Says a limited time deal and appears be as fast (spec wise) as SanDisk extreme.
Watch the write speeds though… Lexar is notorious for quoting reading speeds, and anything less than their 2000x cards have a pretty bad ratio of write speeds being half read speeds
The write speed is not great, but not bad either. It fluctuates between 33M/s and 37M/s from USB 3.0 to the card on my laptop.
so this is even slower than a traditional spinning hard drive?
Must hodl for a samsung evo 512gb at <$99
This was ~$97 during the 10% black Friday discount + you get 6% in cashback.
The Evo didn't have the "A2" badge on it like this did so I held off, is the A2 badge mean much?
These are quite good. The A2 is Android certification for running apps direct from the card, instead of from your phone storage.
The A2 rating specifies the minimum number of I/O operations that can be performed in a second (IOPS).
Strangely Samsung Evo Plus cards seem to outperform A2 certified cards when it comes to IOPS despite not having the A2 badge.
It seems like the formatted capacity of this card is 461 GB instead of the usual 477 GB that's on Samsung cards.
I have one. The capacity after format is 464GB
Good card for all those recent dashcam deals?
Might want a high endurance card instead
meh, i've run dashcam over 5 years and none of my card failed, even the lower specs class 10 or UHS1. The only cards ever failed on me are 2 from the raspberry pi.
Not recommended. My 64GB model failed in my Viofo 119 V3 within a few months of not intensive use.
But fine for general use outside the dashcam.
Yep, the only sdcard brand that failed on me… maybe just unlucky
I have a corrupted Sandisk 200gb that contains all of my daughter's baby photos. Able to salvage 90% of them but it's painful
I had a 64Gb version on my SS phone for about 2 years and one day it just died without any reason. Lost all unbacked up data there.
