    I could not agree with 'GreyFox7' more - the Samsung Evo Micro-SD Lineup are in my opinion - the Top of the Line Micro-SD cards for both reliability and speed. I bought my Surface Book Pro 4 almost 2 years ago and at the time of purchase I bought a 128GB Samsung Evo. It is still ticking without any hiccups.

    If time permits - let us know which card you went with & how it worked out for you.

    Thanks for this thread and the replies. I will be looking into this product when I go home for the summer.

    Make sure your device supports the 400GB. From what I've read - most of the more recent Samsung devices support 400GB even though they are rated at 256GB. That's what a liberal return policy is good for.

    I would be careful not to buy any card that sticks far out of the SB SD card slot. I bought a full size SD card and broke it within a month, as I carry my computer frequently. I now use a JetDrive Lite 130 256GB for Macbook Air which works fine, though it sometimes won't read. I guess that is a computer issue though if anyone knows differently, please let me know.
