    Is there a SDXC that you'd recommend for the switch?

    Can't go wrong with basically any class 10 SanDisk or Samsung.

    Thanks, more or less what I suspected :)

    Only UHS 1, tho, yes?

    AFAIK yes. Haven't bought or tried out any UHS-2 cards yet.

    AFAIK, Switch hardware cannot take advantage of UHS2.

    Have you ever used OV SDXC? The price is great, but I am concerned about quality.

    Nope, I only just recently got my first microSDXC. Mostly just been re-using standard mSDs and mSDHCs.

    May I ask another thing? What does it mean when I read "UHS 1 Grade 1 Class 10"?

    No clue. Pretty much only brand name that's going to make the difference.

    Any recommendation on size, however?

    Depends on how much you want to spend. Amazon usually has good deals on 64gb, 128gb, and 200gb. For now I wouldn't say you need any more than an extra 64gb. That'll get you through a year or more of digital releases along with the 25gb internal on Switch.

    Either Class 10 or UHS-1 is good. The latter is better for its efficiency. However, I doubt Switch would put that much stress on an UHS-1 micro-SDXC differently from a Class 10.

    UHS-1 is more ideal for action cams or photographic cameras which require more efficient output.
