[Amazon.ca] SanDisk high endurance video monitoring card 32GB

These High Endurance SD Cards work best for dashcam. According to camelx3, this is the lowest price.

It is currently out of stock, but you can still place an order for this price.

I would wait until the 64GB version goes on sale again for $30 like last month, there was a thread around somewhere here in expired deals.

Wished I had a time machine because it was only on sale for the one day and then went out of stock...it came back in stock a day later but the price then went to $38.

I just bought the 32 gb one at this price. Don't really need 64gb capacity. I find that these things break for no reason...it really is YMMV so spending less means I'm out less $ if it breaks.
We're all bozos on the bus until we find a way to express ourselves...

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

Out of curiosity, anyone running a dashcam manage to kill a non high endurance Sandisk card? I got a normal one before I found out about the high endurance ones and just wondering how much life remains.

Depends on what you define as 'kill'. I'd never wait for a card to be completely unusable before replacing; as soon as it requires a reformat or starts skipping clips, then its being relegated to less important uses.

Now I follow a mini maintenance schedule:
- monthly checks to make sure there aren't any missing clips,
- replace the SD card every 6 months,

But to answer your question, I typically use ADATA cards, and they'll last about a year of light driving (<12,000 kms).

When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

I've been through a couple. Seems like they last about a year to a year and a half.

The durability of the card depends on the type of NAND (negative and) gates used in the microSD. Common types are TLC and MLC. MLC is more durable than TLC, anywhere 2-7 times more write cycles before experiencing failure.

You can find out what type of NAND your sd card uses, then use the expected number write cycles to estimate when you might need a new card.

First determine the average amount of data you write to the sd card weekly, divide that by the size of your sd card to find out how many times you overwrite the data weekly, divide that into the expected number of write cycles to find out when (in weeks) you'll start seeing failures with your card.

May be I am lucky? I have my Adata card in my dash cam for 2 years or so; gone thru at least 25K KM already. Still working fine. But, I would take it out and do a quick scandisk one of these days.

Thanks OP, can never be too prepared for dash cam card failures.

Too bad they only allow one purchase.
RFD: Pick any two.
  • In stock
  • Low Price
  • Quality Product
