How can I select a reliable microSD card for my Qubii?
In order to avoid potential risks caused by a low-quality, fake or counterfeit microSD card, Maktar has compiled some tips to help you purchase the right microSD card for you:
1. Choose MicroSD cards with write speeds greater than 10MB/sec
Qubii needs a minimum of 10MB/s of write speed to properly back up and transfer files. The read/write speed will determine how quickly your Qubii can store data on your card. While the Qubii supports as low as 10MB/s, we highly recommend selecting a microSD with 30MB/s write speed or greater. You can use the Qubii SD card testing tool to check the performance of your microSD card before storing data on it.
*Please Note: The Qubii SD card testing tool may produce results that differ from your SD card provider's manufacture label. Minor variations may be caused by slight deviations in the manufacturer's testing protocol.
2. Select a microSD card from well-known brand names, trusted companies and official sellers.
When shopping for a microSD card, buying a card from a well-known brand name, although slightly more expensive, will save you money in the long run. Brand name cards are more durable, last longer and are more reliable than the cheaper knock-off versions. You can also expect better performance and a longer lifespan in addition to faster read/write speeds. Two of the most popular microSD card brands are Sandisk and Samsung.
*Tip: Avoid microSD cards that are too cheap or sold under the market price, as these are likely fake. Their packaging may appear to have come from legitimate companies and may be labeled under familiar brand names, but these are often knock-offs and are not the same quality.
3. Buy microSD cards from authorized sellers like retail chains or reputable online stores.
Always be sure to order microSD cards from trusted sources. Normally an authorized seller will use trademark names under their listings and will provide better customer support when contacted. Also, when buying from a reseller such as Amazon, NewEgg, Walmart, etc., always make sure that the card is sold and shipped by the same company.
4. Choose microSD cards that have been certified by Maktar.
