expired Samsung 256GB Evo Plus MicroSD $58.94 + Delivery (Free with eBay Plus) @ Apusauction eBay

1480
PROGRAM20

Unless I've missed something, this is the first time this 256GB card has cracked the $60 barrier. Just barely. :)

This is a UHS-I, U3 card that's rated for 100MB/s reads and "up to" 90MB/s writes.

It will work fine in your phone, GoPro, Switch, digital camera (unless you're recording very high-bitrate video), and just about anything else.

It will work in a dashcam too, although a high-endurance card might be preferable for greater longevity.

    Is this a good one to use for Nintendo Switch? Thinking about going digital with my games and upgrading from a 64gb.

    •  

      Consider a 400gb card too.

    •  

      Some large games seem slow to launch but I’m not really sure what to expect for load times from these cards. Most launch quick and no issues once I’ve launched them though.

    •  

      These are fine for a switch! Won't be the fastest or best experience but it'll work and at the price it's fine.

  •  

    I've heard of some sd cards being sold online being fake. Has anyone bought from this seller before?

    • +1 vote

      I think apus and shopping square are the same people

    •  

      You are right storage fakes are a big problem on online sites even offline sites like eBay but the ratings of this seller apusauction seem good and plentiful so good chance they are a legit high volume wide range variety seller.

      I would honestly take the chance at this price level (mainly because I got one of the FANCY15 $15 off ebay targeted codes).

      But I spent heavy last night on the origin sale so I might have to wait for the next one and no real need for it right now anyway.

      Honestly I want a good deal on the 400gb or 512gb.

      •  

        Hi Could you please clarify that both the codes (FANCY15 and Program20) can be stacked?
        Just noticed i am also "targeted" for FANCY20!

          I have no idea and won't be able to test it on anything soon.

          Sorry man hopefully somebody else buying something today or soon can help you out instead.

        • +2 votes

          Nope, you can only use both of them.

          Also, sadly FANCY15 can't be used on gift cards so you can't buy an Ebay gift card and do it that way :/

      •  

        512gb @ $175 at the moment, that's pretty good no?

        •  

          Considering I bought a 200gb for roughly $87 AUD delivered few years ago yeah that is good if legit.

    •  

      I've bought from them in the past and I can tell you they are genuine cards. I use them regularly and I'm quite happy about it.

    •  

      It's good practice to test them. h2w is a program I've used in the past.

      Going by seller isn't a guarantee because they may not even know themselves that they've been swindled and because it may change from batch to batch. The counterfeit industry is really pervasive. There are even medical counterfeits that make their way to legit outlets. The best thing to do with SD cards is to just test them yourself.

    •  

      I've been buying SD cards from apus for years, no issues. They all have been genuine.
      I did buy 128GB cards off a different ebay seller (following an ozbargain post, can't remember name) and they were fakes.

    •  

      A warning about Apusauction seller. The Ad on eBay claims that item location is Sydney. However, Paypal shows that the seller is actually Zapals Tech Corporation, which is Hong Kong company! I've bought from Zapals directly in the past: they do drop-shipping, and don't have stock in Australia. This also means that Samsung Australia wouldn't honour the warranty should the card goes faulty.

    Very tempted by this to replace my 128GB in my Surface Book 2 but would rather hold out for a larger capacity drive.

    Is this the sort of thing that Amazon could be likely to price match? Have prime til the end of the month!

    •  

      No. Amazon AU has tended (anecdotally) to price match brick and mortar stores and not apparently ebay codes. The deal below is Amazon US via Amazon AU which is no doubt totally unrelated to Australian ebay promotions.

    about the same price from amazon.au if including postage.. cheaper if you have prime. https://www.amazon.com.au/Samsung-MicroSDXC-Adapter-MB-ME256...

    I wonder if It is possible to price match at officeworks?

    Test your cards when you get them people.
    I bought one recently and it had a few faulty sectors. Cards from this seller are Chinese imports.

  •  

    Can I get 4-5 of these and use as portalbe HDD ?

  •  

    They also have 128G for $32. Is this a good deal as well?

    Or save another dollar by using this other listing of theirs.

    $58.95 + $9.99 delivery $67.94
    Save another few bucks buying through FUTU ebay which sells for $80 free delivery, after 20% discount of PROGRAM20 makes it $64, which means FUTU is cheaper if you buy 1, same price if buy 2. And more expensive if you purchase more than 1

    is eBay Plus worth it bois?

    •  

      Don't get it just for it. They were giving out free e vouchers and also Google home minis if you joined!

    Great price if you're a plus member!

    Cheers OP! didnt buy it as no ebay plus but thanks to the comments i grabbed one from amazon as i had prime :)

  •  

    512gb @ $175 seems good, anyone found better?

