Just when you thought the storage capacities of Micro SD cards could not get any better they have gone and did it again with an even larger capacity version of the SD card in the form of the Sandisk Ultra 200GB which is an impressive feat to say the least with the former max capacity being 128 GB. Can you imagine that? all of 200 GB in a SD card that no larger than my fingernail is possible right now and this of course is making my old 32 GB SD card which are really cheap right now and are at the sweet spot in terms of price look smaller than they ever were.
The Sandisk Ultra 200GB
The Sandisk ultra 200gb is great for those who want a high-capacity solution for their Tablets, Smartphones and other devices although seeing that this capacity is new we have to contend with paying a premium right now to enjoy such large capacities in such a compact form factor. It’s a Class 10 device and is very fast and Sandisk is the first to market a SD card with such a high storage capacity.
What can 200 GB give you in raw storage real world needs?

At the end of the day what this means for the consumer is that we can finally take a tun load of pictures and video on our portable devices and cameras at very high quality without worrying about space restrictions. There is nothing worse than having for example a high-end mobile phone with you and dialing back on the picture quality to save space or cutting your video footage short.
