Full-size Lexar UHS-I Silver SDXC card series now available up to 512 GB for $139 USD ↺
Lexar launched its Professional 1066x MicroSD SDXC UHS-I Card SILVER Series back in October of 2020 which, at the time, consisted of 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB options with the promise of 512 GB at a future date. Fast-forward to February 2021 and the 512 GB capacity is now widely available through online retailers including Amazon, Newegg, B&H, and Adorama as a full-size SD card. The MicroSD version is currently $10 cheaper in comparison ($129 vs. $139).
According to the manufacturer, the SILVER SD cards are "built to be water, shock, vibration and X-ray proof" to be appropriate for use in professional devices. Sequential read and write speeds are limited to 160 MB/s and 120 MB/s, respectively, compared to 312 MB/s or 624 MB/s on the fastest UHS-II and UHS-III cards.
Interestingly, the 32 GB option continues to be unavailable even though it was promised last October. It remains to be seen if Lexar will even make a 32 GB version or if those plans have been scrapped.
