Transformer 32gb vs 16gb?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to decide which to get. I want to throw about 22 GB of music/comics/books on there so I was considering just getting the 32 Gb version so I can have it all in one place.

How fast is the internal flash?
How much space does honeycomb itself take up?

I do plan to get the dock. I'm not sure which SD or Micro SD cards to get since I haven't looked into them too much.

I'm thinking if it is really high quality flash it might be worth the 32 in my case. However, it is functionally no different than buying a 32 Gb SD or SDHC card then I'll just do that. Though I'd prefer to go with SDHC so that it is always in the tablet regardless of dock status.

Maybe at 150 the dock should've included some extra storage...

IMO its always better to have more space than you'll need than to need more space and not be able to add it - I would just get the 32GB - It will be nice to have a bit of room to store everything you have instead of having to be super selective

It is $100 for 16GB more.... It has a micro-SD slot though. A 16GB micro-SD card is only $20 or 32GB for $50?

Yeah, I would go with 16GB and get SD to double the storage. Then utilize online storage stuff like dropbox,skydrive, etc...for the rest.

Any recommendations for some good Micro SDHC cards? I was looking at SanDisk SDSDQM-032G-B35A or ADATA AUSDH32GCL4-RM3BKBL

I am thinking the Micro vs Standard because if I have to wait a week or two to find/afford the dock I can use it in the tablet itself. That and if I ever get a smart phone I could take the music out of the tablet and into the phone.

I like the SanDisk since I could use the adapter and plug it into the tablet OR the dock. I like the ADATA since I could use the USB to plug it into the tablet, dock, or my desktop. (I don't have a card reader yet.) I also considered this, but it is out of stock and the colors are ugly. I'm mostly looking for an adapter that doesn't stick out too far if I feel like leaving it in while walking around - but that won't fall apart like the super tiny Kingston ones.
