I'd never use a 128gb card and, frankly, find that size absolutely useless. It's ridiculous to have so much space: hell it's more than any of my computers before this one has had.

Uh, OK. Let's go back the hard drive my first computer had...oh, oops! 170K floppy, and no HD. We should have stopped then, especially with the 64KB RAM. Then again, my first hard drive was, IIRC, 20MB. I'm currently bouncing around the whys and wherefores of 1, 1.5 and 2TB drives for my next computer. The one I'm using came with a 120GB drive, and now has a 400GB and a 160GB.

I've heard of people buying the 64gb cards as "backup" in case their computers die or their harddrives take the plunge. I hardly think that Flash memory, as good as it is, is reliable enough for such sizes.

Hell, I have trouble with 4GB at a time.

Don't ever shoot video if you think 128GB is too large.
