Found this when I search microSD to upgrade my dashcam's storage. Seems good price (lowest price was $34.30 last April 2024) but found out that this one is not designed for Dashcam :(.

Anyone have experience using this on their dashcam?

    Anyone have experience using this on their dashcam?

    Also, doesn't seem to be suitable for outdoor security cameras.

    256GB Samsung PRO Endurance would be the best option. The price on this one just got bumped up to $75.

    its normally $36 from amazon au

    • Yeah, bought 2 a month ago and they were $35.69.

  • Not recommended by Viofo: https://support.viofo.com/support/solutions/articles/1900013…

    But then again, I've been using a 128GB Samsung Evo Plus in my A129 duo for years without issue so ¯_(ツ)_/¯

      Is it only for Viovo brand or can be generalised? I'm using ATGA, and in the requirements it say "MicroSD Card Class 10 or above is required."

      Some forum says it is more economical to have high endurance because we need to replace MicroSD for dashcam every 2 years (but can't explain why Sandisk Max Endurance has 10 years limited warranty)

    • I've seen this, but isn't odd they sell this exact card in their Australian store: https://www.viofo.com.au/product/sandisk-high-endurance-micr…

        Viofo Australia (aka Landwell Trading Pty Ltd) is really just an authorised reseller of VIOFO products, their connection with the company they’re named after is only skin deep. Prior to 2021, they traded under “PlayStation Australia” which was also not really affiliated that closely with Sony as the name implies.

        VIOFO Australia makes some strange product choices, like not carrying VIOFO branded MicroSD cards in favour of microSD cards that are explicitly not supported - and when it’s the manufacturer (VIOFO), not the reseller (VIOFO Australia) that processes warranty claims… whose word should you trust?

    • I think Viofo do it based on the number of write cycles the cards can handle.

      I have used numerous cards in dashcams and none have had any intermitted issues in terms of saving files. The one big failure was when the card went into read only mode due to the write cycles exceeded, but you can tell because the LED flashes a lot and the screen stays on, but these are to be expected.

      My tip is get the biggest card that the dashcam can support and the highest level of endurance, this prolongs the write cycles. But whatever you do stay away from 64GB cards as they will hit the write cycle limit quickly especially if you are recording higher resolution video. On my old dashcam the card failed after the dashcam broke.

    • I got the Max endurance 256gb from Officeworks with price beat (over the phone) with the Amazon $64 seller, so it was about $61. Not sure how good that is compared to normal, but was the cheapest I could find at the time. I was surprised they did the price beat though, they have it for $159.

  • Thanks OP. I just got a new dash cam lol

    ah poo poo I bought the SAMSUNG PRO Plus earlier today… wonder if there is a real world difference in durability

      Mine (Samsung Pro Endurance) showed some problem recently, after less than 2 years being used. My dashcam keep telling me that the card is full even after I formatted it. Changed to another microSD (not the endurance series), no error.

      Not sure whether mine is bad product or I did something wrong.

      • Having same problem with my scandisk 256GB pro endurance

        Been using for 2 yrs with REDTIGER F7N Dash Cam 4K

      • +4

        Even if it is an endurance product, using it for 24/7 for 2 years seems to be over its lifespan. They don't last forever.

        • Probably replaced their tires in that time lol

        • +2

          It's not being used 24/7 unless it's by a rotating series of truck drivers on amphetamines. For a dashcam, it's being used when the car is driving.

          Should last longer than 2 years.

          • @rumblytangara: Agreed. Surely most people are using dashcams that only operate whilst the engine is turned on?

            I think that the real culprit is heat damage, not write cycles.

    • I think in terms of factory claimed spec the Samsung is much better. ** Edit sorry this claim relates to endurance vs endurance.

  • Their marketing seems to say it's good for dashcams

  • +1

    These are rubbish, had them for 2 of my dashcams and within a month it got bricked

    • Any suggestion for a good brand for dashcam? Thought Samsung is good - but apparently I don't have good experience with it.

      • +1

        I would suggest the Samsung pro endurance. Have them on all my cars, family and friends. Have not skipped a beat with them

  • -3

    SanDisk Extreme is the king of dashcam cards. Difference between Extreme and Extreme Pro is minimal so not necessary to buy the Pro.

    • Thought we have to get the endurance to ensure it is survive Aussie harse climate 😀?

    • +2

      What does a high bandwidth, average endurance card have to do with dashcam usage?

  • +1

    Seems to be available again for even cheaper at $32.36

    • Updated this post. Thank you!

    went to check on my delivery estimates and this are $29.29 now
