You can buy a credit card size pc called a raspberry pi for $35 plus SD card plus power cable. You can then install pi hole which blocks ads on your home network. So your cell phone won't see ads your pc won't see ads. Your dad's best friends roommate from college who is on your network won't see ads. Pretty fucking sweet.

Whoa there, let's clear up some things. SD cards are perfectly fine for MANY reads, and a 128 GB card will be fine for hundreds of terabytes of writes over its lifetime. [This card] ( is cheaper than $50 and has better performance than a hard drive.

128 GB is 128 GB +- a few megabytes due to partitioning. You're probably thinking about how hard drives were marketed with misleading SI or "metric" gigabytes which were 10^9 bytes instead of 2^30 . SD typically report using the 2^30 system your operating system uses.

Edit: /u/the_loneliest_noodle is right: That card does not have equivalent read speeds to the typical 5400 rpm drive used in consoles. Those get ~100 MB/s. Consecutive write speeds shouldn't really matter for gaming though. If you really want the best read speeds at that capacity, you have to start paying more like $80:

u/____----___---__--_- · 88 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

If you're going to order online it's worth paying the extra $6 for the evo select which has double the read speed of the Evo.

u/crackerjam · 82 pointsr/funny

If it helps make you more uncomfortable, you can get a 200GB card of the same size for $100 on Amazon right now.

u/kulinacs · 77 pointsr/smashbros

Exact one I bought:
Samsung 256GB 100MB/s (U3) MicroSDXC EVO Select Memory Card with Adapter (MB-ME256GA/AM)

I'll validate the card in the morning. Curious to see if I've been scammed.

u/AlligatorTaffy · 70 pointsr/NintendoSwitch
u/MoogleMan3 · 65 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Not likely related to the update since you can't format it on PC either. FWIW, pny and kingston are the only two brands of flash memory I've ever had fail on me.

Stick with Sandisk or Samsung.

u/plc268 · 65 pointsr/cars

Dashcams record constantly and write a lot of data. SD cards have a finite life where eventually they fail and stop writing data. Some (most) dashcams don't make it obvious that the SD card has failed, so you may think it's recording, but its not.

At one point, I had a month of missing footage due to a failed SD card because I didn't check it. Buy an endurance card for longer life.

u/EarlCampbellsThighs · 56 pointsr/nba
u/LORD_STABULON · 50 pointsr/gaming

At first I was surprised as well, but the more I think about it, it makes sense.

The NES Classic is selling like hotcakes because of hype. When the hype dies, the sales fall off a cliff. I really don't know anything at all about their supply chain, but it seems that Nintendo has been increasingly reliant on "off-the-shelf" hardware ever since the Wii. For example, there was a little "ATI" logo stamped on the Wii because Nintendo used a regular graphics card for that console, and so ATI "owned" part of that device.

So I'm guessing they don't have a ton of vertical integration for hardware manufacturing. Compare that to Apple, which has been aggressively working to own as much of their hardware manufacturing process as possible, even going as far as to manufacture their own CPUs (iPhones have an "A9" chip or whatever, while other smartphones just buy hardware from companies like Samsung, AMD, nVidia, Qualcomm, etc).

The downside of 100% vertical integration is that if Nintendo wanted to make a new Zelda, they would have to control, manage, and pay for everything that Zelda runs on-- the silicon, the enclosure, the LCD screens, the joysticks, even the plastic game cases and printing of brochures. It's insane when you think about it. The upshot is that when you have complete control over everything, you can "stop the presses" at a moment's notice.

So Nintendo doesn't do vertical integration. Again, I have no insider info, but it's become increasingly clear simply by Googling around. For example here's a Polygon article that shows the NES classic is just a bunch of off-the-shelf hardware crammed into an offically trademarked plastic box. And this makes perfect sense. It's also notable that the Nintendo Switch is also completely outsourced, from the nVidia graphics to the USB-C port, microSD slot, Bluetooth, HDMI, etc.

It makes sense for them too-- they're a software company that happens to be in the advantageous position of being able to make such incredibly high quality software that people are willing to buy custom hardware just to play it. Imagine if EA Games tried to sell a console, and it was the only way to play games featuring their intellectual property. Holy shit, that would be their single biggest blunder.

But I digress: The NES Classic is "Nintendo" only in terms of IP. They're just buying electronics from various hardware manufacturers, gluing them together, installing an emulator, and slapping their logo on it. It's a fun product, but we all know it isn't going to last. And here's the thing: Nintendo surely gets a better deal on all this third-party hardware than you or I would, but only because they're placing massive bulk orders.

And that's the kicker, in my opinion. They might have sold a ton of NES Classic consoles, but the holiday season is over and the hype is sure to die soon. Say they placed an initial order for 500 million "Mali400MP2" GPUs to build all these cute little consoles, and they got a quote from the manufacturer saying it would cost 50 cents per unit. Good news: They recovered that 250 million cost by completely selling out! But they know the hype is going to die, and buying another 500 million seems like it might be overkill. Maybe they order 250 million. Except now that the order is smaller, the cost per unit has jumped up to 75 cents per unit (I am completely making these numbers up).

So it's a gamble that gets increasingly risky the longer you play. They already made a ton of money from the NES Classic, but as the hype dies, they'll have to make smaller orders and the cost per unit is going to increase. My guess is that they're still licking their wounds from what happened with the Wii. Those things sold shockingly well, until they woke up one morning and suddenly nobody wanted a Wii anymore. I bet that there was a very specific "oh shit" day at Nintendo HQ when they saw that Wii sales had plummeted while they had millions of optimistically-built units sitting in their warehouses.

To me, cancelling the NES Classic is a good example of "quit while you're ahead". I can't imagine how much the Wii is still burned into the memory of every executive at Nintendo. They built something so popular that it became a global social phenomenon, and then suddenly it just died, and they had their worst fiscal year in ages. Because they'd bought and assembled a bunch of Wiis that would never be sold.

I'll admit that this is way too long of a response to "WHY!?!?" but I do find it interesting. I'm only just starting to understand terms like "vertical integration" myself, but it does help to clarify why certain things are the way they are. Comparing Nintendo to Apple is very illuminating. Both companies have insane brand recognition, but they do business very differently. Ever since Steve Jobs died and Tim Cook became the CEO, people have been predicting the death of Apple. Instead, their stock price has more than doubled since the day he died. Jobs was the charismatic leader, but Cook is the king of the supply chain. He's pushed for vertical integration, and it's been working beautifully. Apple makes a crap product like the Watch? They just scale back production.

Because of vertical integration, Apple can fine-tune their manufacturing to such a precise degree that they'll keep selling Apple Watches right up until the last profitable watch is sold, even though it's clearly a failing product. On the other hand, Nintendo sells products that they don't build, so they have nowhere near the degree of granularity when it comes to predicting how their things will sell tomorrow. Neither company can predict the future, but Apple can change everything in a relative instant, while Nintendo has to make an educated guess about how the world is going to look 6 months down the line.

Also, I'm guessing the cancellation of the NES classic is going to conveniently correspond to a sudden influx of Classic NES games being sold for the Switch on the Nintendo eShop, along with various limited-edition consoles and themed peripherals. That being said, I fucking love Nintendo and hope I can die without seeing them go out of business. People who claim that the Switch is currently a $350 Zelda game are basically right, and I don't give a flying fuck. 100% worth it.

On a final note, if you wanted an NES Classic and couldn't get one or don't want to get price-gouged from a hoarder-reseller, I'd do this:

  1. Buy a Raspberry Pi 3
  2. Put it in an NES Case
  3. You could buy 2 USB NES Controllers for the price of a fancy sandwich, but why not class it up a bit and get some Bluetooth SNES Controllers? Also, if you have unused PS3 controllers laying around and don't mind the lack of authenticity, skip this step.
  4. Buy a microSD card (32 gb is massive overkill for NES ROMs, but if you bought nicer controllers then you'll probably find yourself wanting to try out some SNES/N64/Playstation games)
  5. Download and follow the very simple installation instructions.
  6. Get NES ROMs from the internet, they're almost easier to find than porn.

    Total cost (including the NES controllers and the microSD card) rounds up to $85. And a cheaper Pi will play NES games just fine, nor do you HAVE to buy the $20 NES-themed plastic case I just randomly found on Amazon. Plus you're not limited to the games that were included on the NES Classic, and once you get bored with playing 30 year-old games there are plenty of other things to do with a Pi... Like write unnecessarily long Reddit posts, which I've just finished doing!
u/dragontamer5788 · 49 pointsr/RealTesla

While this is old news, hackaday is an incredibly reliable source and full of actual electrical-engineers.

Overall, there's no new information here, but its written by someone who actually knows electrical engineering / computer engineering. So its a better perspective.


What is unwritten, is that eMMC is among the cheapest forms of storage available. A "socket" for eMMC already exists, its called microSD cards. While your 32GB SanDisk may not be automotive-grade, you can get a decent idea for how much an eMMC costs from that.

Finding a supplier for automotive-grade eMMC in microSD form, and then providing a way for users to change-out the microSD card easily, should be a priority for Tesla engineers. This is a part that is KNOWN to wear-out over time. If you expect a car to last for 10+ years, you need to allow the eMMC card to be replaced over time.

EDIT: I did a search on Digikey. Here's a -40C to 85C (!!) extended temperature range microSD card, probably sufficient for automotive use.

u/CapitalQ · 49 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Full offer rules here. As OP mentioned, it can't be applied to video games.

I just used it to bring the SanDisk Ultra 200GB microSD down to $61.32, effectively giving you 72GB more for $21 over the usual $40/128GB options.

u/GoldenGonzo · 45 pointsr/assholedesign

You don't. Most if not all of the SD cards advertised as 1-2TB are fake, being small capacity cards that had their firmware hacked to show a spoofed high capacity.

Basic rule of thumb is, if you've never heard of the brand making the card, don't buy it. Stick to Kingston, PNY, Samsung, MiniMicro, SanDisk and other well-known, reputable brands.

Here is a highly reviewed 512GB micro SD from Samsung. $90, 4.5/5 stars in reviews.

400GB micro SD from SanDisk, $52, 4.5/5 stars.

That's more than I'd ever need on a phone. My hard storage on my desktop is 2TB, and I hardly fill that up even with lots of films.

u/spaghetti_taco · 44 pointsr/pics

I remember someone announcing it, but I couldn't find a consumer version for sale. Do you know who it was or have a link? I did find 200GB MicroSD cards, those are readily available via Amazon.

u/IForgotMyPasswordGrr · 42 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

You can already buy them stupid cheap. I have two SanDisk 256GB cards I got for $33 each. One is in my Switch. The other is in a drawer until I figure out what to use it for. Maybe my PSP.

Amazon had the 400GB card on sale the other day for $46

The 512GB card was on sale yesterday for $57.

Anything small, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB can be had for like $16 or less.

128GB for like $25

400GB - $57

256GB - $38

200GB - $33

128GB - $20

64GB - $12

32GB - $7

16GB - $6

Not sure how much cheaper you expect them to get.

u/pmo2408 · 38 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I was Xbox forever, started a new job on the road and decided to go for the switch as well for portability. Good choice.


Must Buys Accessories:

Screen protector - there is a 2 pack on amazon:

amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Nintendo Switch 2017 (2-Pack)

SD card (if going digital with games) - maybe go 256gb, amazon has a sale on them, you only need U1 speeds for the switch:

SanDisk 256GB Ultra microSDXC UHS-I Memory Card with Adapter - 100MB/s, C10, U1, Full HD, A1, Micro SD Card - SDSQUAR-256G-GN6MA

Carrying cases - I have two, one for the whole collection (switch, joycons, dock, charger, hdmi):

AmazonBasics Travel and Storage Case for Nintendo Switch - Black

And one for the switch in handheld mode. I use both quite frequently:

Orzly Carry Case Compatible With Nintendo Switch - RED Protective Hard Portable Travel Carry Case Shell Pouch for Nintendo Switch Console & Accessories

Pro controller - easier to play games in docked mode than the joycons.


Smash is out next Friday, but it looks like the best game of the year material.


Pokémon Let’s Go is a spin off, remake of yellow version, but it is a great game. Maybe not $60 great for gameplay, but for nostalgia. I’d say a fair price is around $40.


Games suggested:

Must Play Exclusives:

Zelda: BOTW (10/10) little bit of a learning curve, but open world game with 100+ hours of content

Super Mario Odyssey (9.5/10) very laid back and at times almost too easy, but overall very fun and creative. 30 hours of content


Exclusives W/ Friends or Online:

Mario Kart 8 (9/10)

Super Mario Party Switch (8.5/10)


Other Top Tier Exclusives:

Splatoon (8.5/10) (may be stressful online, but awesome game for both online play and “salmon runs”)

Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze (8.5/10) (tough game but such awesome level design, music; this game can become frustrating)

Mario Rabbids (8.5/10) (fun game, again, can become frustrating as it is a strategy, turn based game with Nintendo characters)

Pokémon Let’s Go (8.5/10) (fun game, super nostalgic trip back to the past of Pokémon origins but now in 3D with alolan forms)

We still don’t know about Super Smash Bros Ulitmate, but I can’t imagine it won’t be a 9 or 9.5 out of 10.

Golf story is the next exclusive game I’ll be getting some time down the road, very hit or miss with people however.

Disclaimer: I don’t really get non exclusives on switch, as I can get them on PC for cheap 9/10 times (except red dead). Also, I do not care for JRPG’s, so I can’t comment on Xenoblade, Octopath, Fire Emblem, Monster Hunter etc.

As others have pointed out, indies are great for the Switch, not too demanding to require further CPU or GPU Power to hinder gameplay, but you will pay the “Nintendo tax”. This is that Nintendo hardly has sales on games. But the point of the Switch is gaming on the go, so it’s a good trade off. If that’s not your reasoning, then stick with indies on stronger consoles or PC.


Joycons are not too small, I would pair them with these if you want to use them single player (like Mario kart or Mario party):

FASTSNAIL Grips for Nintendo Switch Joy-Con, Wear-resistant Handle Kit for Switch Joy Cons Controller, 2 Pack (Black)

When attached to the switch in handheld mode, you can use this to help:

Orzly Comfort Grip Case for Nintendo Switch - Protective Back Cover for use on The Nintendo Switch Console in Handheld Gamepad Mode with Built in Comfort Padded Hand Grips - Smokey Slate

u/[deleted] · 37 pointsr/HistoryPorn

And 50 years later we get more than 200 times that in a finger tip. And just after another 6 years, a version 13,000 times bigger is available for a (relatively) small price.

u/ming3r · 37 pointsr/buildapcsales

Just snagged one. Solid price...although I wish my phones still had support for this these days

EDIT - FASTER ONE AT AMAZON - (80mbps read instead of 48)

u/elitenls · 37 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Seconded. 128GB for $20.99, 256 for $44.99, 512 for $99.99. There's no fucking reason not to.

u/JUMPhil · 36 pointsr/nintendo

Remember 200 GB cards are only $70

u/78OC · 35 pointsr/nintendo

wow thank you. I saw this, went to (canadian) and it was on sale there too. I bought it within 2 minutes of seeing this thread. Thanks!!!

List Price: CDN$ 107.80

Deal Price: CDN$ 64.99 & FREE Shipping.

You Save: CDN$ 42.81 (40%)

For Canadians :)

Edit: and now today (on black Friday) the price went up! Gross!

u/MrPerson0 · 35 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

You can get a comparable SanDisk for $42 without a one to two month wait.

u/Mkilbride · 35 pointsr/buildapcsales

It's not really that big of a steal. Normal price is 49.99$ for the NEWER model...and it's on sale for 40-45$ on Amazon.

u/queuebitt · 34 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

SanDisk Ultra 200GB microSDXC UHS-I Card - $29.21 (26% off)

  • $0.15/GB
  • 100MB/s read speed (real world testing closer to 85MB/s)

    SanDisk Ultra 400GB microSDXC UHS-I Card - $62.30 (34% off)

  • $0.16/GB
  • 100MB/s read speed (real world testing closer to 85MB/s)

    Both are near Black Friday value per GB. The majority of "all digital games" Switch owners should be happy with the 200GB. Those with a mix of physical and digital are usually fine with 128GB. But if you need a new card the 200GB is worth considering at only $8 more.

    The Switch only supports up to 104MB/s max read speed. Eurogamer found only a 0.3 second load time difference between a 30MB/s card and a 90MB/s card. For most users you want to consider capacity (how much do you need) and value (cost per GB), not speed.
u/KorgRue · 32 pointsr/gadgets

For those complaining that they missed out - you can get a RaspberryPI and 2 USB SNES controllers for less than the $80 they are asking for this mini SNES.

PI - 35.70

Case - 7.75

Controller 2 pack - 13.99

SD Card - 12.99

RetroPI OS - Free

Total: ~$70.00

Edit: as others have pointed out, you need a power brick. $10.

Also, here is a fantastic guide for building it.

u/rsc75 · 31 pointsr/headphones

SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I cards

  • 64gb - $14.99

  • 128gb - $29.99

  • 200gb - $49.99 (choose Amazon as the seller. Out of stock, but you can still order, and it will ship when restocked).
u/fivetwofoureight · 31 pointsr/buildapcsales

Seems like most 64gb microsd are under $25. The one on Amazon is $22.

