5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable, April 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: SanDisk Mobile Ultra microSDXC Class 6 Flash Memory Card (619659070076) (Personal Computers)
Maybe I am dating myself, but the first computer in my family had an 80Mb hard drive and we thought things were great with that (an old Mac with an add on external CD-ROM playing Myst). The fact that this chip holds 64Gb and is no bigger than your thumbnail is astounding. I have not had any compatibility issues, but that is one reason for buying a name brand like Sandisk. In case you haven't noticed, there is a difference between SDHC and SDXC the newer XC is an even higher capacity format that doesn't always work in HC designed slots. Also I have not filled it up yet, so I will see if there are any issues once it starts to fill up and update this review if there are. I could have almost bought three 32 Gb models for this money, but with only one slot and how small these are its just not worth the risk of losing any or the hassle of pulling them out for swapping around. This basically doubles the drive space I have in a samsung series 7 slate and made me feel comfortable buying a used slate with only the 64 Gb internal drive (the Samsung S7 slate with windows 8 is the absolute future of computing BTW, with a core i5, touch interface, and full desktop it replaces tabs, pads, netbooks, and notebooks with one device. Sorry I didn't buy new from Amason or i would place these opinions in their own review...). The faster internal drive hosts programs and the OS while this thing holds videos, music, and other files and does a great job. I have noticed transfer speeds around 6 Mb/sec in Windows 8 CP (the transfer rate flowing chart in windows 8 is genius). This is good enough for playing HD videos (720p, haven't tried 1080p), but I have seen my wireless N 5 Ghz band connection transfer from a networked hard drive to the slate's internal SSD drive faster (about 9 Mb/sec). I wouldn't expect something like this to keep up with an SSD though, however 15 years ago I would not have expected 64Gb to be this small... :)

Thanks for the review. Just so you know, you can review the slate on amazon even though it was not purchased on the site.

BT-dubs, it is perfectly natural to date oneself.

I'd say I date myself at least once a day... so there's no need to apologize or feel guilty about doing so yourself.

Otherwise, nice review!
