For people using Emunand, what sd card are you using? Should I go for the more expensive U3 vs U1?

    For the people using Emunand, what sd card are you using? I'm currently on 128 GB SanDisk Ultra A1 100mb/s, and I'm looking to upgrade to 256 GB before I hack my switch. The Samsung Evo Plus U3 256 GB is on the market for 10 dollars (converted, I'm not in USA) more than the SanDisk Ultra A1 256 GB (basically the only difference aside from the brands are the U3 and U1 label on the cards). Budget is tight, so if there is negligible or no benefit at all to getting the Samsung, I'll definitely get the cheaper SanDisk.

    Is it for the slightly faster load times and install times? Or you think there could be more advantage especially when using Emunand?

    read and write speed is higher, 30MB/s vs 75MB/s roughly if you physically copy file to the card, it doesn't really affect game performance much.
