Best Price Now: 64GB Sandisk Extreme PRO UHS-I Class 10 U3 V30 SDXC for $36 with free shipping

We have a new experimental segment (please let us know if you like it or not; your feedback helps shape a lot of what we do and what we don’t do at this blog), the “Best Price Now” segment. This focuses on items that are more of the consumable kind and don’t have big discounts on a regular basis.

If you happen to want/need the 64GB Sandisk Extreme PRO Class 10 UHS-I U3 V30 SDXC memory card, the best price right now is for $36 with free shipping at Adorama.

In terms of GB/$, among this line, which ranges from 16GB to 512GB, the “winner” is the 256GB model going for the very specific price of $125.57 by Amazon itself (it looks like the price-bot price-matching got Amazon to have this price).

If you want to max out on available storage option, the 512GB card goes for $287.55 with free shipping at Adorama.

If your camera does not support UHS-II, then you can get a better bang for the buck and possibly better performance with UHS-I. Check the interwebs and forums for specific cameras + specific card combos as theoretical and real-world performance are not always walking hand in hand into the sunset 🙂
