Same price as the Amazon-specific Samsung U3 microSD card (which includes the adapter) so I'm not sure the price is so amazing unless there's a huge real world performance difference (?).

Good luck!

This card is UHS-II SDXC (not micro SD) and this is a much faster card. Apples and Oranges.

For reference, this card is $49 at Adorama. This is lowest price by far for anything comparable.

Though I haven't seen any specific performance data for these drives, I have been able to parse the alphabet soup of labels.

Both drives are U3 rated, suggesting that they meet the same minimum sustained throughput rates appropriate to the U3 speed class of 30MB/second.

However, the Amazon drive is UHS-I while the Lexar is UHS-II. In those devices which support UHS-II the Lexar has the potential to exhibit higher peak transfer rates.

Of course, real-world testing would prove out the real differences between the two devices and there is no reason to assume that the UHS-II device would be higher performing when placed in a UHS-I capable/limited client.

Good luck!

I have no idea why you continue to compare apples and oranges.

UHS-II is faster than UHS-I. If you use a UHS-II card in a UHS- I device, it works but you are obviously not going to achieve UHS-II speeds. It's a bit like having a USB3 device and interfacing it with a USB2 device.

If you want a full size 64GB SD card then buy the one in the OP. Even if you were only going to use it in a UHS-I device (i) it is still a very fast card (ii) it is more future proof. For example If you bought a UHS-II to USB3 or USB-C card reader you will have significantly shorter uploaded times.

The only reason why you would purchase that Amazon card you refer to is if you wanted a MICRO SD CARD (i.e. a completely different product).

This is a great deal. No Microcenter in my area, can anyone tell me if I'll have any luck with a price match? Maybe Fry's, Best Buy, Target. etc..

My BestBuy and Target stores do not sell this card, so no luck for price match. Expensive MSRP.
I just read the reviews on Amazon and it's bad.
