What do I look for in a microSD card?

Recommended Posts

I've got a Surface Go. Love it. It does what I want, out of a consumer product.

I'd like to expand the storage by adding a microSD card. It has a slot for it. However, I don't want to get one that will die a year after purchase. I know that there's some sort of rating for microSD cards - only I've no idea what the rating means. So, I'm asking here, what do I look for, in order to get a really reliable microSD card for my Surface Go, that will give me years worth of service?

Class 10 micro sd cards have fast reads and writes and are optimum for that application. Get a brand name, like sandisk or samsung from a reputable vendor.

There are a lot of fakesor rebranded crap out there.

I think you pay a preminum for the highest capacity cards from a vendor 128 or 256 gigs seems to be the sweet spot for $/gig

That being said get the largest drive you can afford
