Dash Cam 101 - Guide to SD Cards & Our Recommendations - Avoid Sandisk Ultra!

Dash cameras put more wear and tear on SD cards so you need to pick something more durable. We show you what matters. Aug 24, 2017 Transcend // High Endurance cards do NOT work with the F770. We suggest buying Thinkware's brand or the Transcend 400X cards if you want to save money at the cost of lower reliability and no warranty. August 1, 2017 Changed the budget recommendation to Transcend 400X. Changed the top pick alternative to the Sandisk High Endurance. July 9, 2017: Just purchased the 64GB Sandisk High Endurance for testing. Reviews and reports on the Sandisk High Endurance card have been much stronger compared to Lexar's High Endurance offering. May 22, 2017 Due to increased failures with the Lexar 633X cards we will be removing our recommendation. - - - - TO LEARN MORE Read our article: https://ift.tt/2bnrheZ Please note, we earn a commission from the retailers we link below. Since Jan 2017 we have purchased all dash cameras we review and we do not have paid relationships with manufacturers. We only recommend products after hours of research, hands-on testing and analysis. - - - - OUR SD CARD PICKS Top Pick - Transcend High Endurance We recommend the Transcend as it's the most affordable MLC card. It's optimized for use in dash cams and has error correction codes to help prevent corruption to your saved videos. DOES NOT WORK WITH THINKWARE. Amazon USA: http://amzn.to/2s2JDWo Amazon UK: http://amzn.to/2hFJnLV Sandisk High Endurance - Alternative to Transcend Sandisk has better reviews than the Lexar High Endurance. Lexar is also exiting the market. Sandisk also has great distribution around the world, lower price and is our pick should you not find the Transcend card. DOES NOT WORK WITH THINKWARE. Amazon USA: http://amzn.to/2tTUoeo Amazon CAD: http://amzn.to/2f3ts9J Amazon UK: http://amzn.to/2f2YdeT Budget Pick: We now recommend Transcend's 400X even though you lose the warranty when used in dash cameras. The 400X is recommended by a number of manufacturers we trust including Vicovation & Street Guardian - both whose cameras are designed for hot weather. The 400X has a better history of reviews compared to other alternatives. It also has error correction codes we think contribute to its great durability. We could not find a good alternative with a warranty that had a history of use with dash cameras (Samsung voids warranty).

You’ll be able to swap your cards out and keep recording without worrying that you’ll overwrite important footage. As well you’ll be protected in case your current card has any problems. - - - - OTHER LINKS: If you want to learn more about the different memory types (SLC, TLC, MLC), Linus from Techquickie has a great video on the technical details: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9mbZUI0J3A - - - - PHOTO CREDIT Exposed NAND photo at 1:06 is by Andrew Huang of Bunnie:Studios https://ift.tt/1xRnf2h It's licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. http://bit.ly/2a0jBsX - - - To see what we are up to and what's coming please check our Facebook page as it's the only place we post behind the scene stuff like photos and thoughts about other cameras. https://ift.tt/2PnN3hA Don't forget to visit our website to find more quality content in a written manner.
