Hi guys, does the note 3 support 128gb micro SD cards? I've got the chance to get 1 but don't wanna waste money if it won't support it, cheers

It does - look into the Accessories subforum and see that there is a very, very long thread about the 128GB Sandisk microSD, and towards March 2014 you will see a number of people that finally got their 128GB microSD and posted results and impressions.

I'm not sure if this applies to 128GB Sandisk cards, but I've read reports on Sandisk's forum, numerous Googled sites and have been told at several computer stalls in Hong Kong (where I live) of 64GB cards failing on 'some Samsung devices', most notably S4 and Note 3. I have a Note 3 and, until recently, a 64GB Sandisk Ultra UHS I [1]. After the KitKat update it stopped writing, deleting, it wouldn't even format. My storage was 'frozen'. I've since contacted Sandisk and while waiting for the replacement I've purchased a Samsung 64GB as I don't trust Sandisk right now

Well done, you did your homework. But talk about a knee-jerk reaction

Ok, let me clarify something here.
My phone is rooted. That's why I'm here at XDA. I've also fixed the RW permissions for external storage in platform.xml, which would've allowed me to continue using my card pre-KitKat. Note also that I'd tried other SD cards and they worked fine.
On my Sandisk I could not write, delete or format my SD card. What you mentioned only pertains to applications writing to the external storage.
I'd tried through my phone and PC, to no avail. Had I failed to provide enough analysis, don't you think Sandisk would've questioned me on this before agreeing to send me a replacement? Think, man!

They also queried what Samsung I was using, what kernel and build.
What would that have to do with anything? It's a hardware fault, but they were keen to know anyway.

See attached a screenshot of my nuked card, for your information. Consider what your next post on XDA will be, unless you wish to alienate yourself from more people who are only trying to help.

EDIT: In case you're wondering, no the card didn't split into two by some nano-nuclear explosion, I cut the card purposely at Sandisk's request in order to receive the new one.

That is not an issue with your card. That is a "feature" of KitKat. They disabled the ability to write to it.

Requires root to fix for now.

Apps that are updated can still write and read from their own folder on a sdcard
