    Hi All,

    I am in the market for either a 16GB or 32GB micro SD card.

    Where are you currently buying from either online or in Auckland?

    Thanks in advance,

    Sorry, read your post but don't have an answer for you. I'm not buying and
    don't know of a good place to buy.

    Yep - I should have mentioned I'd already tried PriceSpy.

    As of this morning, the best price on a SanDisk 16GB Micro-SD is
    $118.05 ($7.38 / GB). There are no 32GB listed, but the 8GB is $33.95
    ($4.24 / GB) and no brand mentioned. I can also get a Kingston 8GB
    for $45 or a Kingston 16GB for $113, so not much difference between
    those brands although slightly less differential in price per GB.

    I guess that the market for 16GB (and 32GB) is just not there yet,
    hence the almost doubling in price per GB from 8GB to 16GB.

    I also looked on DealExtreme.com, but I couldn't find any Micro-SD
    cards on there. Is that just my bad searching, or do they not sell
    storage media at all?

    I guess I'll go with 8GB for now and wait a couple of years for them
    to give away 64GB ones in boxes of cornflakes ;-)

    Thanks Woger.

    Their pricing is slightly better (about 10% cheaper) that I have found
    anywhere else so far.

    Have you used them? Are they okay?
