Are these also impacted by "fake" issues with Amazon and sd cards? I mean does Amazon mix them up with 3rd party seller inventory?

IMO, the sandisk extreme's are way better value:

GO - 128gb for $37

PRO - 128gb for $50

https://www.amazon.ca/SanDisk-256GB-Ext ... =8-11&th=1

I think most people care a lot more about write speed than read speed, and these are up to 10x faster.

Edit: linked both the go and pro versions.

So, if one were to get the Pro 256GB, that's $80
I guess it depends on what you think is important. These have write speeds that are up to 10x faster...

The 256GB version of the Samsung Bar OP posted can get similar write speeds to the Sandisk GO according to a few of the reviews (128's and smaller score a slower write speed). Plus twice the storage for $7 more.

I have the 64gb version of the samsung and I usually get about 15-20 MB/s write vs. 300-350 MB/s write on the sandisk. The 256gb version might be a lot faster though...

I have the 128GB version of this and love it. It's super small so it fits on my keychain. It's also made of metal so it feels great in the hand. Highly recommend.

Just ordered the 128gb one last night. Too late to cancel now. And too lazy to ship back. Dang.
