Still with the misleading picture, after all this? cmon!
+ 1 to anyone who's also pointed out this is disappointing to see a blatant bait & switch for this 512 GB microSD with the 128GB card's price listed...

Oh wow. That's messed up. I was about to get pissed off because I had recently bought a v30 128 GB micro sd card for $40.
I will never purchase a drop where the product image is intentionally misleading. Vote with your wallet!

Yeah it showed the highest sized sdxc you can purchase for additional costs, which they have similar for many hard drive, memory, or storage products.
That is some marketing for you. 512 for $35, wow! WRONG!!!
another drop from massdrop that can't be ship to my country because it has BIG BUILT IN BATTERY!!! :p DUH!!!
The ole switcheroo
>At checkout, choose the 128B microSD card I'm gonna need like a billion of these...
Watch this be 512 MB because it doesn't say GB
Just wait 6 months...the 512 will be $39.99.
Ok, real talk for a second... did anyone *actually* think they were gonna be able to buy a 512GB microSD card for $40? I’m not sure you can even get an older SATA SSD at that price point, nevermind a microSD card. Especially with Samsung dropping 256GB microSD cards on here for $100.
There should be some way to report deliberately misleading drops like this.

You just did.
Outside of the usual pricing oddity, what I find most surprising about this is how this appears to be the first retail listing of the product, so there's no way to know the actual retail price at this point in time.
I have been a long time member of massdrop and with the exception of a couple mistakes in their descriptions of products massdrop has been a reliable place to shop. Having said that I can't stand the bait and switch advertising on this. If your going to show the 512 for $39.99 that's what it should be. 👎👎🤮 Be better than this massdrop.
So what exactly are we actually going to receive if we buy it???

The product listed is the correct specs and represented properly in the photo as well. http://www.adata.com/en/specification/590 Speed Class UHS Speed : UHS-I U3 Speed Class : Class 10 Video Speed Class : V30 R / W performance - 100MB/85MB per sec
B.Hutch@AKRacing
Class 10 10 MB/s U3 and V30 are 30 MB/s Can't be both lol
Why is the 512GB model on every piece of marketing for this drop, when the 128GB is the base model? Put the base model on the marketing since that's what the actual price comes from...

And I just noticed what you said, thanks! No deal!

Ten weeks later, zero fucks given in a rather typical massdrop fashion.
I came here to make fun of the marketing team for putting "Gaming" on this... Then I noticed the price is cheaper than what I paid for my U3 256 card... but then I noticed the SPECS These are U1 cards, but the images are of a U3 device. ----- edit---- apparently UHS-I refers to the "bus speed"... This is a U3 device. The people that came up with the naming standards just didn't realize U1 and UHS-I are easily confused.

Wow, they really didn't think that through when they came up with their naming conventions.

Software engineer here, the bus refers to the host/slot side and is the maximum possible throughput available. I'm pretty sure they're all electrically compatible, so it basically acts like an upper speed limit. Speed class is card side and is a guarantee for minimum specs, i.e. we guarantee it will be at least this fast. So in a nutshell, Bus speed is speed limit, speed class is guaranteed performance. You can think of it like the bus is a highway and the cars on it all have classes like economy (slow), luxury (average) and performance (fast). Alternatively, you can think of bus like PCI-e standards (2.0 and 3.0) and speed class is how many lanes your GPU uses, like x8 and x16. It's confusing because no one in this field knows how to name stuff and we love acronyms. Sorry.
