    So if you read my previous threads you know that my microSD card died on me. I used a Sandisk Ultra 64gb XC UH-1 class 10. While I know that backing up all things you use on CFW is a necessary precaution i would like to avoid an SD card randomly dying in the future, so what MicroSD card would you suggest? I'm looking for a 128-256gb card.

    I also wanted to buy a Sandisk ultra microSD, so you dont reccommend it?
    How did it "die"? How long did it live?

    Micro SD cards along since ANY electronic device is never made to be perfect. And yes, we are very far from ever making perfect electronics anyways. Shits going to happen there aint going to be anyone one SD or anything better than another thats going to last. You will be better off getting a brand name one instead of a cheap no name. If something were to happen to it, they could look at replacing it, if it was a defective one or the such.

    I got it for Christmas 2018 and it fried around a month ago. I got the SD card from GameStop.

    There really is no such thing as the best. I've been using a cheap 128GB Silicon Power microSD (in an adapter) and it's done great for me.

    Alright I guess SanDisk will do. My card fried after about 6 months of use. I had the essential files backed up but circumstances meant I needed to hard reset my laptop and before I could backup the files the card fried

    @Urataros07, check my signature. Also, test your card with H2testw when you receive it.
