I'm looking to purchase a 128GB micro SD so it's here when my Galaxy S7 arrives.


Can anyone point me to a good priced, well spec'ed card to purchase? Asking because I haven't kept pace with classes, write speeds etc of what's on the market.


Thanks in advance.

I'd go with the Samsung Evo+ or Pro+ series, personally.

Windows 7 x64 // i5-3570K // 16GB DDR3-1600 // GTX660Ti 2GB // Samsung 830 120GB SSD // OCZ Agility4 120GB SSD // Samsung U28D590D @ 3840x2160 & Asus PB278Q @ 2560x1440

Me too.

Definitely wouldn't buy it in NZ though, they were far too expensive last I looked. Amazon was where I got my 64GB one.

I have had one counterfeit card from Amazon (Amazon supplied too). Didn't find out till it was way too late to claim. So now I test every card I buy as soon as I receive it.

However, even having to take the hit on a counterfeit card, I was still about $30 better off than if I'd purchased in NZ.

not sure whether it is the best value however from amazon i got for myself one of this for my Sony NW-ZX2  - PNY 128GB High Speed MicroSDXC Memory Card


I got it when it was on special @US$29.99 and shipping to NZ is only $US5.06


I see currently it is selling for US$34.99 + US$5.06 shipping still not bad
