The Micron c200 is 1TB of microSD Beastly Data Storage

Micron, with the corporate office based in Boise Idaho, introduces the c200 microSD card with a data storage range from 128GB to 1TB.  No that wasn’t a typo, One Terabyte of storage.  The card was designed to address the demand around 4K video recording and playback. 

The card has read speeds near 100MB/s and write speeds of near 95MB/s.  The c200 card collection can reach these speeds because of Dynamic SLC cache; which is intelligent maintenance during idle time for sustained peak performance.  The Micron microSD card uses the UHS-1 Speed Class 3 for capture and Video Speed Class 30 for support.  Meaning to get these transfer rates, the host device must also be UHS-1 compliant.

In case you are wondering, the card uses Micron 98-layer 3D QLC NAND memory, which is cost effective for both consumers and commercial customers.

If you have an Android device, you can be even happier with the card meeting the Application Performance Class 2 specification which is built-in memory expansion for compatible Android devices.

The Application Performance Class 2 (A2) is defined by the Secure Digital (SD) Physical 6.0 specification. A2 makes SD memory cards higher performance devices than A1 devices by using functions of the Command Queuing and Cache framework. The Application Performance Class can be applied to UHS SDHC/SDXC Memory Card product family.

Lexar Intro’s New 1TB SD Card 10 Years After 1GB SD Card

Almost fifteen years ago Lexar announced it’s first 1GB SD card. Today Lexar announces their first 1TB SD card. My, how times have changed. A one GB card ten years ago cost about $125 and difficult to find at that capacity. The 1TB card announced today is $499.

If the price difference isn’t a big enough shock to you, consider the storage capacity increased this much, yet the form factor of the SD card has not changed.

This new Lexar card is a Class 10 device with transfer speeds over 95MB per second. Ideal for newer cameras capturing video in 4K.

You know a product is a great idea when a couple of pictures describe the entire product. With that in mind, we’ve all seen wall outlet USB charges, but the Snap Power, in my opinion, will rule them all. The design is clever. Installation is ultra-easy. Accessibility supersedes all others. Take a second and just look at it:

In my mind there are three things which make this a brilliant wall charger. If you don’t mind me walking you through the obvious, here we go.

Or skip the highlights and jump right over to their website:

The design is brilliant. The User keeps both outlets available for normal use while a sleek looking USB port is added underneath. At the time of this article there is one USB socket, but visiting their website you can see two sockets, one on either side. They are constantly improving.

Installation is very easy. Simply unscrew your current face-plate and replace it with the Snap Power face-plate. You can see from the picture below the screws used on the outlet behind the face-plate is what provides the juice for the Snap Power USB port. They have a patent on this, so it’s definitely a fresh idea.

I think the final point on why this USB charger is the end-all, be-all is the slim design. Take a look at
