Saw a 256gb at Walmart for a pretty gpod price, but I dont know if they are worth it or not? I only have 128gb now, and am constantly running of of space and having to delete things.

onn is a walmart cheap electronic manufacturer. It's official, so if they are using V30 sign, then it's real. But we don't know how long it will live before it get first corruptions.

Thats what im worried about. I know their electronics arent really top of the line, but I dont know how badly they could screw up an SD card.

Personally, I only trust Sandisk, Samsung, and Kingston. Never had a problem with any of their flash storage devices. I do have to admit, I've been using a crucial ssd as an OS drive that I got, used, 6 years ago, and S.M.A.R.T. reports nothing wrong with it yet.

at this point i can swear on Adata sd cards. the have never failed on me on about 8-10 year of use. ( i bought the first one because of good warranty in my country - iran - but never had to use the service despite having multiple ones. )

~$10 difference, so probably not worth the risk.

From my experience, the only real benefit I've seen to Sandisk is that they're more likely to enter Read Only mode compared to rivals when they fail.

Of course it depends on how important the data is to you vs the money vs any warranty.

Read only mode saved me when my girlfriends SD failed in her 3DS. It would be for my switch running Emunand, but also OFW with all my saves, so I dont know if it would be worth it in case I lost it all.

On OFW AFAIK saves are stored on the internal NAND, without something redirecting it.

Funnily enough he said he went and exchanged it for the same brand and it's working fine. :Thinking:
That’s because when I put the backplate back on my switch after having SD reader problems I forgot to take the SD card out and it cracked because I pushed it on and thought the snap was just the plate snapping into place, the cracked SD Card went Nuclear which I’m pretty sure all SDcards will do when cracked
