Thanks for that. I'm looking for a UHS-3 128GB and I see they have the Samsung EVO in that spec.


Had to laugh at their "bundle"... buy 2 for twice the price! Hmmm

If you want a laugh, get Warehouse Stationery to match the price in accordance with their price promise.  I did this recently using the PBTech price for a Sandisk extreme.  At first, WSL dobbed me off with the Sandisk Ultra, and I wasn't confident enough to insist on the real item.  On returning the next day and demanding the Extreme, with the PBTech price, they were very unhappy doing a price match.  I couldn't be bothered insisting on the further 5% off they promise on their website, I think the manager would have thrown me out

While that does sound like it might spice up the monotony of physical retail shopping, it is quite hard to pick between holding them to a clearly stated price guarantee and Noel Leeming's insistence on personal information they're not actually entitled to. If I pick the latter, I must remember to say "My phone number and address? Sorry, I'm not actually looking for a personal relationship, thanks. Just a MicroSD card and receipt for today. Cheers."


Edit: It appears they don't have anything over 64GB at Warehouse Stationery anyway, so they're potentially safe from my dogged insistence, although I may pop in to confirm just in case they're getting cunning and removing from their website items that may cause them to have to honour the agreement. Stranger things have happened...
