Would these be good MicroSD cards to get?

    None of them... those are GENERIC microSD cards., meaning, cheap sometimes get expensive :B (they get broke super easy)

    I just found these two on Newegg

    How much space do you use though? I plan on having like 20 or so .3DS games. Would 64 do well for me?

    I do not suggest getting cheap microSD cards for use, as you will regret it when either they die so fast or they end up to be fake (Especially that 128GB microSD, it really might only have 8GB real capacity and will be broken once you put files on there.)

    Can't go wrong with bestbuy, there return policy is solid and I never had a problem, the geak squad in my area know about fake sd cards.

    Only buy flash memory (or batteries) from eBay as a last resort. The percentage of fake and counterfeit items is very high.

    Get either of these from Amazon. They are the best bang for your buck. I have multiple of these in 32 and 64 GB and can confirm they work great in o3ds and n3ds (I have 3). No tax and if you know someone with Prime you can have them at your door Thursday free shipping. I just ordered one of each 64.

    The Sandisk extreme is good but the 3ds can not utilize the speed if you have usb 3.0 maybe it will copy files faster.

    I got a sandisk recently, how can I test if it is legitimate and holds the advertised amount?
