A high capacity microSD card is a good upgrade for any power user, even if at first blush you don't think the space is required. From my own experience, I never thought I needed one for extra space - I always had plenty enough storage as it was, or so I thought. But then I tried rooting a tablet and realized I needed a microSD card to do so, so sure enough, I ordered one. And today, I have no regrets; I keep music on it for local playback (since music streaming can still be spotty at times) and a few movies and photos that can be swapped from device to device seamlessly. In short: if you're a power user, you'll put the storage to good use - even if you don't think you need it.

Which brings us to today's Amazon Gold Box deal of the day:

A class 4 Transcend 32GB microSD card for just $24, and Prime eligible to boot. This is an awesome price for a mSD card of this capacity - in fact, the last time we featured a 32GB microSD card, it was class 10 and cost $40. In other words, if you're in the market, now's a great chance to snag one for cheap!

      I've heard of Transcend. Used several of their SDCards that I got from Newegg. Reputable brand.

    Transcend has some decent stuff, but if i'm going to buy a new MicroSD card (which I can't, since I have a Kindle Fire and a Galaxy Nexus), it's going to be at least class 10

    "The SDA defines several speed class ratings, but manufacturers may claim conformance to those ratings without independent verification"

    This wouldn't give me a warm and fuzzy feeling about purchasing cheap class 10 card.

    After Amazon tacked on $8 in shipping charges, it was cheaper to just get one from Newegg with free shipping. I opted for the Sandisk one for 30.99 total.

    Thanks for posting this, I got an 8GB Class 10 Transcend microSD for my mom's Acer A100 a couple months ago, and it has been pretty good, so I couldnt pass this one up for my brothers A500 so he can stop bugging me about not having one!
