    As the title says, i need a SD card for a hacked Switch.

    What is the recommended size and is there anything else i should be aware of when buying a SD card?
    I want it to be reliable & not slow.

    Thanks

    I prefer the Samsung EVO's; not that expensive and fast speeds; about 90MBps read and write on the larger capactities.
    I recommend at least 256GB seeing as that holds a fair amount of games; it's only about 45 euro's here in Europe.
    A 512GB one is also pretty affordable at about 85 euro's.

    Be wary of imitation microsdcards though; as a rule of thumb: if it's a lot cheaper then priced by regular dealers, it's most likely fake.

    I've used various SD cards (no-brand, Toshiba, Samsung) but never noticed much speed differences although all the cards have different specs. A decent brand class-10 card should be fine.

    About the size : the bigger the better.
    With a 64GB you run out of space quickly with some of those big games like Pokemon (9GB) or SmashBros (+15GB).
    Also if you use your Switch as a videoplayer (with PPLay) then you will also need some more space.

    If you're planning to use emuNAND on your Switch, faster is better. If you're sysNAND-only, then 75/80mbs+ is enough :)
    Like Danster75, I'm using a 512Gb Samsung EVO (bought on the french version of Pepper for 60€ !! So proud of that deal lol) and it's working pretty well !
    Don't forget to format it on FAT32.