  •  

    I bought 3 for my Sony A6500 but bring the noob that I am, I didn't realise that I might not be able to shoot 4K if the SD card is too slow.

    Are these OK for my purpose? If not, what SD card would be far enough?

    •  

      Yes they're fine as they're U3 cards, so you can use the higher 4K bitrates. I use them in my A6500 and A7 III.

      •  

        Phew! Thanks for the reassurance. I only just got the A6500 last week so I'm still getting all the necessary stuff.

        Are you a pro videographer?

        •  

          I only just got the A6500 last week so I'm still getting all the necessary stuff.

          Nice! It's a fantastic little camera. Do get some nice fast lenses.

          Are you a pro videographer?

          I do work with audio and video as part of my day job, but I'd consider myself more of a hobbyist as I enjoy shooting e.g. my holiday trips more than my work. :)

          •  

            @eug: That's sounds like an awesome job though haha. The reason I thought you are a pro because your A7 III and A6500 seems to be a common setup.

            That's exactly what I plan to use it for. Record my holidays so I have some memories to look back on and maybe show others.

            I found it easy to find good online photography tutorials for learning from scratch but nothing for filming.

            Do you have any recommendations where I can learn the very basics of filming?

            •  

              @Hogg:

              The reason I thought you are a pro because your A7 III and A6500 seems to be a common setup.

              Oh, they're both well-priced cameras that do the job well. I've gone through a number of cameras along the way and these two are my favorite.

              That's exactly what I plan to use it for. Record my holidays so I have some memories to look back on and maybe show others.

              That's a good plan. I usually video my major trips as I find video a better way of remembering the trip compared to just photos. If others are interested in watching, I think it's easier for them to watch a quick ~4-5min video than go through a hundred still photos. I do still take photos as well of course.

              For my last trip to NZ, I used the A7 III for 'general' filming, a GoPro 7 for the longer hikes, and the A6500 with a Samyang 12mm and Discover 25mm for more interesting shots during the hikes as I didn't want to lug around the A7 and large lens. Those two lenses did a great job for their size - I don't always need tack-sharp expensive glass.

              Do you have any recommendations where I can learn the very basics of filming?

              Hmm… not really, sorry! I started out with photography myself. Years ago I bought the Canon 5D MkII to shoot photos for a friend's wedding. I then started playing around with the video recording feature… as we all know, that was the camera that started the DSLR video revolution. So when another friend's wedding came up a few months later, I asked him if I could video it just so I could play around. He liked the results, so I just kept playing around. I'm more of a hands-on person so I find it easier to learn by jumping into it and making mistakes, then finding out how to fix those mistakes by googling or watching youtube videos.

              For work it's more talking-head stuff which is quite different to event videography. You have full control over lighting, plenty of time to choose a camera and lens and set it up, not have to worry about motion, etc. For events like a wedding or a holiday, everything is run-and-gun so you do have to be on the ball quite a bit more.

              If you're after a structured tutorial, there's probably something on Skillshare?

                  Ha, I wouldn't call myself a pro! :)
                  Travel videos are an interesting thing. I've seen lots of really amazing videos on YouTube, which makes me wonder if those were video-holidays or holidays that are videoed. I try to strike a balance between enjoying the holiday and recording the holiday. It helps that I enjoy documenting what I do, but sometimes it can be tricky to both document and experience the trip at the same time.

                  Reading your post gets me excited to go out and practice. :)

                  Yess! Just video whatever events are coming up and play around with the editing. Watching other people's videos online can give you some inspiration too.

                @eug: Still trying to decide if I should change from my GH5 to the a7iii. So tempted to get it for photos and low light…

                •  

                  @jasontravelstheworld: I'm assuming from your username, you do travel vids?

                  One of my friends whom I went on a holiday with a few months ago did just that. Three of us had A7 IIIs and he got to play around with them on the trip, which convinced him to get one.

                  The GH5 is a good camera, but I do prefer the A7 III for the low light performance with both video and available-light photography, and shallower DoF. The downside is that faster lenses are bigger and heavier, but if you don't mind 'character' MF lenses like the Voigtlander 35/40mm f/1.4 or the SLR Magic 1.4s and 1.2s, size isn't too bad. The Sony FE 24mm 1.4 is a really compact, lightweight, fast lens too - it just costs $2.1k.

                  •  

                    @eug: After extensive research, I went for the Fuji xt3. Amazing stills and very capable video as well.. time will tell if I like it haha

                    •  

                      @jasontravelstheworld: Nice, I love the physical controls on that camera. So tactile and solid-feeling with a really nice EVF that's noticeably better than the A7 series. I'm sure you'll like it, and looking at your awesome Patagonia video, you'll definitely make good use of that 4K60. :)

                      BTW how do you like the Osmo Pocket?
