SanDisk's first 1TB micro-SD card can now be purchased

The world's first 1TB microSD card is finally on sale at a slightly lower price than expected

1TB Sandisk microSD cards now available, but at a price

Amazon US has a product listing, meaning you will soon be able to buy it via Amazon in the US. The best part is SanDisk's new 1TB microSD card is water proof, shock proof, and X-ray proof.

The company said at the time the card would be available in April, but The Verge noticed that it has taken until now for it to actually hit retailers. It is capable of delivering 4K Ultra HD recording and playback and offers transfer speeds of up to 90MB. Feel free to capture and record longer hi-res videos without having to worry about running out of space. It can also weather different environmental conditions. But, make no mistake, 1TB of storage in a tiny card isn't cheap. It may be hard to fill up but we know it's not impossible.

The product page, reported earlier by Tom's Guide, notes read speeds up to 90MB/s and write speeds up to 60MB/s, which is a little slower than the world's fastest flash memory option that SanDisk promised at MWC.

The Extreme 1TB card retails for $449 ($0.45/GB) on Sandisk's site, with a 512GB version costing $199 ($0.39/GB) - no discount for quantity here.

If you simply can't wait, the card - which is officially titled as the SanDisk 1TB Extreme microSD XC UHS-I Memory Card with a model number of SDSQXA1-1T00-GN6MA - still appears to be in stock at SanDisk. Lifetime warranty in regions not recognizing "limited" warranty.
