Sweet spot for microSD moving from 16 to 32GB


It is incredible sometimes how prices fall. Just a few months ago the sweet spot for pricing was the 16GB microSD card. You could get those for about $10. Now the pricing curve for a Class 10/UHS-1 (so a decently fast card at 10MBps) is:

  • 8GB: $8
  • 16GB: $9-12. Amazon seems to have really low prices at the low end but Newegg is the high end
  • 32GB: $15-18. Newegg is much closer to Amazon.
  • 64GB: $32

So on a cost per bit basis, the $15 32GB is really (just by a hair) the new sweet spot 🙂