EDIT: price history. Was as low as $15 during the holiday season.

u/samtherat6 · 29 pointsr/gadgets

Saw a 64GB on Slickdeals the other day for $10. $20 seems to be the normal sale price these days for 64GB.

EDIT: Samsung 64GB 100MB/s microSD card is availabile currently for $11. That $35 number is way off.

u/swissjays · 29 pointsr/buildapcsales

same price on Amazon showing for me with free 1 day shipping for prime

u/DayMan-FTW · 28 pointsr/nintendo

I reckon the 200GB SanDisk Ultra is more dense.

u/KingofBullion · 28 pointsr/Surface

Rather than click the link and give them affiliate money (thanks for the spam!) just go to this link, affiliate spam free:

u/RickyCZ · 28 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

If you are going full digital the mininum you need is 200/256GB but if you still buy physical games then 128GB is good enough. I bought one with 128GB but from Samsung because I trust them more when it comes to flash storage(Their SSDs are great) and because I have read multiple times that you can get fake ones when buying this SanDisk model even with Amazon as a seller.

Here is the Samsung model if you want to purchase one:

u/thatnachoguy · 27 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I got this and a Type-C cable to use with my portable battery.

u/cowsareverywhere · 26 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

Yes, it matches the lowest price this card has ever been on Amazon.

u/Mr_0pportunity · 26 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Terrible write speed though... 20MB? No thanks

Edit: This is a better deal IMO (100MB read and 60MB write): Link

u/OfficerNelson · 25 pointsr/legaladvice

This bears repeating for everyone: if you do not have a dash cam, get a dash cam. $45 + $13.

u/iFeliLM · 23 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

To be honest it's far too high of a price. I bought this one: Sandisk 200GB MicroSDXC for just $50 about 1.5 months ago. Granted it's now at $77 on Amazon (though cheaper from other sellers, but be careful about counterfeits).

Still, at $77 you get a much better value instead of paying $50 for another 56GB. If you wait for it to go back down in price you can fetch it for $40-$50 which is much more reasonable (1/3 to 1/4 the price).

No problems on my end with the SanDisk :D

Edit: Updating price.

u/JackSparrowUSA · 23 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I’m so glad you asked this question before buying. First of all, no question is silly. The daily question thread is exactly for these types of quick answer questions.

Do not buy the Nintendo official SD cards. They’re way way overpriced. I’d buy either a Sandisk or Samsung 128gb Micro SD card ($40), as that size give you best bang for the buck. I’ll link a couple below. If you want something smaller or bigger, just let me know.

I’m one of the mods here, so welcome to the subreddit!

Samsung 128gb

Sandisk 128gb

u/st1tchy · 22 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

Do you mind changing the link to an Amazon Smile link? Amazon donates a tiny amount to the charity of the buyers choice.

u/kuraix · 22 pointsr/buildapcsales

I'm afraid that's not really an offer. As TranQLizer said, they're going for $10 regularly.

This is an offer: SanDisk 32GB Micro SD + adapter at 80MB/s, $7.99.


As u/Dangerosity mentioned the seller has iffy ratings, it's sketchy as FUCK.

I recommend this one: Samsung EVO 32GB Micro SD + adapter at 48MB/s, $9.00

DO NOTE that the cheapest seller on this one is again that sketchy as fuck company, but if you go to the second cheapest seller you'll find one with great ratings.

PS: This second recommendation has slower transfer rate, 48MB/s instead of 80MB/s, but as far as I know it's unnoticeable in mooost applications. In my case I want it for my 3DS and there's virtually no difference according to my findings. If you need the faster one just get the first recommendation from a more reputable seller.

u/RippyZ · 21 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Samsung evo is a better sd card and goes for the same price pretty much 100% of the time

Don't buy SD cards in physical retail locations like bestbuy. Their "deals" are just them marking the price down to the actual online price when most of the time they are marked way up. When they do go on sale for real you'll see them for like $25-$40 on Amazon.

EDIT Here's the Sandisk one for the same price on Amazon. No mention of a sale while bestbuy is claiming $118 off. Just bestbuy fuckary going on there. Samsung one I linked is still better as it's rated 30MB/s minimum while the sandisk is 10MB/s minimum.

u/BansheeTK · 19 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I use a sandisk 400 GB card

Right here

Although i havent touched smash since the issue was reported because little sketched to do so after the reports.


^Edit: ^Keep ^in ^mind

When i first bought it, it was 200 dollars and the reviews are alot of recommended, now i look at it and price has dropped, be wary of it though now that the reviews went from being solid 4-5 star reviews to a mixed of negative and positive reviews claiming either the cards they recieve are fake/DOA and they had to contact amazon and the seller to be reimbursed/ given a replacement card that was authetic, and others claim that they got a good card right off the bat.

If you do buy this card, make sure to look online to see how to find out if you have a fake card or not.

Just trying to look out for you guys

u/ABCsAndFeces · 19 pointsr/NintendoSwitch
u/zehamberglar · 19 pointsr/technology

Or don't and get a raspberry pi and put Kodi on it.

Here^1 is^2 everything^3 you^4 need to make a KodiPi with enough space to put a bunch of movies on (if you wish, otherise just get a smaller mSD). About the same price as a brand new roku, but you can do a lot more with it, and it's open source so you could do whatever you wanted with the device.

u/video_dewd · 17 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

Theres the Samsung 128GB 100MB/s (U3) MicroSD EVO (MB-ME128GA/AM)

Though it's $25 right now I got it on sale for $20 in December.

u/zboyet · 17 pointsr/pics

There are 256GB micro sd cards and they do not have to record at super high bitrates. This is not a problem that they should have. If these cams cannot record a whole shift then the taxpayer got ripped off which would not really surprise me.

29.99 for the sandisk 128gb on amazon right now if anyone's interested

Edit: nvm dead

u/AL2009man · 16 pointsr/Games

considering SanDisk now sells 400GB, I think Nintendo made a right move. if only they started including 64GB right outta da box.

u/brandude87 · 16 pointsr/teslamotors

I used to have the same USB drive as you, and it also gave me the same error message. Unfortunately, USB drives aren't really meant for constant re-writing, and wear out pretty quickly. What you need is a high endurance microSD card and USB adapter. The "high endurance" cards are designed specifically for dashcams and are made to handle constant re-writing. After upgrading to the high endurance card, I have perfect quality videos with no more error messages.

I'm pretty sure it's not possible to format drives from an iPad or iPhone. I use GUIFormat on Windows to format drives to FAT32.

u/oozles · 15 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

Here is a video that goes over current SD card specifications pretty well. I'll post what I got out of it and a little bit of additional research:


There are three different types of SD cards that indicate a size range. SD cards are up to 2GB and are useless for our purposes. SDHC cards are from 4-32 GB and are ill-advised since 32GB isn't really enough. What we're interested in is SDXC cards which are from 64GB to 2TB. Each card has a micro version which is what we need. Capacity type doesn't have an impact on performance.


There are two different families of speed classes that indicate a minimum write performance. The first, traditional speed class comes in Class 2, Class 4, Class 6, and Class 10. The number corresponds to their write speed, Class 2 is 2MB/s, class 10 is 10MB/s. This class is denoted by their number inside of a "C".

The other family of speed class is UHS. There are only two types, type 1 and type 3. These are denoted by their number inside of a "U" shaped symbol. UHS1 writes at 10MB/s, UHS3 writes at 30MB/s. That means the Class 10 and UHS1 have the same minimum write performance, but we're just going to look at UHS cards from now on. It is possible for a card to claim a UHS class speed, and a Class 10 speed.

Bus Interface

There are two different bus interfaces for UHS cards, UHS-I and UHS-II. These are denoted by roman numerals rather than our numbers. UHS-II cards have a second row of connection pins on the back of the card, while UHS-I just has the single row. UHS-II cards can transfer data faster than UHS-I cards when they are in a UHS-II compatible machine. If the machine is not UHS-II compatible then there is no benefit, however the UHS-II card will still work as it is backwards compatible. It does not look like the Nintendo Switch is UHS-III compatible, so there is no benefit to using a UHS-II card in it, which is a shame because the II interface can help read speeds tremendously.

So what is Nintendo recommending with OP's card? A microSDXC UHS3-I card. Meaning it is a micro version of a 64GB card, with the best write speed class, and the standard/worse Bus interface.

Nintendo-licensed Sandisk microSDXC 64GB UHS3-I for $19.99

Non licensed Sandisk microSDXC 64GB UHS3-I card for $23

/u/Nobody_is_lurking posted two contenders...

Sandisk microSDXC 64GB UHS1-I card for $14.25

Sandisk microSDXC 128GB UHS1-I card
for $23.25

...but it isn't actually an apples to apples comparison, as they are both UHS1 rather than UHS3. The $6 question is how big of a difference is there functionally between the two speed classes when actually being used by a Switch, which someone already took the time to test!

The results show that, when write speed was involved, the difference was significant, and that installed games can go by 3x faster using a UHS3 card. So sure, the UHS3 is a clear winner for installing, but what people really care about are load times, showed a less drastic story. Installing locally on the Switch beats any external storage options that we're looking at, then the UHS3 trailed shortly behind, with UHS1 following a little longer. For a regularly installed game the difference in load times doesn't seem to be more than a couple of seconds, even if the load time is a minute long. This guy also tested homebrew launched games though, which did show a much bigger difference between UHS1 and UHS3. So there is a difference in load time, but just not a massive one that many people would notice.

Looking at value, for whatever reason the Nintendo-licensed cards are currently cheaper than their equivalent nonlicensed cards, both the 64Gb and 128GB. Obviously the UHS-1 is cheaper than the UHS-3 across the board.

But if you want to branch away from Sandisk you can have the best of both worlds with a Samsung 64GB UHS3-I card for $15 The price per MB stays consistent at bigger sizes as well, so if you wanted a 128GB one it'd be $30.

tl;dr Buy this one. It is better and cheaper.

u/Jlong129 · 15 pointsr/3dspiracy

agreed. Unless you're on a tight budget. Amazon has larger for barely more and are U3 for better speeds.

Amazon has a Samsung EVO Select MicroSDXC card for $20 here

u/TreeThreepio · 14 pointsr/smashbros

I've dealt with corrupted data but have been able to recover my save each time after redownloading.

1) The day it happened - 3 times on 1/29 (day of 7.0 update and 2.0 patch) and once on 2/3

2) How many times it has happened. - 4 times total

3) What mode/character you were playing as.

1st time - Went to start classic mode with Piranha Plant and it crashed

2nd - As the game was booting up

3rd - After running a corruption test after redownloading

4th (5 days later) - while waiting in online quickplay lobby as Palutena. Had already played 10-15 matches

4) How much you completed in the game. (Classic Mode runs/Mob Smash runs/ Adventure Mode/ Spirits Collected/ specificity challenges completed/not completed etc.) - about 25% of classic runs, no mob smash runs, WoL 100% completed, about 800 spirits collected

5) If you own a physical or digital version. - Digital

6) In the case of the latter, if the game was saved to System Memory or an SD card. - So here's the weird part. It was installed on system memory since I've had the game installed pre-ordered. It reinstalled on my SD card for instances 2, 3, and 4 because I had plenty of space available and automatically installs there if there is space. After the final corruption instance this past Sunday, I made sure it installed to the system memory. Have had no issues since but have only played about an hour yesterday.

7) The model and storage size of the SD card in your Switch. - The rumored problematic Samsung EVO 256 GB one. I'm one of the comments you can see in the GameXPlain video of the reddit post. Link to the card:

8) Whether you have used more than one SD card for the system. - I used to have a smaller SanDisk Ultra 64 GB one but once I bought the 256 GB one I took everything off the smaller one and moved it to the larger one.

9) The space left on the SD card. - 144 GB

10) Whether or not you were subscribed to the online service. - Yes

Ran a corruption test of my copy of Smash yesterday and it came back clean. Played for about an hour with no issue. Will update this post if it happens again.

EDIT: I've also played Wargroove and Stardew Valley since the initial corrupt crash and both have had no issues.

u/Cardstatman · 13 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

For $5 more you can get the EVO Select which reads at 80MB/s vs the 48MB/s on the EVO Standard

Of course, for $5 more than that ($45 total - $10 more than the Wallmart one) you can get the EVO Plus. It reads at the same 80MB/s, but it's shock proof, so if you will be taking your card in and out a lot because you are switching cards, it might be worth it.

I'm going with the EVO Select personally

EDIT: sorry, I typed "write" speed not "read speed" - corrected
EDIT 2: I now have the correct read speed and actual benefits for the plus listed.

  • What's the biggest, cheapest, most reliable microSD card I can buy for the Switch? There's no best answer, but a lot of people on this sub recommend this one from Samsung.

  • Should I buy a Nintendo Switch? What about all of the problems I heard about? Maybe? I don't know. That's your call, friend. There are problems, as there are with any new piece of technology, but Nintendo has a great warranty with excellent customer support, and the issues aren't quite as widespread as it seems (people are most vocal when there's a problem; they typically won't say anything if there's nothing wrong).

You could use a tutorial here. It is a lot easier to do than it seems. I will tell you, you need a keyboard, Raspberry Pi 3, and an SD Card. Once you get that, here is where you can download it.. Then, just follow the instructions on Instructable. You really do not have to pay someone, it is a lot easier than it seems. If you want, you can even get a retro case (or normal one like I did) and get a retro controller. PM me if you need more help (I won't charge you if you need help, it is really easy)!

Raspberry Pi 3

Raspberry Pi 3 Charger Kit. A powerful phone charger or micro usb adapter should work, but someone can let me know if I am wrong.

I highly recommend anyone looking to do memory expansion for their Switch to not go with the particular version of the Sandisk Ultra microSD cards. You'll be better served getting either this Sandisk Ultra or the Samsung Evo that /u/Squidula linked to in his comment.

Both have 100mb/s Read/Write speeds versus this one's 48mb/s speed. Some games may lag or just not load at the lower speed and it's only going to be more and more of a requirement to have the 100mb/s speed in the future.

u/mundozeo · 12 pointsr/Switch

Be mindful of what accessories you personally need. People needs are different. The only global accessories that seem to be useful to everyone:

  1. A screen protector. This applies to pretty much any tablet accessory where the screen is not covered by design (like the 3DS clam shell). This is the one I got and it works well ($9.00):

  2. A carrying case. Being portable, odds are you will want to take it out at some point. Seeing it's an expensive piece of hardware, it makes sense to have a case to put everything in it for protection. You can buy the neat ones with colors and crazy designs and space, but for me, this basic one works perfectly fine ($13.00):

  3. An extra charger. Unless you already have a Type C charger, you will likely want to get one. Usually goes for $15.00.

  4. If, and ONLY if you plan to get your games digitally, you WILL want an additional memory card. The one I paste below has enough space for at least 20 games given the average game space that we've seen so far (BoTW takes 14 GB, but Mario Odyssey takes 5.5 Gb, so in average, it evens out.). Note this is only the games you can have installed at a time, you can always remove one or more if you want to download another one, and games you purchase digitally will always be available for re download as long as the eshop exists.

    Any other accessory should REALLY be considered on a need-to basis. Not everyone needs a pro controller (depending on the games you play, I've been fine without it with only BoTW, Mario Kart, Fate/Extella and Mario+Rabbids.), and not everyone needs an extra, improved stand/dock.

    Finally, do some research on what games you will actually want to play. What I've seen is that games on the switch are NOT cheap, and unless you have extra disposable income, buying a game you don't really play can lower your overall appreciation of the system. Not only that, but because releases are sparse at the moment, it's easier to jump into the hype in order to keep using your shiny new hardware. Though that really applies to any console.

First of all: Screen Protector. Once it's on you never notice it, doesn't hurt to get that extra safety!

I've bought 10 games so far, and I'd say get all of these because I have enjoyed them. BOTW, Splatoon 2, Sonic Mania, Rayman Legends, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 (assuming you like DBZ,) Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Pokken Tournament DX, Street Fighter 2 Ultra, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, and Yooka Laylee.

If I had to pick 3 for you to get to start out then I would pick Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. I think that's enough variety to keep you busy for awhile.

A carrying is always a good thing, I'd recommend This case because it's the one I use and does its job.

Accessory wise I have joycon grips which are AMAZING when playing with one joycon.

Also, the grip it comes with is trash. Get the Power A Grip it feels A LOT better in your hands.

As for SD Cards, it depends. I have a 32GB SD card. I mainly buy physical games, The extra space is for screenshots and videos, and download only games, like Sonic Mania, Yooka Laylee, etc. If you're going for digital only then get a 256GB. Sure you won't use a ton of space now, but you might a few years down the line. Also, do NOT get the official Nintendo ones. They are a RIP-OFF! Here are some nice alternatives that will get the job done for A LOT cheaper: 32 GB 64 GB 128 GB and finally 256 GB

If you have any other questions feel free to ask OP, and other (potential) switch owners!

SD Card:

My car was intentionally struck in a fit of road rage a month after getting this cheapo and the other driver sped off without leaving any info. This camera proved he was 100% at fault. This $50 camera got me a $1,700 check as opposed to being shit out of luck. If you want more info on the camera, feel free to DM me or just read the Amazon page. Absolutely worth the price. I bought it in late June and drive 1 hr+ every day, the memory card just got full and is overwriting the old videos automatically.

