(See the very end of the review for the attached screen grabs of the actual CrystalDiskMark results).
The SanDisk 128GB microSDXC UHS-I (U3) card for Nintendo Switch achieved it's rated 100MB/second sequential read speed, but it could not even come close to it's rated 90MB/second sequential write speed. In fact, it scored only 65MB/second sequential write speed in my tests, which is the rating they give their 64GB card. This is not a good score for this card and it indicates a potential problem with their production or their marketed speed rating.

The Samsung EVO Select 128GB MicroSDXC UHS-I (U3) card also achieved it's rated 100MB/second sequential read speed, albeit a fraction behind the SanDisk card, and it achieved it's rated 90MB/second sequential write speed.

What that means to you is that you can copy or save files approximately 28% faster to the Samsung card than you could to the SanDisk card. The Samsung EVO Select 128GB MicroSDXC card is also substantially less money than the SanDisk card. As I write this review, today, December 17th, 2017, Amazon has the SanDisk 128GB microSDXC UHS-I (U3) card for Nintendo Switch for $66 versus the Samsung EVO Select 128GB MicroSDXC UHS-I (U3) card for $37. Both of these cards will work perfectly in the Nintendo Switch. The specifications for both cards are identical, 128GB, UHS-I (U3). Both of the cards met their 100MB/s read speed rating, however only the Samsung card met it's 90MB/s write speed rating while the SanDisk card only achieved 65MB/s.
I have been an Information Technology professional for over 30 years and a hobbyist before that. If you are interested in purchasing a 128GB MicroSDXC card for a Nintendo Switch (or other SDXC compatible device), this SanDisk "for Nintendo Switch" card is not the best card available. It is overpriced and underperforms when compared with the Samsung card. There is literally no reason to purchase this SanDisk card over the less expensive Samsung card. You get nothing extra with it. There is no magical extra compatibility with a Nintendo Switch. There is absolutely no benefit to be had over the less expensive Samsung card. Additionally, the 65MB/s write speed does not meet SanDisk's own specifications. For me the choice is clear, based on both price and performance, the Samsung EVO Select 128GB MicroSDXC UHS-I (U3) card wins hands down.
FYI: If the Samsung EVO Select 128GB MicroSDXC UHS-I (U3) card is out of stock and only available from 3rd party sellers, I recommend that you wait to purchase it directly from Amazon, or choose a lower capacity version of the card that Amazon does have in stock. Counterfeit SD cards are a thing and you are far more likely to get the genuine article when purchased directly from Amazon. Plus, Amazon usually has a better price than the 3rd party sellers.
Be careful here, I thought I could trust Amazon but looks like some bad merchants are getting bad products on the platform. I ordered a replacement and hopefully that one will be fine but if it's not I'm done buying this kind of product here, not worth the hassle.
This is just in my experience, since I've only had it for abut 6 weeks...
If I delete files to make room under 30gb, Everything is fine.
If I try to save past the 30gb point, it fails.
Conclusion: these are fake cards. Avoid.

This works fine, I've got Skyrim, Bayonetta 1 and 2, Sonic Mania, Lego Worlds...and that's just for now. Plenty of room, can't wait for Bayonetta 3.
Vielleicht gibt es günstigere - ich habe hier keine gefunden. Dieses sogenannten Pendandt ist für 'Prime-Mitglieder only' und daher außerhalb der Reichweite vieler. Wer eine günstigere kaufen will, darf das gerne tun, aber diese Karte funktioniert bisher tadellos.
Und man darf 100% sicher sein, dass die Switch damit so gut funktioniert, wie sie es nur kann - optimiert eben.
Insomma, con questo prodotto comprate una normale SD con un microscopico logo Switch e basta. Tra l'altro va notato che con la Switch funziona qualsiasi memoria micro SD, basta appurarsi che sia di buona qualità e almeno di classe U3. Non ha senso inoltre comprare memorie più veloci perché test hanno dimostrato che la Switch legge al massimo 90 Mb al secondo.
La velocità in scrittura è meno importante siccome giocando si effettuano moltissime operazioni di lettura e molte meno di scrittura. Per informazione dei giocatori più accaniti, i giochi girano più veloce dalla memoria interna, la micro SD di qualità è il secondo migliore strumento per giocare, la cartuccia è la più lenta in assoluto.
Di conseguenza, installate i giochi più pesanti sulla memoria interna e tutto il resto su SD.
Tornando al prodotto oggetto della questione, il mio consiglio è di evitare questa serie di micro SD a meno che non siate fan così sfegatati di Nintendo da volere a tutti i costi la memoria con la licenza ufficiale. A un prezzo inferiore si compra una Samsung Evo da 128 GB che ha il doppio della capacità ed è anche più veloce, cosa che ho verificato anche con il benchmark Crystal Disk Mark: Samsung MB mc128ga/AMZ scheda di memoria, 128 GB trasparente .
