[CW] SanDisk Unleashes World's First 128GB microSD Card - Page 6

The OS displays capacity using the binary measurement gibibytes, which is 1024 mebibytes, which is 1024 kibibytes, which is 1024 bytes. 119GiB = 128GB. Formatting the drive doesn't take up 9GB of space.

Sorry for the rant. Windows and now Android really irritate me by essentially saying binary prefix = SI prefix. How much did it cost and would you say it is worth it? Glad to see these are finally out.

? Ok that was interesting. Let's just say it has a lot and leave it at that smile.gif

I have a bunch of small micro SD cards that I travel with but it was really nice to get one card that consolidates the storage (plus I lost a 32GB micro SD on a plane one time when it fell somewhere on the floor).

I travel a great deal and having the space in hand for video is quite nice. It's not really cost effective, 64GB cards sell for around $45 but it's an install it and forget it card. I won't need to buy another any time soon thumb.gif

It's on my "list o' things I deem irritating that most people don't care about." wink.gif My only real concern with super-high density drives like this is just how little room for error there is. It just seems like they're inherently more fragile, but I don't have any numbers to support or refute this. But yeah, you won't need to replace it for a very long time.

It is not technically wrong, and it's more than 24GB. It's multiplicative. 1KiB is 1.024 times the size of 1KB. 1MiB is 1.024^2 times larger than 1MB. 1GB is 1.024^3 times... Using base ten to measure storage for anything other than hard disks is moronic though. NAND and RAM are made in powers of 2 of bits, not powers of 10.

It is deceptive. I know not a single person who goes to the store to buy a "gibibyte" anything. They go to buy a gigabyte something. Yet the manufacturer can get away with doing this and in really small letters they define a GB as "1000 megabytes" when that is not what consumers are there to buy.

My motherboard has a msata slot on the front, thought I think it only works with the Inter Smart Reponse. If or if not the case, it just means it can be done and isn't too difficult to implement.

Which is fine as long as the SSD doesn't fail. If/when it does...

The way most mSATA slots are implemented, it just disables one of the SATA ports if you install a mSATA SSD. The chipset just treats it as another hard drive/SSD. Nothing special to run.
