Sony 128GB SDXC UHS-I U3 Card for $69.95 – Deal Alert

Sony 128GB SDXC Speed Class 3 Memory Card

B&H has the Sony 128GB SDXC UHS-I Speed Class 3 memory card for $69.95 (reg. $121.95). This card has a max read speed of 94MB/s and a max write speed of 45MB/s. Compare this model to Sony’s lower tier 128GB SDXC UHS-1 card, which offers only a max read speed of 40MB/s but there’s no details on the max write speed. The lower tier card is also on sale but is only $3 cheaper.

You want the Speed Class 3 card for $69.95. These cards with Speed Class 3 ratings are compatible for 4K recording in cameras like the Panasonic GH4 and LX100.

You can see both cards for the sake of comparison here at B&H Photo. However, if you are buying one, get the card that says 94MB/s on the front. For $3 more at these sale prices, it is a heckuva deal.

Note that this deal expires November 19.
