All SanDisk Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
Cheers, ill nip in at some point then
It was instore. Samsung 64gb memory card - they're probably lazy and left it labelled as 19.99, but rings through as 14.99
I can't find it, could you send me the link please
what did you write ?
"VC5" is the new code for 5% off
None of these card's are recommended for Dash Cam's ... But saying that, some have used these for such purposes, and found it worked perfectly well either way. :-) So what can I say?.
good deal thanks, but BFFC code no longer working
It's not on their official list, but I've used one in a Hero 5 without any problems. https://gopro.com/help/articles/Block/microSD-Card-Considerations
Thanks mate :-) just bought it.
‘Don’t look back’ being absolutely key. If you keep checking prices too much you will never go ahead - been there, done that. Choose what you want in your price range and go for it. If you haven’t found your ideal build yet - use something like PC Part Picker - it’s a good place to start to find the best prices for the gear from different sources - https://uk.pcpartpicker.com
I suppose it depends how patient you are/can be. There's always going to be a better price round the corner. Regardless, no matter when you buy I'm sure you won't be disappointed. If you spot a good deal that fits your budget I'd say just grab it and don't look back :)
Ok thanks. I'm looking to buy my first build and looking around 1070 level do you think there is much point in waiting for price drops or shall I just bite the bullet on the next 1070 deal?
At the moment around £350 for a 1070, £430 for a 1070 Ti and don't bother with the 1080 as prices are ridiculous for practically 1070 Ti levels of performance.
Basically.... Earlier last year the Samsung had some sort of power outage in their main production plant which make the memory chips used in a lot of things that knocked their global production rate down by 3.5% -- Some industry insiders predicted there would be a serious shortage as almost every electrical device needs what these factories make in one way or another and a lot of product that was being made were allocated to big companies like Apple, Sony, Huawei --- every big mobile phone, laptop or tablet manufacturer first before the excess being spread to other manufacturers to make things like SSDs. Samsung decided to open up another 2 or 3 factories in China to cope with the drop in production but in doing so, they ended up flooding the market. I know Sandisk make their own NAND chips for their SSDs but they could be price matching their competitors to gain sales. Prices should be cheaper until samsung decides to slow production to regulate the prices...
my receipt says VAT £0.00 ? I was just curious if they were doing some sort of tax scam or they're grey imports or something. It had an address of Netherlands on it so I wondered if it's being shipped from outside the EU as my company imports things from China that come into NL and get posted on this way.
It's an American, or British Store ... I believe that VAT has already been 'applied' to the total price, etc? (and from that we then get our £8.99).
How come they don't charge VAT? AFAIK there is VAT on memory cards ....
This is perfect for a raspberry pi!
Apps run on random input-output of data. Standard Class 10 card only gets around 0.5mb write and 5mb read per second, really not ideal for running apps. A1 Standard should at least achieve 4 times that, especially on the write side of things. Personally after trying out a UHS-1 card to run apps on my partners Android I wouldnt recommend it, took forever for some apps to load, and some even just crashed. Gave the A1 class card a go and it runs apps almost as quick as the internal flash memory does.
Anybody know what is the fastest (read, write, both etc) SD card? I never got to grips with how to work it out, classes, U1 or U3 etc. Or which are meant for continuous use? e.g. the way WD purple drives are optimised for surveillance, red for NAS etc. Obviously the proof is in the pudding (i.e. benchmarks) but as a rule of thumb? I've never found an SD card that is faster than a USB 3.0 memory stick - is there one?
Not bad price but Toshiba U3 card is £14.99 at Base
No it is USB 3.0 speed, the obvious difference from a regular USB 3.0 flash drive is you can plug it into your phone. If you don't need it to plug into a phone then it is probably better/cheaper to get a regular USB 3.0 drive.
Is it full usb c Speed ? Otherwise no difference from usb 3.0
Slow speed not worth the bother
A cheapee alternative: Toshiba 64GB TransMemory USB 3.0 Flash Drive at BT Shop for £10.50 (with the free delivery option)
Yeah, same here in the past. If it's a DotD/Lightning offer, at least it tells you how many minutes (with a countdown clock) remaining you have to buy it before it increases in price or the offer expires. I'd recommend using something like CCC to tell you as soon as it decreases in price again (has worked great for me on many deals in the past) - https://uk.camelcamelcamel.com/. When CCC sends you the change (via email), you can't hang about again, as you might miss it!
Annoyingly, I had this in my basket and waiting for something else I needed to buy to push it over the £20. Went to buy extra item and noticed the price had gone up. I'll wait until it goes on offer again.
Think amazon have caught on it was popular and put the price up slightly
It says that you will save 16p on the rrp.... at £17.49? Deal or no deal? Hmmmm......
Was £14.99 recently at Amazon £16.99 delivered at Base now...
Tuesday, 10 April Parcel has been handed over to the carrier and is in transit Times are shown in the local time zone. Get in there. (highfive) Thanks mate. (y) If you hadn't posted the link up top, I'd have missed this. I suspect a number of folks missed it by not clicking on the deal because it was showing as OOS at one point, apparently, but when I clicked to check it out I was lucky enough to hit the re-opened deal window at the crazy low price.
Thanks for the heads up on the post but I don't know if I'm going to get it. The OP has said his is dispatched, mine is just showing as ordered and arriving tomorrow. (annoyed)
Still a hot deal, the Crucial drive earlier today (of which eBuyer cancelled all the orders but hopefully Amazon won't) was clearly an error. This is cheap for this drive.
Good stuff mate!
Good spot, thanks. (highfive) Just grabbed one.
Haha! Lovely bed, more just the style of the photo that got my imagination working overtime!
Not a crime scene, just my bed (lol)
Seen these in my local Tesco today. One was this price but then right next to it there was the exact same for about £11 or £12. Exact same speed.
