Card prices are crazy

Looking on Amazon to get a couple new SD for my R5.

The Lexar 128GB 250 MB/s (1666x) is only € 38, the Lexar 128GB 300 MB/s (2000x) is 177€. You can get almost 5 of 250 MB/s for the price of one 300 MB/s.

Now, sure the extra 50 MB/s do make a difference for 12 or 20 FPS shooters, but all in all the 2 cards are almost the same, and I can't see such a huge difference in their prices.

Let alone CFexpress cards, they are a true steal!

Any reason other than the faster emptying buffer to go with the 300 MB/s if only shooting stills and not using burst?
