Today's Amazon Goldbox deal is going to be welcomed by, well... pretty much everyone who uses products that utilize flash memory - specifically full-sized SD cards. That includes such Android tablets as the Toshiba Thrive, Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet, and ASUS Transformer TF101 (with dock), among others. Of course, once you look past Android, you can use these SD cards in cameras (both DSLR and P&S alike), computers, MP3 players, and many other gadgets.

As you can probably tell from the title, the deal involves 3 sizes of SanDisk Ultra - 16GB SDHC, 32GB SDHC, and 64GB SDXC:

All cards are Class 10, which should be plenty fast for shooting 1080p HD video and super hi-res photos. For example, I couldn't get 1080p or even 720p video recorded on my Canon T2i until I upgraded to Class 10. In fact, it was a 32GB SanDisk Class 10 card, except I bought it for a whopping $186 in 2011. The price today... yeah, you could say there's a bit of bitterness in my mouth.

Note: Make sure your devices can read SDXC cards before ordering the 64GB version.

Important: Again, these are full-sized SD cards, not microSD. Read the intro paragraph if you still thought these were microSD by the time you read this line.

    It's times like this where I wish I didn't buy the Galaxy Nexus...

    • Chris Bozsik

      Except if the Nexus had removable storage, it would be microSD, so this sale would still not do you any good.

    Why this article? SD cards don't need anything run by Android, do they?

      Read the very first paragraph.

    Thanks guys for the heads up!!! You are all awesome. Just snagged the 64GB version for my TF201. Even though I don't possibly need 64GB, it was well worth the money spent!

  • Cary Abend

    Figures that I bought the 8GB card for 16.95 on Friday. :(

  • Deavers

    Wow, I was going to buy one this weekend for my new cheap Blu 5.3 andriod phone.
    Thanks

  • CoZ

    Well just cancelled the order. This is for a regular SD card and not, I repeat NOT a MicroSD card. That's what I get for not paying attention!!!

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      Haha, I was wondering if you were going to come back and comment on that purchase.

      • CoZ

        Nice. Just waiting for me to realize my mistake??? It's not like you don't have my email and could have reached out and said "fool, it's a regular SD".
        Such a one way editor you are. ;)

        • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

          By the time I woke up this morning, you already posted the 2nd time. I meant when I was scanning comments, I was wondering if you were going to come back and post again. :)

  • CoZ

    Of course. I didn't want anyone to make the same mistake I did. Of course I had to send out about 10 texts to my friends that I originally sent the deal to this morning telling them to disregard.
    I thought this deal was too goo to be true. And, it was.
    But, you all are still awesome. Even though I can't properly read. ;)

  • Steve

    Oh man, people, these cards are SDHC/XC, not microSDHC/XC!!!! They won't fit in any phone or tablet, but in your digital camera or similar device. But most likely nothing where android runs on.

    • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

      If everyone read the intro, they would have known this :) There are Android devices that are able to utilize SD cards - tablets specifically. I listed 3.

      • CoZ

        READ??? I just come here to look at the pretty pictures :)

      • Scooter

        You wouldn't know off hand if the TF201 (with dock, obviously) will support the 64geebee, would you?

        • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

          Look up a recent review of the 64GB microSDXC card Aaron did, pretty sure he got it running on the Prime. Should be the same with full sized.
