    Hey guys, I remember loads of these threads in the 3ds sections back in the day and was curious if things are still the same

    Obviously I will need a micro sd card for my Switch, looking through my draw all I have spare is a Sandisk 32gb Class 4

    I appreciate Class 4 is old and slower but do you think it would be fast enough for the Switch ??

    I don't really want to invest in a new faster one but will if you guys think it's necessary

    What is it going to be for? Games, yes. Screenshots, no.

    Class 10 SD/micro-SD Cards are relatively cheap nowadays, especially that there is the faster memory card classification, UHS-3. You would not go wrong in ditching your old storage medium for a faster one.

    If you can, go for UHS-1. This one is more efficient than the Class 10 storage cards.

    You should go with the Samsung. I've had tons of problems with Sandisk, never with Samsung. If you want to go a step further, grab the PRO type card that uses MLC NAND instead of TLC NAND that the EVO and Sandisk cards use.
