expired SanDisk Ultra 32GB Micro SD $17.99 @ Officeworks

570

Looking for some cheap micro SD cards for my new cameras and found that OfficeWorks surprisingly has a good price on the 32gb Sandisk Ultra MicroSD cards. Price at MSY is $19 and JB is $29. More OfficeWorks locations around than MSY, so more convenient for most people. Going to grab some later today.

    How much is 64gb?

    This SD card is not good for use in Go Pros and dash cams recording past 1080p. In fact, this SD card is not warranted for use in dash cams. Pay a bit more and get a Lexar 633x with lifetime warranty.

      Agree it's not good for GoPros. Not because of the resolution, but because the GoPro's firmware sometimes has trouble scanning SanDisk cards.

      •  

        Agreed. A lot of dash cameras throw up errors cos they block the usage of this memory card.

        I use 300x Lexar as it is the same memory type as the 633x, just a bit cheaper - for all my dash cameras.

        I'm being seriously lazy here, but do you guys happen to have a recommendation of a decent but not bank breaking dash camera? Much obliged for any info :)

        • +6 votes

          I'm using my viofo A119 and its good, I would recommend to go for A119 as it's cheaper now compared to A119S. G1W-C is also a good choice for sub $50, night recording is only decent though.

          @ntb: im running a viofo A119 and so far no complaints yet. I don't know how well it'll hold up in summer but this is by far the best dash cam I've used.

          Another vote for Viofo A119. I've had it for a year now (it survived the summer without any problem). Cheap-ish, small, just works, good picture quality.

          @ntb:

          Thanks heaps for the recom. ntb, niggard and eDust! Really appreciated! :)

          @Jawanzar: If later you decide to go for more expensive options (2 channels, etc), just avoid Blackvue, using it on my car and I have nothing but headache. And the support is beyond useless, I sent them a question a month ago but never got a response.

        •  

          @ntb: Ok thanks for the warning. :) I think I will probably try and use something basic, which is more aligned to my own understanding of the technology.

        •  

          @Jawanzar:
          On the other hand im using the A119S. The lower FOV and better dynamic range gives a clearer image. It records at 1080p instead of 1440p, but 1080 is standard anyways.

      is it okay for xiaomi ip camera?

      • +2 votes

        bought this last night for this exact purpose , using on xiaobai 360 smart IP camera and its recording fine :)

      You need the extreme not Ulta, ultra is fairly slow write speed …..good for watching bad for recording as cameras don't have enough buffers on fast frame rates at 1080p

      • +1 vote

        xiaomi camera is only 10fps so ultra should be fine

      • +9 votes

        Actually, that's not necessarily the case.

        This is UHS-I (so fast read speeds) and U1 (so guaranteed 10MBps write speeds, if the device supports it).
        If the device DOESNT support the 3v bump-up to reach U1 speeds, it's STILL Class10, which is the fastest the 'old' cards go to.
        You'll find once you get above 16GB, it's hard to NOT get a U1 rated card.

        The 'Extreme' is U3 rated, which is 30MBps.

        You'd be hard pressed to find a phone camera, even at super slow mo, that needs over 10MBps write speed.
        That said, if you're talking about a DSLR, then sure, RAW will do it easily.

        Security cameras, however, use H264 codec normally, and won't be above 4Mbps for a 1080p stream, on average :)

        4MEGABITS, is a lot less than 10MEGABYTES. so you're fine; even at double that bitrate.

        Just never confuse UHS-I and U1 and you'll be A-OK.

      I use this one for my gopro session 5, and it works well?

    Looks like they saw the latest post office catalogue. Same exact prices there till 11th June

    • +1 vote

      I was going to say the same thing. On 12th June, expect Officeworks to put the price back up.

    •  

      Yeah, I saw it in the auspost catalogue too. Officeworks probably reduced their prices to stop people from price matching and getting the 5% off.

      •  

        I really don't think they reduced the price for everyone because they were worried a small minority of customers would price match and save 95c!

  •  

    Any difference between this and the Class10 one on offer at AustPost? Seems to be that UHS-1 & Class 10 are the same?

    http://catalogue.auspost.com.au/catalogue/finish-the-financi...

