The fact the previous deal expired means $39.99 is not the normal price always. Normal price is $49.99 and deal price of $39.99 has resurfaced again today

Hard to bite on this when the Sandisk 256GB was $30 a few days ago.

I don't think it matters. They're both rated at 100MB/sec and in practice get about 55MB/sec continuous.

I'm not talking about whether it matters or not, I'm talking about why the price was $30!

Average over the entire card write speed?

The Sandisk will hit the 100MB/sec rating all day but it can't average that over the entire card as one long continuous action.

yes

im not sure how you are hitting 100MB/ sec write for the sandisk 256gb A1 class 10 rating.
i see reviews on newegg as 40's to 60's. Sandisk is a lot slower than the samsung cards. There is a big difference in write speed on U1 vs U3 cards. Return your sandisk and get this card... you wont regret it.

another reason why i dont buy sandisk is failure rates. Samsung is just awesome.
