    Considering purchasing http://amzn.eu/jlCUKMa

    Has anyone tried filling it up for a large collection of Emulation ROM's and Switch games and come across any issues? Wondering if large capacity might have some complications like Switch restrictions if any.

    No but I'm looking forward to buy one of those, from what I've read they should work without a problem with the Switch...

    Edit: If I remember correctly the Switch supports micro sd up to 2 TB.

    I’m using a sandisc 200gb A1 microSD and it’s faster than my samsung 128gb microSD Card.

    400gb will also work, if the 400gb microSD card will cost less I will buy one for my switch.

    The switch support all sizes of microSD XC card so if you want to use a 400gb one, it will work just fine but just my it from verified resellers because there are a lot of fake microSD cards out there which looks like an original one

    I've got a 400GB sandisk card in my switch! It's awesome - so much space!!!!
    I've got about 40 games, all updated and still have over 130GB free space.
    No issues.

    Yep have been using it for months.

    Have done a lot of experimenting with pfba and its full romset, psnes and a full romset of snes etc etc.
    The capacity is ofcourse not 400GB its more like 366GB actually but the Switch works wonderful with it.
    No hickups regarding the card itself or anything.

    I would recommend it, really if you want the extra bump in size.

    Only thing I would like to note is OSX and Switch formatted cards but that is a different story.
    They tend to have a love hate relationship when it comes to folders every no and again.

    400gig is overkill for ROMs on older systems, but would be great for Switch games. I'd go buy one at a brick & mortar tho, not online (unless online front for a major B&M) too much fraud in that market.

    I'm kind of just waiting to see if TX adds support for USB loading. It was in their FAQ as something on their to-do list.

    I thought having a 32gb was impressive, now I feel small.