If you will look close you will find same for 10.5.... picked up one today at Tesco.
Same at Chesterfield, although the A1 version is a few pence more on Amazon - not sure what the difference is though, although from memory I think it offers better performance for apps (presumably if you’re using it for adoptable storage)
It’s ok as a backup tool, if you have an iPhone use it to free up more space on the device. You can use it to stream stuff too to the iPhone like music and video files and play via the Sandisk app but it’s a bit fiddly to setup I found it kept swapping back to my main homes Wi-Fi, all the time instead of the usb sticks Wi-Fi and so it drove me bonkers, only way to stop it was to ‘Forget’ my home networks settings then it would stay on. Then reconnect after you have finished backing up or streaming a bit of guns n roses! (embarrassed)
Lol. I've ALWAYS wondered about those Wireless USB Flash Drive things ... Interesting that?. So, it's more 'gimmicky' then, then of any 'real-World' practical use I take it?, or ...
THanks for posting. PIcked up a couple for friends who will make use of them.
I was using the term Typical in reference to the fact my local store here in NI never seems to have any deals as good as the one posted and when they do have one the night staff tend to snap them up. Very good price if you can beat the staff to it.
Only plays DRM free videos in certain formats so I don’t think it will. Here’s a link to show you what it can play https://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/18913/~/playing-videos-with-the-ixpand-drive-app
Thanks, wish I could borrow my friends teleporter to get these deals.... (flirt)
There is two left in Lockerbie.
Just bought one in Tesco North Shields. Great price. One left when I was there.
I desperately need one of these but alas, my local doesn't even sell anything over 64fb in Belfast... Sigh
Major bargain as I saw as they were £33 in the Edinburgh store! Happy with my 2 slower ones.
Might JUST be the start of a new SSD price war. Fingers crossed and all that :)
I usually go for Samsung but this is a great price.
Yes, so long as you can attach both drives to the computer at the same time it should be able to clone it. There are various videos on YouTube that show SATA SSD to NVME done. The only issues I ever had with the Samsung Data Migration Software were that I had to turn off/uninstall the AntiVirus package for the cloning to be successful.
Can you use this software to copy from SSD to m.2?
Thanks mate just noticed this didn't know EBuyer was doing this cheaper. Deal has been amended. (y)
Thanks for sharing. Great deal.
128gb for 25 quid not bad... speed isnt crazy high but its 3.0 not bad and 128gb is a lot of space... decent deal
Brilliant gadget, I've got 3 of these for the kids films (saves messing around with dvds). They're stable, quite speedy for file transfers, and don't look too bad either, lol
lucky to get one of these for £8.50 from Tesco, on a misprice, last week.. Works welll... woul dhave preferred 128Gb, though 64Gb sufficient. For £15, good price.
Used Base before for Toshiba micro SD cards and they were genuine enough.
Bought one of these for £17 on sale at Wilkinson at Christmas so this a cracker! Heat
Good price but I never used them so I don't know if it would be genuine?
Don't tell that to the politically minded for goodness sake.
I didn't even vote. (lol)
No-one will notice because the cold voting hurd are moving through.
As long as you don't intend wearing them as earrings, no-one will notice..
These get scratched very easily.
Just what we need, another Class rating written on an SD card. And they wonder why people are put off by technology
Not all people need a 1080p TV but most will choose it over a 720p one.
Thanks 6ixFoot1, I'll give this some thought. Look's a good price. I have a USB 3.0 Type A port so I think this would be compatible.
I'm no expert but this just popped up in my email - https://www.mymemory.co.uk/sandisk-128gb-ultra-fit-usb-3-1-flash-drive.html?utm_source=MyMemory+Newsletter&utm_campaign=b2fcf34f6b-SanDisk+128GB+Ultra+Fit+USB+3.1+Flash+Drive+-+A%2FB&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_135199ec50-b2fcf34f6b-67573833&mc_cid=b2fcf34f6b&mc_eid=e665763c33 Maybe be better and faster although it will take up a USB port.
Hi, I'd be grateful if someone could advise me if this card would be suitable for a laptop I have just bought for my daughter who turned 11 today :D it's a Tesco Link 14" Ultra slim which for £200 is astonishing. It states that the memory can be ungraded with ether a Micro SDHC/XC up to 200gb or a M.2 2242 SSD. The laptop only has 32gb left in memory and we are planning to buy Office 2016. She will use the laptop for storing photos, music, and as of late her own homemade pop video's. Any advice greatly appreciated.
Bought a 1GB drive for the same price in early 2005 and was the (pirate) @work.. Suspect that £59 is probably worth over £100 now. Will get this one just for old times sake. (excited) Voted hot :D
These are a great way to copy movies from PC and view on phone. Can't comment on transfer issues others have raised, but no problems with play back
Got 128gb one. When transferring files it starts at around 80mbs but within 5 seconds drops to around 35mbs. Very poor for usb 3. It's ok for say plugged in the TV but if you transfer lots of files regularly then forget about it. In comparison I got usb 3 2tb HDD from Currys and it transfers at 135mbs all the way through. I only moved 5gb file. It may drop with bigger sized files but seems very good to me.
Had a 64gb one and it broke quite easily, they’re tiny
at these capacities its probably better buying a ssd and chucking that into a housing
"As its an action cam model should also be high endurance." There's no such thing as an Extreme range high endurance card. As far as I'm aware they are separate product lines.
Yes thats what I thought! Maybe regional or certain stores but not usually a normal store or it never used to be when i worked there years ago.
Got the last one in MK - heat added, thanks, but probably expired now if it's not nationwide.
none in London but appeared in their system as £89+. Strange as the yellow sticker is usually national
