Default [Q] 64GB micro SD?

Has anyone tried a 64GB microSD card in the Galaxy Tab 7 Plus?

I have a class 10 32GB one in there at the moment, but at 37 for a 64GB I'd love to expand it further, but I don't want to pay out for one if it doesn't work!

Does anyone know if 32GB is the most it will take, or can I get a 64GB one?

I would believe the 7.0 maxes out at 32GB. 64GB is SDXC, which isn't listed on any spec sheets, only SD and SDHC.

Sorry, Google Shopping showed 37 as a price for a 64GB MicroSD, but when I got round to actually looking properly, it was an incorrectly labelled standard SD card.

Amazon are however selling them for 60 now, which means the price is coming down slowly!

amazon were nocking them out at 42 last week - I only bought one because I didn't believe it was genuine, even though they were supplied by amazon I was still suspicious. I wish I had taken a chance and ordered 2 or 3, because sure enough they are genuine sandisk cards and work well in all my devices - that's my tab, my xperia arc s and my Archos 70 IT2, I wish I'd bought one for each

Unhappy Be careful of Class 10 or UHS 1 cards!

Just wanted to post a follow-up in this thread. At the time of these messages, the Class 6 cards were out, and it appears that they do work.

However, it's now September, and Class 10 cards are out, and they DO NOT work. The GT 7.7 people discovered (and I just "accidentally" confirmed on my stock ICS P6210) that Class 10 64GB cards get irreparably damaged when used on our Tabs. I have Class 10 cards in my S3 and Galaxy Note, and they're fine, but my P6210 just ate one on the first large file write - as has been seen on the 7.7 tabs as well!.

See http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1460201&page=7 and other posts for reference.

I've just ordered a Class 6 64GB card from Amazon, and expect no problems with it - but be warned that many people are having problems with the Class 10 cards, on the 7.7 and (now) the 7.0+ tabs.

FWIW, YMMV...
