My missus bought a Vigo 7" Tablet from The Warehouse a couple of years back.
It's now pretty much full and we'd like to increase its capacity but can find no info on where to get a micro sd for the tablet.

Anyone know of anywhere in the Auckland area that stocks these?


Thanks in advance.

unless those bricks and mortar retail stores have a sale on you will get it significantly cheaper online. Checkout pricespy and you'll see how much. I've bought from Elive and Smartdroid for microSD cards in the past so can recommend them as a start.

I'm currently a fan of the sandisk extreme pro cards. Nice and fast.

You get what you pay for with SD cards and USB sticks. Pay little, get slow.

I've gotten them on Amazon before, heaps cheaper if you don't mind the wait, most things take about 2.5weeks for me.

I got a 64GB Class 10 UHS-1 (Probably overkill for a warehouse tablet haha) for about $30NZD on sale, the same card I have seen here retailing for over $90NZD.

I also got a Class 10 16GB card for less than $10USD and it was a reputable brand too.

Amazon also have top notch customer service, so I always recommend them to people.

As mentioned, just about anywhere. The Warehouse, Kmart, Noel Leeming, Dick Smith, Harvey Norman, JB Hifi, PBTech, Playtech, Computerlounge, Warehous Stationery, Mighty Ape, some supermarkets and most stationery stores, pretty much anywhere that sells anything electronic. There will be a big variation in costs, primarily based on brand and speed - the performance is more important if you're looking to record or stream HD video, but less so if you just want to install apps etc.

Do not get from Trade Me - you risk getting fake copies with low quality or lacking the advertised storage capacity. Either buy in stores, or online (Amazon ships to New Zealand and SanDisk have good prices there):
