    As a heads up to anyone else - I just got mine in the mail and am setting it up now. Even though the window pops up on the phone to change media storage to the card, you still need to go into Windows Media Player on your pc and "end sync relationship" with your phone and then "set up sync" with the sd card. Otherwise, it will just sync to your phone again...as I just found out....derp...
    Thanks for the tip. Now I just need my Yellow 1520 processed and shipped from AT&T! The delay is killing me....

    Another tip - if you do the 320 bit rate hack from the post stuck in the Windows Phone 8 thread, make sure before you sync stuff to the card that you go into the card's properties in windows media player and move the dial to 320 again.

    I had to delete and resync all over again, and since it was my second time already, I then ran into some issues where only some stuff synced and other songs were missing despite wmp saying they were already on the phone.

    luckily, I went back and deleted everything off the card again, restarted phone and PC, and synced again and now everything seems to be working fine.

    Are the movies all encoded the same? That's definitely odd. I have 19 movies on mine and they all play fine.

    I'm considering this transcend 64GB too, but that "up to 45MB/s" seams to be a creative marketing tricks. If I'm not mistaking it's rated as 25MB/s write speed. If you click on the product pictures, on the left side of your Amazon link, there is a picture of a test result with CrystalDiskMark II, and it's showing 22MB/s as actual write speed.

    The 22MB/s write speed may still saturate the buss speed of Nokia 1025, but I would like to hear some feedbacks before pulling the trigger on this card.

    Anybody have a few days experience of shutter-free HD-video recording with this card?

    I replaced my Sandisk Ultra 64Gb with this Transcend 64GB microsd. The real difference is write speed really 10Mb on Sandisk Ultra and 19 Mb on Transcend. My Sandisk was having an issue of recording videos onto my phone (lots of stutter for no good reason). By swapping this card out, I was able to record videos flawlessly on the Transcend card.

    Samsung - Pro 64GB microSDHC Memory Card | Model: MB-MGCGBA/AM | SKU: 2214084 | $59.99

    Just throwing this out there as an alternative for some who are still in the market for a MicroSD card. Best Buy has it for $59.99 right now. Boasts 70/20 for read/write speeds.

    This is the card I just bought. Can't really evaluate it for Lumia 1520 but I have not had any issues with it in my Windows tablet when playing 4Gb video files. Overall it seems like the Review for this card is better than for the Sandisk ultra, and the Write speed should not matter much in practice as there should be no way for us to really need a higher speed for the camera. It is after all not possible top burst shoot high res pics with a phone... The read speed is probably more significant for us when used as a storage expansion and you then get really good numbers with this card. You otherwise have to pay much more for the Extreme plus to reach the same read speeds.

    Well, maybe not for taking pictures, but faster write speeds should help out when recording 1080p/30fps, which is where people are saying the SanDisk Ultra's are causing stuttering. I've noticed it myself with my SanDisk Ultra and while this card seems to work better (I haven't had an opportunity to record for longer than 90 seconds), I've still had some stutter during fast movement (sat in my office chair, hit record, and spun around at a moderate speed).

    I concur about taking pictures on the Ultra card. For pictures, it is fast enough and I never had any issues with it. With 1080p any frame recording is where I come across with all types of stuttering issues. I thought the card was bad so I got a replacement from Sandisk. The replacement card behaved EXACTLY the same as my original card and that is when I conclude that the card is the root cause of the issue. The funny thing is my class 4 card stutters the same way as my class 10 sandisk when it comes to recording 1080p.

    Since the swapped the card to Trenscend I haven't had an issue any more. I think it has to be something with the write speed on the card itself since the read speed is over 30Mb/s.

    In that case, it is because the Sandisk card sucks and have other issues and not because it is too slow for video while it works for pictures. Shooting video has a lower write speed requirement than taking still pictures, particularly if you shoot high res photos and use the RAW support in the camera. 10 Mbytes per second should cover any requirements you might have for video even if shooting 1080p. I just recorded a short clip on my Samsung card and it looked fine to me, including when I was turning around much faster than would be reasonable in a real video. Some further reading:

    The Samsung card has a 20MB write speed, though, not 10MB, like the Sandisk Ultra. Have you tried recording 1080p video with a Sandisk Ultra on a L1520?

    Edit: And it's not just me reporting this. Others have had the same issue with the Sandisk Ultra, so it wasn't just my particular card.

    I have that card and have had numerous issues. I'll list them. Currently using a Sandisk 32GB SDHC Class 6 and it runs much better.

    Issues with 64GB:
    Deletes song tags
    Duplicates songs
    Stutters videos
    Deletes maps

    What is that card ? - do you mean that Sandisck Ultra (class 10) is worse than Sandisk class 6 card ?

    so your saying your 32gb class 6 takes stutterless 1080p video? I call shenanigans :P

    Yeah I posted these issues in the thread for 1520 bugs sticky. Someone recommended buying a class 6 card because it reads better with the lumias so I did and so far no problems. I actually have tested the 64gb on 2 differen 1520s as well and both got the same errors.

    Honestly, this does not make any sense in my mind :) ... you might just have a bad 64 Gb microSD card ... in a case of memory, faster is always better, but it does not give you any advantage to use class 10 card if class 6 is enough ...

    I have Sandisk Ultra class 10 card (u-1). It works, but I think that Sandisk extreme Plus would be better (read: 80 Mb. and write: 50 Mb) .... and a main reason for that is writing (saving) photos and videos. The both are fast enough to read ....
