    Do yourself a favor and stick with a SanDisk branded card. Off-brand MICRO SD cards have a (relatively) high failure rate, whereas SanDisk has been pretty reliable for me.

    I'll stick with my 64 gig. I don't need to load up 10,000 mp3's and 500 movies on my phone. I stream all that crap off my home cloud or iheartradio.

    My mistake. I was rushing to post it up, for those that were trying to upgrade to the 64, but hadn't yet. It's $39.99 and I should have been more clear that it's Best Buy's deal of the day:
    Deal of the Day

    I just bought a WD My Cloud for my house. It's nice as they have an app also. Can stream from anywhere all my mp3's from the box located in my basement. Bought the 3 TB version. Can auto upload any picture I take instantly so I know it's backed up.

    And with DNLA, it lets me stream movies I downloaded to my cable box and my home computer. Really worth the money.

    I just pounced on the Amazon deal. $120 for 128GB is a deal any day of the week. Even if I have to wait a couple of weeks for restock, that'll double my card capacity and Heaven knows I need that!

    With the super clunky Note3 <-> Mac interface I'm just wondering how I'm going to get my stuff from my almost full 64Gb Micro SD to the 128Gb Micro SD I'm getting soonest. :(

    Anybody seen a European supplier of 128Gb Micro SD cards BTW?

    Lowest I can see the microSD cards going would be similar to the USB stick I have that's 128gb ($49 on special deal). I'd love to see it go that low, but not sure how long that would take.

    I'll settle for it dropping to $75 or even $80. I was tempted with Amazon's price, but still would prefer it being sub-100.

    the cost to make a 16gb card .. and a 128gb card .. should be pretty even...give or take a few pennies. the only thing is R&D spread over time.

    like the beginning of the 16GB card.. it started high and dropped in price as R&D cost got repaid. and now you can get it for $12-15.

    same will happen to the 128GB card.. not a matter if it will drop below $50.. just a matter of when

    I remember a time when 8 gig micro sd cards were considered large. 128? That's amazing. I'm guessing that as phones become more powerful so will the size of micro sd cards. Terabyte sized micro sd cards will likely become a reality in 5 years

    I remember building pc clones.. with 256kb of RAM... dreaming of 1mb!!!!

    1mb chip was $100 for my windows computer.

    270mb harddrive was $250

    today you can find 4GB flash drive in the bargain bins for $9

    When I try to load the PNY website from my Note 3, it says there's a plugin not loaded.

    I don't think so. The "tools" & procedures needed to manufacture the smaller line-widths are significantly different.

    If you had compared 16GB to 8GB I wouldn't have responded, as cost of: a) space b) materials c) tools & d) manpower for these differing products are much the same.

    but who am i?

    Ive never filled up a 16gb phone, this Note 3 is 32. Not sure that I would ever need 128gb, other than to say "look at me, ive got 128gb storage space on my phone". The SSD drive in my laptop has less storage space.

    Look at me I have my 64+32 Gb on my Note 3 maybe 90% full and I have to remove stuff and the 1Tb on my laptop (just increased from 750Gb) about 80% full with maybe 40Tb of hard drives around the place.
