If you're searching for a deal on flash storage, today may be the day to act: Amazon's Gold Box deal of the day for February 4th includes a sizeable selection of SanDisk cards and flash drives.
While the list includes full-sized SDXD, CF cards, and USB flash drives, of particular interest to the Android crowd will be the microSDXC cards, which are becoming absurdly cheap of late. For just $24, you can get a 32GB mSDXC card, or for $47, a 64GB card. Not bad at all. While it isn't the cheapest we've seen the 64GB version, it's close enough that it's definitely worth mentioning.

Once in a while Amazon throws a sale we can't miss, and today's SanDisk memory blowout as part of the Gold Box deals is a perfect example of just that.
We have fast SanDisk MicroSD "Ultra" cards ranging from 16GB ($18.99) to 64GB ($59.99) at lowest prices ever for these cards according to all the price checks I've run. The 32GB MicroSD is in the sweet spot of $27.99. Remember, these are not Class 2 or Class 4 - they're high quality Class 6 and Class 10 cards rated for 30MB/s transfer speeds and Full HD video recording.
If MicroSD is not your cup of tea, you will also be able to pick up:
- CF/CF-Pro cards from 8GB to 128GB,
- regular SDHC/SDHC-Pro 8GB to 128GB SDXC UHS-I (that's a whole lot of space),
- USB flash drives in 32GB or 64GB capacities,
- and last but not least, 6Gbps "Extreme" SSDs ranging from 120GB ($99.99) all the way up to 480GB ($379.99), bearing a pretty spotless 4.8-star rating and looking absolutely fantastic.
As I recently started downloading and listening to lots of podcasts, I found that my Hero's 2GB MicroSD card filled up literally overnight.
2GB is such a measly number that disgracing the Hero with it any longer was a blow to both mine and its pride, so I headed over to Amazon to find a new faster, higher capacity storage card.
After careful deliberation and weighing all pros and cons, I ended up picking the A-Data Turbo 16GB Class 6 MicroSD card.
Here are the factors I had considered before I picked the A-Data card:
16GB was enough for my needs and 32GB was getting really expensive. Read More
