Waiting for the 64GB to go down to $29.99 again :)
But, still a good deal for the 32GB.

I have a question. If I have a dashcam does it make more sense to get a 32 GB high endurance SD Card over a 64 GB? I figure the data is going to get overwritten anyways so it does not matter how much total memory there is.

Definitely high endurance. What matters is the amount of writes to the card, not over-writes. Most cash cams write to the card every 5min (in my case that’s about 300-500MB at a time).

The 64gb means the data is overwritten half as often as the 32gb, so it should last longer. If you use parking mode or drive a lot i'd get the 64, otherwise get the 32 this is an amazing price.

I guess that dashcams that traditionally have issues with other Sandisk cards will also have issues with Sandisk high endurance cards right?

in my opinion, 32GB card is enough if you don't drive long distance every day. According to the site linked below, 32gb card will let you record 3~4 hours of footage in 1080p so that should be enough for most people.

I think you might be mistaken. Your dashcam might make 5min video files that are 300-500MB in size, but to hold that much in buffer and write it all out at once doesn't make sense, especially considering the write speed on these cards, it might take at best 15 seconds at 20MB/s writing 300MB.

A 64GB card will on paper outlast a 32GB card of the same family since there are about twice as many gates to rewrite (the storage circuit gets used half as much in the 64GB).

Depending on the type of storage used, the more durable type can last 3-7x longer than the cheaper/less durable type.

Sorry, you are right: the card does get written to more than every 5 minutes. Silly of me to say otherwise.

But I suppose the rest of the statement is correct since I believe the question was between a 32GB HIgh Endurance card vs a “standard # of writes” 64 GB card.

lol, I literally bought from Newegg yesterday because I was tired of waiting for Amazon to re-stock. They were $20.58 each but I had to pay for shipping

Oh well.

interesting that, there's dedicated memory cards for dash/security cams now.

i'm using a sandisk i got @ costco 5 years ago and it's working perfectly with my itronics itb-100hd since. hasn't missed a beat yet!

I'm using a 32GB Lexar that goes on sale around $10.00 on Amazon for over two years without any issues either.
