[US] Samsung Pro High Endurance MicroSD card, 128GB @$30/35

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I paid $28 for 64gb 5 months ago, so this is almost double the storage for the same price just under 5 months after my purchase! Talk about buyers remorse :D 

 

Newegg Link, Promo code EMCTYVA37

Amazon Link ($35 but prime shipping)

Amazon Price History

 

Why High Endurance?

 

High endurance memory is for situations like mine where I'm using it in a Dashcam, meaning it can get as hot as 140ºF in the summer time, and the card will be constantly written to (and overwriting itself) for its entire lifespan, sometimes in high FPS, sometimes in high resolution, and very rarely read from. Some Dashcams will actually reject SD cards if they're not rated high enough. 

 

If you're just looking for more phone storage, Samsung has their EVO series which is around $21 for 128GB (on amazon)

It’s crazy how cheap MicroSD have gotten. 

 

I think it was 2 years ago I bought a 64gb Sandisk Ultra for close to $60. Now they’re $10 at B&H

Out of curiosity, do you have a dash cam? If so, which one and how is the quality? I've been thinking of buying one for my wife's car but I don't want potato quality/lag

 I'm using it in a Dashcam,

;) 

 

I bought mine from Massdrop so I didnt pay that price

This was an upgrade from my Blacksys CH100B-2CH which was 1080p@30 front, 720p@30 rear. The new one is 1080p@60 front and 1080p@30 rear. 

 

As you can see I bought the "Magic pro hardwire kit" which allows you to hardwire into your car AND set timings for when you want the dashcam to record in a "parking mode" but I didnt care about parking mode and my unit came defective so I bought just a simple hardwire wire with inline fuses off amazon so that the dashcam is only on when the car is on.
