Generally, SD cards come in memory capability of varying quantities. A common memory size for these cards is 1 gigabyte (GB). However, microSD cards are also available in capacities of 128 megabytes (MB), 256 MB, 512 MB, and 2 GB. The more data the card holds, the more expensive it will be.

This newest microSD card by SanDisk features a enormous 400GB of space while remaining small in size. It is called the SanDisk microSXDC USH-I. That huge storage of 400GB in a microSD card also commands a hefty price tag of $250.00 a card.

MicroSD cards are usually used in portable electronic devices to store data in a way that is portable. This is includes devices such as mobile phones, portable global positioning system (GPS) devices, and video and audio players and recorders. One of the primary formats for these portable memory sources is a microSD card, which is one of the smallest flash memory cards on the market.

Western Digital, the company which owns the SanDisk brand, claims that the card has a transfer speed of up to 100MB/s, which is good enough to transfer 1,200 pictures per minute.

The card will run you a hefty $250, and if that isn’t enough, there is a 512Gb card in the works that may have a $1,000 price tag.
