Lexar reveals first commercially available 1TB SD card

SIZE MIGHT NOT MATTER BUT CAPACITY DOES; at least when it comes to Lexar revealing the world's first 1TB SDXC flash memory card available to buy for the great unwashed.

"Almost fifteen years ago, Lexar announced a 1GB SD card", says Lexar Senior Marketing Manager Joey Lopez.

The Class 10 UHS-1 standard and offers V30 video performance (which simply means it can sustain at least 30MB/s continuous video recording).

Lexar's 633x line of SDHC and SDXC UHS-I cards run the gamut from 16GB all the way to its new flagship offering, the 1TB behemoth listed at $499.99.

It's likely we'll see various deals for it in the near future, but if you can't wait to get more storage for your photography sessions, then you can pick one up right away.
