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] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DOB6YW4/) 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: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00U77V5KU

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

EDIT - FASTER ONE AT AMAZON - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01DOB6YW4/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (80mbps read instead of 48)

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.

u/JackSparrowUSA · 8 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I ordered this one because it's the sweet spot for size/price/speed at the moment.

u/ThumbtackGlove · 7 pointsr/Games

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.

That's standard for a mid tier 128gb card.

u/Houdiniman111 · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

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.

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/Shock4ndAwe · 5 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Here's the link for them on Amazon.

u/CapitalQ · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

If SDXC and Class 10 (or better, UHS-1 Speed Class 1) are your only criteria, there's no need to spend more than $39.99 for 128GB: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DOB6YW4

It's worth noting that this is the brand Nintendo was shown using during the Treehouse event.

(Also, by definition, any microSD card over 32GB in size has to be SDXC.)

u/fryfrog · 2 pointsr/3dshacks

I've used these 128G Samsung [Evo Select] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01DOB6YW4/), [Evo] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00P3NMVVU/) and [Evo+] (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00XJKL1ME/). The only catch is that Windows 10 (and probably 8.1?) won't format anything over 32G as FAT32, so you'll need a 3rd party utility to do that.

u/EpicDerp37272 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

this one's good.

You're gonna want to get one if you're going all digital. If you want to dish out the extra cash, you can instead get a 256 GB card if you think you'll need it.

u/Alpacauno · 2 pointsr/Dashcam

I'm using a 128gb, link. So far so good.

u/isableandaking · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales

Here is a ~2x faster READ, but 1/2 as fast WRITE 128gb from Samsung on amazon for $30 48MB/s is plenty fast for DSLRs and stuff, pretty sure it handles 4k video well as well, but if you want to be sure it's just $5 more. So with that in mind, the older version might be actually better, disregard this.

u/kivalo · 2 pointsr/buildapcsales


80MB/s but I'm pretty sure it'll be sold out (lightning deal) before anyone sees it..

u/trexflyer02 · 2 pointsr/Surface

This! 128gb Samsung U1 for $25.

u/TemptedTemplar · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Micro SD is a format, and Nintendo branded ones will be greatly over priced for their size and speed.

Id suggest this one.

There are no other essentials for the switch out of the box aside from a memory card if you want digital titles.

If you plan on traveling with it a lot, I would suggest a case and a portable USB charger and maybe a screen protector. But they are not necessary for normal use.

u/metanoia29 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Write speed is not as important in this case; the only time write speeds matter that much are with photography. It's been said that write speeds on the 3DS top out at about 1-2 MB/s, so there's no point in speculating about how fast you'll be able to write on the Switch, which will really only be used for initially installing a game.

The more important speed to look at is read speed. Something like this U1 Samsung card is promoted with max 80 MB/s read speeds, so the bump here on this U3 card up to 95 MB/s should be negligible on the Switch.

u/6342626 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Hello, I just have a question on which sd card I should get.

between the Samsung Pro Select 64 gb https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Select-MicroSDXC-MB-MF64DA-AM/dp/B01DOB6Y6A

or the Samsung Evo Select 128 gb

I'm planning on going physical copies aside from mario kart.

Is the difference big enough to justify a 64 gb difference?

Thank you in advance!

u/Owlikat · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I'm not sure where the place is to ask, but is this card what we would ideally pick up for the Switch?

u/authentic010 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

Get a Samsung Evo 128gb you can get them for 35-40 and they are proven fast and reliable. Physical will load faster, digital you can carry more. I'm going physical for the big games, digital or any VC

u/LiquidEvilGaming · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

SanDisk is the Walmart of SDCards, would truly recommend spending the extra $7 for the Samsung EVO 128GB


My two cents anyways.

u/Zachmosphere · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Just an FYI this is the one I grabbed. Definitely go bigger if you plan to go all digital, but if you'll be mixed this should be fine to start out.


u/Danv97 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

does someone knows if that SD card is fine'

im probably grabbing that one also.

u/Captain_Marvelous · 1 pointr/smashbros

I've been using this one since April 2017 and haven't had any corruption issues.

u/The_sleyer · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Personally I've been looking at this, seems like a good price.

u/goodnessgravy · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

I feel like my Battle Chasers load times are often really long.

Is this a poorly optimized game or is it possibly my micro SD card holding me back? I realize the SSD in my desktop has spoiled me some but damn! Breath of the Wild doesn't even take this long to load for crying out loud or any other Switch game for that matter.

This is my card

u/Namlad · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Why is this card significantly cheaper than this card.

u/TechFiend101 · 1 pointr/AndroidQuestions

The 128GB cards seem to be the best bang/buck right now:
$29.99 Sandisk Ultra 128GB or Samsung Evo Select 128GB

u/bartman36 · 1 pointr/hardwareswap

I'm not sure if this is allowed, but Amazon was having a sale on some Micro SD cards.

u/treehumper83 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Save yourself some money. I like Samsung SD cards. There's some other ones cheaper, but my Samsung SD's have been super reliable.

u/TingleMaps · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

This is what I bought:

Good enough?

u/WhiteAsCanBe · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

OK guys, I'm finally going to get a MicroSD card ordered from Amazon tonight but I need your help deciding between these two cards:

Samsung EVO Select $39.99 128gb 80MB/s (Amazon says usually ships in 1-2 months???)

