I've personally used several Team products including a class 10 microSD card. Been about 2 years and it's still going strong and fast as heck.

I will take firebirdude's comment and buy one of these, my biggest fear was speed. Thanks for the comment

does anyone have any actual speed tests? USB/480 will move at up to 39MB/sec, which typically outstrips any usb flash drive. Claiming "USB3" on a flash drive typically means it connects and identifies as 3.0 but that doesn't mean it's any faster than any other flash drive. (racing tires on a VW bug doesn't make it go faster)

@firebirdude: I just had one of the Team micro SD cards (32 gb class 10) die on me after 2 years, but I have had some other Team micro SD hang in there- so I can't be completely negative either. Bottom line is if the stuff is important then back it up- nothing is perfect. I would probably take a chance on this- this would be nice to load some movies on for an Android tablet or a TV. I use a 64gb drive (Transcend) on a Visio TV and it works great in that capacity.

@virtual1one: Good point. The speed of the memory chips and memory controller play a part. I guess you could assume though that since it is USB 3.0 it should have newer chips and controllers than in the older USB 2.0 counterparts- but your right in saying if you put those same chips in a USB 2.0, it would probably have the same throughput since it is doubtful that these chips will even saturate the USB 2.0 theoretical bus.

@hallmike: The link you put up is for 32 GB not 64 GB like the original post
