Look elsewhere for reliability - First one failed, newegg was kind enough to replace - second one failed!
Pros: NewEgg was great as always. They exchanged the first unit for a new card. Hopefully they will be as generous on the second go . . .
Cons: Intended to use in a single board computer (Pine64), to ensure the card is good I ran H2TestW.
First card: First card failed midway through the write phase of the first test (about 8GB in). Suddenly card would only see a fraction of the usable space.
Second card also failed. See "Other" section for full writeup on second card.
Always test your cards before relying on them!
Other Thoughts: Tested with Transcend RDF8 Card Reader in Windows (USB3.0 Rated for 130/95MB/s)
Everything written below relates to the second card. (The first card failed on a single run of H2TestW (Read/Write Integrity Check).)
------ Reliability Testing: ------
From H2TestW's test patterns: - Write files 1GB in size until card is full. - Read back each file checking for read errors / confirming expected bit pattern.
Speed results (unknown queue depth - this program is used to test data integrity): Write Speed Avg: 13.3MB/S Read Speed Avg: 72MB/S
Tried running CrystalMark on the second card but it kept crapping out midway through (requires reformat and only shows ~240MB).
Crystal Mark Experience (Again this is the SECOND card!) - Run H2Test2w (one read/write pass) -> OK - Run CrystalMark - card errrors and requires reformat. - Format card only shows ~240MB - Manually reformat card again back to full 14GB - Run crystalmark again, same card failure and "double" format required to get back full capacity. - Worried, I run H2testw a second time - H2testw fails when reading back the written data:
"Error reading file 'L:\1.h2w', offset 0x5800000. (The wrong diskette is in the drive. Insert Code 34)
It seems with the lower cost memory in SD cards every manufacturer is bound to have quality control issues. PNY's new line isn't looking good at the moment.
Run H2TestW or a similar utility to test the card for read/write errors - preferable taking multiple passes.

This reviewer reports that his/her technical understanding of this type of product is and has owned this product 1 week to 1 month.
Cons: Installed in my Moto G4 phone to use as addition storage (it has option to merge with internal memory and encrypt it, or as separate storage that's readable by card readers). Phone reports as being a slow device. I thought all UHS-i U1 were created equal... I guess some are created more equal than others.
Other Thoughts: If you have a newer phone like mine, DON'T buy this memory card. as It may be substandard.

Pros: Nothing. I lost 160 GB of data when it bricked.
Cons: I lost 160 GB of data when it bricked.
Other Thoughts: The only saving grace was Newegg's response. They fully refunded the purchase in a timely manner. I have fault with the manufacturer, not Newegg. I have to live with the lost data. Ask yourself if you can live with losing the data before you delete the originals.....
