About twenty years ago I paid something like $20 or $30 for my first SD card. It was a 16MB card that could hold roughly four MP3 files.

Today you can pick up a 200GB microSD card for $27, a 256GB card for $33 (with coupon: EMCTAVW47) or a 400GB card for $57.

How things have changed.

Here are some of the day’s best deals. Now excuse me while I go try to figure out which song I had on that SD card…

  1. I never had a card as small as 4mb. The first I had was 16mb. I recall having (what I thought would be) the biggest memory card in the world. It was a 4gb IBM Microdrive (it was a spinning platter HDD inside a CF card). This was back in the day of 512mb cards being the limit.

    I shucked it from an MP3 player, and formatted it. I think the FAT formatting requirements of my digital camera prevented me from using all 4gb. I had to format it to 2gb or something.

    1. You know what? I think I might have a 16MB card that stored 4 songs, now that I think about it.

      I did also have a 4GB microdrive. I was so excited to be able to store so much data in my Dell Axim PDA!

      1. Yes I used mine eventually on an old iPaq. I used it to store all my Sierra point-and-click adventure games that I ran on ScummVM

      2. Cool – I had one of those too. Quite incredible what it could do in those days. I still have it around back at my parents house and I’m sure it would boot up like nothing happened.

      3. Woh, I used a 4GB microdrive in my Axim, too! And not just any Axim, the X50v, the first PocketPC to have a VGA-resolution screen!

    2. I still remember those 32 MB multimedia cards from my nokia days. My first SD card was a 512 MB that I bought for about $130 to use in my HP Ipaq.

      1. I had one of those ipaqs too, – but was just as disappointed with it as I was with the Apple Newton, some years before.
        – But I’m finally satisfied now with My Samsung Note. It only took 20 years to get a handheld that can adaquately work as well as a notepad and paper in addition to having PC apps!