Honestly I got the 200gb Sandisk here. It's probably the best value since the 256 is WAY more money. Anything more than this is a waste of cash IMO unless it's indeed true that the Switch's SD card reader can read/write blazing fast- even then, I can't justify any more cost than this.

They do and they don't. Amazon sells things directly that they stock themselves. They are also an open market place that anybody can register and sell on. Most people don't realise that. EG this SD card is sold by Amazon and a store called PC Byte.

You can see Amazon's listing on the right. But because the third party is cheaper it becomes the main listing. Amazon is selling it for $20, while the other store is selling it for $17.

First thing you need to ask is when did you buy your switch? If it’s June of this year or after it’s probably got a hardware patch and you can’t hack it. You can check here by serial number.

If your switch is exploitable then go on amazon and get yourself an sd card (may want bigger storage depending on how many games you’ll want) and a jig.
Alternatively, you could get an SX Pro, but unless you don’t mind spending extra money, it’s kind of overpriced and everything you need to do without it is pretty cheap and easy.

It’s easiest to let your switch format your sd card to exFat, but DON’T update to 6.2 FW yet. It’s cracked but CFW hasn’t been updated yet. set up 90DNS.This is so you can use internet apps like YouTube and even play some games online later on non-Nintendo servers without worrying about Nintendo detecting your mods. Also, FYI the switch lan play works on OFW and banned switches as well.

Then backup your clean NAND using hekate
VERY IMPORTANT you do this BEFORE you load any CFW or autoRCM for the first time. The only way you’ll ever be able to go back online to eShop and play online on official Nintendo servers is to restore your clean NAND backup (removing CFW). Also keep in mind your fuse count will need to be the same when restoring this so try not to update your FW (even using offline methods) unless you do it without burning fuses.

Then follow instructions here to setup ReiNX (CFW) and a few other important programs and settings you’ll need.

Then go get Smash and have fun!

u/johnnywahl · 8 pointsr/dashcams

Dashcam is a cheap way to have an extra peace of mind. Definitely recommend it. Also they are low maintenance. I don’t ever notice mine because it sits in front in rear view mirror.

Regarding the price, I say go for a mid range. The cheapo ones can be unreliable and low build quality. The expensive ones tend to be too much and more than what most people need. A good mid range dual cam is the A129. Make sure to get a good SD card too, one that is optimized for video. Fortunately they are pretty cheap.

Installation is easy if you just plug it to your cigarette lighter. Then you just run the cable in your trim, which is super easy to tuck into at the edge.

The next level is hardwiring it to your fuse box. That takes about an hour and can be done with a YouTube video instructional. Or take it into a car audio shop and they can probably do it for $150 or so.

Hope this helps!

The point of the Pro line is to have faster write speeds.

Cards |Pro| Select
Read|95 MB/s|80MB/s

Source (scroll down to the table)
As you can see, the write speed is much higher on the pro line.
Note that a faster write speed won't really help you much on a console. The two times you are likely to ever use it is downloading games and saving.
However, when downloading you are limited to your internet and transfer speed, so 20MB/s isn't likely to be much of a bottleneck.
Further, write speeds will only make a difference if saves are stored on the SD card, and we don't know if that's the case yet. To go a step further, file saves aren't even that large, so you likely won't see much of a difference anyway.

This one seems to be the popular one, because of its read/write speed, size, and price. I don't think anyone is sure about the read/write speed of the Switch but this seems like the best value/best performing.

u/Squidula · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

Just my 2 pennies and I don't actually know what games use what read speed, like u/thebigpavelski mentioned.

I've successfully used a SanDisk 64GB micoSD card in my 521 running 8.1.

I ordered a SanDisk 128GB card from Amazon which should arrive soon. I'll post back if it works. I'm hoping it will work in my Symbian Nokia 808, which works fine with a 64GB card.

Edit: my 64GB card is a SanDisk SDXC card. This is the exact card on Amazon:

None with Verizon. If you're looking for one, get one of these.

u/Sw87 · 7 pointsr/3DS

The size shouldn't have as much an impact in loading times as the read/write speed. Class 10 being the highest in most cases, in which even these have various speeds. Faster is usually more expensive but not so much that you should worry.

This one seems to be a nice for the price.

Speed Demo This is not the card suggested above, just showing class difference

Hope this helps! :]

u/darkarchonlord · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

200GB is $35 less, easy call imo. You're not likely to miss 56GB when you've got this much.

u/Scapetti · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Hey, don't get either. Get the non Nintendo branded official sandisk

It's not only cheaper than both but you can go even higher in size, up to 400gb (you will probably want this eventually). It's exactly the same as the Nintendo but without the Nintendo brand I believe. I would get it over the Samsung. It's what I have and is perfect for the Switch.

When you get it, before you start using it, go to the format options on your Switch settings and make sure you format it. This will ensure it works correctly

u/Ganrokh · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

>I’m currently using the original memory card that came with the Switch but i’m trying to upgrade for the upcoming games.

Was this with a bundle or something? The Switch doesn't normally come with a memory card.


You mean this card? Considering that the same card without branding is $12 cheaper...

Honestly, if you can wait a couple weeks, I'd wait for Black Friday to get a 200+ GB card for cheap.

I don’t know much about micro sd cards but my 256gb card is almost full and I’m considering the below (400gb for $53.53). I’ll prob pick it up on cyber Monday.

Edit: just checked and I currently have the 200gb version of this card and I did a lot of research before I bought it and it works fine. You need to watch out for fakes and there was a program I used to load data and remove data to make sure it was ok when I first got it.

Definitely a Screen Protector

A Travelling Case would be nice.

I also added Dr Scholls Moleskin to the front of my dock to reduce the risk of scratching the screen protector. (Two small strips on the parts inside the dock that are raised.)

A Memory Card also helps for the digital only games.

What color Switch did you get? I got the grey switch then bought a pair of Red Joycons and another pair of Blue Joycons. So in total I have a grey, red, and blue L Joycon and a grey, red, and blue R Joycon.

If you got the grey switch and then buy the [two color Joycon packs] ( then you won't be able to get one of each color for L/R without over paying. This is because the [two color Joycon packs] ( are always Red L and Blue R.

If you bought a neon switch, then buy the [two color Joycon pack] ( and a pair of Grey Joycons for all combinations.

Also, don't buy Joycons on Amazon, they are stupid expensive right now.

I don't have a pro controller yet, but people seem to love it.


Zelda = Must Buy

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe = Must Buy

1-2 Switch = Great for parties/friends

Snipperclips = Great for people who don't play games often (girlfriends/parents/kids). Secret here is to not explain how to play/what to do and let them have fun and try to figure out the puzzles on their own. Act like a support character and you'll have a blast watching them.

Binding of Isaac = I love this game, but put countless hours on the PC version. Mature themes

Super Bomberman R = Classic mode with easy CPUs is fun for roommates. I haven't played through the adventure mode yet.

Wonderboy = Cute/Fun side scroller.

Has Been Heroes = I don't have this yet, apparently very difficult.

Other notes:

I started collecting amiibos after getting a switch (Be very careful, it's easy to get addicted and drop a ton of money here).

I got a Joycon charging dock since the only way to charge extra pairs of Joycons without the Joycon charging dockis to rotate them in and out of the switch while it charges/docked.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

PS I love the Switch so much. It's definitely my favorite console ever.

u/flaconexe · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Why don't you get the Sandisk Micro SD card of the same capacity?

I'm sure it works fine?

Edit: Yeah as one of the comments pointed out , it is cheaper too.

u/GredaGerda · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

This is the best value MicroSD Card in terms of memory and read/write speed.

This is a VERY fast MicroSD card you can find (128GB), but is more expensive.

256 GB, in my opinion, is way too expensive right now. Prices should be better by the end of the year.

u/Shrimptacular · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

Unless you just really want that Nintendo logo, get the Sandisk 256 for $30.

u/MyNameIsFDR · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch
u/pepperman7 · 7 pointsr/lyftdrivers

Beat me to it. Seriously, for all you drivers out there who have made excuses about not getting it, I highly recommend it. The new firmware supports a 256GB SD card which gives you ~24 hours of looping recording time at 1080p x 1080p.

You want high endurance cards. A lot of people are using the Samsung Pro Endurance line

Samsung PRO Endurance 128GB Micro SDXC Card with Adapter - 100MB/s U1 (MB-MJ128GA/AM)
Read those reviews

SanDisk just came out with some High Endurance cards as well, but they're brand new, and haven't been tested as thoroughly as the Samsung yet

SanDisk 128GB High Endurance Video microSDXC Card with Adapter for Dash cam and Home Monitoring Systems - C10, U3, V30, 4K UHD, Micro SD Card - SDSQQNR-128G-GN6IA

u/ButterBiskit · 7 pointsr/WiiHacks

Completely inaccurate.

In fact, the newest letterbomb exploit requires you to be on the latest 4.3 firmware, whereas this guide suggests exploits after 4.1 are impossible.

An HDD is completely optional for storing large amounts of games. If you have a large enough SD card, you can play pretty much anything other than large Wii titles (wbfs files >4GB) from it.

I would suggest a Micro SD card with adapter for the cheaper option (I'm currently running a 64GB Samsung, available here, with no issues). You will need some form of SD card to complete the exploit, but I was able to do so with an old 1GB card that was left in the Wii.

Hope this helps!


In short,

  1. Letterbomb on the latest 4.3 firmware

  2. Install Homebrew channel
u/spaceballsrules · 7 pointsr/MotoG

The Extreme is better in every way. Faster read/write and optimized for shooting in 4K. It's only $6 more. Just be sure to get the one that is rated U3/A1/V30.

If you do opt for the Ultra, just be sure that it is the one that is rated A1, so it is optimized for use with smartphone apps.

The Samsung 256GB is one of the best values right now. You could go higher but the price goes up substantially after 256GB.

It depends on how much you’re downloading if a bigger one is worth it. Both SanDisk and Samsung are good ones to buy

u/Wheatloafer · 6 pointsr/PokemonSwordAndShield

This is the only real big issue with the switch. It only has 32gb of storage built in, so if you'd prefer digital, I highly recommend getting a microSD card to expand your storage space, as you'll run out quickly.

This is the one I put in, relatively cheap for 256gb and has done wonders for my switch experience, as I prefer to not lug around a bunch of physical games.

[Samsung 256GB MicroSDXC] (

As far as other things to enjoy it, I don't think there are any peripherals or anything to worry about, so just dive right in!

u/ignition386 · 6 pointsr/MotoG

(4) probably refers to the card speed class. Class 4 is the slowest microSD card speed, and Maxell isn't really a top-performing brand.

Suggest getting a Class 10 (UHS-I) card from Samsung or Sandisk. Both have 32GB cards for $13 on Amazon.

u/BigDaddy5XL · 6 pointsr/GalaxyNote2

u/americosg · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

These are for Micro SD cards, note that it has a hindge in the left so there should be 2 spots under it. With this card holder setup + the Switch itself one could have:

5 x 128 GB Micro SD Cards for a total of 640 GB for 200 Dollars.


5x 200 GB Micro SD card for a total of 1000 GB for 325 dollars.


Any combination of Micro SD cards that meet your specific storage demands.

Note: 128 GB is the top capacity validated according to rumors. however like in the 3ds the Switch likely supports bigger SD cards. Also the prices of flash media are going down so this will be cheaper in the future. Furthermore I didn't include 256 GB Micro SD cards because I didn't find any with a reasonable price.

Nand technology is very different from how a hdd operates. The hdd actually houses mechanical parts and a spinning disk. If you look how ssd hdd is half the size of a standard hdd. It also uses nand technology. The person who created that meme obviously never came across this .

Edit: to further answer your question, the nand cells they store data on are stacked on each other in a tiny space and the rest of the card is the interface to interact with peripherals. Not only are they shrinking in size, but the read/write speeds are increasing.

It's actually $160 right now, and has been as low as $130 recently. The 128GB version is under $50.

u/jc726 · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

u/nnid · 6 pointsr/consoledeals

you can get this Samsung 128GB 80MB/s EVO Select Micro SDXC memory card for the same price. either should work fine, though the Samsung may have slightly better real-world performance.

u/raptir1 · 6 pointsr/EmulationOnAndroid

The SD "classes" were defined for use in digital cameras, not other devices. The reason I mention this is that the class defines only the write speed and says nothing about the read speed. Class 4 means that it has a 4MB/s write speed while Class 10 is 10MB/s.

Now that you know how class is defined... ignore it. Look at the actual read and write speed. If you're in the US, you can get a 32GB for $13 that has a write speed of 20MB/s (double a Class 10) and a read speed of 100MB/s. Odds are you'll be paying about the same for a Class 4 32GB.

u/patz2009 · 6 pointsr/gpdwin

Storage -
200GB of storage that should be plenty fast for emulators.

Case -
Cheap and has plenty of space. Has a semi-hard shell.

Screen protector - The IGG WIN 2s will have a screen protector included.

Power Bank -
There's plenty of options out there and this is just an example, but your biggest thing to look for will be Power Delivery. It's essentially the open standard version of Quick Charge, and the WIN 2 supports it.

All this being said, I wouldn't buy the battery or storage now. Prices are likely to drop (at worst, stay the same) between now and May when the WIN 2 starts shipping.

u/Japsy · 6 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I'd recommend the Butterfox case instead of the licensed one, since it's more versatile, aesthetically pleasing, cheaper and fits more stuff. (i.e. ac adapter). If you want this one than make sure it's the 9 cartridge one, since that's the newest version. Also a 128 SD card class 10 will most likely go on sale this coming black friday/cyber monday.

I've been going overboard with accessories. Here's what I picked up so far:

Glass screen protector - Just in case.

128GB microSD card - I rarely buy physical games

Pro Controller - I love it. So comfortable.

PowerA Hybrid Case - I basically use this as a stand for my Switch when I'm on the go.

JDeal portable dock - It works. Make sure to follow the instructions. Works with my Nexus5x 5v 3A portable charger.

[Retractable HDMI cable] (

Hestia case - The Switch with the PowerA Hybrid Case, portable dock, portable USB-C charger, and retractable HDMI cable all fit in this.

USB 3.0 LAN Adapter - Faster speeds when on the official dock.

Gooseneck tablet holder - Ultimate comfort. Play while in bed.

Magic NS Wireless Adapter - I had originally bought this so I could use my PS4 controller. This was before I picked up the Pro Controller. It works. There was a recent firmware update that gives gyro support for PS4 controllers and it works well with Splatoon 2.

On the way:

Mumba case - For better comfort/protection while playing in handheld mode.

SanDisk Ultra 32GB. If it works in your cam and records properly, you shouldn't have an issue.

I had an issue where various Transcend cards of mine wouldn't show up, would record a few minutes, etc.. This card worked fine in the cam, so I kept constant with the models as I scaled out.

Use Xiaomi Dafang Hacks as that repo is updated within the last 3 days, OpenIPC a few months, and that's what it was based on.

Format the card to FAT32. Make sure to do that. NTFS, etc. will not work.

Once formatted, clear the lot, and download the demo.bin.

Direct Download:

Rename that to 'demo.bin' and have NOTHING ELSE ON THE CARD. FAT32 + demo.bin by itself.

Insert card into camera with demo.bin. Hold setup before giving it USB power. Keep holding it. Plug it back in. Keep holding setup for 10 seconds after so it flashes.

After 2-3 minutes it'll reflash with an older stock firmware that will allow you to do step 2. Wait 3-5 minutes, and power down the camera.

Re-insert the card to the PC / Mac, and copy the full contents of firmware_mod to the SD card after editing /config/wpa_supplicant.conf.dist to include your SSID (wifi name) and PSK (password).

Make sure to rename it also to wpa_supplicant.conf.

After copying, make sure it's not within a folder on the SD card, but populates the root folder.

Re-insert the card, no need to press any buttons, turn on the CAM and you should find the camera on your network and can login to the interface as https://IP

Full Instructions

It's working great, pushing 430-450KB/s at 20-50% CPU and around 48MB used. Turned off audio and motion tracking to give the CPU a break.

Now I love this camera.

u/sobusyimbored · 5 pointsr/raspberry_pi

u/Jarlek · 5 pointsr/gpdwin

I did a bit of research on this. The two main competitors for the low profile USB 3.0 usb sticks are the Lexar S45:

And the SanDisk Ultra Fit:

They are similar in price (around 30 dollars). I went with the Lexar because it seemed to be slightly faster in head to head benchmarks and the profile of it is flat. The primary downside when I got it is that it has a VERY bright blue LED that flashes with activity. However, I simply put some electrical tape over it and it almost entirely blocks it.

For SDCards, it seems the fastest performers are the Samsung EVO Plus:

It has the fastest read speed at 80 MB/sec, which is still quite a bit slower than the USB which I usually benchmark at around 150 MB/Sec max, and the internal memory is faster than both, and much better read speed (so prioritize putting games etc that have longer loading times or require writing in the internal memory).

I will assume stereo, because surround in that budget is a compromise.

$111.50 for a Pi 3, power supply, header, S/PDIF out board, and case. Another $13 for a SD card. If you already have a source that leaves you more receiver or subwoofer budget, you pick.

$230 for the receiver. 2.1 for now but gives you expansion room for later.

$280 for speakers.

$220 for a subwoofer.

$145 leftover for wiring and some DIY stands if needed.

