This week’s theme is additional back-to-school supplies including tech, pet supplies, canning supplies, home organization aids, and food for the school lunch bags.

The Most Interesting Thing We Saw:

Medion 64GB Micro SD Card or Flash Drive

 

  • Medion 64GB MicroSD Card or Flash Drive, $12.99 each. Both are made by Medion, a German-based subsidiary of Chinese electronics company Lenovo.
    • The Medion 64GB MicroSD Card, which comes with an SD card adapter, is a class U3 V30 card. The average Aldi shopper may not know what that means, but the short version is that, on paper, this is a good card for high definition (108op) images and video. It’s got a nice transfer speed and enough storage space for a lot of media. If you’re using 4K video or 8K video you might consider a V60 card, but for most users this one will do the job. The price is pretty competitive compared to other cards in this speed and size class, and probably less than most brick-and-mortar stores.
    • The Medion 64GB Flash Drive is a USB 3.0 card, with backward compatibility with USB 2.0. Those are good specs for the average user who needs to store large files or media. This price is competitive enough, although you might find cheaper ones with the same specs online.
