Hello fellow ozBargainers!

I think this is the cheapest 512gb microsdxc card option available at the moment?
I might be missing something … or people do not trust Lexar?

I have purchased from PC Byte before with no issues.

Will try this in my WM1A walkman and Switch.

    6 months from now, there will be 1TB micro ad cards by the look.

    Who needs a portable drive….

      For speed? Any Portable SSD leave these in dusts.

      My biggest concern is that 512gb on a single Micro SD card is a lot of eggs in one basket.

        People said the same about 1MB hard drives.

          612 KB of memory ought to be enough for anybody. :-)

          The use case of micro sd cards are significantly different to hard drives so I don't see what your point is. Most micro sd cards are used to record data on portable devices, with photos and videos probably being the most common. If you are using micro sd for archiving then there are far better options.

          You wont find many people who take photos or videos and backs them up immediately. Most consumer level devices dont allow you to back up on the fly. If you lose this - either physically or due to card failure, it will hurt

            @Fiximol:

            They both store data. The can both fail.

            You wont find many people who take photos or videos and backs them up immediately.

            Many consumers don't backup the contents of their computer's drive regularly either, and they're often a lot larger than 512GB.

            If you lose this - either physically or due to card failure, it will hurt

            No different to a hard drive then, really.

            And from your earlier post:

            My biggest concern is that 512gb on a single Micro SD card is a lot of eggs in one basket.

            Yes but with 4K resolution video and the higher frame rates devices are recording at these days, the "eggs" might be a lot larger than they used to be, so a bigger basket doesn't necessarily hold that many more in many instances.

              @dm01: A good use case for this is adding storage to devices like the Microsoft Surface range of laptops, most of which only have 1 USB port but with a microsd card slot.

              I'd hate to cart an extra ssd around.

    Yikes! Imagine all the files you can store!

    I have this one bought from China cost about $95 six months ago, works perfectly for my switch console. Write speed around 70MB/s and read speed around 90MB/s, but if you do a full disk write, the speed will be a fluctuation between 40MB/s to 70MB/s due to the temperature.

    any 512gb usb drive around this price?

    True story here,bought a few 64GB of these from amazon 2.5 years ago. With 6 months span, they invariably failed in drone, phone and camera. It went from not writable to not readable. Although amazon refunded the whole lot, the loss of footage was invaluable.

    Maybe it was just a one-off bad batch. Make sure you check and back up regularly.

    imagine storing 512 gb of data then losing the tiny thing

    Looks to be $139+$9.9 delivery +1% PayPal surcharge on pc byte website, good deal op.

    Ps: any idea when eBay is getting back onto the Cashback game? They aren’t paying out at the moment. Also, a good buy for those that got their free eBay plus membership from the recent promo, it gives you free returns.

    any thoughts on using this as an extra hard drive on my laptop. i.e. use the SD card slot in my laptop. What would be the best to store on it? Can i run programs off it?

      That’s currently what I do. My MacBook Air came with just 128gb, so I got one of those sd cards that sit flush to the laptop body and chuck a microsd in it. Currently I have a 200gig microsd, will be happy to upgrade to 512 at this price. It’s great to use as warm storage.

      This ones a 512gig. Even by your pricing, Your price per gb is almost the same as op’s. In that case I’d go with op’s as bigger cards tend to be more expensive.

    This seems to be a good price as well, and more reliable

      "Sandisk Ultra" and "reliable". Pick one.

      •  

        I know. All my SanDisks are dead. I barely even use them.

        •  

          Same. Had a 64gb SanDisk die. Bought a new 128gb one. It also died. Went to use the RMA replacement 64GB card, it died after a week.

          Gave up and bought a Samsung, which was noticeably faster and has been running for years now.

    I was looking at putting 512gb micro sdcard in one of these
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/JEDX-Ubox-Mini-WiFi-Wireless...
    But not sure if it can connect to a pc network (creates its own hotspot, works with android/apple via app and plugs into USB port of laptop).

    Anyone got any idea for something simialr (cheap mini file server?), nothing fast needed, just work (txt/doc) files, etc.

  •  

    That will fit alot of StarTrek/SG-1 eps on my phone.

    Just received today, some older colleagues couldn’t believe how this little chip could hold 512 gigs. I got a write speed of 80 and read speed of 90 MB/s. Solid purchase imo. Lifetime warranty too.

    Thanks for the deal op.
