Toshiba 128GB Exceria U3 MicroSDXC £26.94 (~AU $48) Delivered @ MyMemory

1160

Quite possibly the cheapest U3 card to make it onto ozbargain, perfect for 4K recording.

Since this is a new model of the card, the 1 review on Amazon that mention the speeds suggests 90Mb/s read and 31MB/s write. There is also a crystaldiskmark on HUKD, which shows speeds of 82MB/s read and 30Mb/s write.

    Curious if this will work in GoPro 4 etc.

    Wow it barely makes the U3 standard.

      Why is that poor?

      It is completely suitable for use in pretty much every consumer recording device.

      30 megabytes/sec = 240 megabits/sec. Even the GH4 only records at a maximum of 200megabits/sec for 4k video. GoPro records at like 60 megabits/sec.

      Unless you are using the micro SD card for archiving (not really recommended) this card is, for the moment, just as good as cards with higher write speed for most purposes. It is superior to the Samsung Evo and Evo + and Sandisk Ultra.

        I was thinking about getting it for my Nikon but with that write speed i can forget about it.

          Which Nikon?
          How big are your RAW files and which card do you use/want to use instead?

          Uncompressed RAW for a Sony A7II (full frame, 24.3MP) is 48MB per file.
          Compressed RAW was about 30MB.
          With compressed RAW the buffer can clear at around 1 photo per sec (which isn't bad).
          I have a Sandisk Extreme Pro 64GB MicroSD and that has a write speed of 36MB/s on the A7RII, though I'm not really sure why they differ for each camera
          Are you doing burst shots constantly?

          Why, are you aware of some magical 128GB micro Sd that has better writes at a similar cost?

          @cwongtech:

          I am using a D750 and my cards have write speeds of 60 to 80 MB/s.

          NOT sure why you assume I don't know what I am talking about.

        •  

          @Danthemanz:

          Not micro and nor magical, I need it for a Dslr and 30 MB are just to slow.

          NOT sure why you assume I don't know what I am talking about.

          Okay, so the D750 is a 24MP FullFrame as well. From this website, sample RAW files from a D750 average at 27.9MB per file.
          Which cards do you have that have write speeds of 60 - 80MB/s?
          Apparently my Sandisk Extreme Pro MicroSDXC 64GB can write at 83M.8MB/s in a D500, but that one cost $70 on sale.
          I'm not assuming anything, I'm genuinely curious as to why you think a 30MB/s write speed 128GB MicroSD for $45 is poor.

          Currently using MicroSD cards since they are more convenient (smaller, MicroSD slot on SurfacePro), always go on sale (due to higher demand by smartphones) but they typically are slower than the larger variants.

        Because he doesn't understand.

        It is completely suitable for use in pretty much every consumer recording device.

        Exactly, this is a great deal for a great MicroSDXC card. It won't suit everyone but is a better buy then slower cards for a similar price.

      •  

        How will this fare in snow field though? If I am correct, the card slow down a little when used in these cold conditions so bring it down below required speed for 4K recording?

        • +1 vote

          I must admit that I am not aware of such an interaction, but the spec sheet from Toshiba states that the recommended operating temperature is between -25 celsius to 85 celsius so I think snow field will be fine.

    Its class 3 not 10…..that make it poor?

    • +6 votes

      No, it's UHS Class 3. This will explain it.

    • +2 votes

      Class 10 refers to a minimum of 10 megabytes/sec write speed. It is a lower standard than the U rating system.

      U3 refers to a minimum of 30 megabytes/sec, and is currently the fastest possible standard for SD cards.

      This is not a slow card in and of itself. It is probably the slowest of all U3 specced cards available at the moment, but it is still faster than U1 specced cards.

    So these improve anything in a smartphone?
    These better option for dashcam?
    These better option for DJI 4

      Your questions are weird…
      SD cards provide extra storage space for your devices.

        Over standard Class 10 Sandisk Ultra Microsd cards?

        • +3 votes

          No, the classes simply describe speeds. Please go and type some things into Google.

        •  

          If you're talking about whether the speeds of these are better than the class 10 SanDisk you're talking about, then yes they are.

          U3 > U1 >= 10 > 6 > 4 > 2

    Tempted to replace my dodgy Silicon Power U1

  •  

    I might need this for my GoPro.
    Btw, is there any GoPro deal around?

    oh dear ! Writing speed a bit low for 4k

  •  

    Was thinking about this for a Gopro 4 silver I recently purchased.
    I heard that it isn't recommended to use a card over 64GB. Is this true or would this card be ok??

  •  

    Just bought using 28 degrees. Came out to $49.88

  •  

    Can someone who's purchased from them before give me an idea of how the shipping times are?

  •  

    I'm not a huge fan of Toshiba as a brand, but it's hard to argue with this price.

    •  

      They make great sd cards, many of their sd cards are made in Japan, but not the one in this deal, which is Taiwan.

      •  

        I don't doubt it. But Sandisk warranty is worldwide and lifetime. I'm willing to pay an extra $10 for peace of mind.

  •  

    Couldn't resist, got one to replace my Samsung EVO. Cheers, OP.

  •  

    Add one as well. Thanks.

  •  

    Will U3 microSD cards work on current and older devices e.g. Galaxy S4/S5/S7. I read that many devices will support class 10 or UHS1 but for UHS3 cards will work only on devices that supports minimum of 30MB/s.

    Edit: Just found out that USH (I & II) class 3 is backward compatible as long as the device supports the maximum capacity.

    Hello Toshiba
    http://www.toshiba-memory.com/cms/en/products/sd-cards/excer...

    Thanks for inventing flash memory. I only started buying 64GB in 2015; it will be at least a couple of years until 128GB reaches those tight prices I love ($20 and under). Will keep you in mind for then.

    PS. 'Exceria' sounds like the sound I make when in the toilet sometimes. My regards to your marketing team.

    How long does it usually take to deliver from MyMemory?

    • +1 vote

      2 weeks from memory
      5.5 years ago (last time I bought from mymemory) was 10 days from payment to doorstep, 8 working/business days.

      Not sure if anything has changed with their postal speed but they were quite consistent apart from Xmas time

    Got one! will be great for my Samsung s7 Edge

    Is using a MicroSDXC card with the Adapter, the same speed as using a SDXC card?
    From my experience it was a little slower. I plan to get the Sony a7rii soon, which i believe is still SDXC. Should I get this card?

      Technically yes, because an adapter is completely just metal contacts.
      However if you were to purchase a SDXC of the same class and same capacity as an equivalent MicroSDXC, you should find the standard SDXC is slightly cheaper.

      From my experience it was a little slower. I plan to get the Sony a7rii soon, which i believe is still SDXC. Should I get this card?

      A7 series for some reason doesn't have the fastest write speeds.
      Check it out: http://alikgriffin.com/best-sd-memory-card-sony-a7rii

      A7RII has write speeds max of 35MB/s
      This card is just over 30MB/s.

      What this means for you: No point buying a faster card than this.

    Bought one. Fantastic price for a card of this size and speed.

    Price has gone back up to 39.99GBP. :(
