Keep in mind that there's a point of diminishing returns when it comes to SD card speeds. The Steam Deck only supports Class 1 of the UHS (Ultra High Speed) specification. UHS class 3 cards are faster, but unless you are going to use them elsewhere or get a great deal on one, it might not be cost effective to purchase one to use in the Steam Deck.

I only mention this, becuase I'd hate to see someone spend a premium price for a UHS 3 SD card because of great benchmark results that won't be achieved in the Steam Deck.

Was thinking the same, can be a trap for some people to buy something which is in general good but oversized to the actual need.

After seeing the iFixit teardown of the Deck and how easily they exchanged the SSD or the eMMC on the 64GB Version I might try to change it. But still am microSD would also be handy.

I assume most people on this forum are not from the Netherlands, but I got a 512Gb (UHS Class 3) SD card for €59.95 last week. (y) I use a Dutch price-watching website, and €60,- was my alert number :) Basically all Class 1 cards are the same price, so I figured, why not.
