Any reason not to use this as extra mass storage for a laptop? Just for files

What is longevity of an SD card... trying to keep good copies of important files and not rely on a hard disk .

To think that 5 years ago 128gb micro sd cards cost the same, there must be some price fixing going on again...
Different brand, and this one is "High Endurance" so technically better than normal micro sd cards. People buy these for 24/7 recording.
Never tried them myself, but I thought I mention that the comparison is not apples to apples.

Edit: forgot to mention that older cards were Class 10 U1. These are U3, which is faster.

Why would you want to? Maybe you are using your camera for some niche purpose, but I can't think of a single reason why you would be writing to the card that often in a camera..

These endurance cards are meant for well, endurance, and not for speed. For about the same price you can get something much faster than 100MB/s read, 40MB/s write. I would recommend a card with the fastest write you can find, as they will generally help the most. For instance:

The Sandisk equivalent is the Extreme Pro.

It is designed to sustain more write cycle than typical SD card. Some Sandisk H.E. has SLC + 3D TLC like typical SSD, makes it a decent spare storage option with laptop SD card reader. But like any SD card, they usually fail without warning, so make sure you have a backup copy in cloud or other storage.

Yes if you mainly use your DSLR for video, Otherwise as Verdic said, the highspeed options from Sandisk/Kingston/Samsung will do a better job to handle sustained write especially if you shoot RAW. The Extreme, the Extreme Pro, Samsung PRO cost more but probably has same or better endurance rating than the Sandisk High Endurance.

All 128gb are still in the low 20's, tell me how that happens after 5 years?

The price is good so long as you get the real thing. It might be 128 GB but is there a way to test that it’s high endurance?

Ill be that guy.

Since its amazon, make sure you use something like H2testw to check if your card is legit. Check the read and write speeds. Amazon is well known for mixing 3rd party scammers and cards sold by amazon.ca so even if you buy amazon.ca (not fulfilled, etc), you still can get a counterfeit one

EDIT: fixed spelling

You can, but you're paying extra for nothing.

High endurance cards are meant for applications with very high amounts of writes. Video cameras and things like Raspberry Pi's are good examples of where a high endurance card is a very good idea.

DSLRs don't write anywhere near as much data over time.

No. I recommend you test your card with something like hwtest no matter WHERE you buy your cards. Amazon or otherwise, doesn't matter, ALWAYS test the card.

Op provided a price range. I assume you didn't check the all of the sellers within the stated range.

Yes, Raspberry Pi's don't need massive data transfer speeds, you need high endurance because of the ton of small writes Raspian does.
