    Honestly, that price is reasonable considering how massive that amount of storage is in such a tiny form factor. That's also pretty decent performance for an SD card. It wasn't that long ago when we had 1TB SATA and PCIe SSDs for the same price (though, they were a lot faster).

    I thin that's a good price also for such a massive storage space, probably price will fall in short time, i remember when 32gb mSD were like the ultimate storage, i bought one for a fortune, today those just cost 5 bucks

    It still amazes me to no end how on earth we could store such quantity of information on such small piece of technology.
    I remember the day when @Hilbert Hagedoorn foresaw the whole SSD development and benched some weird SSD made out of flash cards.
    Anyone remembers that?

    Thank Area 51 <s>.

    Back in the 90's I was talking with a friend's father one day. We were talking about computer tech and we got to the size of hard drive storage. I mentioned how I thought 90MB drive I was eyeballing was huge amount of storage space in such a small package. o_O He told me which I didn't even know, never asked, that the company he worked for (retired) was in the early R&D of magnetic disc storage & when he left, their "platter" was bigger then an album and held I think he said kilobytes. I think it would be funny to lay this micro card on top of one of those platters for comparison. Captioned "One of these can hold a Terabyte of data. Which one?"
