[Amazon.ca] SanDisk 2.5" SSD 2TB - $202.71, SanDisk microSDXC 400GB - $49.40 - Deal of the Day

Several worthy deals on SanDisk storage. This list goes from good to okay.

2.5" SSD - SanDisk SSD PLUS 2TB Internal SSD - SATA III 6 Gb/s, 2.5"/7mm, Up to 535 MB/s - SDSSDA-2T00-G26
- $202.71

Previous ATL was $219.99. Even though this is not going to be as fast as NVMe drives, $202.71 for 2TB is quite decent.

microSDXC - SanDisk 400GB Ultra microSDXC UHS-I Memory Card with Adapter - 120MB/s, C10, U1, Full HD, A1, Micro SD Card - SDSQUA4-400G-GN6MA
- $49.40

Previous ATL was $59.99. The general deal price for these SanDisk Ultra cards is $20 per 128GB (16c per GB). This price puts this card at 12c per GB.

U1/V10 = sustained write at 10MB/s, good enough for Full HD video recording.

microSDXC - SanDisk 512GB Extreme microSDXC UHS-I Memory Card with Adapter - C10, U3, V30, 4K, A2, Micro SD - SDSQXA1-512G-GN6MA
- $87.41

Previous ATL was $95.56. For a SanDisk Extreme card, this is a decent price. You can get V30 cards for cheaper per GB from a lesser known brand.

U3/V30 = sustained write at 30MB/s, good enough for a majority of 4K video recording.

microSDXC - SanDisk 1TB Ultra microSDXC UHS-I Memory Card with Adapter - 120MB/s, C10, U1, Full HD, A1, Micro SD Card - SDSQUA4-1T00-GN6MA
- $199.49

Previous ATL was $212.79. Cards at this size tend to hover $210+. Price per GB is not great but it's a decent price for 1TB in microSDXC.

SDXC - SanDisk 512GB Extreme PRO SDXC UHS-I Card - C10, U3, V30, 4K UHD, SD Card - SDSDXXY-512G-GN4IN
- $119.23

Previous ATL was $143.98. A very large and fast SD card for your camera. Great for people who do long-form video recording.

CFexpress B - SanDisk 256GB Extreme PRO CFexpress Card Type B - SDCFE-256G-GN4NN
- $367.49

Average price is $441. A good deal for the filmmakers and photographers using CFeB compatible cameras.

Here are the rest. I just posted the deals I think are noteworthy.

Wonder if there'll be a significant difference going Ultra VS Extreme for the Steam Deck

I feel 2TB SSD at almost 200$ is a good price. I am thinking to add one such SSD as internal storage for my Nvidia shield Plex server. Plan is to add around 1TB music file for quick retrieval ( I don’t have NAS).

Does it have cache? My experience with cacheless SSDs is they get very slow after a while even though I never bought into it.

Not a bad deal for the 2tb ssd and 400gb micro sd, but eh, not good enough to impulse buy.

For installing stuff I'm sure, write speeds are 90MB/s vs the 30 of Ultra. Read speeds are more comparable though.

Reliability wise, I've heard a lot of horror stories with Lexar cards. I've never had issues but Lexar threads do bring out a lot of folks with their bad experiences.

Performance wise, you'll need to compare the actual cards or research online. In my experience, SanDisk Extreme series cards perform substantially better than their ratings whereas Lexar cards barely meet the what they're rated for.

They're both rated V30, i.e. 30MB/s minimum write speed. My V30 SanDisk Extreme and Extreme Pros write consistently at 70MB/s. Conversely, my V60 Lexar cards barely meet that minimum.

I agree. The deal is hot if you are in the market for one of these. If it were an NVMe 2TB for this price tho .. Flushed Face

Is there any risks of possibly getting a knock off card? I recall this being an issue a few years back even from amazon.

Not sure if it would be able to take advantage of the Extreme card.
Extreme is also UHS-1: https://www.amazon.ca/SanDisk-Extreme-m ... B07P7M6K35

Good deal at $87, I've used both Ultra and Extreme for large volume writes and the difference is night and day. If I get steam deck will definitely be Extreme.

I don't know if they still co-mingle items like these cards. Regardless, test the read and write speeds to make sure. There is always a possibility. So it's good practice to verify what you receive.

Depends on how many digital games you buy.
