Toshiba Exceria 64GB Micro SDXC U3 Card with Adapter £15.99 Base

Got a 32gb for 10ish off Amazon the other week. Works great on my Android phone compared to U1 cards. This is a great price!

Damn, went for the Lexar 64gb deal on Monday. Should've waited!

Thank you. Amazon price is £16.59 (plus delivery for orders under £20).

Would this be good for a Nintendo Switch?

Superb deal. Thanks

lol, I love how it gets heat for this and it is cold here: hotukdeals.com/dea…570

That's simple to explain.

A month or so ago, the price of SD Cards was generally a lot cheaper. I purchased a 32GB PNY card for £6.99, or could have got a 64GB card for £12.99 (both Class 10 U1). However, prices for SD Cards currently seem to be sky-rocketing and you can easily pay £15 - £20 for a 64GB Class 10 U1.

So a 64GB U3 card for £15.99 at today's prices seems like quite a good deal to me.

Hope that explains

What is the read write speed spec for this card?

What is the read write speed spec for this card?



​Answering my own, 90 mbs

Decent price, heat added and not long ordered it - been looking at a 32GB Micro, so this is even better!

Does anyone know the IOPS performance for this card? Does it exceed the new "App Class" performance standard for SD cards to be used as android "adaptable storage", or is it best used as extra space to read and write media files?
App Class standards are a minimum of
Read speed:1500 IOPS
Write speeds: 500 IOPS
Sustained transfer rate: 10MB/s

Sequential write speed are about 30MB/s. The 90 MB/s you quote for read speeds are only a theoretical maximum - the real world, read speeds will be slower but that doesn't really matter as read speeds are rarely a bottleneck.

I do appreciate some people may have difficultly understanding long words (or even short words, for that matter).

Perhaps a simple picture would make it easier for you to understand? Here goes, and if you need any further explanation of the facts, don't hesitate to ask.

Bought and heat added. This should do the job for my GoPro for my holiday on October!

I use one in mine, all I can say is that it works, can't really say how well it works for larger digital games, but I've downloaded the Snipperclips demo and works fine.

Would these work ok for raspberry pi 3 retropie attract mode image?

I have one and its the quickest sd card I've had - 31mb/s av.

Very simple. Blame brexit, blame the weakening of pounds against other currencies in Asia where the HDD are manufactured and imported to the UK.

Two years ago I could get 5TB HDD for £100. The price even reached as low as £89.

Your graphics is ranging for over a year. Te value of Pound is not much changing last month and this month.

If the price is high now, just wait it will go down again when they are doing a promotional offer.

Simple. Some people here are voting without doing their own research.

It is widely known that the temperature here on HUKD is sometimes pointless.

This is decent price not a bargain. Pople who could wait, just play a waiting game, you will get it cheaper at some point in the near future when they do promotional offer, or lightning deal with Amazon.

when I inserted into my moto g4, I did get a message saying the memory card inserted is slow. im using it for adaptable storage and its miles faster than a U1 class 10. my apps would hang when loading from sd but on this card they load up after a second or two. no hanginbg or crashes.

All prices for memory cards or usb drives gone up in recent months(and still going up) if you didn't notice, some more examples of very popular items:

Does anyone know if this would be suitable for a DJI Mavic Pro? Appreciate any advice.

​Be careful what sd card you buy. From what I've read some of the 64gb images do not fit on a 64gb memory card. You can use berryboot to boot to an image on an external hard drive. Unfortunately though I only have the original pi where the USB drives don't carry enough power for an external hard drive.

Of course the price for new product will be going up to keep up with inflation.
But the old drive, price / TB will keep going south. Unless someone could prove that Moore's law is incorrect.

Having said I am aware that the price of HDD is £20/TB is quite stable in the last two years and has not moved yet. But It does not mean it will not in the future. Otherwise Moore's law is incorrect ...

I bought Hitachi 55 Inch 4K Ultra HD FVHD Smart TV last for £360 from Argos.
Now the same TV are sold for £500.
http://www.argos.co.uk/product/5482386

Is the price going up ? No
Why? Because at the time I bought it they are on sale, on promotional offer not because the price is going up.

In general it is highly unlikely the price of items such as HDD, Smart HDTV us going up. Because the technology is changing fast and the new model, new technology (for TV), higher capacity (for HDD) are coming to the market

Nice. Is this a good way to increase the capacity of my kettle?

You just keep saying same things without even checking camelcamel price history for memory cards... You could buy 64mb micro sd card for £10-12 last year, now you have to pay at least £15-16 in promo.I have posted hundreds of deals for memory cards and usb sticks here in recent years, so I know what I'm talking about

Have you ever heard about the Moore's law ?? When talking about the law camel camel how many post on HUKD are irrelevant.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moore%27s_law

If the price of HDD/TB or Micro SD/MB is higher now it does not mean it is not going down sometimes in the future if the new SD, higher capacity faster is coming to the market.

Also when they are doing special offer, flash sale, boxing day sale, black Friday etc. The price will be cheaper for sure.

Looks like you have some kind of obsession with Moore's law but cannot see reality when talking about memory cards trying to be blind at every example provided... sad.
Yes, in case of some special offer or flash sale price might be lower but not even close to last years level
Even old models like Samsung Evo U1 card costs much more than before...

So rather than it being "utter tosh" you're agreeing with us - prices have went up recently and as everyone else knows - myself included - its because of the weak pound predominantly related to the Brexit vote.

The reality is though, its a decent enough deal that deserves its HOT status. The item may have been cheaper (under different economic conditions) in the past, and it may well be cheaper in future (consumer electronics generally get cheaper over time) but right now its a pretty good deal. I ordered one. I've it in my laptop now. I needed it now, and this seems the best price at the moment. A month from now and 50p cheaper is no good to me.
