Feed your DAPs (EU edition): 200GB Sandisk micro SDXC for 26e

Amazon Germany is helping you feed your DAPs, PADs and other smartphones/tablets and devices that can take 200GB microSD cards because they are now offering, in new condition, the 200GB SAndisk Ultra micro-SDXC for 26 euro. There’s no purchase quantity limit. IT is not part of their gold-box, so there is no baked-in expiration time ~ in other words the price can go up or down or stay the same. Only Amazon’s AI Price-Bots can tell 🙂

PS: make sure your device(s) are practically-compatible with 200GB cards, not just spec-sheet compatible. Meaning look for other users on the web and in the forums who have been using them and have not experienced any problems or issues…

Feed your DAPs: 128GB Samsung microSDXC for $21

Time to feed the pets BUT also feed your DAPs and PADs and tablets and smartphones and such. The 128GB Samsung EVO Select micro-SDXC memory card is currently on sale for $21 by Amazon actual. If you want less storage, the 64GB option goes for $11, or if you want lots more, the 256GB option goes for $48…

Wednesday: Feed your DAPs, Backup your FLACs!

Humans need to eat every day but the DAPs and PADs are not that hungry. But they must needs eat too, so if they need feeding, there’s a big Sandisk storage sale at the Amazon USA Gold Box daily deals running until Thursday FEB-28 in 2019 at 3am ET. The sale includes the 200GB Sandisk Ultra microSD card for $29.21 and the 400GB for $62.30. The 200GB is the bang for the buck of the two. But regardless, make sure your DAPs/PADs are compatible and perform as expected with them before buying them. This especially if you have older devices or devices without newer firmware updates.

On the FLAC (and other digital music) storage front, the sale also includes a vast variety of USB flash drives, conventional, tiny, and double-sided (connector wise that is). On top of that, there’s a sale on various Western Digital [which has purchased Sandisk a few months ago] external and gaming hard drives up to 10TB [that’s a lot of music].

And if you prefer SSD style storage, an external G-Technology USB flash drive that is advertised as more durable goes for $168.

You can buy up to two of each individual offering ~ or as many their shopping cart lets you buy 🙂

Feed the EU DAPs: 128GB Samsung EVO Plus microSD for 23 euro

For audiophiles shopping in the EU, Amazon Germany has dropped the price of the new condition 128GB Samsung EVO Select microSD to 23 euro and you can buy up to five cards at the sale price. It is not a lightning deal, so you can buy as many as you like. It has many buzzword features (various element-proofs, SD adapter included, Class 10, U3, etc, etc, etc)…

There is some confusion as to the difference between these red/white cards and the green Select. The internet consensus appears to be that the green Select cards are simply exclusive rebrands for Amazon. This allows Amazon to set and adjust pricing without having to deal with the whole MAP song and dance.

As always, if you have older devices, make sure they are compatible with 128GB cards before you buy them. And by compatible I don’t just mean that it’s mentioned so in the manual, but you search in the forums to make sure actual people using them in actual devices have no problems or performance issues with them…

Feed your DAPs: 400GB Sandisk Ultra microSDXC for $79

If your DAP or smartphone or other devices are compatible with 400GB devices [and by compatible I don’t mean just this written in the specs page, but also proven in the forums by actual users], at the moment Amazon is offering the new condition 400GB Sandisk Ultra microSDXC card for $79 with free shipping. You can buy as many as you like. This is also marked an “A1” (of interest to PADs and phones/tablets) and Class 10 and UHS-I. A full size adapter is also included but by now you probably have a drawer full of them 🙂

Feed your DAPs (EU): 256GB Sandisk Ultra microSD for 45 euro [or 200GB for 36 euro]

We have an EU edition of “Feed your DAPs” at Amazon Germany offering the new condition 256GB Sandisk Ultra microSDXC for 45 euro with free shipping to Germany. On the same listing, you can also see the 200GB version for 36 euro…

Sat: feed your DAP with a 512GB microSD?

If so, among the Saturday deals of the day at the Amazon USA Gold-Box there is a sale on over 15 PNY storage products. One of them is their 512GB memory card going for $240. As it is often the case, the highest storage option has a price premium to it… Also part of the sale are SD (full size) cards, along with many and more conventional and unconventional USB 3.x and 2.0 flash drives… Sales end at 11:59pm pacific on Sat 12/29/18 as usual..

Feed your DAPs/PADs: 128GB Samsung microSD for $20

As of the time of writing, the 128GB SAmsung EVO Select microSDXC memory card is on sale for $20 per card, with up to five pairs per customer by Amazon actual. The other storage options are also available at good prices, but the 128GB wins on $/GB…

200GB Sandisk Ultra microSDXC for $65 [updated]

This sale ended: If your DAP or PAD supports 400GB microSD cards, the 400GB Sandisk Ultra microSDXC card is on sale again, going for $180 with free shipping by Amazon actual. Especially of interest if you have FLAC and ALAC and WAV files and such…

If you don’t need that much on a single card, the 200GB version (A1) goes for $65 ~ this of course doesn’t help if your DAP/PAD has only one microSD slot (unless you don’t object to switching memory cards – not a very good idea for smartphones though unless you use them exclusively for music and media storage and you block other apps from using them)…

Feed the DAPs/PADs: 200GB Sandisk Ultra microSDXC for $60
