    • Expired?

      Whats the rep of joybuy?

      • Expired but was just last week. Maybe hold out until the Black Friday sales at least.

        Rep is pretty good. Company behind them is JD.com.

        Not as bad as Dressli or Rosegal.

  • Have had the red 128gb select on a deal a while back.

    TEmpted to upgrade to 256gb finally, but just curious: Is there an easy way one can "mirror" clone their 128gb contents onto the 258gb? I presume a straight copy paste from windows explorer won't bring across hidden app files or settings etc. that need to be properly saved on ? or will it?

    Happy to switch to larger storage size but the transferring of existing data is what worries me. Suggestions?

    • You can perfectly mirror-copy using Clonezilla.
      Though, you might need some above-basic tech literacy to do that.

  • Are they good for dashcams?

      I've got a 64gb samsung microsd that's been going fine. It is still risk if something happens to the card. You have to weigh up losing the whole card or having less storage.

    • Get the high endurance variation from Sandisk or Samsung. More expensive but worth it IMO.

  • Is the 64 version good for a GoPro 2018?

    • +1

      Don't own a GoPro myself. But I use the 128gb card in my Sony FDR-X3000 action cam to record in 4K @ 100Mbps bitrate. Never had any issues with the recordings. Card works perfectly and comfortably handles 4k/the high bitrate.

      works fine on the Hero7 black.

    • Interested to know as well.

  • Picture of SD card on Amazon page has "U3" symbol. Text on Amazon page has UHS-1.

    So which is this: UHS-1 or UHS-3?

    • UHS-I Speed Grade 3 (U3)

      More info on determining the class:
      https://www.sdcard.org/developers/overview/speed_class/

      • UHS-I Speed Grade 3 (U3)

        Sorry, I'm still confused. According to the page, it says:

        The UHS Speed Classes defined by the SD Association are UHS Speed Class 1 (U1) and UHS Speed Class 3 (U3).

        So how can it be UHS-I and U3?

        • +1

          **The UHS Speed Classes defined by the SD Association are UHS Speed Class 1 (U1) and UHS Speed Class 3 (U3). U1 and U3 can be applied to UHS Bus IF product family (UHS-I, UHS-II & UHS-III)."

          The second sentence is the one you want. UHS-1, this is the UHS bus interface. More info on the bus interface: https://www.sdcard.org/developers/overview/bus_speed/

          U3 refers to the UHS speed class 3. Below this UHS speed class 1 (U1).

          Below that there is speed class (read, NON UHS) class 10, class 8, class 6, class 4 and class 2.

          The class number, usually the little numbered symbols you see printed on the cards (like the U3 in the product packaging photo on Amazon), indicates the minimum writing speed.

          On the back of the 128gb evo select card packaging that I have here, it states:
          "Transfer speed is based on Samsung's internal testing conditions using a UHS-1 interface. Transfer speed may vary among different host devices and testing conditions. Transfer speed is lower with a non UHS-1 interface"

          I understand all of this but im probably not explaining it to you very well :p

          Basically if I was going to JB to buy a memory card for my phone and I wanted it to be a fast card. I'd be looking at a U3 card minimum, which is what this Samsung evo select one is.

          Btw, if anyone wants the product page:
