1TB microSD Card is real!

Thu Jul 18, 2019 1:39 am

Well I thought they would not be out this year.

I have not looked for resellers or price and absolutely no plans for such a daft idea :roll:

And I note that it is the--problematic--A2 class...

Interesting. I have yet to find a use for more than a third of a 64GB card (still 40GB free), so may be a bit before that finds a use here.

Local online retailers seem to want about eighty cents per gigabyte for them.

In comparison, a standard 1TB HDD will set you back five cents per gigabyte, getting cheaper as you scale up with 4TB costing just 2.5 cents/gb!

Yup, even SSD is way cheaper. 1TB Samsung 860 EVO is $130, or 13 cents/GB, and there are cheaper brands of 1TB SSD that are less than $100 (<10¢/GB), compared to 43 cents/GB for the SanDisk 1TB micro SD card (all prices from Amazon). Even the 2TB Samsung 860 EVO SSD is about $150 less than the SanDisk 1TB uSD card.

They were only released recently (May 2019, I think), so they're pretty new.
My mind is like a browser. 27 tabs are open, 9 aren't responding,
lots of pop-ups...and where is that annoying music coming from?

Amazon is quoting me $428.94 for the Sandisk 1 TB.

maybe, if you really need it for the size. The same storage in USB3 SSD is 1/2 price and HDD at 1/10 the price.

I'm happy to accept 64GB should be enough for most people. Mind you I probably said that about 32GB, 16GB, 8GB, and 4GB as well.

It is mostly media which requires large amounts of storage. My digital audio collection exceeds 64GB and I would imagine other people's digital video collections are larger still. A few people will be holding multiple software sources or distributions which are similarly large.

A single SD Card which can hold 'everything' is useful, even if not currently cost effective, or the best way.

Yes, I have around 240GB of music (mostly flac).
Video takes much more.

If you have such a large video collection, its more efficient/cheap to spread it over *several* SD-cards.

And a better idea in general.
Should you lose one of the cards, you don't lose your entire collection.

I once got an overdraft to pay for 512kb of ram.. probably more storage in a disposable audio b'day card these days..

Know what you mean. Spent days arguing for a 10Mb hard drive to make compiles quicker...

In 2002 when I built my dual Opteron-240 system, the 2GB of ECC RAM for it cost $500. (That was about 25% of the total system cost.)

Yep, I once got a £500 bank loan to pay for a 10MB hard disk for my BBC Micro. Now I can buy a 6000 times larger SSD for under 2.5% of that price that weighs a few grams instead of a few Kg!

In 1992 the Teradata corporation built the first 1 terabyte database machine for Wal-Mart. I can't find out what they paid for it!

I interviewed with them about that time. As far as I can tell that was built from lots of Intel 368 boards. Didn't get the job. What do I know about databases.

Edit: Yes I can, a few years later they sold a new model of the system:

"Reuters agreed to pay NCR $50.7 million to expand its database management capacities, creating a 500 gigabyte data warehouse valued at over $76 million."

That's big for those days. I have used Teradata systems, but was generally unimpressed.
