Looks like a pretty good deal for a large sized SD card.

Sandisk Ultra 128GB Micro SD Card $119.40

This same card on Amazon with shipping to my Hamilton address was 85USD (~123NZD), so considering this is a NZ retailer this is pretty good for them to be cheaper than Amazon. I know in the past Amazon have been significantly cheaper for Micro SD cards, but not in this case!

Only 30 MB/s read speed. Hate to think what the write speed is on them.

My one I got when they were more expensive os just used as music storage so even with the slowness is ok for that but it was hopeless in the camera. Back to a 32 gig extreme pro card for nice quick writes when taking many pictures.

The Sandisk specs page indicates: 

 

     

  • Performance/speed: Up to 48MB/s read speed


Which is at least a bit better.

I have one of this. It is slow when taking pictures. It causes lag on Note 3. My old 32GB extreme pro is way faster.

There have been multiple versions sold by amazon of the card. I'm assuming that accounts for the differences.

They can have some pretty good deals on SDcards, e.g. a few weeks ago they had Strontium Nitro microSD 32GB 466x (70MB/s) for $17 and 64GB 566x (85MB/s) for $36.

because it wasn't clear, "they" meaning Noel Leeming
