Samsung Or Sandisk for High Endurance MicroSD?

Trying to decide between the Samsung Pro Endurance 64GB and the Sandisk High Endurance 64GB MicroSDXC cards to use in my dash cam. The Samsung card is on sale on Newegg so they are both about the same price. I don't know much about these cards so was hoping to get some help in deciding. Also open to other brand cards in this price range. Any help is appreciated.

Sandisk: https://www.amazon.ca/SanDisk-Endurance ... -064G-G46A

I have silicon power as my high endurance SD.
I haven't run into any issue, I also use their reg micro SD card.
Reason I bought them they were on sale on Amazon.

Also I remember reading that Sandisk weren't recommended for dash cam. Sandisk

What capacity is your high endurance card and how much did you pay?

Also, I glanced at the article you linked and they don't recommend the Sandisk Ultra card which is is a regular high speed memory card not designed for high endurance application. The article actually DOES recommend the Sandisk high endurance card for dash cam application.
On the other hand, I did not find much information in regards to the Samsung Pro Endurance card and how it compares to the Sandisk high endurance card.

I just grabbed a 32gb for $24.99.
Also I stand corrected on the Sandisk information.

No, you are correct on the SanDisk. The reason being is because they are not advertising there is a MLC chip. In every case I've seen, if they do not advertise they use MLC, it is not used and this is reflected on the price. I too also use the SiliconPower High Endurance memory card. I bought it off amazon for $50 for 64GB and they advertise they use MLC. MLC is more expensive to implement and it would make sense to inform their customers what they are paying for. As far as I know, only Silicon Power, Transcend, Kingston and Adata advertise that they use MLC for some of their cards. Possibly more brands now claim so, but those are the few major brands from what I know.
