I'd avoid the Ultra cards, not very durable or reliable:[Video]


For dash cams you should use specialised cards which are rated for high endurance levels.
It's the same with SSDs in that you should typically buy a drive with a higher endurance rating if you use it in a workstation or server.
This is general advice and doesn't relate to Sandisk in particular.
For phone usage you can use any type of card unless you are thrashing it with long 4k video captures.

it depends on how much you intend on writing to them yeah, but I'd still prefer a more durable card.

Lawdy! I remember when it was this much for just 512MB!

Sure, but no point in paying significantly more unless you really need it.
Can you even buy high endurance 200GB cards?

Got a 200GB one in my Switch and it's been working as intended?

SanDisk must be pretty confident in it seeing as it's got a 10 year warranty, so if it breaks you'll get a replacement

Ultra are good for mobiles or any purpose where you are not writing to card at a high bit rate.
Although it states 100MB/s that is only for read. Write will be much lower, 10MB+ guaranteed minimum and normally around 18-20.

When recording 4k, dash cams, drones etc you want a U3 card like the extreme or extreme plus, 60 and 90 MB/s write speeds respectively.

I think for dash cam you can use ssd or m2

They increase the density tenfold in 10 years but the write speeds stay virtually the same

Hopefully not once u3 interface support comes along from Qualcomm etc.

don't expect high write speeds of a microcard in a USB reader, they perform as designed in an item of recording equipment with a dedicated memory controller or they simply would not be able to record the data output by those devices.
You can't have your cake and eat it too, smaller, faster and cheaper is not possible.

If you are a professional driver using a dashcam 8 hours a day you really want a high endurance card as well as one rated for 30MBs.
A 30Mbs capture rate at 8 hours per day is roughly 128GB per day.
Even high end consumer SSDs are rated for 1 whole drive write per day at best typically and they expect to be written to more than cards.
So with a 128GB card you are filling it every day which I wouldn't want to do with a regular card.
High endurance drives can be rated for up to 30 full drive writes per day so you are better off with a smaller capacity with a much higher rating.
In other words don't buy a 256GB U3 card but a high endurance 64GB one.
I don't know exactly how high the endurance ratings are for these cards though but at least they should have a rating which is a start.
High endurance doesn't come cheap especially for the high end server SSDs.

As far as SD cards are concerned I'm not convinced that endurance cards are worth the premium over standard cards.
Personally I think it's mostly marketing hype.


Just my opinion though.

Based on anything in particular?

If you look at NAND it is more expensive to manufacture devices with higher endurance.
NAND is tested and binned based on its properties as are CPUs and RAM.
So there is less of it that meets certain criteria which is one reason why the costs are higher.
Plus they will use a higher over-provisioning ratio which means there is more spare NAND on the device which pushes up prices of course.
So there are solid technical reasons why high endurance devices behave how they do and why they cost more.
Manufacturers will back that up with the warranty they provide also.
I think the Lexar cards are rated for something like up to 8 hours per day for 3 years at ~28Mbs.

I use an Ultra card in my Samsung Note 4 often recording 4K video. Never had a problem.

Bought, thank you.

don't think i need one right now, but at this price its hard to say no, after all running a few pi3's android phones tablets etc its bound to come in handy, thanks. I was wondering everyone saying you need a class u3 for recording, would this also affect phone recording videos? i have an s8 and the low light video recording is awful and nothing makes it any better, i'm assuming its the phone (not what you'd expect for something so pricey) but could it also me the fact that i have a class 10 u1 in it

Amazing price for a 200GB branded and reliable card.
I would happily buy x2 128GB cards for my needs. Would be gutted if i lost a 200GB card

Note 4 encoder has quite a low 4k bit rate. 48Mb/s (8MB/s) so comfortably works with u1 standard.

U1 cards are only guaranteed to 10MB/s so anything higher can be problematic if the cards write speed dips below the encoders bit rate.

Just see it on Amazon falsh sale, seem to be good. Anyone has this experience? thanks

64GB is enough for me

Will this work on the note 8???

Hot Amazon sent out a second batch of those £10 off £50 spend just got mine for £40.99 will do me for my switch
