[Amazon.ca] Lexar microSDXC UHS-I U3 Card with SD Adapter - 256GB $39.45, 512GB $76.31

Lexar High-Performance 633x 256GB microSDXC UHS-I Card with SD Adapter (LSDMI256BBNL633A) (B012PKVBAA)

Seems like a decent price for a U3 256GB card. Ships from and sold by Amazon.ca.

I don't believe Amazon comingles products that are commonly faked anymore.

Yes this is good for your Switch or other devices.

Edit - Lexar High-Performance 633x 512GB microSDXC UHS-I Card with SD Adapter (LSDMI512BBNL633A) $76.31

About the same SKU bins. They still do on some products at least as of a week ago. Friend ordered something- specially sold by Amazon, got a fake. The nice thing is they no questions took a return- though it'd be nice if they just did the whole "recycle it". Item was from ON fulfillment, shipped to BC.

About this card, very good price! comes in at under $10/64GB. If I didn't JUST pickup the Sandisk High Endurance for my dashcam, I'd think about this w/ it's "lifetime warranty". Though I'm sure fine print they'll say something about high-usage.

Is the 256 GB card good for Raspberry Pi or could I get away with 64 or 128?

Depends what you wanna do with it. I used an old 8GB because that was good enough to hold the entirety of the NES/SNES *cough* backups *cough* I have. But you may want bigger for something else?

just had my third lexar flash storage fail, the last one was the 64gb version of this card. Never buying lexar again even with the steep discounts. never had issues with my Samsung or Sandisk cards.

I echo this post - I actually bought this exact card a couple years ago and it developed issues where it wouldn't always write properly. I have around 20 SD cards and this is the only one to ever fail. For those who are unaware, Lexar was sold by Micron and is owned by some Chinese company, so it's probably no better than buying some random sd card from aliexpress.

Sound like a broken record plugging Visions SD cards, but here we go again:
https://www.visions.ca/product-detail/5 ... card_256gb - $50, double the write speed, same read speed, on sale this will be $40 or below (happens every couple months)
If you need it in microsd, they have other models but they line up less well compared to the Lexar.

I feel I've used more microSD than the average consumer, because my user pool is in the hundreds for work. Lexar aren't great priced, so we rarely buy them- but surprisingly most RMA percentage goes to Sandisk (even though I'm using a high endurance variant in my dashcam as we speak). We usually grab what's got good back end rebates from vendors. So Kingston, Samsung, Sandisk, ADATA, Patriot, and even some China no-name stuff for one-offs. Lexar seems like it's never hugely on sale, so YMMV I suppose.

No problems with mine (512GB ~80/60MBps) so far. Currently in dedicated SD slot of my old laptop server. May have better future usage since microSD can be inserted pretty much anywhere. Otherwise pre-Chia pricing impulse buy lol.
