SanDisk Ultra 64GB microSDXC Memory Card + SD Adapter with A1 App Performance up to 100MB/s, Class 10, U1

Was looking for a micro SD card for my newly purchased dash cam (NOTE - This one is not suitable - read the comments!), and this seems pretty cheap compared to other prices around at the moment so hope it may help some people.

Note seller is Amazon US so not Prime UK eligible (as far as I can tell). £13.70 + £2.99 delivery so delivery is 7-11 Business Days.

Alas these are not suitable for Dashcams or any loop recording devices, Sandisk will not warrant them either If you need a 64gb you would need to spend over £30 for a SanDisk SDSDQQ-064G-G46A High Endurance Video Monitoring microSD Card - 64 GB, these are warranted for Dashcams.

But I thought any class 10 card would work for 720p or higher in dash cam... Why this is not suitable for dashcam? Am I missing something?

What is meant is that they are not meant for that sort of usage. Constantly writing, erasing and rewriting data is very intensive for SD cards and some can't handle the number of cycles. Like with CCTV systems and standard hard drives, you need something that can handle the constant usage. If you use any card, it'll work for a while, but you might start getting errors, corruption or just complete breakdowns, which if you need the footage for a crash or investigation you don't want that sort of unrelaibility

Incredibly, Nextbase/Halfords are selling a Nextbase Go Pack Pro with the Sandisk Ultra Card in which is very poor from them taking into account the above info imo.

I recently bought a dashcam. So did a bit of research for the sd card.
SanDisk ultra was the top of list to avoid for dash cams and also to go for 32GB.

Over £15 so could end up paying customer and admim fee on top

  • Sold and shipped from abroad. All import customs duties and taxes included at the time of purchase

Good price OP but personally I've have too many fake SD cards from Amacon to chance it!

Having never knowingly had a card fail on me and only once stupidly purchased a very cheap fake card, I was unaware of "constant use" and/or potential "over time" failure issues.
So thank you very much for this.
I need to spend some time backing up my various cards and reviewing their quality, use and age.

This is from Amazon global store, so please note:-
  • Manufacturer warranty will not apply"

But it's sold by Amazon us and fulfilled by them, surely you have DSR if they refuse warranty. I've never thought you'd have to check a memory card from Amazon what's that hs2w program that checks it called

Lol, they say that, but as they bill products purchased here to Ireland they put the VAT into their back pocket and don't really pay tax. That half a percent of tax is not tax at all, its a sop to pretend they are paying tax.

Only 5p more, but postage is £3.04 for me. Has the exchange rate changed?

Good on them, wish i knew how to not pay tax too.
I've noticed the government is also very good at putting money into their back pocket - and when asked they pretend they have none.

Yes,
Remember, writing and then reading 64GB takes hours even at USB3 speeds.
Have a look here for example download.
Virus check download.
If zipped , virus check folder again after unzip.

What is the minimum writing speed for SD cards to be sure they will work on GoPro cameras (in my case Hero 4, 1920x1080 videos)?

Thanks for all that, I have it on my computer. Obviously it's best to do it before you use it or you have to wipe it then put the stuff back on.
Just tried it on my 256gb sdxc card and immediately saw it taking hours. Stopped it will try it overnight. Thanks for the help on this bud. :-)

Paragraph 2 ( ) in "Getting Started" in Hero4 Silver User Manual ....
"2. Remove the camera side door and insert a microSD card (sold
separately). The card must have a minimum rating of Class 10 or
UHS-I, and a capacity up to 64GB. Visit gopro.com/sup…ort for
the list of GoPro-tested microSD cards."

But if I'd splashed out on a GOPro, I'd use U3.

The thing is that I used Ultra cards and I was keep getting error messages all the time. Even when I make timelapse photos (which is not really write speed consuming). When I contacted their support they told me that SanDisk Ultra is not fast enough so I bought SanDisk Extreme and since then the camera works fine.

Would this be good enough quality/speed card for Moto g5 or do I need to purchase the extreme/ extreme plus version . Really confusing
