Considering their prices, I'd say none. I'd rather buy 128GB cards right now, as they cost about 1/5th of a 400GB or 1/7th of a 512GB card. A 128GB microSD card costs only about 20€, but a 400GB about 100€ and a 512GB card about 150€ right now, so neither of those are really worth it.

Prices are ok i guess, just want one that hold many games :)

This, it is by no means expensive for that sweet 512GB of storage:

https://www.amazon.com/PNY-Elite-MicroSD-Card-P-SDUX512U3100PRO-GE/dp/B07KD4XJLX/ref=sr_1_9?fst=as%3Aoff&qid=1565496392&refinements=p_n_feature_two_browse-bin%3A13203835011&rnid=6518301011&s=pc&sr=1-9

Or this for only 36.99 256 GB:

I'd buy two of the Samsung 256s mentioned above, if I wanted a lot of storage.

I like 512gb though, it works on Switch correct? Do you have this one?

I would strongly advise against a PNY product when it comes to data storage, I've had run ins with them in both SD card and portable HDD's which were trying to recover files for customers because of failures in the drive. Product has just a 4 star review on Amazon as well with a lot of complaints about failure, keep in mind 4 stars on there means 4 good reviews to 1 bad but people who get a bad product are about 20 times more likely to leave a review so the balance of failed to good products isn't 4:1 but probably more 80:1 ... but that's still rather bad compared to Sandisk or Samsung SD cards failure rates.

https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-400GB-microSDXC-Memory-Adapter/dp/B074RNRM2B/ref=sr_1_3?crid=3DLR9OBJ51V9A&keywords=400gb+micro+sd+card&qid=1565498052&s=gateway&sprefix=400%2Caps%2C224&sr=8-3

That's the SD card I use in my Switch, It's slightly more costly per GB since you're getting 400 rather than 512 but 19k reviews landing at 4.5 stars going with the 20 to 1 good to bad reviews you're talking about 180:1 failure rate so you've less than half the chances to get a bad card from Sandisk

The 256GB samsung listed there was what I used before moving to the 400gb, it was a solid card as well but with games ilke Doom, DCU, Warframe, Resident Evil Rev 2 and a few more ranging between 20-30GB per title you really should consider getting the larger card and you wont be deleting and redownloading software all the time if you want tons of games.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

I bought this one back in January. Works great. Lots of space but I have so many digital games that it's full already. Highly recommend.

That's 2 votes for this card in this thread after 1 hour :)

Speaking of full SD cards... did you see the size of DCUO? It finally got me to remove Doom2016 from my SD card which I've finished a bunch of times but will go back to when a Switch pro appears because I would love to see that game on handheld where it could lock to 720p more often, those dynamic res titles are going to be great when beefier hardware lands some time next year.