Thanks for scraping this up to make your kids happy. Video games are one of the best pass times in the world, and I may not have ever became a programmer, had my dad not gotten me into video games. While the up-front expense is high, the hours-per-dollar of entertainment is only surpassed by books.

I could suggest tons of things to make the experience better, but you're already dropping around $300 on a console. Right out of the box, you'll be able to download free games from the eShop (like Fortnite, and soon brawlhalla. Look around that section), but I HIGHLY recommend you get a 2nd controller, so they don't have to share when the switch is stationary and a few games like Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8, and the new Mario Party game (whenever it comes out)

If your kids will take the switch around, I'd recommend getting a case, and a 3rd party dock that can work with the case on.. and later down the line I'd recommend trying to find a MicroSD card to slot into it. You may have one lying around, but if you don't, you can check out these

The problem is almost certainly your card. The Ultra is a U1-rated card, whereas the Pocket requires a U3 rated card not to glitch.

u/SoggyDonuts · 5 pointsr/3DS

UHS stands for Ultra high speed, which means that it transfers faster than normal cards. The only problem is, that the 3ds can't utilize UHS, so you only get class 10 speeds. It would back up faster on your computer than a normal one though but you wouldn't get the crazy fast read speeds on your 3ds.

I would suggest this one over yours:

It's the same capacity, and it's UHS so your backups will be faster, and it's almost half the price of that one.

u/Leamans · 5 pointsr/3DS

Amazon is currently having a sale on all Sony class 10 memory cards. I don't think you can go wrong with Sony, since they make so many electronics that use their own memory cards.

By the way, you can get 64GB working, you just have to format it into FAT32. 64GB cards come in exFAT formats by default (I haven't actually done this).

Alright I got a technical question.

I ordered a SanDisk Extreme PRO 64GB link

Read: Up to 95MB/s

Write: Up to 90MB/s

So won't this be ideal for a snappy phone speeds from an SD card for both 4k and general use?


Compared to the current offer Actual amazon link

The product description doesn't give a clear indication of write speeds (vs the 1st product I listed) but from the useful Amazon Comments I got:

Sequential Read : 45.93 MB/s

Sequential Write : 14.7 MB MB/s

^(thanks /u/ekol for the correct read/write speeds)

So wouldn't the 64gig Extreme pro be ideal for 4k recording and general speediness?

I have the 64GB version of this card. It has lasted years but is super slow with writes.

CrystalDiskMark read results were OK at 86, 3, 3, 2.7 MB/s. Write was terrible at 7.5, 1.2, 0.9, 0.9 MB/s !

I never noticed how slow it was until trying to take 4K video, fuggetaboutit. It's too slow for 1080p60.

Moved up to the 128GB Samsung Evo Select (U3), tested sequential read/write is 95 and 87 MB/s respectively. It's $19.49, 15% cash back with Amazon Prime card.

  • Dashcam + Micro SD card + Hardwire kit = Cost

  • Or Dashcam + Micro SD card = No parking mode.


    Write down your values right now.

  • Video quality = 0-10

  • Build quality = 0-10

  • Parking mode = 0-10

    0 being the lowest, 10 being the highest.

    A129 isn't a bad dash cam, but be prepared for your values to shift after ownership after a while. If you did your research, you know what you are purchasing. A129 2CH is what it is, as advertised.


  • A129 ($160 USD) Dash cam

  • Micro SD card - TLC based cards will not last as long as MLC based High Endurance cards. 128 GB Micro SD card TLC based card likely ($20 USD) vs 64 GB High Endurance Micro SD card MLC based card likely ($43 USD)

    Micro SD cards last about a year or 2, maybe 3, then die. They have a limited number of read/write/rewrite cycles. Some are not Dashcam rated (will say in the warranty use in a dash cam will void warranty.) Some dash cams are picky with Micro SD cards and reject them on an unknown criteria. Some dash cams have recommended brands of Micro SD cards.

  • Viofo 3 wire Hardwire kit ($15 USD) - Low voltage cut off feature (Adjustable) Voltage only.

  • Viofo 2 wire hardwire kit ($10 USD) - Low voltage cut off feature (Preset/Not Adjustable) Voltage only.

  • Power Magic Pro 3 wire hardwire kit ($24-30 USD) - Low voltage cut off feature (Adjustable) Voltage/Timer based.

    So I don't know how Viofo parking mode activates under different situations.

  • Typical 2 wire system = Motion sensor(Movement in front of camera lens)/G sensor (hits bumps) inactivity, with required 1-2 minutes of "Quiet time." If the dash cam does not get its required "Quiet time" it will record normally until Low voltage cut off feature activates. Low voltage cut off feature (Preset/Not Adjustable) Voltage only.

    1st wire (Postitive) -> Always on fuse = Parking mode; 2nd wire -> Ground wire (Negative) to unpainted bolt (completes circuit).


    1st wire (Positive) -> Ignition only fuse = No parking mode; 2nd wire -> Ground wire (Negative) to unpainted bolt (completes circuit).

  • Typical 3 wire system = Ignition switch position parking mode detection. This typically is more reliable way to detect if parked. However High end/Luxury vehicles with an (Unique/Specific) sleep mode will require an (Unique/Specific) hardwiring setup to allow the dash cam to work. (Sometimes including tunneling through the firewall to the battery, then re-insulating said fire wall.) Low voltage cut off feature (Adjustable) Voltage/Timer based.

    1st wire (Bat) -> Always on fuse = Powers dash cam; 2nd wire (ACC) -> Ignition only fuse = Detects if parked or driving; 3rd wire -> Ground wire (Negative) to unpainted bolt (completes circuit).

    I don't know how/if A129 changes from 2 -> 3 wire, or from 3 wire viofo -> 3 wire Power Magic Pro.

  • Tap a fuse ($5-15 USD) + 5 amp fuse ($1-5 USD) at any automotive store.

    All Fuses, including Tap a fuse should match your vehicle's type. Mini/Mini low profile are the most common. There are also ATO, Micro 2, Micro 3, and Maxi type fuses.

    Read your owner's manual for fuse box location(s) typically 2-3 in every vehicle - in/under dashboard (use this one), Under hood (avoid at all costs), In door (use able but not favored), and Trunk (Use able but not favored.)

The hard wire kit is supposed to cut power off if the battery voltage gets too low to prevent draining the battery. I may test to see how long it records with the car off to see if it will be something I do.

U1 guarantees a minimum sequential write speed of 10 MB/s -

It may be faster than that, but it's probably not faster than 30 MB/s, because then they'd mark it U3

Update: here are the two reported write speeds I see in the reviews for the 400gb card:

u/Lorben · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

They are compatible as long as they have a read speed of at least 60MB/s, and preferably you want something with a read speed of around 100MB/s. The Switch can't read any faster than 100MB/s so you won't get any benefit from a faster card. Write speed is pretty irrelevant.

Amazon has 256GB cards for $34. They sell the 400GB cards for $55.

So I'm using a very full 64GB MicroSD card and bought a 400 GB replacement. Now, what is the best way to backup your things?

Do I connect and transfer the old card contents from Micro SD card, to my PC. Then format my new 400GB Micro and then put the data back onto the 400GB?

Do I need to use any Cloud features? Will I be losing anything?

This is what I bought btw. Is it a good one? (19K 4 1/2 Stars)

Thanks a lot!

EDIT: Also, I did a search before posting this here, both here and google.

u/DaGeek247 · 4 pointsr/LinusTechTips

This will end up costing you 2,500$ + the 25$ card. A similar sized ssd will cost 1,500$.

But we can take this further. There are 512GB capacity MicroSD cards. This will end up costing 3,000$ for the sd cards, and net you a whopping 5TB setup. Plus 25$ for the card.

There are no commercially available 5TB SSDs. Well, it might exist but i could not find one for sale.,12000000

This card allows you to have a 5TB single card solid state setup, before anyone else.

u/ftpguy · 4 pointsr/teslamotors

I would recommend not getting a thumb drive. It seems most have issues with standard thumb drives. I would recommend a SD card designed for dash cams. This is what I bought:

u/sentientrip · 4 pointsr/teslamotors

u/A6000_Shooter · 4 pointsr/a6000

There is much better value in other cards mate. You can grab a Samsung 64GB 100MB/s (U3) MicroSDXC EVO Select which is an excellent performing card for under $20 or the 128GB model for under $40. They are U3 rated which means they guarantee the write speed will remain above 30MB/s. The tests I have seen have shown this card writes much faster than this.

The max write speed the A6000 is capable of is 35MB/s. At 1080 60fps, my guess is that the write speed required would be around a third of that, but at least you will have a card which can clear the buffer at max speed should you be burst shooting stills.

u/TravisO · 4 pointsr/videography
  1. stop using software based stabilization, it makes everything look weird especially around the edges, buy a gimbal, your walking footage is unwatchable

  2. I didn't see it skip frames but I didn't watch very much of it, beginners always misunderstand SD card speed, buy this one instead

  3. too much content, 13mins is pretty long, I couldn't even watch 2 mins of it, jumping around... content is king, and that refers to quality not quantity

  4. realize all my advice is to help you, don't let crit offend you, it'll prevent you from improving, everybody starts out roughly, trust me, in a year from now you'll find your old videos embarrassing, if you don't, then you're not improving

The one I use, pretty good size and to me a pretty good price. Might be worth to save up for it instead of having to buy a bigger card every time you hit the cap

u/tylerdanielson · 4 pointsr/homeassistant

That depends on how early you want to start. There are a lot of different components at play here, but each one is using the bare minimum of each.

Personally, I would start simple with building a base Home Assistant server.

  • Raspberry Pi Starter Kit $70
  • 32gb Micro SD card $8
  • Micro SD Card/USB Reader $8

    Once you have your equipment, install Hass.IO using the Raspberry Pi 3 instructions.

    Home Assistant does a great job of walking you through the steps. It is really easy, especially if starting with a fresh install.

    From here, you now have Home Assistant running and you can play around with installing all of the various components. I highly recommend taking some time to learn the basic mechanics of adding equipment.

    From there, I have done a ton of trial and error in JavaScript and HTML using W3Schools. My suggestion: come up with what you want to do, start small, and build from it.

    In my case, I wanted two separate websites on one screen. DAKBoard on the top, and my Home Assistant front end on the bottom. This told me iframe, so I started here, which allowed me to do live trial and error. Eventually, I built myself up to using for trial and error, but that's jumping ahead.

    Once I got my iframes working out, I actually used Dakboard's instruction on how to build a wall display that automatically boots into a webpage.

    The final step is to put your new webpage on Home Assistant's built in web server. Simply create a folder "www" under your "config" folder, add your new html page there, and direct your new wall panel to it's address.

    tl;dr - start small, come up with a goal, and build up to it in pieces trying different things along the way.

u/bigylittle · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch
  • Screen Protector. I suggest a tempered glass screen protector
  • SD Card. Dpending on how committed you are to digital vs. physical, a 64gb or 128gb should hold you over. Wait for them to go on sale, they go on sale pretty often.
  • Carrying case. I recommend the ButterFox carrying cases, they come in different sizes so pick one that suits you.
  • A stand. By stand I mean something that will hold your Switch and provide access to the USB port for charging. Some recommend the Hori play stand, for me that's a bit too bulky and went with one meant for cellphones, works wonders.
  • Portable battery pack, look for ones with at least 2.1A output to sustain gameplay when charging.
  • Pro controller, it's essential on most games, literally night and day from the joy cons. I suggest getting the Xenoblade version because it has an updated D-Pad that the original has.
  • Another dock, theres a lot of controversy here. There are 3rd party options out there they have been noted as dangerous to your Switch and may brick it and render it useless. From my experience, I've had great success with the Nyko dock and the Best Buy Insignia dock, use these at your own risk. You could play it safe and buy another official Nintendo dock. it's not as cheap however.

    Links for all the items I got for your reference:
    Screen Protector
    Memory Card
    Battery Pack
    Pro Controller
    Nyko Dock

u/chaoskagami · 4 pointsr/3dshacks
  1. The price of 120GB has fallen recently, and one can be had for ~$40 USD. This is less than one 3DS game, and while other SD cards are dirt cheap, $40 is not unreasonable by any means.

  2. is a VERY noob friendly guide. Hand-holdingly so, for better or worse.

  3. Most people are generally helpful so long as you ask the right questions. As for information - a lot of it is meant for devs rather than users, but is public unlike Vita/PSP/WiiU/etc. I'll agree we need more newbie guides, but anyone with technical knowledge could distill the docs and write one now. Most devs are too busy writing code and pushing it to github, or answering questions in forum topics. :/

I have 32 GB and I found myself playing maybe 2 or 3 games at any given time.

SD cards are cheap enough though that there's little point to getting a tiny SD card and having to pull your card in and out every time you want to play something different.

Smaller cards are also ridiculously expensive for what you're getting. A 32 GB Sandisk costs $10.59 or $0.33/GB. An 8 GB Sandisk costs $7.08 or $0.88/GB. You're paying 50% more for a 300% increase in capacity. It's a no brainer.

Ok here's what i did since

A) I didn't want to spend the $$ on a go pro and

B) I wanted a camera that is easily scripted (or hackable if you will).

I got the Xiaomi Yi Action cam with the water proof case for about $75

Stuffed it with memory

Grabbed some adhesive mounts for $8

And enabled this script that allows you to just push the on button when you hook a fish and the cam will take a photo every two seconds until you shut it off. You end up with a lot of photos but it's easy to sort though and just grab the good ones. The script also allows you to set different exposure and quality settings which make for some great pics.

If you go this route hit me up once you get the cam and I'll share out there script I use.

u/Death_Masta187 · 4 pointsr/PSP

So decided to dig out my old psp slim and mess around with it again. I could not find any info online about using anything bigger than a 64GB MicroSD working at all so I figured id give 128GB card a go. If it didn't work then Id just have a new 128GB card to use in my Nintendo Switch.

I have a psp 2000 flashed to 6.60ME-1.6 (I have not even checked to see if there is a new CFW since this version)

Bought this microSD to memstick pro duo -

and this microSD -

I used gparted in Linux (this is just what I run as my OS) to delete the exfat partition and recreated it as fat32.
I see no reason why disk management in windows (and what ever apple uses) as well to delete/recreate the partition as fat32.

Once I put the card into my PSP is said the card could not be used and needed to be formatted. so I let it format. Once it was done it reported all the correct free space. copied over all my iso and games run just fine. from me testing load times in GTA:VCS went from 26.56s to 31.41s on the new SD card. Also most psp takes a few more seconds to boot. but I suspect that's because I have 11x the number of games on the card. overall a few seconds added to load times is worth having over 120GB more space.

Edit: Ignore the date and time being way off in the picture. My original battery had swelled and so I took it out. I was just to lazy to keep setting it every time I plugged back in the charger. Thankfully the 1800mwh sony battery I used as a pandora battery(just found out you could turn it back into a normal battery. haha) looks fine and still holds a change (I used double sided tape to hold the bigger battery in place and got almost 6 hours in gta-lsc before it needed to be charged). just waiting on an extended cover so I can use it fully.

u/DapperUnion · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

The Switch comes with a card, it is just slow and small in space.

If you physically buy every game on the switch, you won't have much of an issue with space. It becomes an issue when you digitally buy games. I personally prefer digital, as it makes taking it on the go with me much more simple. I still get hard copies of some good single player games that I like collecting the cases for.

Sandisk 128GB Micro SD $19.99

I use this card for my switch, and you will not run out of space even if you buy most of your games digitally. If you won't buy many games, then you can opt for the 64GB card for $12.

As much as I loved the Zune I suggest you move on to other platforms being the software and hardware are not really supported anymore.

For ~$110 you can get a unlocked Nokia 530 from Amazon and get a cheap 64GB MicroSD card like this for ~$31 for a unit that is going to be updated for years to come at a cheaper price then what you can probably get a 64GB Zune HD for.

Pioneer XDP100 often goes down to $300 on Amazon, and sometimes down to $250. It does everything you want it to do, and has all the bells and whistles you could want in a DAP (Android for streaming audio, 2 micro SDXC slots, ES9018K2M DAC, zero floor noise even with finicky IEMs, great SQ, DSD capable, supports MQA (sorry /u/Arve) has bluetooth, has a great UI (essentially Android) and plays video too.

Its only major con is that it has decent (but not great) battery life. Also it puts out a max of 75mW per channel at 32 ohms, so obviously not for those high impedance headphones.

Why do I say it is a bargain? I bought mine for full price when it first came out after running through a bunch of Sony internet-enabled DAPs (didnt really love any of them) and I still think it was absolutely worth it. I have two of these loaded up in the SD card slots, so my storage capacity is 432GB, which is more than enough for my needs. I use one SD card to store Tidal + Spotify files offline, another for my music collection, and the on-board memory for a movie or two in case I get bored.

The reason the XDP100 is discounted is because it is now discontinued and replaced by the XDP300. It is exactly the same as the Onkyo DPX1, except the Onkyo is balanced and has twice the output power.

You will need to be patient, but if the XDP100 goes down to $250 again at that price it isn't a deal, it's a steal .

That sounds like a complicated solution (e.g. prone to failure) for a simple problem. The simplest solution would simply be to inform whoever is managing the laptops that they must be online on a schedule for backups and failure to adhere to that could result in data loss. The next easiest would be to add a backup drive to each laptop. Low profile thumb drives, SSD cards, etc. Are all inexpensive. Lastly, adding some sort of NAS device that they could connect to locally if needed would still be simpler than some sort of Silicon Valley storage solution.

