Top 10 Best Micro SD Card For Arlo Ultra 2 Camera

Choosing the best Micro SD Card for your camera can be difficult because there are so many to choose from, so many different brands and models, and it can get a little confusing. That’s where we come in; we’ll tell you our top 10 best Micro SD Card for Arlo Ultra 2 Camera.

To start, there are a few things to consider when selecting an SD Card, such as:

  • Size capacity
  • Write/Read Speed
  • Brand and Model Quality

Size Capacity Recommended

We recommend a minimum memory of 32GB for the Arlo Ultra 2 sensor. Ideally, you want between 64GB and 256GB. The size will allow your camera to record for longer periods of time as well as save said recordings; obviously, a longer recording will take up more room, so if you don’t want to have to delete recordings often, get an SSD with as much storage capacity as possible.

Write / Read Speed

The speed will influence the time it takes for the file to move in and out of the SD Card; this is critical because if you want to transfer the recording to your machine or a USB, you will need high speeds because the files are often incredibly large in scale.

There are also two types of SD Cards with different speeds, the older and slower but also less expensive UHS-1 SD Cards and the newer and much faster but also more expensive UHS-2 SD Cards, and we can provide you with enough options for both.

Brand & Model Quality

This is significant since good brands and models often have fewer problems in the long term (5+ years) and will sometimes last a lifetime without issues, as well as being compatible with more cameras if you do swap cameras.

All of the choices we will share with you in this article are high-quality models and labels, so you don’t have to think about that.

Top 5 UHS-1 Best Micro SD Card For Arlo Ultra 2 Camera

PNY Pro Elite UHS-I95 MB/s90 MB/s64Gb to 512Gb
Kingston Canvas React UHS-I100 MB/s80 MB/s16Gb to 512Gb

These are less expensive, but much slower than UHS-2. Again, we recommend a minimum of 32GB and a maximum space of between 64GB and 256GB for the Arlo Ultra 2.

Top 5 UHS-2 Micro SD Cards

SanDisk Extreme PRO UHS-II275 MB/s100 MB/s128Gb
Lexar Professional 1800x UHS-II270 MB/s250 MB/s64Gb to 128Gb

These are roughly three times faster than UHS-1 but still quite a bit more expensive, but well worth it if you have the money.

What is UHS-1?

UHS-I (Ultra High Speed – first generation) is a high throughput interface for nonvolatile memory cards. It has been developed to provide input/output performance of at least 100MB per second, and supports bus mastering by host processors.

UHS operates in compliance with the USB Mass Storage Class (MSC), Command Set Level A specification that defines logical and physical interfaces for MSC devices as well as data protection mechanisms against defects or transient errors on media.

What is UHS-2?

UHS-II (Ultra High Speed – second generation) is a high throughput interface for nonvolatile memory cards. UHS-I and UHS-II are separate, but compatible standards that can be used together to provide input/output performance of at least 250MB per second or more when recording data on both card sides concurrently in video mode with simultaneous read from the two card channels.

The bus master capability offered by USB enables hot swapping without disrupting continuous operation during burst transfers which gives it an edge over other interfaces such as eSATA or IEEE 1394b Serial Bus Protocol (commonly known as FireWire).
