    I wanted to buy the 128GB card to go with my new phone, but I can't find it anywhere. The only place that has them is some random seller on Amazon for $50 over msrp, which I won't pay. I've tried: MicroCenter, Fry's, Bestbuy, Tiger Direct, Newegg and even Radio Shack none of them had it. Have you been able to find it? Do you have it? How is it?

    Its a fairly new product, within the last month or so... And working retail i can tell you, Memory Cards are not like electronics, they are just accessories, so they do not change the plan o grams and layouts of any section to fit new products the second they come out... Give it another month... im sure they will be popping up more and more, and hopefully at a decent price

    Porn. Tons of porn. No but seriously real reason is I don't have a micro sd card anymore I lost it and to me it made sense to buy the biggest capacity so I will only need to buy one.

    128gb is about 6 hours of video shot on my note 3.

    @deadp1xel: why not opt for the Samsung "PRO" microSDXC cards? they are faster than the "Ultra" versions of Sandisk.

    it's hard to tell ahead of time whether the 4K video of the S5 may require a super fast, most current, microSDXC card or would the 30MB/sec of the Sandisk "Ultra" suffice.

    4k on my note 3 uses 6 MB/s. Not sure how much 4k on the s5 would use but I doubt anywhere near 30MB/s

    Ya they're faster with less storage. I thought about getting a 64GB extreme San Disk, but I valued storage over speed.

    128 GB Micro SD Card Flash Card Class 10 SD Adapter USB Adapter | eBay was the only one i could find that was reasonable. Whether you trust it or not is personal preference.

    Thanks for sharing. I've gotten burned by eBay twice so I'm all good.

    Hi all,

    I'm awaiting the delivery of my S5 due on Friday, coming across from iPhones for the last 5-6 years I'm pretty excited at all of the possibilities of modding and adding on etc.

    HOWEVER!!

    This brings much confusion also, whiles reading the S4 threads on cards, there are some posters saying stuff about the phones only being suitable for class 6 cards etc....

    Will this be the same for the 5 or have they updated the sd capabilities?

    199.99! Ouch! I could swing around 120.00 but almost 200.00 for a memory card is a little to rich for me!

    amazon.com is out of stock Amazon.com: SanDisk Ultra 128 GB microSDXC UHS-I Card with Adapter (SDSDQU-128G-AFFP-A): Computers & Accessories as of today, but I wouldn't pay Best Buy $200 when Amazon is $119, just wait a bit and save some cash.
