SanDisk microSD cards: who is it worth buying for?
For everyone who needs more storage space on their cell phone, tablet or Nintendo Switch. For most cameras and circuit board computers like the Raspberry Pi, a memory card is mandatory anyway. 128 GB currently also offers a very good price-performance ratio. If you want more, you have to dig much deeper into your pocket. Nowadays, less is probably not enough for most, here the rule is: better to have than to need.
In addition to size, speed is the most important criterion for a microSD card. Here the SanDisk Extreme is more than sufficient for most applications. 4K videos are transmitted quickly, and performance class A2 also ensures excellent app performance. Because the Nintendo Switch can only transfer around 100 MB / s anyway, a higher speed is not necessary for this. Digital cameras and smartphones in particular benefit from more speed.
Since SanDisk is a well-known manufacturer, you can fall back on a manufacturer’s guarantee of up to 10 years in the event of a defect.
