SanDisk Ultra 200GB microSD card – Review

Micro SD cards are very common in a range of different devices including smart phones, cameras and video recorders. The main purpose of having an SD card in your device is to increase the storage space of the device.

In addition to increasing the storage space having an SD card fitted is also useful because it provides a separate storage space for your data. Because the SD card is device independent it can easily be moved to another device if required.

Introducing the SanDisk Ultra 200GB Micro SD

SanDisk have been in the removable flash storage market for a long time and have always been at the forefront of the technology involved. In fact some 10 years ago SanDisk very proudly released their 512MB card; at the time this was at the cutting edge of removable storage technology.

More recently SanDisk have introduced a 200GB version of their popular SD card which is almost 400 times the size. The 200GB SD card is one of the largest cards that is readily available and affordably priced.

At the time of writing the new 200GB SD card is listed on Amazon at a cost of $239.44 which is around 10% lower than its recommended retail price so if you are thinking about purchasing then now is the right time to do so before the price goes back up to its standard $249.99.
