Honestly, I can't imagine ever spending that much on a mem card, even if I thought I could actually fill up 32GB. My Backflip gets here in a few days, so I'm going to go pick up an 8GB for probably 20 bucks. Total cost for phone and card: $20.01.
Sandisk sent me an email this morning to let me know that my 32GB microSDHC card has shipped!
As for the price of the card, there is only one company manufacturing them at this time and $200 is the price if you want to get one. There is no right or wrong choice with regard to the size of the microSDHC card you buy for your Backflip.
Its all good!
I'll be using the 32BG microSDHC card for the pictures I'll be taking with the phone and to hold a lot of jazz music. I'm also sure that as time goes by, I'll find other uses for the space on the card that I have not considered yet.
My Sandisk 32GB microSDHC memory card just arrived this morning!
Yep, I'm one happy puppy now!
Gratz, Phred. I know you're happy. New toys always do that to me, too.
32GB is a lot and $200 is a lot, too. But you're the only one who can say whether or not it's worth it to you. And I'm pretty sure that the 32GB will seem like a whole lot less space in a year or two than it does today. That's the way those things usually go.
Personally, I spent $80 for a 16GB card but I did think about the 32GB card before I made up my mind. Right now I've got about 2.5GB music and maybe another 1.3GB video stored on my phones SD card. And that's only after a few weeks with it.
You can also use it as ad hoc storage for some of your other PC files for when you might want to take them back and forth from the office to home or maybe to a friends house or whatever. And don't forget that you can also use the space on your phone for backup of some of your PC files, too.
So I went to Fry's today to get an 8GB micro SD card. I was originally going to get a Class 4 that was on sale for $18, but I ended up getting a Class 6 for $27. Afterward I was feeling a lot of buyer's remorse, since the difference in speed is probably not even going to be noticeable, but then I remembered that phred spent $200. Now I feel silly for worrying over 9 bucks.
