  • AusPost doesn't do online, does it? I'll wake up almost midday so I'll probably miss out on the cards.

    • Nope which is prob a good thing otherwise there would be some who would buy too many, deal starts 2mrw so there should be plenty in stock :)

      • Hmm! I really didn't think that way. You have a good point, Trent. Many Ozbargainers are as lazy as I am so let the early birds catch the worms. :)

        • act they do have a stationary site but don't think the cards are on there cause the site sucks

        • @TRENT86: LOL! I've already tried searching the cards on their site right when you've posted the deal and couldn't even find the cards. Whenever you try to search a related term you get stuff that have nothing to do with what you've searched for.

          Will see if I can find one in my local store around midday tomorrow. If not then it aint the end of the world.

      • No, the deal starts Today as 4 Jan 2016.

        Edit: Op have written the comment after 12 AM, that's why I got confused which he/she meant it today.

  • Are these the 80mb/s read cards?

    • From catalogue photos they are, for the smaller size one officeworks had better price

      • Had visit to officeworks. They willing to price match. But it is 48mbps card not 80mbps.

        • Yeah, and worsre still Sandisk don't quote a write speed, shich is more important
          https://www.sandisk.com.au/home/memory-cards/microsd-cards/u...

          I've got issues with corrupted images on my phone due (apparently) to slow write speeds on my microSD card (hence why I'm looking for another card)

        • I think that was the same with the smaller size cards they had - some store 48mbs - some 80mbs - both same price.
          I guess some stores havent cleared out their old stocks yet.
          Not surprising for the 64gb cards really.

        • @effgee:

          This really shouldn't happen at all with photos as it doesn't just dump the file, it waits until it has finished writing. I suspect the sandisk are more prone to problems. Many people have had problems with Sandisk in the dashcams and no problems with Samsung.

        • Just bought 16gb sandisk SD card from officeworks last week for $9,it was 80mbs

        • @not a bargain:

          What you say makes sense. Current card is Lexar 64GB "600x", but others on the web with the same problem have all 'solved' it by the same action - buy a new, high quality card.

  • Thanks for sharing TRENT; im in need of a new MicroSD!

    Question guys: I'm a noob when it comes to laptops but is this a good deal too for basic usage (no gaming)?

    http://catalogue.auspost.com.au/offer/notebook-laptop-comput...

    • It's good only for web browsing, watching videos or basic office apps. Laptops in this price bracket often tend to perform even basic tasks slowly (due to slow HDD) so if you couple this with an SSD, you might be g2g. Also, see reviews on YouTube.

  • Just got one and confirm it is 80mb/s

  • Good enough for 1080 60fps gopro 3+ silver?

    • Yes. The 80mb/s one is good for full HD.

      4K will need Extreme +

      P.S. Whilst extreme is quoted at 90mb/s and ultra at 80mb/s, real world performance is much more than mere 10mb/s, often more than double.

      • Sadly the SD / Micro SD format is so backwards compatible that most people don't realize that the device could be the actual bottleneck.

        People who get 10mb/s off their Extreme / Ultra SD or MicroSD are most likely using a older standard device or Card Reader.

        If you want to go faster you'd want to do the benchmark on a pc with a usb3 UHS standard card reader and you should be able to achieve faster speeds.

        • Can you please explain more? I want to achieve the faster speeds for when I'm transferring videos from my GoPro to my laptop but I don't really know how and my IT skills are just too shit to do these stuffs :/.

        • @trevorinski9:

          Buy a USB3.0 card reader. Around $10 from eBay… will do the job just fine.

        • @trevorinski9: Use a USB card reader. The one I seriously recommend is the Kingston MobileLite G4. It goes for about $16AU on eBay. Sports a separate slot for both SD and MicroSD cards (both can be read at once too). Supports the new UHS-II bus and U3 cards and USB3.0, so you'll get the full speed of those new cards assuming your laptop supports USB3.0.

