Using a MicroSD to SD adapter I have a 128GB SD card on my X3. So yeah, it's not 162 but it is less than half the price. :)

OK - please explain to the uninformed....  Are you saying that there are 128GB microSD cards available but not 128GB SD cards, so you have to use the adaptor?  And is the implication that the X5 should be able to hold two 128GB "adapted" cards?

i think he means the opposite,that he is using a 128gb sd card through adapter

Oh - does that mean that the SD card resides outside the micro SD card slot?  That sounds vulnerable!  Photo please?

Thanks Burtomr!  What is the prognosis for a 128gb micro SD card?

'Slim-to-none'....or 'on-the-horizon'...but not available commercially (yet), except on eBay for fakes.

And this is what it looks like to me.

Hmmmm - I guess that means that the decision on how to go falls largely on how long it takes for an X5 (of X3) to read and catalog a new 64GB SD card you pop in it (for me atleast).  Can anyone advise how long it takes to read in the new card?  If it is a matter of a couple minutes, I wouldn't mind swapping.  Perhaps one 64GB card with "CD quality" music, and then swapping in the various microSD cards with high rez on them (not as many files per card)....

It takes no time at all on the x3. Seconds.

Cool.  Then I ain't cartin' around no 128GB card on a leash and ruining the portability of the unit!

Even an anti-shock/ waterproof one.

anti-shock case for flash based memory cards?  that's really a waste of space.

I don't know that I would agree with "seconds" to update the database. And take a look at my pictures, it's still fairly portable and the leash is hidden. (no wheels required)