For UHD video to be recorded directly onto the sdcard, depending on the bitrate (e.g. 40mbps etc), you need a card that can write at a speed greater than that, Samsung Pro cards are rated to write around 80-90mbps and read around the same, Sandisk has similar cards but where i am, Samsung is cheaper.
I myself got the Samsung pro 64gb microsd for the above reason, those evo cards that display 95mbps, thats for read, write is still limited to 15-20mbps. But the 2017 Samsung Evo Select after a certain size can write at ~90mbps i think its 64 or 128gb, only disadvantage of this over a pro card is that its MLC meaning if both were used exactly the same again and again, the pro would last longer than the evo select

u/MatNomis · 4 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Even without the technical issues involved, I think swapping cards all the time would be a pain in the neck. What is the barrier to picking up a larger card? You can get a 128gig, high performance U3 card (Samsung Evo) for $20 from Amazon ( )

That's the price of a single indie game, and would give you double the space of your two 32gb cards combined...and you would not need to swap. Even so, I'd recommend paying double in order to get the 256gb version. I recently maxed out my 128gb and had to upgrade. It was possible and ended up being very clean, but it was a little bit of a hassle to perform the data transfer.

u/Merppity · 4 pointsr/fireemblem

I know this isn't really an answer, but you might wanna look into an SD Card. 64 GB ones aren't very expensive. Even very good ones like this 128 GB card are only $20 dollars or so.

If you don't feel like doing that, maybe check Target, Walmart, or Best Buy? They'll also have inventory for stores listed on their websites and you can usually reserve a physical copy for pickup as well.

u/goodpricefriedrice · 4 pointsr/GalaxyS9

I have this one and am very happy with it:

According to customer reviews, it's faster than the older Plus youve linked.

Just dont get a sandisk ultra. My phones (both windows and android) have killed 2x 64gb ultra cards and 1x 128gb ultra cards (so 100% of all sandisk microsds ive ever owned).

Speed is definitely noticeable compared to the sandisks. When i had a tonne of photos the sandisk would cause the gallery app to crash. With the samsung, no rpoblem.

u/FrontLeftFender · 4 pointsr/buildapcsales

>$25 for a 128gb 64gb U-3 is a steal.

The Samsung "U3" card on amazon is always like $23.

There is a difference between this and that in terms of write speed, though.

u/BitingChaos · 4 pointsr/Roadcam

I had a G1W-C a few years ago. It died, and I replaced it with the G1W-S. I later found that if you add a GPS module to it, it auto-sets the time. I'm sure there are better options out there, but I'm just familiar with the "G1W" setup (including how it attaches to my rearview mirror).

Wow this is a low-spec piece of garbage. Buy a 128GB SD card (like this one), and stick it in. If you really need hard disk space, unfortunately you'll need to maybe put Linux on it, as that is considered pretty normal type of space as far as Windows goes.

u/HappyPollen · 3 pointsr/smashbros

This is the SD card + reader I picked up when it was on sale for the holidays. If you're just looking for a reader, this one seems to be the most recommended. Or if you have a decent electronics store nearby like Fry's or BB, you can compare with them.

It's nice that someone could pick up the EVO+ from Best Buy right away, but the Samsung Evo Selects are the same price on Amazon and have better write speeds

u/mailmeoffers · 3 pointsr/wyzecam

Using these in all 4 of my cams. Great quality for the $. Despite what others have said - do not opt for cheapest option. Flash memory (SD cards, SSD, etc...) have a finite number of read/writes. If your cameras are configured for “Continuous Recording” you’ll burn out the cheapest cards in a month+.

Get the 360 Camera. You can get 3rd party fast wireless chargers for around $20 USD and the 128GB MicroSD for about $50 USD. So you can make you're own bundle for about $70+tax.

The 360 Camera on the other hand retails for $175+tax.

So in the end, you get more value with the 360 camera than the wireless charger+MicroSD combo.

I paid about $43 each for them from Amazon.

Also, be sure you get good SD cards. Bad cards lead to no video when you really need it. I have these Samsung Evo Selects and have not had one fail yet.

u/KurisuFuransu · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

I'm unsure if it matters for the Switch, but these are U1 rated, guaranteed minimum data speed of 10mbps. Samsung has a U3 (30mbps) card for only slightly more:

I still don't need a MicroSD card quite yet for my Switch, but Sandisk and Samsung are both solid names in the memory space, so I'd trust either of them. Hopefully the 256GB returns to a good price, the 128GB sure seems like a deal.

It's a computer chip with storage space on it, so you can put more game data on it. Just like a memory card, on the bottom of the swtich there is a slot to place one and it will expand it's storage space greatly.

u/WASSHOI · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Honestly, I'd just get this (I picked one up myself)


You won't need the extra performance for the Switch, but it's objectively a better for the same price so why not? It future proofs it for whatever reason. Say an updated Switch comes out that can utilize it (not likely, but hypothetical) or you just upgrade from 128 and repurpose your "old" Switch card as backup storage for your PC or something. Like you, I tried finding deals for new Switch memory cards specifically but this seems to be the best overall deal I could find. In normal circumstances, the U1 card would probably be cheaper and the better buy if you're using it exclusively for the Switch; but considering this is just an upgrade for the same price there's not really a reason to look at the U1.

u/GreenBeanWoof · 3 pointsr/GalaxyS9

u/rhinofinger · 3 pointsr/raspberry_pi

Look at /r/retropie - it's more focused on these projects.

At minimum, you'll want: a [Raspberry Pi 3 ($35)](, a case ($7-$20), a power supply ($10), an HDMI cable ($7), one or two controllers ($15-$30 each), and a micro SD card ($22 for a Class 10 64 GB). There are a lot of threads about which controllers are best - I'm a fan of the wireless 8bitdo SNES30 / SFC30 (usually cheaper on eBay).

You don't need any programming experience to set it up, though you may need to edit some configuration files to set certain things up properly. I've built 2 of these to date - they play anything up to and including PlayStation 1 consistently well. N64 is very hit and miss, though Mario Kart 64 and Kirby 64 work well.

u/mervinj7 · 3 pointsr/GalaxyS8

Here's the recommended SD Card from wirecutter. It's 64GB for $23. Class 10 U3. The SanDisk Extreme is a good backup option but its generally $10 more expensive.

u/lanabi · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

For everyone that think this is better since it has Switch logo on it: No it is not. You are paying extra just for the license.


However, this is better than a U1 card due to the higher sustained speeds.


No reason to get this over U3 Samsung deal at Amazon besides from having a logo on it while it sits inside a slot unseen.


Amazon deal:

u/Juststopsmokingdude · 3 pointsr/RetroPie

yes it will work, but microsd cards are not super reliable (if power goes out, etc) and not super fast.

so, a preferred method would be to get a $18 128gb card, and put your roms on a usb storage...

u/kyle6477 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

128GB cards are probably the best value right now. They get significantly more expensive once you go beyond that.

This one is a really good card. Works with my 3DS.

u/quanzi1507 · 3 pointsr/gpdwin

Overpriced IMO.

Same 128GB SanDisk Ultra, $43.99, not even on sale, comes with an adapter for free:

I can't see how being "made for Amazon" justifies a higher price tag. If anything it should be cheaper than the "standard packaging" one.

Concerning compatibility, I'm using the 200GB version which I grabbed for $40-ish last Black Friday. Zero issue so far. Didn't even need to use GPD Win Keepalive.

u/sonic260 · 3 pointsr/nintendo

Then just buy an SD card. A Nintendo switch is $300 and a 128gb micro SD card is $40, totalling to $340. An iPhone 7 plus with the same capacity is $750. You're already paying less than half the cost of an iPhone for the same capacity.

If you want more than 32GB, then just go get more.

EDIT: Edit, sorry, regular iPhone 7, not plus. The plus adds an extra $100 for its price, but still way more expensive than a Switch + Micro SD.

You said that average consumers definitive don't buy SD cards, I didn't phrase my statement that strongly and at least provided the minimum of anecdotal evidence.

  • Anyway, if micro SD cards aren't popular why do all major phone makers but Apple and Google have SD card slots in their phones?

  • Why did Samsung feel forced to switch back to having SD card support in its top of the line phones after getting rid of it with the S6 / Note 5 redesign?

  • Why are micro SD cards available in all mainstream consumer electronic retailers, usually placed right next to phones?

  • Why do micro SD cards seem so popular on, like for example this 128 GB Sandisk one which has double the number of ratings than the most rated Playstation 4 SKU?

  • Why is the market for SD cards still projected to increase ($21.3 billion by the year 2018) even more when at the same time the market for digital cameras is shrinking?

  • Why is the industry naming phones as the main driver behind that continued increase?

    Its funny how they guy who argues that normal consumers definitive don't use SD cards is of course a person that made the decision to buy a phone that doesn't support SD cards...

Here's a charger for 3.99

You're spending too much on your hdmi cables, unless you're running 4K or need your Raspberry Pi for FPS games, then a dollar store one should be fine. Even some of those support 4K 60hz (hdmi 2.0)
Here's one for 1.50

As for the micro SD card, I would say you wouldn't need nearly that much space and MicroSD cards are getting much cheaper. Pi can only play old games which won't take up much room anyway. 16gb is plenty.
Or this one

So all in after the $35 pi, which if you're getting one of the older versions would be cheaper, it'll cost you just under 50 USD and you get the fun of building it.

The other poster is wrong about there being no such thing as a high endurance SD card. The dashcam manual specifies that you must use a "class 10" MicroSD. This MicroSD is class 2 and would likely fail after six months to a year (and given my luck, it would fail 15 minutes before I was in an accident, haha).

If you check /r/dashcam there is some good discussion there about what MicroSD cards are appropriate and what cams are best.

I built one earlier this year (and another for a friend):

  • Pi3, $37
  • case, $6
  • power supply, $10
  • microSD card, $10

    So for about $60, you have the hardware. Assembly is easy. The software part is relatively trivial:

  • Download ROMs
  • Download disk image for RetroPi
  • Install the image (download a tool to help) onto the SD card (may need a USB adapter)
  • Upload the ROMs on to the image
  • Plug it in to your TV

    It works with a wide array of controllers. I use my PS4 controllers with it and it works like a champ.

I’ve also been having corruption issues with smash ultimate and is using the card from that amazon page:

Smash seems to be the only game that I’ve been having problems with and it also only started happening after the new DLC character. The first time it happened while I was loading Spirit Board. The second time was after playing a couple of Smash Mode games with a CPU, and the next day I just starting the game back up and it was corrupted... Then it happened while playing Classic Mode with Richter. And today it happened twice while playing online. So, I’ve reinstalled my game 5 times so far. And it doesn’t seem like anything I do is safe. I’m going to try switching SD cards to see if it will make a difference.

So random data for the record:

  • I’ve collected all of the spirits
  • The switch I have is the special edition Smash Ultimate
  • The version of Smash I have is a digital download.

    I’ve only played one other game on my Switch since this corruption started happening and that game is Dragon Quest Builders.

    Update: I got a new SanDisk 128GB from Best Buy yesterday. Loaded it into my Switch for initial formatting and then copied the files from my old MicroSD card to my new one--overriding everything. The game play was smooth for that night. I played 3 hours with no corruption. However, this morning, I got the corruption notice after about 15 minutes of game play. This time it was after an online match against Lucina while playing as Donkey Kong. No common case of issue from my experiences. Going to see if I will get a corruption error again tonight.

in general, i would not recommend off brands like those...
Just the fact that the brand isn't one of the top brands (samsung or sandisk), so I don't really trust it.
Also all 4 ratings are 5 stars, and posted on the same day, they could definitely be fake, beware of offbrands, lots of fake ones being sold.


This is a great 256gb one, and it's 40$ (only 16$ more than the one you linked). Sure it;s more expensive, but you can trust it blindly.

You dont want ot risk loosing all your data on a "Boston" sd card, just for a few bucks right?

Also, the one you linked is U1, while the one I linked is U3. U3 is better, faster.

Thats what i recommend, do whatever you please :)

I personally am waiting for Black Friday to get the 512gb version of the one I linked. I imagine it'll drop around 50$ by then :)

I also don't know if you are serious, and this sub isn't for real advice, but nonetheless, here's how you can do it.

  1. Get one or more of a simple, easy to use mp3 player such as the SanDisk Clip Jam.

  2. Buy a name-brand (such as SanDisk, Samsung, or Kingston) microSDHC card up to 32 GB.

  3. Buy songs/tracks as DRM-free AAC files from iTunes and MP3s from The tracks/files from those two services do not rely on having an account anywhere after you download them.

  4. Download and save the the tracks/files from iTunes and/or Amazon MP3 somewhere on your computer.

  5. Copy the files to the microSD card.

  6. Insert the microSD card into the player.

  7. Give the player to your parents.

  8. Show them how to use the player. Show how them to insert and remove the microSD card. To give them additional or different songs, exchange microSD cards with them as needed or give them additional microSD cards as needed.


  9. Install Chrome on their computer.

  10. Install and configure the Chrome Remote Desktop add-on on their conputer and your own computer.

  11. Test Chrome Remote Desktop to control their computer from your computer. You will use it at the very least to assist them if they have questions/need help.

  12. Show them how to how to use mp3 player and how to connect it to their computer.

  13. Either:

  14. Use Chrome Remote Desktop to connect and control their computer and using an account of your choice, open Amazon MP3 or iTunes, and buy and download the tracks.

  15. Or, teach them how to buy and download the tracks. Amazon and iTunes lets you create sub accounts that you control, so you could create a sub account for your parents and load money into it.

  16. Have them connect the MP3 player to the computer.

  17. Either transfer the tracks over to the player using remote control, or teach your parents how to do that.

So a $500 s6 128gb/6gb new or a $385 s5e 128gb/6gb ram renewed

The micro sd card barely counts as you could get a 400gb card with that gift card

400GB should work. I run 256GB SanDisk microSD's in five Nintendo Classics with zero issues. I find 256GB is way too large so not sure what you'll do with 400GB, but at that size, Now You're Playing With Power!
Here are my card specs. Any faster and the microSD card is more than the Classic can handle so it would be wasted $.

u/maxnreba · 3 pointsr/TeslaModel3

I have been using this Samsung PRO Endurance 128GB Micro SDXC Card card since April with no issues at all. I selected it after researching the best memory cards for dashcams. It needs to be a “high endurance” Type.

u/OfcWaffle · 3 pointsr/WRX

I’m running the Samsung Pro Endurance 128gb. When looking for a SD card you need to make sure to buy the right type. I did a lot of research and a lot of sites recommended this card. When looking for an SD card for a dash cam you need to make sure they are endurance cards. These cards can handle the constant read and writes and high/low temperatures.

Samsung 128GB 80MB/s EVO Select Micro SDXC Memory Card (MB-ME128DA/AM)

u/ralfwolf · 3 pointsr/linuxquestions

If he's been talking about getting one, then you can't go wrong with a really basic kit. There are some kits with the micro-sd flash card but IMHO they charge too high of a premium for those. Here's a 32GB micro sd card I've used with no problems and very cost effective. From there, you will have to figure out what he wants to do with it. If he wants to run a media server for instance, you'll want to get a bigger micro sd card or get an external usb hdd. There are literally over 100 different sensors that can be used in Rpi projects so having some idea of what he wants to try would really help. Popular projects are things like pet feeders or light controllers or "magic mirrors". You can google and find detailed instructions and shopping lists for these types of projects. You can get him a starter set of common sensors like this or this for home automation. These kits are good if he doesn't know what he wants to do and just wants to tinker around but if he knows what project he wants to do, then it's better to get the basic kit and an amazon gift card so he can buy exactly what he needs.

A kit I always thought would be a cool gift for someone interested in Raspberry Pi is a retro gaming kit which will run old arcade games. The kit I linked has a usb drive with the game ROMs included but at a $10 premium. You can opt for the cheaper kit and download the ROMs from various sources online. This give him a something fun to start with and he can always pull the Rpi out and buy another flash and use it with sensors or other projects in the future.

My camera won't let me record on this card because it's too slow. You need the faster U-3 cards which aren't that much more. You can find U-3 cards for around $45.

Samsung 128GB 100MB/s (U3) MicroSD EVO Select Memory Card with Adapter (MB-ME128GA/AM)

u/bizcocho1305 · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

you do need at least a class 10 or UHS-1 which i believe is around 100Mb/s, above that it won't do any difference. i reccomned you to check Amazon exclusive Samsung Evo cards. Like this one

u/Trophlin · 3 pointsr/Dashcam

Look for high endurance cards for 64gb and less. If you need a larger card (i.e. 128gb & greater) Samsung EVO Select has been a reliable card thus far.

High endurance cards are only listed in 32gb & 64gb variants which are MLC (you won't find "high endurance" labeled cards for 128gb and up). Once you go 128gb and larger the prices for MLC cards shoot up astronomically and isn't a realistic option for most people especially if you find a card for less that works just as good (even if it's not MLC such as the Samsung card I linked).

u/voice_of_reason_61 · 3 pointsr/MVIS

Suggestion for you:

Get something like this

And a good 128 gb microSD card, maybe

Initialize the card in the bit.

Put your vacation pictures on the card every year (or whatever frequency you vacation) and put the card in the bit.

