That guy talked about mostly about his readers, but yeah. There is no real point in buying an expensive card that your device can't take advange of. If your device is limited to 100Mbps, then what is the point of buying a 200Mbps card. It will still write at 100Mbps.video_speed-class_01.jpg

Since top cards can occasionally give you slow-write errors on XSP’s, I stick with ones that simply work w/o issues, formatted on a computer. So far, that’s been primary the SanDisk Ultra 64GB, about $12 on Amazon...

Interesting. I have the exact same one but from Lexar. Have you done time lapses? How does it cope in H265 60fps? Do you lose photos or frames while recording? I haven't used it on a drone, in fear that I would ruin a perfect shot due to a slowish card. Someone in here told me against using it.

In all honestly, with all the conterfeits out there, I am skeptical into buying SD cards online, unless it's a Samsung one. Only Samsung ones have the edges white, which is stupidly hard to replicate, so counterfeiters don't even bother doing it. Those who sale original ones, put a photo of the SD card sideways showing this white edge.
