SanDisk Ultra 32GB micro SDHC UHS-I Card with Adapter, Grey/Red, Standard Packaging (SDSQUNC-032G-GN6MA)
Start the write process and go grab a coffee, you’re going to be there for a while
I’m a SanDisk fan and have owned many of their products over the years, SSD’s and memory cards/thumb drives. All have been rock solid and I’ve not had a single one fail, even the SSD’s we use in our production servers that run 24/7. So generally, I’m pretty happy with them. I’m a little less happy however with this card.
The rated read/write speeds are somewhat more optimistic than I have encountered with other SanDisk products. I also have an issue with being informed that an 8GB file is too large to be copied over to a 32GB card. Looking at the partition its Fat32! Say what? I’ve never seen this before with any Micro SD card and I own several so it makes me wonder why this card comes formatted FAT32 vs. exFAT which is universally accepted by every OS and electronic device that uses the micro SD card format. A quick format to exFAT or NTFS and the size issue goes away and the card can now be used for large file transfer plus non-PC items can now fully use it including a finicky dash cam.
Back the red write speeds. Writes are painfully slow when compared to USB 3. Read speed was ok topping out at about 77mb/sec. I admit that a write speed of +/-21mb/sec is good enough for most things like video cameras, dash cams, still cameras, and mp3 players but when you want to use it for file transfers you may as well go get a coffee while it chugs along.
The included SD adapter is the usual that comes with every micro SD card.
The big bonus with that comes with buying SanDisk is their warranty. 10-years is a pretty darn good indication that the company stands behind their products.
As for the chatter about counterfeit SanDisk cards being sold through Amazon. Are you serious? Any seller that would try to pull that will soon find themselves being served and no longer selling through the world’s largest online retailer. For me, I won’t waste any brain time worrying about something like this when I buy here. And in the highly unlikely event that someone got a counterfeit card, why did they not put in a claim with Amazon and return it? They take this sort of thing pretty seriously.
