That's an awful lot of data and money on one tiny bit of plastic! Personally, I think its safer to have more card of smaller capacity - obviously cheaper too.

Not keeping all your eggs in one basket is a sound principle, as is …Not keeping all your eggs in one basket is a sound principle, as is avoiding paying the premium for being an earlier adopter of marginal improvements in technology. I respect anyone that disagrees, and your reasons are valid: but I don't respect trying to shut down civilised discussion, disagreement and differences of opinion.


Do you genuinely believe someone who is spending £170 on a memory card needs to be reminded that it's a lot of money and it's a lot of data on one card/device?! I certainly don't and I've yet to see anyone who 'appreciates' such advice every time it's posted here because it's blatantly obvious, the advice makes little sense these days as the 200GB alternative suggested is still a colossal amount of data to 'lose' whereas a few years back when cards were a couple of GB's, it was genuinely less data to lose. Well that's aside from the fact these devices don't 'lose' data which throws the whole argument out the window entirely.

In addition to that, it's rare for devices to have more than a single micro SD slot making changing smaller cards a necessity and you're putting the data at higher risk by changing them than the card itself is likely to fail. It's also increasingly a hassle on mobile devices which due to their sealed design meaning the sim card has to come out as well.

I'm not 'shutting down civilised discussion' (as amusing as such a dramatic comment is), someone pointing out that a £170 400GB is expensive and a lot of data is a pointless comment and the fact it had to be done every time on a deal like this is tiresome. Although you do lose points for not pointing out 'that's a lot of porn' which so far is missing from this deal, perhaps you should edit your comment to add that since it also seems to be needed for every high capacity deal.

I was pondering getting 400gb one from cex, but then thought I'll just buy another 200/56gb one
Thanks OP. Ordered

For something like a mobile phone, multiple cards are not much use and it doesn't need to be used for unique date, I use mine for music and video which can be redownloaded or copied again if the card fails. Furthermore when these cards fail, they usually revert to a read only mode which means data can be copied back off it.

I do wonder if a high capacity storage deal can ever be posted here without someone replying that it's too much data for a single device.

Hi John. I think you put a bit too much information into one post there. I think you'd be better off splitting posts into multiple smaller posts. That way you won't lose the whole comment if something goes wrong. This is the way I do it, so I think you should also do it the same way.

I confirm my 128GB SanDisk that recently failed still works as read only.

The point is that it doesn't matter whether you appreciate it or not, does it? When you type things like "I do wonder if a high capacity storage deal can ever be posted here without someone replying that it's too much data for a single device", you aren't saying "I disagree with you, but you have a valid point", you are saying "I don't even want to see your opinion expressed".

Now have a good afternoon and wrap up warm if you are going outside, its nippy out there.

I am one of those people that are an early adopter of new technology, however marginal it may be. Just because YOU don't think that it is a 'sound principle' does not make it so. If I have the disposable income to use on such things and I wish to, then I will.

No actually, I don't think you do respect anyone that disagrees.

I personally fail to see why anyone would need an sd card of that size and it has nothing to do with data loss, it just doesn't seem like a good value for money. You can use online streaming for all your music/videos (Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Spotify, Google Music etc.) and if you need it offline for travelling, then you might as well get yourself an OTG dongle with a powerbank and bring a portable hard drive There are also OTG card reading hubs available for multiple sd cards/flash drives. I genuine can't think of 400GB worth of data that you would need access to all the time?

Most newer games are around 50GB. If you record 4K videos on your camera, they can add up too.
Having a portable hard drive and dongle is fine but adds bulk.

In comparison think of 20 years ago when a 32MB card cost the same price... videogames only 1.4MB floppy disks and vga photos were only 50kb or so...

That`s about the most sensible comment concerning this whole debate.
Regardless of debate I think the price is very good considering...if you want a card with this capacity, you have the option to take advantage of this at a reasonable price. That is really all that matters ......nothing more......I am voting this Hot for that purpose alone .

Edited by: "kevann" 27th Feb
I have an ever growing collection of loseless high res music which will push me over my 200gb card before too long, so will probably get one of these when they drop below £100. Streaming isn't an option for me where I travel and I use the OTG slot for a Mojo external DAC, so one of these is the best way ahead. Funnily enough, everything is backed up on my desktop and laptop, so y'all can chill on the backing up chat!

Integral have already released a 512 gb card, so this isn't even the biggest capacity now. It might take 18 months, but reckon it might dip under £100 on Amazon by then; I picked up a couple of 200gb San Disk cards for about £45 each!

So by that logic there's never a reason to make bigger cards. So what's the threshold at which storage size in this format never needs to be exceeded? It seems that 400GB is too big and therefore what is the correct size an SD card should be? At what future point will the fixed storage size at this threshold become obsolete? I'm just trying to figure out how we work out what is too big, 400GB is too big now, but we could reason that 400GB in 10 years time won't be too big, it's still a large amount of data but the goal posts have been moved. So I propose there must be some scaling threshold and I'm wondering if you can define that for us? Also price is a major factor so what price ratio should we be looking at? Or is this just too big because it costs £160? If it cost £50 would it not be then too big or rather the storage size less relevant because it was cheaper?

I'm waiting for the comment it would fall off long before you watched all the porn on a 400gb sd.

This is cold from me as its already been this price months ago from amazon Spain

I never fill my cards but I have 2 200s and waiting for 256 to come down and then I'll upgrade

I agree that selling your old cards on and replacing them means less chance of breakdown

The sensible bite point for me is 60 - 70
And the same goes for an sdxc which I use as a mini nas in back of router.

well as the threads most frequent poster you'd certainly know


My comments are all brief though - that's because I'm not at all worked up.
Some comments are better than the deal, amazing people getting worked up by people’s opinions, “don’t eat yellow snow folks and be happy”
Cold..
No seriously, I'm really cold, the boiler stopped working

If you are happy to spend this much on the wee card (fair bit of storage though) then fair enough. Doesnt sound like deal of the year to me though, I won't be investing and I'm out.
I'm pretty sure that I still have 16MB (yes, "Megabyte") full-sized SD cards kicking around at home, and it only seems like yesterday that I was amazed that they could fit 32GB on a micro SD card... 400GB?!? That's astounding! If I had the money, I'd love to have a Galaxy S9+ with 256GB on board, and one of these beauties in it! I'd never have to worry about running out of space again!

It's a bit off-topic, but does anyone know why these cards (200GB + 400GB) don't follow the usual capacity progression? (8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512 etc.) I'm not a programmer or anything, it just seems odd that these break what seems to be the established convention...
