for speed, you can get 64gigs at 90R 80W for $81.40

http://www.amazon.com/Lexar-High-Per...+64gb+micro+sd



for size buy the 128GB sandisk

http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-MicroS...+micro+sd+card



For price per gig, buy a bunch of 8, 16, and 32gig used ones on ebay and one of these credit card shaped microsd holders

If youre feeling ambitious, you can put micro to regular sd adapter in there and put a 256gig card in

Maybe Amazon is showing us different things - but in one case I see a product with about 10% extremely-bad reviews and in the other I provided an example where you can see exactly 0% extremely-bad reviews, the difference from 0% to 10% is huge and even if we can pin some of that on the smaller sample in the 2nd instance, even the difference from 1% (a worst-case scenario to correct for sample size) to 10% remains huge.

In other words - it is acceptable to have 10% of the customers giving you just 4 stars, the product is still OK and some people might be very picky, but when 10% gives you 1 star there is a real problem, you can not blame that on people being too picky.

I bought a
SanDisk Extreme Plus microSDHC Card Class 10 UHS-I 80MB/S 64GB + SD...70

No problems so far.
One of the fastest cards, although doesn't reach highest speed it's capable of on Note 3 due to lack of UHS-1 interface

I can't agree with this statement because around 10% of the people doing reviews are one of the following:
1) Paid by a competitor to make a 1-star review.
2) Trolls.
3) People who didn't read the product description before purchasing.
4) Using the product improperly.
5) Idiots.

That is not an absolute rule - as my 2nd product link is showing there ARE good products that have 0 (ZERO) 1-star ratings.

Also in case you have not lived under a bridge in the last 1-2 years you would have noted that in every major Samsung phone forum there have been a HUGE amount of complains about microSD problems, and most of them about Sandisk. Which in itself is not definitive (since Sandisk 32GB and 64GB are among the best sold and most faked models in the world) but most ratings on Amazon should be on the real product sold by Amazon (which I like to believe is not promoting fakes, which again might not be a rule). Either way there IS a problem with a certain number of microSD cards, which suggests either a large number of fakes still being sold through Amazon or really bad quality assurance. Surprisingly the same seems to also be the case for Samsung 64GB microSD (which initially was touted in certain forums as better than the 64GB Sandisk Ultra).
