SanDisk MicroSDXC card for Nintendo Switch (128 GB)
The best microSD card
This microSD card is fast, consistent, and reasonably priced. It’s good for phones, tablets, game consoles, and more.
May be out of stock
The Switch card is fast, consistent, comes from a reputable company, has a picture of a mushroom on it, and works in anything that takes a microSDXC card, not just the Switch. Most of the 128 GB cards we tested are fast enough but are more expensive and harder to find, or were slower than the Switch card in one or more tests. The Switch card performed well in all of them and (for now, at least) is easy to find without sorting through a bunch of third-party sellers hawking fakes.
Samsung Evo Select (128 GB)
A good fallback
Cheap, reliable, and almost always available, the Evo Select is a good choice for most uses, though its random writes are slower than most of the competition.
May be out of stock
If the SanDisk Switch card is too expensive or unavailable from first-party sellers, or if you need a card that’s on GoPro’s compatibility list, get the Samsung Evo Select (128 GB). The Evo Select is an Amazon-exclusive rebrand of the Samsung Evo Plus, and it’s almost always available. Its random write speeds aren’t as good as the Switch card’s, so it’s not as good for running apps or operating systems, but its sequential speeds are right up there, so it’s great for media storage and recording, and it’s usually a buck or two cheaper.
SanDisk MicroSDXC card for Nintendo Switch (64 GB)
If you don’t need 128 GB
The 64 GB Switch card is a good choice if you don’t need 128 GB of storage or you want to save a few bucks.
We have found that 128 GB microSD cards are the most cost-effective capacity right now. But if you don’t need all that space or you just want to save a few bucks, we recommend any of the following cards: The SanDisk MicroSDXC card for Nintendo Switch (64 GB) is among the fastest cards we tested in every benchmark, but the 64 GB capacities of the Evo Select or the Kingston Canvas React, Canvas Go, and Canvas Select are fine too.
