Default 128gb microSDXC card working?

Hi guys, has anyone already tried out a 128gb sd card with the note 10.1 2014? I'm running out of memory and would like to upgrade to either a 64gb or 128gb. But don't wanna spend alot of money only to realize it isnt compatible..

Well, it seems to be working with all the devices in this video:

Galaxy S2, S3, S4, Note 2, Note 3, Experia Z... etc
Don't see any reason why it shouldn't work on a P600, P601 & P605 if it is working on a device as old as the S2.

I was wondering if anybody has tried one of these generic 128gb microdsd cards? I don't usually get cards from eBay.

As I've said many times before people please don't but memory cards on ebay. There are too many fakes that cause all host of problems on the devices and then theres that they aint even the size they are advertised at.

Buy memory cards from Amazon or other respected shops BUT i find Amazon best value for money with regards to memory cards.

The genuine 128GB card from SanDisk works perfectly in the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. I have also tested it in the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Note 12.2 (where it is now and still functioning properly).

Do NOT buy generic memory cards from eBay. You would be wasting time and money. If you cannot afford the 128GB card, get the 64GB card from Amazon, it's running around $40 USD there.

Yeah, if the price is too good to be true, it generally is... 128gb Sandisk was bought from Amazon.com. It works fine and is genuine. Was $120AUD. That's less than a dollar a Gb...
Don't buy generic from ebay, it will read as 128gb but in actuality will be, if you're lucky, 8gb or less... Once you get to the sd cards capacity it just fills in empty files. Looks like it's there and works while in PC but as soon as you insert in tab or phone it has nothing but corrupted sectors.
Most of the sellers of these are fly by night cowboys who have been members for less than a month. And there are multiple accounts all about the same price but by different members...
You have been warned...
Here's a readout from an app that tests a card - I only did a test on 30gb as that should tell me. Name of app is at the end...

There's a compatibility tool from Sandisk, which shows you what will work whit a device: pct1.sandisk.com/default.aspx#
The 128gb microSDXC is listed there...

The official SanDisk 128GB card definitely works in my P600. I just pulled it out of my SGS3 (where it also works), and it worked fine in my tablet.