If you don't use it a LOT more, I'd be very surprised.

This made all the difference for me, and utilizes (untethered to your phone and/or camera) the very best of what the 'Bit offers.



u/Slayer_Blake · 3 pointsr/buildapcsales

I feel like for a couple more dollars... a Samsung 128gb MicroSD for 19.49 and a usb adapter may be a better buy long-term

u/Kanonhime · 3 pointsr/vitahacks

You never want to go with a "random guy"'; always check the reviews and seller feedback. Memory cards are often hacked to display higher storage than they actually have, because it's extremely cheap and easy to do.

Here's another option through Amazon for $25.

u/glah · 3 pointsr/Surface

Amazon has some Kingston drives on sale today for a good price. $16 for 32GB and $35 for 64GB.

I use the SanDisk 64GB card which isn't too much more expensive (it sometimes goes on "extra?" sale for a little bit less). It works well, no surprises.

u/RokBoks · 3 pointsr/hiphopheads

alright i got you get one of the sansa players with a micro sd slot, the clip+ is the smallest shit ever so you can take it anywhere.

then pick up either a 32 gb class 10 micro sd card on amazon for 23 bucks or you can go all out and get a 64 gb micro sd card for 50 bucks.

32GB Micro SD

64GB Micro SD

u/JohnnySteel · 3 pointsr/3DS

I saw someone do a breakdown of a bunch of cards and out of those I ended up getting this one and it's been awesome. Super fast. No complaints.

u/rolfraikou · 3 pointsr/IdiotsInCars

For consistency's sake, here's a link to the one I got

Built in screen lets you review video from the camera itself. Saves to micro SD card. I highly suggest getting one like this "SanDisk High Endurance Video Monitoring Card" made specifically sustained constant writes. (Since it is constantly saving video)

It plugs in via USB to the cigarette lighter thingy in your car. I got one like this so I would have extra USB ports for charging phones, while still having my two spots for the dash cams. It comes with its own which I think has two USB ports total. I just wanted more ports.

When the device receives power, it boots up on its own, and turns off on its own when you turn off the car.

The way it writes video, it saves it in increments that are a few minutes long (You can set the duration) and when the SD card runs out of space, it just over-writes the oldest movie it has saved.

If you get in an accident, or just see something neat you want to save, there's a button you can press to make sure it saves the specific movie.

Since you'd have the long cables routing all over your vehicle, it's wise to route it so it doesn't get in the way/is hidden. I actually did need longer cables, but fortunately this dashcam uses a mini USB to standard USB.

EDIT: If you do not have a computer (and only a phone or tablet) your options for transferring the files from the Micro SD card are either getting an adapter to read micro SD on your respective phone or tablet, or buying a dashcam specifically with bluetooth connectivity if you would rather go that route.

u/BlakDrgn · 3 pointsr/Dashcam

word of advice. If the built in dashcam is cyclic recording to that usb, you should probably opt for a high endurance SD card and an adapter.

If it only dumps a file to it when you hit save, USB stick would be fine.

Look on the stick and see if theres a folder with a bunch of video files that you didnt save, and/or if the stick is constantly full when you plug it into your computer. If its full, its cyclic recording, and will wear out quickly.

u/trentblase · 3 pointsr/technology

SanDisk High Endurance Video Monitoring Card with Adapter 64GB (SDSDQQ-064G-G46A)

u/TheEnigmaBlade · 3 pointsr/gifs

It never gets full because it loops over the oldest recordings. I have a 64 GB card (and the exact same dash cam) and it stores a little over 4 days of 4K 30 FPS video at a little less than 2 hours per day. I only remove the card if I want to pull a recording off, otherwise I leave it in.

It's also important that get a high endurance SD card because the camera is constantly writing to the card for extended periods of time. Normal SD cards will fail after a couple months.

It's powered through USB (if your car has USB ports like mine), but also comes with an adapter for the cigarette lighter DC power outlet.

u/SwissMidget · 3 pointsr/TalesFromThePizzaGuy

Check this one out. It's the one I have. It has both a front and rear camera. Apparently it takes a specific kind of SD card like this one. Definitely glad I got mine as I do a ton of driving for work.

u/flipdark95 · 3 pointsr/Games

How are microSDs extremely expensive storage? Unless you're going for the latest cards that have a whopping 500gbs of storage on them, at most you can get a 128gb one for about $70 dollars depending on where you go. Even 200gb ones are under $100 dollars on Amazon.

u/Shhh_ImHiding · 3 pointsr/gadgets

Ah, more money to spend then, great.

Edit: also if you mean a card like this be aware it doesn't really blow any HDD. Speeds are great(90MB/s read) sure but nothing that blows it away while still being 5x more expensive than an HDD in price per GB. Btw, don't mistake this as me wanting an HDD in the Switch, that would be extremely dumb. Just that 32GB is extremely limited and after buying a console I really don't want to have to buy a microSD card so I can actually store things in it. Still, better have the option than to not have

u/Pyro62S · 3 pointsr/Games

Are you serious right now? Here's a micro SD card with 200 GB of storage. Its dimensions are 0.04 x 0.59 x 0.43 inches, and it weighs 0.3 ounces. GTA V would fit on this thing like three times over.

u/Sempuukyaku · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

What's hilarious about his argument, is that the consumer saves a ton in the end by just getting a micro SD card as opposed to relying on Nintendo to add the amount of NAND memory he wants. You can get a 200gb MicroSD card right now for $76 bucks

You definitely don't need to get an SD card before you turn on your Switch for the first time, but it's definitely something you'll want to do sooner rather than later if you prefer buying digital. If you really want to max out the storage, I'd go with [this one.] ( It's a 200 GB SanDisk card that goes for around $70. If you don't think you'll need quite that much and want a somewhat better price per gig, 128 GB cards regularly go on sale for $40 at Amazon or other retailers.

u/EricHerboso · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

I bought a different model back when I bought a Switch at launch. It's now also at the $59.99 price, also 200GB. (Mine is the SDSDQUAN-200G-G4A; the OP is the SDSQUAR-200G-GN6MA.)

I have had no problems with my micro sd card. It's worked as advertised from the day I bought it (March 2017) to today and I'm completely happy with continuing to use this sd card in my Switch.

However, I should note that the OP's linked sd card has a 10% increased read/write speed than the one I use. I'm not sure if the Switch hardware takes advantage of this increase, though. If you're looking for reliability, you may want to look at buying the card I use. But I don't have any experience with the OP's sd card, so I don't know if the 10% increase in read/write speed makes a difference worth pursuing, especially given that they have the same price.

u/delorean623 · 3 pointsr/GalaxyTab

Download OpenMediaVault image, and write to SD card with Etcher. Insert SD into Rock64 and boot. Login to your router to find Rock64 IP address. Type IP address into web browser to access OpenMediaVault, go to plugins, and install Transmission(torrent software), and then enable root SSH access in SSH settings.

except you arent supporting the software, is the creator of the v2 software, openip just forked the code and sells the sdcards. if you wanted to support the actual devs of the software then you should donate to the people who do the actual coding of it.

u/ubergeek77 · 3 pointsr/VitaPiracy

I already have a 128GB Class U-3 Samsung card, and I'm perfectly happy with it. But, if I were to buy a bigger one, I'd get this one, no question:

For a class U-1 microSD card, I'd say ~$80 is a very reasonable price. You probably won't notice the difference between Class U-1 and Class U-3 speeds, but I would highly recommend only getting a card that's class 10 or higher. If you get anything slower, especially class 2 or 4, you'll likely notice long load times in some games. That can get annoying pretty fast. Plus, when you're transferring games from your computer, especially en masse, you will definitely care about speeds more than you would while playing.

Oh, and about other brands, or getting something cheap from AliExpress, I would highly recommend that you don't do that. I've only had to make that mistake a few times before ever doing it again. For some reason, knock off cards are a gamble when it comes to quality, and I always end up with the junk ones :/

Does this sd card on amazon work in the Switch? I think it does but want to confirm before purchasing.

u/Slamdunkin48 · 3 pointsr/Switch

The switch definitely has the possibility for many accessories. I'll link all the stuff I've bought at the end because I would recommend all of them

There is built in storage but not enough. I will recommend any micro SD card that's either 64 or 128 gb depending on how many games you plan on downloading. If you're going mostly mobile eshop games would definitely be more convenient.

As for other items, I love my pro controller but its not a necessity. I also only use it at home so it might not be for you.

You need a case for it, no two ways about it. The good news is that they are pretty cheap. There's cases that just carry the console, that carry the console and some extras, and that carry pretty much everything you could want to carry. Unless you're taking the dock often, I would just suggest a case with some extra storage.

I'd suggest a battery bank. There are a million options out there, and most of it has to do with cost. Just buy a size you like from a trusted brand like anker, ravpower, or aukey.

You also need a screen protector, because the plastic screen is not exactly durable. Anything works, but I would recommend tempered glass.

The old model battery is 2.5hrs-6.5hrs, depending on game and other factors.
The new model is 4.5hrs - 9hrs, again, depending on game and other factors.

The newer model also has a brighter handheld screen.
And, as much as you say you PLAN on being docked most of the time, you will find times and excuses to undock and take it along. (I never realized how much I wanted Fire Emblem 3 Houses with me when I had the tires put on the car...)

With that being said, a 200GB microSD for sure. Best price per GB and 200GB is quite a lot of games loaded.

I also suggest a grip for handheld with a case that fits the grip.
Again, i know you dont plan on being portable, but the Grip is GREAT when you are playing handheld, and a case is required for portable. And you'll want a case that fits it.
I suggest this one Switch GoPlay

u/ITeachInTheGhetto · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Tldr: my SD card loads games a lot slower than my friends cartridge.

I've seen a few sources that say, as far as speed goes, internal memory is faster than SD cards is faster than the cartridge. The cartridge and SD card are close.
I was playing Mario kart with a friend and his load times for each map were more than 15-20 seconds faster than mine, he was using a cartridge and I was using an SD card. Anyone else experiencing this?

Edit: tried two more times and it was much, much closer. Maybe a better question to ask is, approximately how long does it take your system to load up a Mario kart map?

I thought I bought the recommended card but maybe not?

We each loaded a game stored on our sd cards and they loaded at the same pace, not that that is relevant.

u/TheMentalist10 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitchDeals

Average of the last 50 price changes on Amazon is £63.96; Argos seem to be charging £84.99 for some reason.

Not a historic low according to CamelCamelCamel, but not far off.

u/hermanbloom00 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

What sort of size are games these days? I ask as got a Switch about a month after it came out and buy a mixture of physical and digital. I got 128GB SanDisk at the time and only now is it close to full. So I was thinking about this: though I am a bit loathe to give Amazon my cash. But either way, I see people talking about much higher cards but I assume they are just buying tons more digital games than me (I tend to buy one a month, mixture of Indie and Full Price games).

u/precisionV · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Yeah, this is the faster sd card that is the Deal of the Day at Amazon: 128GB - 100MB/s U1 A1

I have used these two:

u/Plastic_Mouldsman · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch
u/Aspirant_Fool · 2 pointsr/techsupport

Acer's website says it supports SDXC cards - they're not super expensive.

It'll still be a hassle, because you'll have to do some additional work to make sure you store everything there and keep the built-in 32GB as free as possible for Windows updates and stuff, and it won't be as fast as an SSD, but short of replacing the laptop, I think it's your best bet.

u/-BreakingPoint0 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Personally this is what I got:

What else is there to say other than it just worked? Seems to work great with the Switch. I paid $40 which is pretty good. The SanDisk one is also supposed to be pretty good and it's on sale as well:

I would personally go with one of those two.

Size is subjective. I got 128GB to be on the larger size. Wasn't a huge jump in price and figured with the way I'm going to use Switch I will most likely need it. So rather than buy another later on I just spent the extra to get the big one.

u/Tag365 · 2 pointsr/PSP

If you get a Micro SD Card along with a Memory Stick Duo adaptor, make sure to verify that the SD Card is a legitimate card with its advertised storage capacity with H2testw on your computer. You'll likely need to insert the Micro SD Card into the included Micro SD Card to SD Card adaptor to insert it into your computer. It can take hours to verify the entire SD Card, but this should allow you to figure out right away if it is a counterfeit card like the one you had before. If it says that "The media is likely to be defective," it is a counterfeit card, and the program window will likely turn red to alert you to this fact. Otherwise, it is likely to be a legit card.


Oh, and when you insert it to the PSP for the first time the PSP system will tell you to format it. Do so, otherwise it cannot be used. If it fails, try formatting it as a FAT32 storage device using your computer. I hope this helps your decision.

If you're looking for an SD card, I found this 128 GB Micro SD Card for around $20.

Are you in the US? If so and you can hold out, you are going to find a bunch of great deals on Micro SD cards on Black Friday/Cyber Monday, so I'd wait until then.

Regardless, $34 is expensive for a 128gb micro sd card. You do not need to use a Nintendo-licensed micro sd for the switch - any micro sd is compatible. It's not like the Vita/PS TV where you need Sony specific cards.

EDIT: Just looking on Amazon shows a Sandisk 128gb micro sd for $22.88

try searching the ASIN.

for instance, take this product (not a shirt, but the process should be the same):

first result is the Amazon listing. I also see a link to CamelCamelCamel as well as the following link:

u/Gen_Tsos_Koolaid · 2 pointsr/AndroidQuestions

>What is the lowest read/write speed that is enough for storing images and videos? For apps?

You'd be ok with a class 10 micro SD card if you are not going to be recording 4k video. Class 10 SD cards are good for photos and full HD video(1080p). Regarding apps, all of them should be ok.

>I've heard that pixel devices can configure SD card as internal storage. Can someone explain that to me?

Basically the phones OS sees the SD card as an extension of the phones internal storage. This can be a good or bad thing depending on how the OS handles storing information. If the SD card fails, some apps and/or app data may become corrupted and most likely will have to be reinstalled. I'm spit balling on this one. I've personally never experienced this first hand on a mobile device, just PCs.

>Can it be used for installing apps on SD card that don't allow to be on SD card?

That depends on the example above. How the OS sees the information. However, if you're using an app to move apps to the SD card, then only those apps capable will be able to be moved. Most of the time it's not even the full app that was moved, just some of its functioning data.

>Does encryption decrease the amount of space or read/write speeds in an SD card?

No, but it does slow down the read/write speed of data. Additionally, I would recommend encrypting something before data is put on. This way the sd card/drive will encrypt faster.

>Why do SD cards have less space?

>Is encryption revertable?

Yes, and it will take longer to decrypt if there is information on the drive.

I'm looking at the SanDisk Ultra 400GB microSDXC UHS-I card is great less than $80.

A 256Gb can get even cheaper almost half that price.

The .NSP install time for the U1 card seems extremely long. RE Revelations 2's file size is 26gb.

In my experience, it typically only takes 15 to 20 minutes to install that size of NSPs, when writing to from my U1 microSD card to itself. Your 53+ minutes experience is much much longer than typical, at least compared to my U1 256gb Sandisk card (link).

What are you using to install NSPs? Tinfoil?

u/Blubkill · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

ofcourse the post doesnt mention it as it would be bad mouthing of the particular product. the wiki article i linked is objectivley based.

but it clearly say's that it needs to have read speeds between 60 MB/s and 95 MB/s and thats the only requirement for the SD card.

now the nintendo branded ones, are even from the same manufacturer than the alternatives, do you actually believe they produce a whole new sort of sd card sololey because nintendo asked them to do so?

just compare:

thats the nintendo branded one, it even says sandisk on the card itself.

and this:

is the very same card, without nintendo brand for about 15-20 bucks less.

u/Dweezicus · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Format the memory card as FAT32 (you will need to search google how to do this on a large storage device - the built-in Windows option won’t do it) and put a single folder in it called “TeslaCam” (without quotes) and that’s it for setup. Plug the memory card into the reader and plug it into one of the front USB ports in the car, and then you should be good to go. Make sure you’ve got a little camera icon at the top right corner of the Model 3’s screen that indicates recording.

u/drmacinyasha · 2 pointsr/Sacramento

I've been pretty happy with Blackvue cams. I've owned the DR650S-2CH and DR750S-2CH, both of which include a model of rear-facing camera you can mount internally (e.g., Lyft/Uber driver) or on the back window, or one that can mount to the cab of your truck, or has IR LEDs to see in the car at night. They've worked well, and the hardwiring kits are pretty nice with options to turn off automatically after X hours or when the battery reaches a certain voltage.

My DR650S eventually died, I think due to electrical issues my car's ECU was causing. Most of the other electronics started going wonky until the ECU gave up the ghost and caused an explosion in the intake manifold, cracking half the engine. Until it fried, it was very reliable as long as the cheap microSD card I was using needed to be reformatted, and the videos it recorded were pretty decent.

On my current car I've installed the DR750S just recently. This time instead of the Power Magic Pro hardwiring kit, I decided to go with the Power Magic Battery Pack. The battery's hardwired into the electrical system on a circuit that only has power when the car's running, and I placed the battery in the glove compartment so that I can use the USB ports on it if needed for like a Wi-Fi hotspot. The 750S has been fantastic and the video quality's great. Just gotta take the time to adjust the accelerometer sensitivity and whatnot.