Sandisk Ultra $41.40 128gb 80MB/s (Amazon says in stock)

Note: I have prime 2 day shipping but I'm not sure if the "usually ships in 1 to 2 months" should be worrisome. Is there anything I should consider before buying one of these cards?

u/MasterInterface · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Since it sounds like you have a tight budget, this is my recommendation:

  1. Yes to case if you are bringing that out often. Otherwise, skip the case.

  2. I recommend this MicroSD card since it's a good price for a decent card. I don't really recommend cheaping out on MicroSD card with read speed below 80mb since it could impact game performance: https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Select-Memory-MB-ME128DA-AM/dp/B01DOB6YW4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1488044138&sr=8-1&keywords=samsung+select

  3. Battery pack - Skip for now. Until there are more information on what battery will work safely on the Switch, you may end up with something that can end up being incompatible. My prefer brand is Anker. Again, if you don't plan on bringing the Switch out often, skip it.

  4. Don't get the Pro controller, not yet. It doesn't look like you will be building up a collection of intensive games.

  5. Skip digital only games. Wait for sales on eShop card. Best Buy or Ebay have sales on digital currency once in a while.

  6. Mario Kart 8 is a good game. If you're looking for a meatier game, Splatoon 2? (But keep in mind that starting Fall, online play will require subscription). I also recommend Puyo Puyo Tetris.

    If you're playing to spend at least $120 in games in the next two years, I recommend getting a GCU membership at Best Buy. The 20% saving will cover the $30 membership fee after 3 games at $60, plus ~$2-3 in saving.

    The discounts also stack on sales and other discounts (except BF deals). GCU also works on Amiibos.

    And if you wait for the Visa Checkout promo (about once every month or two), you can easily achieve 40% off on new games, day 1.
u/MrPerson0 · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

This card is exclusive to Amazon, and it says it usually ships in one to two months.

u/Coffee-Anon · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Yes. That is the exact card I bought for my Switch, from Walmart too. But here's the catch: I didn't realize until after I ordered it that Walmart goes through a 3rd party seller to get you that price, and the one I happened to get it from had a no returns/refunds policy. Luckily it looks like the card I got is fine, but frankly counterfeit cards are common enough that they could even slip by a big retailer like Walmart going through a 3rd party.

SO: if you want that card I would actually recommend you get the 128gb EVO Select from Amazon, it's the exact same card ("Select" is just what Amazon calls an EVO+), it should be the same price (maybe a little cheaper) and you're buying it directly from Amazon and should be able to return it if you have any problems.


u/pasta4u · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

this is an older card that offers only 45MB/s reads. if you go far back in amazon reviews you can see people testing them and having slow speeds at 45MB/s and some reviews state that the write speeds were bad often dropping like a rock.

You really want to invest in a good card . I own this one


if you scroll down to customer images you can see someone was nice enough to benchmark it . He was getting 92.5MB/s sequential reads and 25.26 writes. That and the 512k scores 84/45 respectively are the most important.

I recommend you don't buy anything because we don't know what the switch can take advantage of. So here is an expensive card that I use in my surface pro 4

This is double the price of the first card I linked for the same capcity. Its sped ? 150MBs/ 55/ MB a second. The problem is the need for a UHSII card slot.

So like I said don't go out and buy until you know. I know for me I rather have faster loads than more storage. I will always have a case with me so I can always keep multiple micro sd cards

Writes should not be that important since games will only really write to save and when downloading games you may be limited by your connection anyway.

u/glowinghamster45 · 1 pointr/Surface

The Samsung Evo Select's are on a stupid great sale right this moment. Basically, you just want to keep an eye on the read/write speed of whatever card you get, and get a reputable brand.

If you order from any online retailer, be wary of fakes. Sandisk and Samsung sd cards are forged like crazy. Even on Amazon. Make sure it's shipped and sold by Amazon if you get it there, and even then inspect it when you get it.

u/Yuokes · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Here's a samsung one for $40.


So $40 for 128gb. Even if you downloaded let's say BOTW, Mario, splatoon, and even XB2 all this year digital, you would still have over half of that space left.

u/halcyoncmdr · 1 pointr/nintendo

Is it slower than a built-in NAND module? Yes, but in the case of a game like this is intended for you'll probably never notice the difference. I don't think that's what you were actually referring to though anyway. I'm betting you were referencing the old slow MicroSD Class 1 cards everyone bought because they were cheap at the time.

Every current MicroSD XC card I can find on Amazon is at least a Class 10/UHS-1 card, which means minimum 10MB/s speeds. Like this $40 128GB Samsung card here. We're not talking about the old standard MicroSD Class 1 cards anymore, modern external card speeds are more than enough for what this use case would likely require.

u/waffledork · 1 pointr/NintendoSwitch

Zelda alone will take up about half the available space on your system if you get a digital copy. To avoid this, make sure you get a heafty SDXC card (the 128GB Samsung Evo Select and the 128GB SanDisk Ultra are good choices). With one of those, everything but the save data will be written to the card, saving you from worrying about running out of room.

u/SpiralViper · 1 pointr/nintendo

I recommend the Samsung EVO 128GB.


It has an excellent read speed, and happens to be the card that Nintendo Treehouse used in their Switch during the unboxing video.
