    You have that backwards. Company XYZ is selling the item and Amazon is fulfilling the sales channel request for that business.

    That's how marketplace works.

    It's a typo that changes the fundamentals of the situation however, and I think underlines a basic misunderstanding that's happening here.

    Amazon is currently out of stock on the item...so it's defaulting to a marketplace seller, not Amazon themselves as the default option.

    When Amazon has stock of the item again it will default to Amazon for that page, and list the price Amazon has for the item.


    So if Amazon is still selling it for the price originally listed in this thread, then it will default back to that price. As it stands right now, Company XYZ does have stock sitting in a warehouse controlled by Amazon, and Amazon is just handling the packing and shipping. Company XYZ owns the actual 'stock' being sold.

    Make sense? :)

    Make perfect sense to me. Also I have no issues with being corrected. Accuracy is always worth striving for.

    I still wouldn't pay $229.99 though and Amazon is (for now) listing this as the preferred option when someone goes to look for the product. Most people won't care when looking to buy the product that it is now coming from reseller XYZ vs. directly from an Amazon warehouse. All they are liable to care about is that the price went up 91%. others might be OK with it. Either way it's worth knowing.

    Thanks. It's nice to chat with someone who understands and doesn't think I'm being a jerk simply because I'm straight-forward. :)

    I agree. I wouldn't pay $229.99 either. I was being hopeful that for those who want this product that Amazon gets stock back in at the same price as before.

    I'm personally holding out for an Extreme Plus version of this :)

    Almost a power-rush isn't it?

    About a month in now and I'm just thrilled about no longer being concerned about running out of space on my 1520 while doing the things I want to. Again, not everyone needs that much room but for those who do, a little 128GB love (plus a 6" screen) really do change the dynamics of what a mobile device can do.

    Did place an order for it on Amazon on March 27, and it is still out of stock with May 6-17 delivery estimate. Huge problems with getting stock I guess. Do someone know from where the supply chain goes from for that card? Since such long wait time can only mean the chain is going on a ship through the Pacific...

    Seeing as how the release of this card was seriously behind the Moore's law schedule, I can only guess that there's a tremendous backlog of demand for it.

    My order for the SanDisk Ultra 128 GB microSDXC card from Amazon on March 11 is now preparing for shipment. I placed an order for another on April 7th, it is not going anywhere right now.

    Just thought I would provide a point in the order/fulfillment timeline for others that may have ordered the card. It might help set some expectations as to where they are in the queue. Or it might upset you if you ordered before me and still see no movement.

    I also ordered mine on March 11 & this evening I got a shipping confirmation with tracking number. Scheduled for delivery this Friday.

    @Ray Adams, great to know its fast enough and (big enough) to handle 1520 video without stuttering. Can't wait.

    It was same here, I downloaded over 10gb of music one day. Other than that, I had around 200gbs of music. Adding Hawkwind, it increased by 50gbs or so, lol.

    Ask ye shall receive:

    I found the test results from the App kind of interesting and I suspect that the Bus is a big limiting factor since I know on a fast interface the card can do (and does) considerably better.

    (Thanks for the App suggestion BTW, Been looking for something like that - Michael)

    Attachment 59326

    I tried this app and HIGHLY recommend it for the other features but I tend to doubt the accuracy of the sd card test, I have a $7 16GB PNY class 4 card and it said my speed was 18.37 Mbps, it also said my lumia 1520 phone memory clocked about 28Mbps.

    I don't think so, but you can use your phone or computer to format as exFAT. I do know it works in the 1520... If you read from the beginning of this thread you will see others who have it.

    UPDATE:

    I received shipping notice from Amazon Monday the 28th and received the card on Tuesday the 29th!! That's awesome!! I copied everything off of my old Sandisk 64Gig Ultra and then copied it over to my new 128Gig card. Well, that didn't work. My 1520 knew the programs were on the card but it would not open them. I also could not see photos or play music. So, I did a hard reset with a card format and started from scratch.

    After getting everything set back up, which is super easy now on 8.1, I ran a few programs. They loaded much faster than my old 64Gig card and game play was seamless. No problems what so ever with apps or games. On to taking a few photos. I used to have some bad lag after snapping a shot with the 64Gig card. That is all gone now. I changed my setting to save to the device just to test the speed there and I could not notice a difference. My next test was video recording which was terrible with the 64Gig card. Works perfect now with the 128Gig card!! No stutter at all and super clear video. I haven't had a chance to test a low light video and audio recording yet but we have a local concert coming up and I'll try it there.

    All in all, this was one of the best purchases I've made in a very long time!! I would recommend anyone using a Sandisk 64Gig Ultra card in their phone to by the 128Gig and use the 64Gig in something else.

    I am going to try cloning my 64GB card to the 128GB to see if it works that way. Amazon says it should be here by Monday..

    I'm also pretty interested in this card that just came out today by Samsung http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electr...pUvbUpU2511667
    Very impressive speeds but hopefully we'll see a 128gb version as the pro card series linked is only 64gb..

    I'm also pretty interested in this card that just came out today by Samsung Amazon.com: Samsung Electronics 64GB PRO Micro SDXC with Adapter Upto 90MB/s Class 10 Memory Card (MB-MG64DA/AM): Computers & Accessories
    Very impressive speeds but hopefully we'll see a 128gb version as the pro card series linked is only 64gb..
    Yeas, that's a really impressive speed, but the era of 64GB is over. Samsung need to get the finger out and resale a 128GB card with similar speed.
    I have been holding off the "trigger" in anticipation of SanDisk Extreme (Plus) 90 MB/s 128GB in near future, but the 128GB version of this Samsung could be a good alternative too.

    Earlier, in WP 8.0 time, the speed wasn't so important. Any SD card that could record HD video (without shuttering) would be a great card. But now with WP8.1 the read speed is important, because it can affect the performance of Apps (specialty data-transfer intensive Apps) installed on the SD card.

    What video format did you use for testing? 1080 & 30fps?

    I'd be surprised if it didn't. This is mostly an issue of whether windows will support it.

    I put my SanDisk 128GB MicroSD into my Surface Pro today. No probs whatsoever.
    I'm going to test in my Lumia 2520 this weekend.
