Sandisk is one of the best in the game when it comes to SD cards and this product is no different. Had no problems registering it with my Nintendo Switch and if you look at the picture below, you can see it isn't a full 400GB of storage. Why is that?

Well after some reading, it turns out it isn't a fake nor is it a manufacturing error. It's actually the result of differing measures of data between the Switch and the SD manufacturer. The Switch measures data in what is sometimes known as "gibibytes" while SD card suppliers use "gigabytes" as the metric for measurement. Due to this, the available capacity on your Switch will not be the same as the number on the card.

I've had no problem using it. I inserted it into the back of my Switch, updated the system, and was easily detectable so it was very seamless.

Gotta love SanDisk :)
