    Hi,

    Maybe you can help me out here.
    I want to buy a SD Card for Loadiine but there are so much different types that I'm getting confused :(
    What specs do I have to look for here? (SDHC, UHS-1, Class 4,6, 10)

    For example:
    Toshiba 32GB SDHC € 11,95
    Transcend SDHC 32GB Class 10 € 14,60
    Intenso SDHC Class 10 € 19,-
    Kingston Class 10 UHS-I SDHC 32GB € 17,44

    Thank you

    UHS-1 or higher would be best, but class 10 arent horrible. some games take a bit to load tho.

    Both have a minimum transfer speed of 10MB/s (Class 10 and UHS-1). Basically in layman terms (from my understanding), if the device supports it UHS offers better access times and speeds. So, you can read/write x more times than regular class 10, even in class 10 mode because of better access times (i guess).

    So a crappy UHS and a Class 10 can both max out at the same read speed, but maybe not randomly accessed multiple files. I hope this helps a little.

    Btw, that kingston I would probably buy myself, but I always go for cheaper. But prefer SanDisk over Kingston at any rate. Haha

    Does the Wii U even support UHS-3 speeds? I wonder what the hardware limitation is.

    I've been buying PNY Elite SD cards for my 3DS systems. Just got a 32GB for the WiiU but haven't tested it just yet. NES remix loaded in about 3 seconds after launching SSB which was faster than my micro SD's in an adapter.

    I usually get PNY too, they are pretty good. I like their products, but they can be hit and miss some times on their cheaper items. Usually just exchanging them fixes that though.

    That does not look like a good card, especially based on the price for its "featureset". Not saying it won't work, but that card could cause issues down the line. One thing to keep in mind is that storage is cheap to produce, but good performing storage is not, and reflected in the price of the product.

    tl;dr - You get what you pay for.

    It's 45mbps, I've only played one game and I don't notice anything. All loads instantly.. What's a good way to test it for you?

    You can also try SM3D World. With a PNY Elite (90MBs Read) it took about 5 minutes to finally load the game to title, then another minute after selecting player, then another minute or two after opening cinematic to get to overworld, then another minute or two to get into the first level.