    • I have the SanDisk 32GB 48 mb/s in a Xiaomi Yi action camera. Works fine @ 1080p 50fps and 2K 30fps. They are the top two quality resolutions on that device.

  • Yeah but for GoPros the write speed is more important.

  • Thank god where I live the Post Office and OW is in 100m of each other.

  • Urgh… I have bought a few from the HN $9 16GB Ultra deal…

  • Bought the Sony action camera deal here:
    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/226236

    and bought the SanDisk 16GB Ultra UHS-1 MicroSDHC Memory Card $9.00 Officeworks deal here:
    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/228162
    and while the packaging says 'take better pictures and full hd video' and is a class 10 card, it appears the camera doesn't like/recognise it.

    Anyone with the same camera found the 16GB card didn't work for them either?
    Does the 64GB card listed work with this camera?

    • Also bought the Sony action cam for just $124 - what a deal that was! So close to pulling the trigger on a Xioami Yi, too, was glad I didn't!

      Your Sandisk should work fine for standard recording.

      There are a couple of things to mention here:
      1 If the micro sd is not being recognised at all - it is possible to insert the micro sd card upside down on the sony (only device I've ever used where that can happen), try it the other way round and see if that helps
      2 You are trying to record in XAVC.S format (High Qual) which is only possible with a MicroSDXC card (64GB minimum) - try change the recording format to standard 1080p 30f/s and try again

      Hope that helps!

      • Thanks @debauched sloth !

        It's my son's camera and your option 1 was the issue… thanks, we have a working camera!

  • Got it from OW for $28.49 Thanks OP.

  • Is someone able to tell me if these are the same product?

    https://www.jbhifi.com.au/cameras/sandisk/sandisk-ultra-micr...

    http://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/p/sandisk-64g...

    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/SanDisk-64GB-Ultra-Micro-SD-SDXC-...

    These three have a '1' in a 'U' on the bottom left of the card, the AusPost catalog has a 10 in a Circle. And 'SDHC' vs 'SDXC' yet the cards are the same in the picture? Thanks

  • Which card are peeps using for XAVC.S format (High Qual) on the Sony action camera deal here:
    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/226236

  • Got 5% from OW too. Their price was about $60 and was told they don't match price for clearance. So i had to show them it's not clearance sale but on special.

    • That's good. Normally when I asked for price match, OW always called or checked to find out whether it's in stock or not. For item not in stock they didn't allow price match. Do you just show them the webpage?

      • The staff didn't call Post office but checked its catalogue online.
        I showed them the same catalogue on my smartphone but the staff checked on their computer again (maybe just to make sure?)

  • Thanks for posting OP.
    got last 2 from Gardens City PO.
    could easily get 5% off from OW but went for the 80 mb/s instead.
    This is going into my new camcorder from HN.

  • Will this work well for Gopro 4 silver?

  • It's been mentioned already but the OW ones are 48MB/s. Pay that extra dollar or so for the 80MB/s from AP.

    Bought 2 from my local one. Also found 2x 4tb Seagate Expansions for $99! Winning.

  • Got officeworks to pricematch the 64gb micro sd card. Can confirm the Chadstone officeworks has the 80mbs version (even though the card you take to the counter says 48mbs)

    • (even though the card you take to the counter says 48mbs)

      Ooooh well that's interesting!

  • Plenty left at Macquarie centre AP NSW. They had to dig around for 15 mins but had a big box of them.

  • Can confirm OW actually has the 80MB/s stocked even though place holder says 48MB/s

    Time to refund those AP purchases ^^

  • Any idea if a sandisk 64gb would be suitable for a MacBook Pro retina?? I want to put iPhoto and iTunes in it and free up my ssd?

  • OW has dropped their price to $29 to avoid the 5% pm from AustPost.

  • There are 10 left in Kogarah Post Shop, just ask for them at the counter.

    Slower in writing than the Samsung Evo for the H2testw. Slower in random writes but much faster in the sequential writes for the CrystalDiskMark tests. The Officeworks Sandisk performs roughly the same.
