Anyone have any comments on the Aeon Towers in the flyer? Specifically the two on the second page (3096 and 5180 models). Thanks.

Wait, does the switch even support U3? I read that it only supports U1 microsd cards...

U3 means at least 30m/s write speed. The best option for Switch is SANDISK microSDXC CARDS FOR NINTENDO SWITCH, just google it. The lowest write speed is 90m/s.

I did google it, which is where I read that the switch only supports UHS1. Is U3 referring to something different than UHS3? An article written Dec 2018 on Nintendo life shows the "SanDisk Ultra 200GB
microSDXC Card" as being the best card... This card is listed on sale in the CC flyer on sale.

"... the Switch only supports UHS-1 cards, which max out at 104MB/s in terms of speed. The UHS-2 types are three times faster, with a 312MB/s speed but that's irrelevant as the Switch doesn't currently support them"

Can you buy then online for in-store pickup?

They are different things. The UHS Speed Classes defined by the SD Association are UHS Speed Class 1 (U1) and UHS Speed Class 3 (U3). U1 and U3 can be applied to UHS Bus IF product family (UHS-I, UHS-II & UHS-III). Anyway, just grab one you prefer.

Hi guys,

Is there anyone can recommend a good mesh system to improve my wifi?

Is mesh even reliable? How is mesh compared to extender using old routers? Thank you guys!

100% worth it. Bought two of those PG279Qs when they were over a grand each. Might buy a third now that it's on sale. But be prepared to return a couple of times due to BLB.

I've used Google's WifI mesh for years now, and I'll never go back. It seamlessly switches between my hubs.

The MSI 570 8Gb for $149 after $20 MIR is not bad.
Without the MIR would have been a hot deal.
