    That was the official introduction, it was leaked a few weeks ago,

    For someone who was once amazed at a 32MB flash drive, we've come more than just a long way, baby.

    They're very aware of Android, as seen in the press text from that Web link:

    "An Enhanced SanDisk Memory Zone App-smarter Ways to organize, optimize, and Backup Android

    A new version of the SanDisk Memory Zone app (available on the Google Play" store in beta) lets users easily view, access, and backup all of their files from their phone's

    memory in one convenient place. As a part of the SanDisk Memory Zone app, SanDisk is releasing OptiMem
    e, a new feature that allows Android users to enhance their

    phone's internal memory by automatically transferring some of their old photos and videos to their microSD card'. optiMem will continuously monitor the users mobile

    device memory levels, and inform them whenever the internal memory falls below a pre-defined threshold."

    I downloaded the app. I don't know about OptiMem, but for transferring files, not just multimedia, but many different types, I like it. It's a well-thought-out app and will make it a lot easier to make sure that when you brick the phone stone cold dead, there are pics and videos of the kids and.or grandkids still available.

    Stiil even for a software junkie like me, 128GB? I'd sure like to live long enough to fill that up. (And I'm sure we're going to see a whole trainload of adapters for 32GB and 64GB phones coming out of Shenzheng soon.)

    Nice! I've been waiting for a formal announcement. It's about time. That said, I don't intend on getting one until next year, as I'd imagine they'd over price it to start (I'm thinking $149-199), and then slowly drop the price as time goes on. How'll be more expensive than some phones.

    Indeed I bought the 16 GB Ultra SanDisk a few months ago and I don't know if it will ever be filled up. Maybe it would be good for something like longer length 4K videos, as one video I recorded amounted to 333 MB for 58 seconds of footage on the Note 3

    No thanks. I bought a SanDisk USB drive several years ago and discovered that it came with a "file manager" app that was basically SanDisk advertising. It was a rootkit and you could not remove it, even by reformatting the drive. Eventually SanDisk got so many complaints from customers that they put a web-based removal app on their website.

    Once I removed their crap the drive worked fine, but I'll never buy another SanDisk product again. I'll wait until their competition comes up with a 128 GB SD card.

    No problem and enjoy your new card whenever you decide to get one. Enjoying my SanDisk Ultra at the moment surprised it can handle recording 4K videos but realise the camera data rate on a Note 3 is nowhere near as high as a production studio 4K recorder

    I'm typically in the minority when it comes to this, but both my 64's in my note 3 and 8 are practically filled up. I have been itching for 128 for so long, so I can't wait till the cards are affordable.

    So, I believe the bigger question is will the Note 3 interface support the 64 GB option.

    The spec's as I read them right now indicate the unit is limited to 64 GB and may not even accept the 128 GB module.

    Just need to make sure before someone springs for a device that they may not be able to use.

    I think you kinda have to put an asterisk on that because even though it SAYS up to 64 GB, the fact of the matter is, there WASN'T ever anything bigger than that. So theoretically, you were only "limited" by default, and not necessarily because it doesn't ACCEPT higher capacity.

    I know the price point will drop on this, and no doubt Samsung and other chip manufacturers are close to perfecting their 128GB cards. Competition will drive the $200 price down fast... I can see it level out at half that.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one with a nearly full 64GB card! I want this, I need this, and I will own it on Black Friday in November. Right about the time I'm comfortable with my new Note 4's capabilities :D

    I'm with you on this but I'm thinking in a new Note 4...

    Just because it's somewhat relevant, Newegg has a 64gb UHS-1 MicroSD card for $29.99 when you use coupon code EMCPHHE37.

    My Note 3 will arrive tomorrow but I'm happy to report I already own a 64gb card that has gone unused for quite some time since I'm coming from a DNA.

    That is a class 1 card..
    Class 10 is recommended from my understanding..
  16. unccman

    unccman Well-Known Member

    Well, it's UHS-1 (Ultra High Speed) and it has the same write speed (10mb/s) and a faster read speed (40mb/s) than most Class 10 cards (normal is about 30, I believe).

    Good looking out, though!

    Good deal, man! I paid about $55 for mine roughly a year ago. This is the lowest price I've seen in a while. It's got good speeds and good reviews. I'd say go for it.

    I'll be keeping my eye out for sure. I can't recall when the 64's dropped from 100, but I want to say it was around 6 months from initial release, so I will be keeping my eyes open for sure.

    By the same account, there were a lot of devices that supposedly could only hold up to 32gb, ehn the 64gb cards released, but even the Motorola Droid was said to have no problems using the 64gb cards.

    Damn, I wish I had seen it earlier:

    Phandroid article:
    SanDisk 128GB microSD card annonced

    Amazon link: SanDisk Ultra 128 GB microSDXC UHS-I Card with Adapter (SDSDQUA-128G-G46A): Computers & Accessories

    Best Buy must have pulled it from the website because the link that the Phandroid article didn't show anything.

    That said, the card is much less than I expected, if the $119.99 price listed on Amazon is the actual retail price. I'll be keeping my eye out for special deals that'll drop it to the $60 range, which I'd pay in a heartbeat, as I have relatives that would have no problem buying the 64gb cards off me for super cheap.

    Card is "available" on Amazon again, for shipping within 2-3 weeks. I'm going to wait until the first price drop, but wanted to mention it for those that can't wait.
