So you need the storage, not the SD card itself. Current tablets ship with 32GB+, and you can connect external storage via USB if required.  No root required either.

I don't want to power an external device. And don't want to buy a new tablet every 6 months.
I just need storage that I can use as I want. The name is SD.
And I want maybe to 2 or 3 64Gb SD, if I want more video.

I just don't like a company to tell me that I don't need it, because "I should be connected 24/24, 365/365".


2 + 2 = 5, for very large values of 2.