I also picked up a polarized lens filter which fit both models, and that helps cut down on the glare and helps keep the video from getting too bright. I also picked up much better microSD cards for the 750 to avoid the issues I had on the 650. The only real complaints I've had with them are around the apps used to connect to the camera (both desktop and mobile), and the Wi-Fi support. Basically, both units only have 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi, and can only support network SSIDs and passwords of up to a certain length. I have the Wi-Fi access point closest to the garage transmitting a second network just for the dashcam to connect to as a result. The apps feel very much like someone's one-day project when you use them, but more frustrating is that you can only sign-in on one device at a time. So if you sign-in to desktop, it'll sign you out of the mobile app, and vice-versa.

u/bumblebee851 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

considering the current black friday deals on microsd cards (, I'd recommend buying a higher capacity microsd now for the inevitability of needing one in the future.

u/LostMyLastAccount · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Here is a Reddit thread someone posted awhile ago.

Just a quick rundown though. We don't know the SD Card readers capabilities on the Switch, so most people are just getting the Class 10 cards (typically referring to the read speed of the card) these cards have somewhere in the range of 80 MB/s to 95 MB/s. Also, SanDisk and Samsung are some of the most reliable brands on the market right now and I have never had a problem with either.

Personally, I got a Class 10 - 128 GB micro SD card off of amazon.

u/Ugly_Muse · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Amazon has similar 128GB cards here.

Trying to get the same speed still shows slight savings grabbing two of these.

I think paying a premium for having such a large mSD isn't worth it. Better off grabbing smaller 128 (how many games are you realistically going to put on it to begin with?). If that's not enough, maybe an external drive would be a good option anyway.

It's all up to preference, but I won't be grabbing anything bigger than the 128GB for mine.

You can also go to a small computer shop in Greece and ask if they can order one for you, might cost more for their effort, but if you don't have a debit card/credit card then that's your only choice.

Yep. The only complaint I have about the waterproof housing is that you can't get a red filter for it for scuba diving. However there are other inexpensive cases that will work with the camera that do have red filters, so it's not a big deal. There's also software to correct the blue cast.

I have a Surface 3 as well and the first thing I bought with it was a 128gb microSD card. This one to be exact:

I've had both the Surface and the card since Black Friday and I've only had problems with it not staying mounted once, which was the same day I got it. I use my Surface every day. I keep all my music, movies, extra documents for work, and things like that on it and have not had any problems with anything. I don't use it for gaming, however, so I can't help you there. But, so far so good otherwise. Maybe check that out!

Also, I'm curious. What kind of games do you play on your Surface 3? I bought it for work and not for games, but I'm about to fly from Korea to Louisiana soon and some gaming options would be nice. I've never been into PC gaming, I'm a console peasant. What's the best way for me to look into what I can do with my Surface 3?

I'd recommend getting an SD card with a faster read/write speed.
A class 4 SD card will give you longer load times.
You might have probably ordered the one you posted already, but I thought I should share this anyway.

It's a UHS I Micro SD card with an adapter for a regular SD Card slot. [Link: Amazon]

I used the same one with the adapter in my original 3DS and I have the same one in my N3DSXL right now. (albeit without the adapter) The faster speed does make a difference in load times and loading up games.

u/VoomPeng · 2 pointsr/RetroPie

I looked up Pitendo and my god is that a ripoff, there's maybe 60 bucks worth of things there. Here, look:

And whichever one of these you want

Is all you need, and you can honestly go for a Pi 2 Model B if you want to, and a smaller sd card maybe. Everything but the most demanding Dreamcast and N64 games work great on a 2, and N64 hardly works regardless of the model.

Honestly it's not a difficult set up, at least in my opinion. There's some troubleshooting you can do if you try and work out some more advanced things, but the basic set up is a breeze.

All you do is download the RetroPie image from the site, download Win32DiskImager, and write it to the card. It takes about 30 seconds to set up and maybe 3 clicks total.

After that, you put the microsd card into the pi, plug in your controllers, boot it up, follow the on screen controller config, and you're good to go.

Adding roms is as easy as putting in \\Retropie into any explorer window on you computer, if the pi is on your network, and dropping them into the console's folder. Everything else should be auto-configured and require little to no work on your end.

  • not true 1080p, it records in 720p then upscales it to 1080p. Video is still clear enough for liability reasons and sharing stupid stuff like this, but if you're gonna film your next track day you may be slightly disappointed with quality.
  • directions are in pretty bad engrish, if you get directions at all. I still haven't figured out how to change the time stamp.

  • it claims to have infrared night vision, but I honestly can't see any real improvement over my Contour helmetcam which doesn't have IR. There's a chance it needs to be turned on but I haven't figured it out yet due to Engrish instructions.
  • decent sound pickup, but it can be overwhelmed if you listen to bass heavy music. This is partially because the area between your dashboard and your windshield likes to trap the bass.

    All in all, I'm happy with my purchase, though I only paid $50 for it. I'm planning to buy another one to point backwards at some point in the future. I also plan to hard wire them into my truck so that I don't have ugly cigarette plugs in every power port of my truck.

    I do wish I could mount it up higher on my windshield, but my windshield has a bunch of dots along the top for aesthetic and sun blockage, and the suction cup won't stick over those dots :/
u/ben8jam · 2 pointsr/raspberry_pi

If you buy individually you save a few dollars. I already had an HDMI cable, so didn't need to buy one. Also the micro-SD card comes with a adapter to full size SD card, so don't need the USB converter (unless you don't have an SD card reader), plus you get a brand name card. My kit was only 39.99, looks like price up $3, so it might go back down to 39.99 again.

Comes out to $66.50 (and less if you don't need an HDMI cable).

It depends on which Samsung ones and which Sandisk ones are you talking about.

I'm looking at the prices on Amazon, a 32 GB EVO Select from Samsung is $10, while a 32 GB Sandisk Ultra is $15, and both of them claim the same "up to 80 MB/s transfer speed", but I'm sure that's just the read speed and write speeds might be better on the Sandisk, hence why it's more expensive, but I haven't checked so I'm not sure.

I haven't heard of Samsung's Evo Select line before, judging from the price I assume it's a cheaper and worse performing line than the Evo, but you can also buy a 32 GB Samsung Evo+ for $15, so Samsung microSD's aren't more expensive.

u/edinc90 · 2 pointsr/videography

I'm going to assume you have the camera, a battery, and a housing.

You'll need a suction cup mount, and a micro SD card, class 10 or higher. The Hero4 supports up to 128 GB. The Hero3 is 64 GB, and the Hero supports up to 32 GB.

The capacity will be determined by how much footage you want to record. At 1080 30 fps you will get just under 3 hrs of record time on a 64 GB card.

u/Magillif · 2 pointsr/3DS

This is the SD card that I got. It is 32 GB. For the price difference between 16 and 32 (~$4), I thought 32 was worth it. I did not have to reformat it or anything. It was great. No problems thus far.

If you're interested, I have 13 GB left and have installed:

  • Monster Hunter Gen
  • Paper Jam
  • ACNL
  • Fire Emblem Awakening
  • Fantasy Life
  • Rune Factory 4
  • Mario Kart 7
  • Bravely Default (and Second)
  • Story of Seasons
  • Harvest Moon: A New Beginning
  • Pokemon Y
  • Happy Home Designers
  • Random stuff that doesn't consume much data (pushmo, SNES converts, pocket jockey, etc.)

    For 10-20 games, I'm inclined to say you might be more satisfied with a 32 GB SD. Hope that helps! Happy gaming :)

The parts I ordered were:
Raspberry Pi 3 - $35.97
PiTFT Plus 480x320 3.5" - $38.91
Sandisk Ultra 32GB - $13.95
Total: $88.83

I'll be hardwiring it using an Ethernet cable even though the Raspberry Pi 3 comes wifi enabled.

If you were to get the OctoPi Kit it would cost about $155.36 and wouldn't even come with a touch screen.

u/kiiingbob · 2 pointsr/3DS

I'm getting a New 3DS XL for X-mas so I was in the same boat as you, on google/reddit/amazon/youtube I was looking to see what I should get. Here's what I ultimately decided on:

u/godblesssloots · 2 pointsr/CalamariRaceTeam

This one. $12, 32gigs, 80mbps. Just remember, before you use it, go to settings, scroll all the way down, and hit "format memory card".

But I would try formatting your card first before spending the money.

u/Dain42 · 2 pointsr/Games

With the SD cards and the internal storage, it's possible that they're going to be doing some caching of assets that are likely to be needed soon to the onboard storage when playing games. That would be a possible way to get around people who buy the cheapest, slowest SD cards. They could also warn when a cheap, slow SD card is inserted and that it may slow things down.

But you're quite correct that newer SD cards have vastly improved read-write speeds. U3 cards are still a bit pricier than others, but not really too much more than a C10/U1 card. And if you look at the read speeds, you're getting 80-90 MB/s, which isn't that far off from a mid-range hard drive like a WD Blue.


u/bungiefan_AK · 2 pointsr/3dshacks

Some data is compared against what is internal to the system. Juggling multiple cards is not recommended. Why not just get a bigger card and move the data to it? 64 GB cards on Amazon are under $20 last I checked.

Just over $20 right now.

u/MetaRyan25 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I got this SanDisk 64GB microSD card on sale for $14 $15 on Amazon. Sure, the read-speeds only go up to 80 MB/s, but usually the games that would really benefit from higher read-speeds are also released physically, and I'm buying physically when I can so I get the 20% Prime discount.

Edit: According to CamelCamelCamel, the lowest that SD card has ever been on Amazon is $15, so I guess I bought it for $15, not $14.

u/Atari_5200 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Good thing a quality 64GB micro SDXC card is only about $16

u/foogles · 2 pointsr/SBCGaming

This is my favorite set up to give friends. Looks good and mostly foolproof hardware wise!

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B

Rasptendo SNES Case (IMO, connect the power button as intended, but either solder the reset button as per the method mentioned in there or don't connect it at all. This way there's no way for the user to do a non-safe shutdown of the OS)

Dual fan heatsink

Bluetooth adapter (more reliable than built-in bluetooth, change /boot/config.txt to disable onboard Bluetooth)

PS3 SIXAXIS Controller (Dualshock 3's work too, but I like the legit OEM ones, and those are hard to find. The convincing bootlegs/fakes are usually impossible to tell apart from legit ones when ordering online. That's why I look for used SIXAXIS controllers - no bootlegs. Also, I use PS3 controllers because pairing can be done or re-done entirely by connecting up mini-USB cables. No menus necessary once you set it up the first time!)

Sandisk 64GB MicroSD

Canakit PSU

HDMI cable, Mini-USB cable.


For a more serious, less user-friendly but more overclockable setup, ditch the case/heatsink above and go with these instead:

Some kind of heatsink, I'm using one from the Kintaro case but I suspect the cheap stick-on heatsinks are probably fine too

this open-air case (throw out the fan as it's way too loud... I'm sure other open-air cases will work but I like that this one has the 40mm setup for the below fan and the little grille to prevent curious fingers from getting in there at least)

this Noctua 40mm 5v fan (expensive, but quiet and provides solid cooling)

u/jscythe · 2 pointsr/linuxmasterrace

I see physical media for games as changing again. For those games that can be run natively, I think SD cards will become more prominent. A regular blu ray disc can hold 25GB of data. A dual-layer blu ray can hold 50GB. We already have SD cards that can hold 64GB. The only reason DVDs and blu ray discs are still used for physical format is because they are much cheaper to produce at scale.

But having "locked in" physical media will (theoretically) place limits on piracy. More likely, I can see physical releases being more of a collector's item sort of thing. You are essentially paying for the box itself and not for the game. Since the media itself is scarce, it has more value than the data it contains. Not unlike the modern board game market really.

u/tomkatt · 2 pointsr/emulation

$35 is just for the Pi 3 itself. You can find Pi cases pretty cheap, like $7-$10. From there it's the HDMI cable (which you probably already have laying around), MicroSD card, and power supply.

It's powered over USB to outlet wart plug. 2.5a is recommended, but you can probably get away with 2.0a or 2.1a, which is more common. Or buy a full standalone power plug for it. Assuming you don't have a microSD card, 32GB is only ~$10 these days, and you can get a 64GB one for about double that.

So total cost might be around $50-75 depending on accessories and what you already have at hand versus what you need to buy. Still quite cheap for a retro emulation rig (and can always be repurposed as something cool like a firewall or mini-PC or something, since there are Linux builds for the Pi as well).

u/Seilaerion · 2 pointsr/MonsterHunter

Go to Settings -> Data Management -> 3DS -> Save-Data Backup

See if Monster Hunter 4U will allow you to backup your data. Most games will. I have a physical copy, so I can't check myself. If it does allow it, then do that before you delete the game.

That said, SD cards can be gotten quite cheaply. You could get a 64gb microsd for under $20 on Amazon right now.

Since that's over 32GB, you'd need to format it to FAT32 on your computer before using it in a 3DS, though. Or grab a 32GB for $10 I guess, but the 64GB is really the better deal.

u/atistang · 2 pointsr/truespotify

So I've tried an older smaller SD card I had laying around. So far it hasn't happened with this card. What card are you using? I figure since we both have the same issue we can share some ideas and maybe figure this thing out. The card I was using is this one. Also reading the reviews it seems lots of people complaining about the card randomly unmounting itself.

Memory card sale, if you need an upgrade.

Thinking of a Fire tablet for a viewscreen, anybody have experience?

u/CannibalAngel · 2 pointsr/raspberry_pi

Well, that depends. Are you willing to pay for the convenience of getting everything you need at once? Then sure it is. If not, then the price seems kinds high to me. $40 for this PI kit, $7 for this HDMI cable, $9 for this controller, and $15 for this 64GB SD card gets you in at $71 + shipping. $80 + shipping with a second controller.

u/codepoet82 · 2 pointsr/WiiUHacks

It must be on the SD card. The web browser (the only currently known primary entry point) doesn't have access to read from the USB ports at all, so there's no alternatives for it.

Personally, I'd recommend at least a 64GB card, this one from amazon is $20, and big enough to be able to run a rednand from.

u/Patius · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS7

Like /u/Draiko said, pretty much UHS-1 or above will be fine.

I use this one.

I've noticed no problems whatsoever. I put all my music, backups, and all the apps I can on there. I've had no issue running any of those apps. (Compared to the crappy SD card I got for free with my G4 last year, which froze on read only mode for no reason)

u/hdeck · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

They also have 64GB on sale for $17.99 if you are more strapped for cash

What’s the difference between this one and the one linked in the title? I know nothing of SD cards but this one is a lot more for the same number of gigs:

u/VA_Network_Nerd · 2 pointsr/college

> Okay, so putting Android OS on it will just make it more efficient/better at multitasking things?

Yes, sort of.

Getting the Amazon cluster of Apps out of the way, and letting pure Android OS take over is your fastest path to efficiency.

But, in fairness to the overlords @ Amazon, they don't generally suck at those kinds of projects.

With only 8GB of internal storage be sure and add a MicroSD card like one of these:

SanDisk Extreme Plus

Samsung EVO Plus

u/CapnNeko · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Yea just the normal evo lines, its should be an red/orange colour with a evo + symbol.

Something like this is more then enough. 80MB read speed plenty fast.

Idk if you are going completly digital but i would have to say sd cards are going to get cheaper with bigger storage.

Think switch can handle 1 tb or 2 tb sd card im not sure but def at least 1tb it said so.

If you are going full digital i would say but the cheap 64 or 128gb now and once prices come down buy the big 512 or 1tb cards

u/Abalamahalamatandra · 2 pointsr/tablets

Unless you crazily need performance, and that's highly doubtful for the use cases you mentioned, I'd recommend this card. I have one in two different Tab A's and play videos and read PDF files quite happily with it.

u/gullu2002 · 2 pointsr/madlads
u/jer2much · 2 pointsr/yi4kplus

Reporting in with my experience. Not sure why other people have issues with the samsung cards. So YMMV. I have this one:
And was able to run it on my Yi4K+ @ 4K 30fps using the bitrate mod to record @ 150mbps for around 45 minutes straight breaking it up with 4GB files. It has not failed me yet (knock on wood) and I've recorded at least 20 Volleyball games ranging between 2.7K30 @ 100MBs and 4K30 @150mbps with an average length of 45 minutes. I record using an external battery attached to keep the heat down. I've ordered those U3/A1 sandisks and they work fine (4K30 and 2.7K60) but max size 64GB. I am sometimes worried about the fakes floating around on Amazon for Sandisks. Last sandisk U3/A2 I ordered, the card and packaging had different A ratings. Card had A2 but packaging had A1. The card speed was slower than my older Sandisk cards using a benchmark app. I read somewhere that the Green Samsung sd cards are sold by Amazon only and that they are the same as the red version. So I tried it out and it worked for me. Maybe this will help with your decision.

u/Sketchy_Stew · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Samsung has good sd cards on Amazon. The other replier paid about 3x what a Samsung 128gb card will cost. I have two of these. One in my switch the other in my phone.

u/gtcom · 2 pointsr/linux

I'm using a 128GB Samsung Fit, which is pretty low profile. It doesn't stick out as far as a wireless mouse dongle.

The only reason i'm using it over an SD card is that it's 128GB, and the largest SD card I have is 16GB.

