So I'm willing to spend the same amount more or less.. Don't need anything more than 32gb or probably anything over 16. Of course the more the merrier.

Thanks in advance.

My Sandisk card was giving me grief just like a lot of other people. I took someone's advice and did a FULL format, not a 'Quick format' and also upgraded my rom to CM11 M3 Snapshot. Don't know which did the trick but my SanDisk Ultra 64 GB microSDXC Class 10 UHS-1 Memory Card has been doing just fine. No messages that say, "SD card has been removed" when it wasn't.
Amazon has them for just under $50. Good luck!

I have a Sandisk 32gb Class 10 UHC1 in my S4. I found that trying to get the phone to format the card failed, and therefore made the card unreadable. I put the card in my laptop and did a complete format. Not a quick format. Complete format, FAT32 file system. The card works flawlessly. I feel like people's card problems are related more to finicky formatting rather than manufacturing.

As for losing all your photos when a memory card dies, that is 100% user failure. There is absolutely no excuse for losing all your photos, because all your photos should not be permanently living on a single memory card in your phone and nowhere else. Your photos should be getting stored elsewhere for a permanent home. Cloud storage such as Dropbox and Google are all completely automated, integrated, and free. And you have the capacity of whatever hard drive space you have at home too. The only photos you should permanently lose in the case of a dead card or lost phone are the few recently taken ones that haven't been stored elsewhere.

As flash storage gets cheaper and more manufacturers are starting to make SD Cards, their profits become razor-thin and quality control is the first thing that goes out the window. Bottom line - it's a crap shoot. You can get a cheapo no-name brand card that will work great for years, or you can spend double for a brand name that will fail within a month.

The only thing you should worry about when buying an SD Card is how good the seller's customer support is. Amazon and NewEgg are usually great at handling returns/exchanges, whereas eBay may be cheaper, but you'll be SOL if you need to return the card.
