If you're very serious, there's Swissbit, which still produces SLC cards. 8GB for $134. Do you remember FusionIO PCI-e cards? This is orders of magnitude above any other competitor that I have seen.
If you're very serious crazy :D
Interesting to know there's such a product out there though

Re: SanDisk - Will not RMA SDcards used in bootable devices.

Ask them to ask their parent company (Western Digital). If they cannot be used as bootable devices, then why did their parent company use them and sell them as bootable devices, both the SD card (preinstalled as a bootable device) and the UltraFit drives under the PiDrive branding. Specifically the...

Re: SanDisk - Will not RMA SDcards used in bootable devices.

As a side, register any Samsung cards as soon as you get them, they will not warranty (past the retailer's warranty as they are not involved) if not registered. They also have a similar 'write intensive' policy on their EVO PLUS cards (from website details and easy to find) The EVO/EVO+EVO Pro only...

Re: SanDisk - Will not RMA SDcards used in bootable devices.

More than likely SanDisk has a utility that can access areas hidden from the user and examine the even wear tables also they would most likely see the OS install. Because the boot of an OS requires so many reads and writes to memory for control values this is probably causing the excessive wear on ...

Re: SanDisk - Will not RMA SDcards used in bootable devices.

I've just got this bs from them regarding the ultra fit drives I've used and died on me. Did anyone find anything specific about using it as a boot disk in the UK T&C's?

Re: High Endurance SD card

I've been using Sandisk Ultrafit USB sticks as the main boot device and had a couple brick on me after a few months. They come with a 3 year warranty which I claimed on one successfully however Sandisk aren't honouring this now as its been used as a boot device and it's not designed for that?? Would...

Re: Minimal Kiosk Browser

I was testing raspbian lite + kweb3 on a Samsung 22" touchscreen (identified as "ILITEK ILITEK Multi-Touch" by evtest) this weekend and almost everything worked so far as expected (after installing some extra packages as mentioned in the docs). The only thing I'm still struggling with is the touch ...

might be a good idea to post the scripts you are using to call both programs so people can see what you are doing.
Thanks for the reply. They're the standard startup scripts that get installed with both packages. I can post them if needs be but they're out of the box as it were.

Hi I've set up a hotspot on my raspbian lite install however am having an issue with immediate authentication after boot. I get authentication failures until dnsmasq is started completely. Is there a way to delay hostapd to run after dnsmasq? They're both starting from init.d scripts. sudo /etc/init...
