The worst thing that can happen is if you record a great scene or take an amazing photo then you go to look at the footage and it is damaged or not correct. This can happen if you don’t have an SD card that can keep with your camera. This often happens with 4K recording, well you don’t have to worry about that with the Patriot LX Series 256GB MicroSD Card.
In our testing it performed right up to its advertised 90 MB/s transfer speeds. This not only means that you’ll have smooth recording, but also when you go to transfer files to your PC it is going to be pretty fast! Since this is a MicroSD card with an adapter it can work in a multitude of different devices. For example I use the MicroSD card in my GoPro and then install it in the adapter to use in my Sony a6300. The adapter is also good to have for transferring files as most laptops have an SD card slot.
The only thing that is a little weird about this MicroSD card is that it has a two year warranty. Most other SD and MicroSD cards we’ve reviewed have lifetime warranties. So only having a 2-year warranty is a bit of a let-down. Right now you can pick up this microSD card for $174.99 at our favorite online retailer. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Patriot LX Series 256GB MicroSD Card a 9 out of 10 score.
