diskmark here please?

"Better for Android smartphone and tablet users

Please post some benchmark here , Crystal diskmark and/or Flashbench?
if using it in surface pro, would it be faster than same size storage usb 3.0 drive?
I have 5 of these from the first at 30MB/Sec to this latest one, they have all performed perfectly, in my Note 3, Tab S, Venue Pro and Fiio X5ii.

I purchased the 200GB version during the Black Friday deals.

The first one cost me over £85.00 so this is a really good deal.

With the S7 / Edge, I'd only want media on the external flash, the internal NAND storage which is UFS 2.0, I'd want to keep free for applications as the internal NAND is much faster in all areas than any micro SD card, significantly faster.
Why is it U1 when it has a rate of "up to" 80MB/s? I think the marketing is a bit over enthusiastic.
Works great with firetv2

Good USB 3.0 pen drives will usually have a faster write speed.

If you need them small in size then this is a good drive, it is faster than the Micro SD card but not the fastest USB.

Do you own one?

Are they reliable?

I tend to stick with Sandisk as they are usually the first to develop the technology and so far every card has performed perfectly for me.

But l am not against saving money.
this was cheaper via bespoke/flubit before. and at argos too.

The point is, it's not the "cheapest ever" which is misleading.

And you can probably get it cheaper via Flubit now.

Trusting Sandisk with 128gb of your data is irresponsible. Never had a card that hasn't failed, terrible brand.
got an instant 4% discount from flubit instant offer for 29.09.

As you said it is marketing ploy.

Many manufacturers proudly show off their read speeds but never advertise their write speeds which usually are very poor.

Sandisk is notorious for this, they are reliable but not always the fastest.

I have the opposite experience, I have never had one fail.

Yep thats exactly what i'd be doing. Its only to store my archive of photos and music. At the moment I have a S6 with 64GB and I've been struggling with c. 550mb of free space for the past month lol. Apps will always be running on system memory.
Just for awareness I bought one of these from Amazon (sold and dispatched by Amazon), and my NVIDIA Sheild TV box informed me that my card was slow!! When looking at the card in a Laptop it was only 16MB in size. Obviously counterfeit, but these fake cards are finding their way in to the genuine supply chain... not just from unscrupulous eBay sellers. Check your card when it arrives, no matter where you bought it from.

I actually bought this and have reviewed the card on Amazon for the 128GB card ( it's the one at the top with a video). I haven't had any problems with SanDisk in past. This card is excellent and in the video on the site (Spoiler Alert!), I access documents, mp3s, videos, ebooks and comics and its loads up fast. Total upload time was about 52 minutes for around 80 gigs. but downloading everything was about 3 hours and 50 minutes.

Some files were transferred faster than others. But on average, I found uploading I'd get sustained speeds of around 25mbps but downloading varied immensely. This depends upon how you're connecting to the card and types of files etc. As mentioned in the video, its pretty infrequent that the average person uploads 80 gigs onto their card.

For everyday use and access. I'd recommend it and actually bought another one because of the price drop.

I fully agree with you and at this price it is worth buying for spare.

I have one in the Tab S with movies, two in the Fiio holding Flac, one in my Venue as extra storage and one in my Note 3.

I intend on using the 200GB card in my XPS 9550 if I can find a suitable reduced size adaptor.

Not sure if this helps, but it already comes with an SDcard adapter free, so should be able to slot into your XPS 9550 if it has an SD Card Reader on the side of your laptop.

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately, like the Macs the SD Slot is very shallow so the card sticks out which can lead to damage.

You can buy shortened adaptors that sit flush but they are designed for the Macs and are quite expensive.

I am not certain if they will fit in my XPS as they may be too short or long, so I am looking on forums to see if anyone has tested them yet.

Absolutely - unfortunately counterfeit cards are very common now, and even reputable retailers may get tricked. I wish I could recommend a manufacturer that has a serious anti-counterfeiting programme (serial numbers, holograms, free exchange, the whole lot), but I don't think anybody does.

The S6 is great hardware, let down by an atrocious OS which is Lollipop and Samsung have really dragged their heels getting Marshamallow out, so much so that only Vodafone has a version out in the UK so far. It's what I call p*ss poor customer service, due the very nature of Android it's flexibility it its weakness with regard to updates, it'll never get regular updates like IOS in the same manner across all devices, just not possible unless Google take control of updates but of course how can they, they don't control the individual manufacturer custom version of their OS.

I have the integral 128 installed on my edge. Works brilliantly but benchmarks are well off as I would suspect most are.
Read 50.77mbs
Write 18.2mbs
Fine for me as I only store music movies and photos on there.
Tested using A1 SD Bench app