    •  

      The one you linked is 64GB (Class 10) and $34.99. The 32GB UHS-1 version is on the front page of the same catalogue.

    • +8 votes

      BIG difference.

      UHS-I (and UHS-II) is a READ speed rating.
      U1 (and U3) are WRITE speed rating - in devices that support fast write speeds.
      Class (Such as 4/6/10) is the 'Old' speed measurement for devices that DONT support U1 support (needs to be able to supply more volts).

      So,
      UHS-I = 90MBps read. (more than enough usually)
      Class2/4/6/8/10 = Write speeds of 2/4/6/8/10MBps
      U1 = 10MBps Write.
      U3 = 30MBps Write

      [There are a lot more, but they're not really relevant\available yet in the usual consumer world]

      While 'Class 10' and 'U1' Look identical on paper, in practice, usually Class10 will REACH 10MBps, and rarely go any further.
      Where as U1 cards, will usually see more like 12~15MBps in practice.

      The ONLY confusing part about SD cards, is that some 'Slower' cards are better for RANDOM reads\writes (so not recording video, or playing music, but say, reading 100 tiny files from random places);
      so if you're using them in a project like a RaspberryPi, or a Nintendo Switch, you need to do some googling on benchmarks.
      At the moment, the usual winner is the Samsung Evo+ range, if you need random writes without a huge pricetag (there are better, just very very expensive).

      •  

        Alrighty, so I grabbed the 64gb c10 from the post office. Worth swapping for the U1 for the same price? Or is it a much of a muchness? (GoPro/ 1080p mavic)

        •  

          Your best bet is to google some specific benchmarks.
          Find someone who benchmarks cards, and see if you can find the U1 vs Class10 anywhere.
          FOR THIS BRAND.

          I'd imagine the GoPro is perfectly capable of using U1 speeds, the question will simply be do you need it?
          Only your testing will confirm or deny that.

          'Class' cards, and 'U1' are only good for slower devices, these days, I personally only buy U3, just for future proofing.

        •  

          @MasterScythe:

          Aight, I might stick to the C10 for the GoPro (I already use one and it's fine) and I'll grab a U3 for the mavic. ugh. Money hungry drone.

        •  

          @zukand: Samsung EVO+ or Sandisk Extreme (no need for pro).

    Will be getting two of the 64gb and use it on a micro SD to Sony duo adapter to make it a 128gb card and load all the psp games and emulator games to my psp.

    All classic gaming console on the go!!

    price match at jb?

  •  

    U1… AAANNNDDDD… UHS-I, OK, these are going in my RaspberryPi3's.

    The 64gb cards are a good deal at MSY ($32), you can get office works to price beat by 5%.

  • +1 vote

    went to the PO and they didn't have anything larger than 16gb. Got the 32gb price matched at JBHIFI, it is the Class 10 card rather than U1 but not going to make any difference in practice so meh.

    got 2 - thanks

  •  

    I mean its a decent deal, but they are regularly $20 off ebay. Not really a bargain, for me. In my opinion.

  •  

    Thats a good deal for a BnM store. Ill have a sneak peak and see if i can get a 64gb card for a back drive in my notebook.

  •  

    I think I can do one better than this. Sandisk Extreme Pro MicroSd card 32Gb $15 from coop. http://www.coop.com.au/sandisk-extreme-pro-microsd-card-32gb...

    •  

      they will probably end up cancelling your order. Very dishonest stock levels and poor customer service forcing the membership to get the prices then telling you a week+ later they sold out, then you have to wait another week+ for a refund, and the membership refund will take 8+ weeks and is by cheque. Terrible online ordering experience from them. Was looking forward to my four $5 32gb cards (same as these ones) but it wasn't to be.

  •  

    Walmart is offering 128gb card |Brand| Samsung @ $13. this deal offends me, sadly :)

  •  

    Thanks OP. Bought one at OW Parafield SA

  •  

    I got one! Thanks

  •  

    Subi ticket $29

  •  

    It would be nice to see some good prices on 8gb and 16gb cards. Sometimes (eg Camera) its handy to have a few smaller cards than one big one.
