SanDisk Ultra A1 512GB MicroSD $89.95 Delivered @ Shopping Square
Does anyone know if can price match with Office works of jbhifi?
Is this a good quality???
Can I use this for switch?
You can if you need 512GB, otherwise I'll go for smaller but faster cards.
Just get a Patriot 512GB MicroSDXC on Amazon.
The description is a bit dodgy. It says that it has "transfer Speeds of up to 120MB/s" but doesn't specify if that's the read speed or the write speed. If it's the read speed, it's unlikely that the write speed s more than 40MB/s.
It's a U1 class microSD. U1 > 10MBPS write. U3 > 30MBPS write.
yep, they've scammed lots of people in the past
How on earth are deals still allowed to be posted for them then?
If OzB won't ban them they should at least tag the deal with a warning.
I wouldn't have even known until Russ warned me: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/comment/10786130/redir. I didn't need to read far. This was the one that made me buy from Amazon instead, lol: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/368351 - using ancient tracking numbers to cheat buyers! I'm tired of this garbage attitude… i.e. "If you can get away with cheating, then cheat." Or, "If you do not cheat, you will be cheated." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ncOyYzOP3w
Who would neg me for asking a legitimate question over a very questionable store? Bizarre
Easy way to double your steam deck storage
Too slow for Steam deck tbh
Has anyone seen a decent deal on 1tb?
why this one on ebay only $39.99 is it the same??
dont buy those they dont actually have the same amount of storage as 512gb
Aren't these the same cards as the ones posted here? Why do you say that they would have less storage than these?
The image is yes. The cards maybe not so much: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/comment/10786037/redir - there's no way to tell if random ebay sellers are legit. Not even by reading the feedback, because they might post their own fake feedback, or cheat every 10th time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ncOyYzOP3w
Oh and don't miss the few messages just above too:
Why not get a much better quality Samsung card that is also much faster for only $17 more?
I have both Sandisk and Samsung cards. Three Sandisk micro SD cards have failed in a 2yr period and zero Samsung.
Also, think about the comments about Shopping Square and warranty process. Amazon RMA process is near perfect and super-easy.
why… because we are ozb' and only the cheapest is what we are after :)
And the cheapest you'll get (SanDisk quality and notorious "support")
I was about to post the same link. I don't get it. The current card in my switch is a 128gb U1 sandisk and I need a bigger one.
I've been looking for some reason not to get the cheaper and faster Samsung card, and I don't think there is one!
you're right. Samsung is the best, however, only if purchased from a reputable seller like Amazon. I wouldn't call Shopping Square a reputable seller. Why? For the reasons listed here: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/forum/shoppingsquare.com.au
plus the fact that eBay has banned them due to many complains.
Hey vrsac… What happens when they fail? I have a 128GB Samsung EVO in my phone. About a month ago the phone started popping up a message several times a day saying the card was unexpectedly removed.
contact place of purchase first. If no luck, go to Samsung directly. Hopefully you have a receipt. There is a 10yr warranty for SD cards:
I didn't realise that so I chucked the receipt a few years ago. Sorry I just realised that can be read two ways. What I meant was, is what I described the kind of behaviour you see when memory cards are about to die?
@Faulty P xel: I've had a card die just the way you've described it. Try formatting the card on a PC, full format.
@vrsac: Thank you. :-)
