A 400GB microSD card – now that’s Extremely big

SanDisk, A Western Digital Company, has released the 400GB EXTREME microSD UHS-I card.

The card will work in any microSDXC slot although you will need the latest Android or Windows device to achieve the 160/90MB/s read and write speeds. It will also work in drones, security cameras and IoT devices.

Videographers can capture 4K UHD with its Class 3 (U3) and Video Speed Class 30 (V30) ratings. The card also features the A2 specification to help quickly launch and load apps.

The cards are shockproof, temperature-proof, waterproof, and X-ray-proof. They come with an SD card adaptor and limited lifetime warranty.

Our expertise in flash memory and microSD card electronics enables us to achieve unmatched performance. The breakthrough SanDisk microSD card is evidence of Western Digital’s commitment to delivering more advanced solutions that enable data to thrive,” said Jim Welsh, senior vice president and general manager, Client Solutions, Western Digital.
