Looks like Amazon have reduced the price of the Sandisk 256GB microSD card by £57.

According to camelcamelcamel it is the second lowest price for a while.

A good shout for mobile phones with SD cards

£112 is still a crazy price for 256gb, when you can get a 128gb version for ~£25.

Sorry, but cold - I can't imagine why anyone would want a £112 256gb Ultra card (consumer level, non pro speed, not particularly reliable, expensive etc)

Bonkers price.

Worth mentioning this price is only £2 more than the lowest it's been £109.99 around Christmas time [img]charts.camelcamelcamel.com/uk/…png?force=1&zero=0&w=725&h=440&desired=false&legend=1&ilt=1&tp=all&fo=0〈=en[/img]

cold from me to

The best thing is that a lot of people's phones will be a similar price haha.

Yea cold from me too, the premium is too high on these. Don't people cloud / remote storage these days?

I honestly don't understand how there's a market for £100+ 256gb microSD cards. MicroSD cards right at the bottom of the memory food chain in terms of performance and reliability. This is too slow for a pro photographer (who will want to use multiple faster and more reliable cards in any event) and for someone expanding an old tablet, you might as well buy a new one and a 128gb card for the cost of this....

This must be the cream of the crop manufacture. Pros buy these ones, but I can't see what's the difference, perhaps these are extremely reliable

A pro photog wouldn't touch this with a 100ft bargepole.

​No they don't, Ultra is too slow.

Agreed. Forgot about there uses for photography as well, but still the price doesn't reflect the product.

Hardly an intelligent post.
Memory cards have been priced like this for years. The highest capacity card is always 3-4 times the cost of the next highest capacity available. We'll exclude the outlier 200GB version as that would be an intellectually dishonest response.

Actually, it's a very intelligent post. Hits the nail on the perfectly - completely overpriced card made for a market that doesn't exist.

Clearly not obvious to you....you seem to need a blackboard and chalk.

Give it a year or so, these come down so quick once the next size comes out. You not remember how quick USB sticks came down.

SanDisk & more than £100??? What next Seagate? Better burn you money for heat.

That was over two months ago and has been closer to the £75 mark ever since.

Sandisk aren't that bad. Besides, they're owned by WD.

OP .. "Looks like Amazon have reduced the price of the Sandisk 256GB microSD card by £57."

Still toooooooo much :OUCH' ss far as I'm concerned?. :-(

Sorry, but I agree with Comment No. 2 above (& also here):

I understand that some people like to store their entire lives on their phone - such as every photo they've ever taken, every film on their PC and so much pirated music that if they sat and listened every day of the week they'd still be dead before a track repeated - but this sort of premium for an extra 56GB seems a bit silly.

That's one way of putting it ...

Should be sub 60£ for 256 now..

Eh? How does the market not exist?

Granted, there was no need for a 200gb version, they should have just gone straight to 256gb but there is still a market out there...

If people need the space, they will pay the premium. But the price per GB is pretty high: 64GB have been £10.99 (around 17p per GB), 128GB have been £24.99 (19.5p per GB) and 200GB have been £42.99 (21.5p). More recently, 64GB cards have been £14.99 (23.4p) and 200GB £69.99 (35p). This is 43.7p per GB.
