Top 10 Best Micro SD Card For Eufy Camera

If you need a Micro SD then don’t worry we present you the top 10 Best Micro SD Card For Eufy Camera in this article. A Micro SD Card ain’t always easy to pick due to having so many different choices, models, and UHS Type, that’s why we decided to make this list, so you don’t have to go through all that work and just need to pick one from the several options we provide!

There are 3 things you need to look for when thinking about what SD Card to purchase:

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

Size Capacity Recommended

The EUFY Camera, like most surveillance cameras, recommends 32Gb size due to compatibility, however, we and many others have tested up to 128Gb of size capacity and it worked perfectly fine with the added benefit of being able to record for far longer and not having to switch SD Cards as often in your Eufy Camera.

Write / Read Speed

The write and read speed essentially means how fast your SD Card is at saving the video file, how fast it is at transferring it from your SD Card into a laptop/desktop computer, and so on.

In hindsight, this may not seem like a very important feature but it is. Surveillance camera footage often ends up being several hours long (if not days!) and that makes the video file will be MASSIVE. With a slow SD Card, this can take up to a FULL day to transfer to a desktop depending on how massive your footage is.

The fastest SD card in the market right now are the type UHS-2 which are roughly 3x faster than the older ones UHS-1. The UHS-2 however, is quite a bit more expensive while the UHS-1 is far cheaper. If you can afford a UHS-2 then you should consider it since it’s a lifetime purchase and you won’t need to buy another one ever again.

Brand & Model Quality

Brand & model are important because some brands offer a lifetime warranty, others don’t, some brands have better quality support & architecture in their product while others aren’t quite as good, just like any other product, brand and model do matter.

All the brands in our article are tested & well known in the industry so you don’t need to bother yourself with that. Regarding the models, there’s a lot of different ones, some are faster than others, some don’t occupy as much space when saving the footage to the SD Card, some can record for longer, etc etc. There’s a wide variety of models and all the ones in the article are our personal suggestions based on what we’ve tested.

What is UHS-1?

UHS-I is a format for high-speed data transmission. It was developed with the intention of improving on the original UHS mode, which offered speeds up to 50 MB/s (80 Mbit/s). The new standard provides an approximate doubling in speed, now at 104 MBps (160MBps) and faster read and write times than previous standards.

What is UHS-2?

UHS-II is the latest specification in high speed data transmission standards for SD/SDHC cards. It has been designed with a higher bus bandwidth than that of UHS I and may allow speeds up to 312MBps or even faster as it develops. This newer standard also offers improved random performance, which should lead to reduced power consumption when compared with its predecessors.
