Sandisk has a new 128GB Class 10 SDXC card coming out shortly priced at $59.99, which is a pretty sweet deal all things considered. That comes out to 46 cents per gig, and is capable of recording about six and a half hours worth of 4K video.
I’m basing the timeframe on 4K video generally recording at about three minutes per gigabyte, but depending on your codecs, camera, etc that may be low or high. Raw recording of 4K you’ll get a whopping four and a half minutes at 128 gig according to this. So obviously there’s a nice range.
The card is not available yet, it’s up for pre-order at the moment, and it’s also not the largest Sandisk has out. It’s got the second best gig per dollar ratio though. The next step up is not really worth it.
Anyway, if you’re looking for something to free you from having to offload 4K video, and you’ve got a device capable of handling a 128 gig SDXC, you should be golden.
You can pre-order the 128GB Sandisk Class 10 SDXC now for $59.99 from Amazon, who is also handling the selling. I mention this because usually when an SDXC deal is too good to be true, the vendor is a third party and selling SDs that have been partitioned to think they’re larger than they are, and you won’t discover it until you fill the unit up.
Alternately if you’re not much into taking video, the storage afforded by 128gb is more than enough to store about 182 digital downloads of Hercules, starring Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson. If you’re into that sort of thing.
Oh yeah, having a baby in a couple of days so if I’m not around it’s probably that. Not that I’m trying to fill up a SD card with The Rock’s movies.
