Lexar Begins Shipping  64GB And 128GB SDXC Cards

At CES last January, Lexar announced Class 10 SDXC cards boasting capacities of 64GB and 128GB and today the mighty pair have begun shipping.

The Lexar Professional 133x SDXC Cards will be like mana to professional photographers or videographers who are constantly running out of space for their high definition content. The two cards boast transfer speeds of 20Mb per second, which while not the fastest we’ve seen, is certainly respectable and when combined with the huge capacities, we imagine there won’t be many people complaining. Shipping with a limited lifetime guarantee and the latest Image Rescue software for further peace of mind, we can see these cards being quite popular.

"The professional photography industry is at a point where digital photo- and video-capture methods are converging, meaning that professional shooters need a memory solution with the versatility and reliability to safely store both photos and videos," said Pachi Chen-Wong, senior product marketing manager, Lexar Media. The 64GB and 128GB Lexar Professional SDXC cards are now available from Lexar’s website priced at $199.99 and $329.99 respectively.

Damn. 128GB. Still remember buying an 8MB CF card for my Psion 5 ... didn't cost much different to the 64GB card.

@gagagaga: indeed...

Anyway, this might partly explain why SDHC cards seemed to have dropped pricewise online: seen a Class 6 Lexar Premium 16Gb SDHC for 16GBP incl P&P. Which is pretty good for most consumer use!

And I remember the days when a 1.44mb floppy disk seemed to hold everything that I needed.

Floppy disk? Was all punched card in my day ;-)

Out of curiosity can any of you clever people tell me if these can be used as an SSD?

Now they are pricy so a pure ssd is probably cheaper, just curious.

20MBs is very slow to be use as an SSD.
