Micro SD

I never thought I'd do this but Smash pulled it across the finish line. I'm going all digital. What's the biggest card you can get I don't trust those 512 GBs from China.
Welcome to Gamefaqs. They finally have an edit button.

an SD card. Those things are twice the size of a microSD card. Technology has come a long way

512GB is the biggest you can get. At this time.
Next is 400GB by SanDisk.

Just make sure its a trusted brand and you should be ok. SanDisk and Samsung are the most reliable.
256GB and 400GB are pretty expensive.
The $/GB price is the best at 128.

You could always, uh, stick a micro SD into a SD adapter, stick that into a CF adapter, stick that into a SATA adapter, and stick that into 3.5" cradle.

There you go. A micro SD that fits into a desktop hard drive slot.

I could have sworn SanDisk dropped the 512 GB card already. I checked again on Amazon.
It's those 3rd party "authorized" seller. So deceptive, this thing could easily mislead a lot of people.
Their Q&A replied regarding the Switch that their 512 card can only hold ~40GB LOL

I'm pretty sure the PNY one is the only 512 widely available.

But, of course, you guys already know the drill: only buy a SD card on Amazon, if it's "Ships from and sold by Amazon.com."
