microSDXC pros/cons?

Hello - I'm a longtime "Windows guy" and IT professional. I just purchased my first Surface Pro device (5th gen) and can't wait to get it in my hands later this week!

I got the i5 model with 8GB of RAM but only a 128GB SSD...

I assume I can add a microSDXC card to it but I'm curious if there are any limitations on size, or any tips experienced surface owners could share with me please?

thanks,
//Brew

Welcome to the SP club. I'm not sure if there's a capacity limit or not but I've been using a Samsung EVO 128gB in my 5th gen i5 8GB 256 since I got it and it's worked flawlessly.

Thanks for the quick reply.. that's basically what I expected.

I've been very happy with my SanDisk 120 GB for the last 2 1/2 years. I think Amazon still has the on sale.

Same I've got a SanDisk which has caused no problems with my SP5, although it was in my SP1 previously and did need reseating every now and then!
 
Hi, I'm currently using a 128Gb as secondary disk (where I moved my Netflix offline content and my Downloads folder), but I occasionally suffer from filesystem corruption.
I wonder if it's just a problem with mine microsd...

Best microSD Cards for Surface Go in 2018

Difference between SanDisk Ultra, Samsung Evo cards, and SanDisk Extreme.
SanDisk Ultra cards are UHS-1 (U1 rating) U1 indicates a minimum write speed of 10 10 MB/s
Samsung EVO cards are UHS-1 (U3 rating), U3 indicates a minimum write speed of 30 MB/s.
The SanDisk Extreme cards are UHS-1 (U3 rating).

Up to speeds are just that... up to … but not under all circumstances.
