Figured I'd post this because it might be a good cheap storage solution for switch. Seems to be durable with more magnetic resistance than typical cards.

I'm using a 45mb Lexar in my Switch without any drama. This card would be fine.

The official licensed ones made by Hori has 80MB/s read and 15MB/s write.

Considering the EVO+ can be found fairly often at $40 I think it's worth it for almost double read/write speeds.

They were as low as $1-$5 dollars on clearance about 1-2 months ago but all shot back up to $34.88 about 3 weeks ago. If I could find one $20 or less I'd probably bite regardless.

Oh, and in my experience, this item's quantity count on Brickseek is way, way off. I went to 2 wal-marts that said they had 15+ in stock and none could be found and employees confirmed others had asked and they had none in stock.

For those thinking of getting the Samsung - EVO+ 256GB microSDXC UHS-I Class 10 Memory Card:

 

Some Best Buy stores have it at $99 (Was $249.99).  I found them at this price in Lewisville and Park Lane (DFW Area).  They may not have them in stock but you can ask CS to order them for you online at that price.  Current online price is $149.99, hence the need to get to a store with a $99 shelf sticker price.

It was a deal, then OP asked if this deal was good for switch. So it's kinda in the middle. I'll allow it.

Is it true that you can't place Switch game saves on the any card?

Has 12 total ratings, and not even at 100% feedback.

 

Will sell the one linked in the OP for $30 shipped, if anybody is interested.

Why does your signature have a typo in it?

Do not respond with comments that just seem to be a waste of time. Information is golden.

It probably doesn't work and is probably only 4 gb. Someone got lazy and didn't want to bother finishing counterfeiting.
