SanDisk Announced It's 1TB Micro SD Card

Forums - General Discussion - SanDisk Announced It's 1TB Micro SD Card

I think people fail to realise the rate at which these cards fall in price at. For example you can get a sandisk 400gb micro sd card today for under $80 on amazon after originally launching at $250 not even 2 years later.

For fun, in 2002 the first 256MB sd card launched at the competitive price of $199.

I got a 400+ GB card for like $70. It's actually almost totally full but, as much as I hate swapping discs/cartridges etc these days, I think I can settle with just another 400GB card.

I look forward to developers finding new and exciting ways to bloat their software to squander the value of these advances.

Yes cause a MicroSD card that is more expensive (by a lot) than the console itself is totally reasonable? I wish. The solution to this, I've found in my own experience, is to stick with a 80-100 gb sd card, and simply uninstall games after I've beaten them since I've gone digital only. I have blazing fast internet, so if I want to replay a game I just redownload it quickly. This way, I still have all the essential ones that I play randomly or on the go, but avoid the high cost of these newer cards.

You can aim higher by now, I bought an 128GB SD card for my Switch 2 weeks ago for about 17$ (15€) and are generally available for under 20$ without having to search for long. 256GB still costs around 50$, but I'm sure prices will drop to about 30$ until summer/fall.

Anything bigger than that however still seems to expensive to me to be really worth it

Almost 1GiB/s, that's a lot... and certainly not necessary in the slightest in most cases. UHS I (up to 104MB/s)and II (up to 312MB/s) already cover the useful speeds, UHS III (up to 624MB/s) is already a luxury



I got a nice deal on Black Friday for a 400gb microSD, only $79.99. I might get this once I can find it for under $200.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

True. I got my card when the switch came out. Do you know if transferring save files and full games between cards is a pain? I have barely looked into it.

I had to redownload the games and savefiles (hint: if you want your saves from physical games to stay on the console, take out the SD card before playing and saving, otherwise they will land on the SD card unless it's full already) I wanted on this card as unlike on the Wii U you can't move the files around. Really sad because it was so easy on the Wii U, hope they'll bring it back some day.

Your save files are on the system's memory. You have to re-download games from the eShop. 

I upgraded from a 256gb card to a 400 something card and I had to spend days downloading!
