    Good lord. I hope they do work. Would be great for storing a few games on to save on SSD space.

    Theres a 128GB one with read speeds at around 35MB/s I was originally looking at. Its definitely compatible, but the speed isnt a patch on the one you linked.

    I would definitely go with a USB 3 based storage. IIRC the SD card reader only reaches about 60MB/s?

    The one I linked to reaches 95mb/sec however the USB 3.0 one reaches 190mb/sec for read and write and you get more for your money so may choose that route instead.

    Yeah I know, but if the card reader only does 60MB/s then you're not even reachine cards full potential. You're right to go with the USB option, much better value.

    Ahh got ya misunderstood and also seems the rMBP supports SDXC it should support in theory faster speeds than 60mb/sec

    Hard to say about exact speeds with Sandisk, but for your consideration:

    But I would check random speed of this SDXC card, it may be still rather slow. Sequential speeds aren't as important as random speeds if you plan to run programs from SD card.

    Cheers guys I think I will stick to the cruzer USB 3.0 one as it won't be used all the time and at least it will work 100% when my new rMBP arrives.