I could pick up a similarly sized SD card for about $50 (which is about half the cost of the machine I'd be putting it into, lol) if it would perform better. I wasn't sure that there would be much performance difference on this hardware and I already had the stick, so that's what I planned to go with.

u/Hothabanero6 · 2 pointsr/Surface

Here's a good Micro SD card option, 128GB $45. The 256GB is insane at the moment but that will change.

Hint, peek under the kickstand for that micro sd card slot. 🙂

u/trazire · 2 pointsr/IWantToLearn

If your computer has a tiny slot, then you can put a microSD card in there. You can get a card like this for around $20 at Best Buy and other tech stores. You can move your files into the microSD as opposed to on your main drive, saving space.

If your computer has a larger slot about the size of your thumb, you can get an SD card. Some microSD cards have SD card adapters, which you can tell by the packaging. If you use Amazon, this $20 128 gigabyte card from Samsung and this $10 64 gigabyte card from Silicon Power would both do the trick. If none such a port exists, I recommend this $18 128 gigabyte flash drive from SanDisk.

Also, if you could tell me the model number (usually located on the back of the computer labeled under "model", or in Control Panel along with RAM), then I'd be able to help you more.

u/Sevyn13 · 2 pointsr/SwitchPirates

Also I thought you needed bigger that 32gb to back up the NAND? Doesn’t it recommend 64gb when backing up? I could be wrong.

CFW is not that big, so it should fit on it I believe. You’ll have to install via USB with Goldleaf.

But really man, just get $10 - $20 dollars and buy a decent size card. A quick search produced these results.

u/tovivify · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Target, Walmart, Amazon, wherever sells them. Hell, this one is Samsung, and $20.

u/OreoCupcakes · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch
You don't have to go SanDisk. Samsung has better micro SD cards for pretty much the same prices.

u/snugglezone · 2 pointsr/chromeos

I can't remember where I read it, but there is no USB2 bus (since there are no usb2 ports) so the sd card won't be limited by usb2 speeds.

I bought which should be fast enough to run a linux distro directly. Haven't gotten around to setting it up personally. There isn't great support for the CBPro among the common distros yet.

Pencil = worth.
Glass = not worth. Took me 3 applications to get one I thought was worthwhile. The screen is just so gd big. easy to get a bubble. Still no idea where the bubbles came from on my 3rd application. Looks like a tiny splotch of oil under the screen, but ill be damned if i didn't clean the heck out of it. Can't imagine it's diong anything to protect my screen and it collects a bunch of oil. Also, expensive. Definitely buy a 2 pack.


also, the 11 inch case might be a bit small. I have an evecase that is 12 inchs or a bit more and it fits perfectly.

2nd edit:

Can you install crouton on the SD card? I thought it had to go to main memory. I could be wrong though. Been a minute since I went the crouton route. Setting up a dual boot isn't very complicated.

u/DMPSTRFR · 2 pointsr/RetroPie

$45 MicroSD card, sold by Samsung through Amazon. The odds of this card being "fake" are slim enough that I'd wager real money. Sandisk sells the same thing for the same price.

u/ProjectXero · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Absolutely! That card TemptedTemplar recommended is the same one I have and I would also recommend it. I personally decided to go all digital with the switch and it's been nice, but I can't sell back games I don't want anymore so that sucks.

u/D34DL1N3R · 2 pointsr/PlaystationClassic

I use a cable exactly like that one and am having (mostly) zero issues so I don't think it's the cable itself. I am a firm believer that even via OTG any given flash stick or (micro) SD card is still hit or miss. I have four different microSD cards and several different adapters & I said "(mostly)" because my 4, 16, and 128 GB cards all work with every adapter.... but my 200GB card does not work with ANY of the adapters, at all. It just boots to stock despite the fact there's nothing wrong with that specific card.


All in all, I'd chalk the slowdown to either 1.) not enough power from whatever power source you are using, 2). a bad/corrupted/incompatible microSD card, 3.) a bad microSD reader/adapter, 4.) corrupt game files, or 5.) any combination of 1-4. I very much doubt it's the cable, but as I said... I think regardless of OTG the entire thing is STILL very finicky and picky. OTG does not equate guaranteed compatibility & I think too many people are under the assumption that it does - then are surprised when their stick or card doesn't work.

Here is the setup I have:

u/ohiotech · 2 pointsr/raspberry_pi

I have an idea for a retro pie project for a Head2Head gaming rig for my kids. I'd like some input to help ease the pain of my shopping for parts, or for the mod itself. It came about because of their love to play the Star Wars Battleship game.

I have, or have already purchased:

  • Double Sided Case
  • Raspberry Pi 3b
  • 3.5mm splitter (4 way)
  • 3.5mm speaker
  • 2x SNES type controllers *USB)

    Still need to get/consider:

  • 128GB for Retro Pie image/roms Looking at this card
  • 2x 10.1 displays Looking at this display
  • Have yet to decide on Arcade joystick/buttons and controller for the use with the Pi. I'm open to suggestions.
  • Want to be able to use the arcade controls for the MAME games, but USB SNES controllers for anything else. The looms need to be able to do head2head and not just side to side. I'm not adverse to making them myself.
  • HDMI splitter will allow display image to be mirrored on both screens
  • Want P1 toggle for power to the system and only one side of the case. Want P2 toggle to provide power to the second display. I would love it to provide power to the entire second side of the case, but will accept only the display. P2 side will have no power toggles.
  • I expect that I'll need a slim/travel power strip installed in the case to provide power to the displays to hide their power supplies.
  • Segment space inside the center part of the case to support "tucking in" the main power supply cord so it doesn't get dragged when carrying the case around.
  • Smoked plexiglass to cover the display sides of the case.
  • Materials and hardware to make a small platform to mount the arcade controls on each side, and create a small removable lid with access to storage space next to the buttons.

    This is obviously not an overnight project, nor everything needed. I'll be documenting as much of it along the way; up until completion. I want to make a video of the progress for my kids to go back and watch when all is said and done, but am also going to make a "movie trailer" version of the video for them to highlight the project's documentation.

    Thank in advance, and please let me know if I need to delete this post from here and place it somewhere else that would provide any gainful advice.

    Thanks y'all.

u/CryptoNoob-17 · 2 pointsr/drones

> 1. Do you find that the video it shoots is mostly acceptable without adjusting things like color, temperature, contrast, sharpness, and white balance? If not, how and why?

For most people it should be fine. There are 3 picture settings you can adjust in the camera, Contrast, Sharpness & Saturation. If you are not going to color correct the video afterwards you should adjust these settings until you think the video looks good. The reason I adjust my picture settings to [-1] for all 3 of them, is to get the video flat with low contrast so that I can adjust them more accurately inside my video edit program. If you adjust the color settings while out in the sun with glare on your phone screen, it can be difficult to get the contrast and stuff right. If you have it too high, you lose pixel detail in your shadows (they turn black). By having the contrast low, you have more leeway before the colors "go off the scale" and gets clipped off either towards black in the shadows or towards white in the clouds if you are shooting in the sun's direction. It's similar to the reason I, and any amateur to pro photographers take pictures in RAW format, then edit in Lightroom.

> 2. Does it avoid obstacles when auto-returning to base? In other words, if I am on the other side of some trees and almost out of battery, will it bee-line back to base and hit the trees or go over them?

It has a setting you can have on or off to avoid obstacles during "return to home". You can also adjust the altitude it goes up to before starting to return home. Mine is set at 30m (90ft) and haven't had any problems with trees.

> 3. Is there a recovery feature in case it goes down when it is far from me? GPS/map? A beep for finding it via sound?

Yes I've had to use that feature a couple of times. In the DJIgo4 app there's a feature "Find my drone". It opens up a map, you turn on your phone's GPS and can see the last known position of your drone on the map. You also see yourself as an arrow and just keep walking in the direction of the line that connects you to your drone until you find it. It's accurate to a couple of feet, In that same "find my drone" window there's a button you can press to activate the flashing lights and beeping sound. It also gives you the GPS coordinates of your drone. The DJIgo4 app didn't work for me when I don't have cell signal, so I had to search for the coordinates on Google Maps where I have downloaded offline maps. You can also download offline maps for the DJIgo4 app.

> 4. What resolution is the final footage of that "asteroid" spherical pano animation feature?

I've only used it once. It's a 1920x1080 MP4. 1080p Full HD.

> 5. Is there a video format option that is less compressed than MP4, or is that the only option?

There's 2 formats to choose from. MP4 and MOV. Choice of 2 codecs (H.264/MPEG-4 AVC) Not sure if you can use both codecs with both file types, it might be MP4=H264 and MOV=MPEG-4
There's no noticeable difference in compression.
This comment in the DJI Forum sums it up nicely.

>"Think of MOV/MP4 as just a container for your video content. The containers are almost identical, they use the same lossy compression standards so the video content will be the same. However, the MOV container was designed for use in an Apple environment. For example, on a Apple Mac you can easily convert a MOV file to MP4 without having to change the video encoding. If you try and do this in Windows it can be complex. MP4 is more universal in that its supported by many operating systems and media players.
In real world terms, it depends on what platform you are editing your content. If its an Apple ecosystem go with MOV. Anything else use MP4."


> 6. One of the tutorials explains the "Cinelike D" mode as making it possible to enable future color grading more easily. Was that explained inaccurately or not? If not, what is the reason color grading is more easily attained using that mode?

Cinelike D is what I use because I color grade. In video editing there are things called 'scopes'. They are like the histogram found in cameras and photoshop software. It's a more technical way of looking at the colors in a video. It has a scale from 0 to 1024. If your contrast and saturation settings in the drone is set too high, some parts of the video will have too bright or too dark colors that fall outside 0-1024. A color with a "brightness value" of 1030, gets clipped at 1024. So any detail that was in there gets lost and you have bright white colored clouds. What Cinelike D does, and most of the other "flat" profiles like D-LOG, is that the colors get compressed towards the middle of this 0-1024 scale. Let's say your maximum brightness on the scale is around 800, if you move your drone towards the sun, the video will get brighter around some clouds and around the sun. If your brightness was already maxed out near 1024, then after getting the sun in your shot it is definitely going to overexpose the clouds. But because you had Cinelike D on, you have some room to work with. When you make it darker in editing you will bring out all the detail, If they were overexposed, you would just make a big area of white darker, into flat gray looking clouds.

> 7. How many times can you use a battery before you start to see a significant degradation of capacity?

I don't know. My batteries show they have been charged 34 times since March 2018, and I haven't seen any less flight time.

> 8. I'm reading that I need a "Class 10" micro SD card. Is that true? (I plan to shoot 4K/30 or 1080/60)

Yes. I have a Samsung 128GB 100MB/s (U3) MicroSD EVO Select Memory Card with Adapter (MB-ME128GA/AM)
^(Up to 100MB/s & 90MB/s read & write speeds respectively; Class 10 UHS 3)
^(High-performance for 4K UHD video recording, high resolution pictures, mobile gaming and music, for use in Smartphones, Drones, Android Tablets, Tablet PCs, Action Cameras, DSLRs)

> 9. Should I get a 128GB or larger? Or should I get multiple 64GB cards?

I've never filled up my card. I just like having the extra space if/when I use my drone on travels and I'm not close to a computer. I would get a 128GB rather than 2 x 64GB. Just because the hassle of flying your drone back to you to change the SD card, when you had the drone in position to get a nice shot but only have 50MB of space left.

> 10. Is the refurbished model on the DJI website worth it? Can you think of any reasons not to get that one?

lol. I'm the wrong person to ask about buying refurbished products. I don't do it anymore. I've had too much bad luck buying refurbished. For me the little discount you get isn't worth it. Some of the refurbished stuff I bought didn't last long before the problem that caused it to need repairs came back.

> 11. Is there anything you wish was different or that you think could be improved? Any deal-killers that might shift me towards a different model or maker?

Nothing that I can think of that's bad. It's a great drone. The compact size is a good selling point for me.

The claim that the switch only supports UHS-1 cards does not mean it wont work. You need at least a minimum of a U1 and U3 cards such as the Samsung WILL work. The U basically is just speed and won't matter on the Switch.

So the for people that prefer Samsung storage they can also get the same size 128gb for $19.99 from Samsung as well.

u/BootlegStreetlight · 2 pointsr/wyzecam
u/PhantomReaver · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch is cheap for now, part of their black friday deal from my understanding. 128GB may be smallish if you plan to game a lot on it; may want to wait on a 256GB sale for around $40 but who know when that'll be.

u/dchoo · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I personally use the Samsung EVO 128GB (bought off Amazon at that link) and don't have any complaints. If you download a lot / all of your games, then you may potentially want to consider bumping up a size (I'm not close to filling the 128GB after a year of having it).

u/brooklandia1 · 2 pointsr/GearVR

Thanks. For anyone interested, this seems to have best speeds for usb flash (obviously external SSD is fastest if they work too): SanDisk Extreme PRO CZ88 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Speeds Up To 260MB/s

Or even faster updated usb 3.1 version i just saw

The smaller flash drives seem to be just microSD card housings and so top out well under 100 MB/s write speed, a bit slow for copying 1440p/4K 60fps content.

Also went with a 128GB Samsung Evo Select SD card, much better write speeds than the Samsung Evo+ in the $99 immersive preorder promo.

u/sarduchi · 2 pointsr/Gamecube

You're basic "on sale at Amazon" Samsung EVO.

u/Lithargoel · 2 pointsr/3dspiracy

Hell, official-factory refurbished "new" 3DS and 2DS XLs are on sale at Nintendo's online store. I just purchased a 2DS XL for $99 from them. It shipped from WA state. Got it in 4 business days for the $5 shipping, and it was safely and well packed.

Figure $110 after tax for a new 2DS XL shipped, or about $20 more for a refurbed 3DS.

The $20 128 GB SDXC memory card you were talking about also has a reader bundled with it for ~$8 more, if one needed it.

If one doesn't want to purchase a flashcart for ~$25 shipped (reputable retailer for official flashcarts), and doesn't have easy access to one to borrow, that person is gonna have to use (most likely for firmware ranges on units refurbished by Nintendo) Seedminer.

Overall looking at ~$130-$160ish to grab just the refurbed console (depending on 2DS/3DS) and memory card, and take the time to use Seedminer. Unless that person wanted to hardmod it for boot9strap.

I believe that purchasing a flashcart is a worthy investment to nearly guarantee the easiest and smoothest method to mod a console. The benefits the flashcart has beyond that is also well-worth the ~$25 for a quality flashcart from a reputable vendor.

My console shipped with 11.6.0, so I didn't turn on internet til I ntrboot'd it with an R4i Gold Plus 3DS/DS RTS flashcart (internal switch, quickest way to install CFW). I lucked out to have the flashcart because last year I had purchased it for a DS Lite I was given.

I'd previously CFW'd an OG 3DS still on firmware 4.4.0 with the soundhax method for boot9strap, which was easy enough. The flashcart ntrboot method was a bit easier, and much faster.

u/yadda4sure · 2 pointsr/chromeos

Yup and the aukey dock in the picture is great.



I also added this 128GB MicroSD Card

And for me that is the perfect set up.

u/Astrophsx · 2 pointsr/sonyactioncam

I use this one and it works fine for me. Might want to see if there is a difference between pro and evo are.

u/NotSoMeanJo · 2 pointsr/lgg7

I just did a benchmark with the A1 SD Bench app. Read: 77.79 MB/s Write: 28.09 MB/s cant remember what card I have in it but I've had this card for at least 2 years (transferred over from my G6)

Edit: according to my amazon history, the SD card is " Samsung 128GB 100MB/s (U3) MicroSD EVO Select Memory Card with Adapter (MB-ME128GA/AM) "

u/fons383 · 2 pointsr/dreamcast

Using this at the moment, works great.

u/cooliest · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I think this Samsung one might be a bit faster for a few extra bucks.

u/Citizen_V · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS9

I think it is, but I haven't been tracking the prices after I bought mine. DroidFind is probably basing their claim on CamelCamelCamel or another price tracker. It is in fact the lowest it's been on Amazon as a regular price; these trackers aren't able to track lightning deals.

EDIT: This deal is a ton of attention on SlickDeals.

u/DhavyBear · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

Is this one on par with this one? Or is there a significant difference between the two?

u/476565 · 2 pointsr/homeassistant

Totally agree, but booting from USB gives me many more options. I could use an external SSD etc.

Currently using a Samsung 64 Gig. Hopefully this will last awhile. Needed to go 64 Gig just to get U3, anything smaller and it would have been a U1.

$15, can't beat that

u/jcmcnamee · 2 pointsr/wyzecam

I have the 64gb version of this in 4 cams since the v2 came out and have had no issues:

u/xfactoraeg · 2 pointsr/Dashcam

My only failure was a Sandisk. I have Samsung Evos in all mine now.

Samsung 64GB 100MB/s (U3) MicroSDXC EVO Select Memory Card with Adapter (MB-ME64GA/AM)

u/xloc · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

AmFilm and this SD card. I got the 64, the 128 is $12 more.

u/PartyClass · 2 pointsr/PSP

Yep, and grab some cheap memory


Sony Memory Card Shell

64 Gb Micro SD


That said, you can find all sorts of teardown guides

You can also buy the UMD drives for pretty cheap

I have no experience with replacing the UMD drives however and don't know if there could be compatibility issues.

u/armorall · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

This one might be a better option at $11.99. Also has 15% back for Prime cards. I just bought one last week for a Wyze cam.

The 128GB of the Samsung one is $19.49
