    What is everyone's recommendation of a nice, but not too expensive, 128GB microSD card? I don't know how long it'll be before we start getting ext HDD support, but I figure, I could get a 128GB microSD, use it now, then whenever USB support happens, I could then stuff that microSD into my o3DS, or whatever sort of handheld device comes along. Not looking into a regular-sized SD card.

    His needs for space are probably larger than your own. Wii U games consume a bit of space, so if they're looking to get one, it should probably be 64 or 128.

    Buy a micro SDXC, it says it's not compatible, but it can be formatted to fat32 to work just like any other SD, and they tend to run a lot cheaper. I got a 64 GB for 16 bucks.

    I understand the need to format to fat32. I also know to go for sdxc (if going for greater than 32GB). I recall my dad thinking he got a swell deal with a 64GB microSD some time back, but when I inspected it, it was marked with SDHC, which certainly meant it as fake (as well as having done a test that revealed it to only be 8GB, but addressed to overlap itself 8 times to make it act like 64GB).

    I got that 64gb samsung evo+
    I got the sandisk ultra for my 3ds a couple months back but the evo+ seems to be better from what I've read, and it was cheaper to get the evo+ on BB than the ultra on Amazon. Though I had gift cards to cover them on either site, happier to use the BB one since I'm less likely to buy things there.

    What did you use to check the fake SD card?
