I'm looking to buy a 64gb SD card for my mavic. With all the options out there I wanted to know if any were better then any others.

I think you will find that the sandisk extreme is the most widely used sd card.
I think the main reason being its a lot easier to obtain than some of the others that are suitable

Hi Koia Koia, I use a SanDisk Extreme PLUS 64GB micro SDXC UHS-I/U3 Card.  It's very fast and works extremely well with my MPP.  I got mine at Best Buy for $21.00.  
I wanted to get a 128GB, however I checked with DJI support and they informed me that the Mavic Pro Platinum will only take 68GB....  It will not take anything higher.

Hi Koia, just for the specs reference, we suggest using SD card with Class 10/UHS-1 and above and writing speed equal or higher than 60Mbps. Please kindly choose original SD card from the SD card company, which can ensure the full test of its stability and compatibility.

Yup!! That's the deal I got too!

I was worried that the Ultra might not work. I haven't had a chance to try it yet. I'm glad to hear it does work.

128GB Samsung evo card I got off amazon for $44. says does up to 85MB/Sec and using my usb 3.0 reader I found writing speeds are sustainable at 55MB/Sec and reading about the same.  I even verified it as 128GB.  Shocked.

I also have a 64GB sandisk card that in my reader does 70MB/sec writing sustained and peaks up to 81MB/sec sustained reading

And the included 16GB sandisk card...

Try to get something like the SanDisk Extreme U3 (the letter U with a 3 inside it).
Don't be blinded by the astronomic read speeds on SD cards, it's the write speed that matters and I'd recommend a minimum write speed of 30 MB/s (megabytes per second), if you want to record 4K video clips.

Ended up with a Sandisk Extreme Pro 64gb.  The temp proof shock proof x-ray proof stuff seemed of some value.  Probably keep my eye out for some cheap extras just in case but I'm thinking 64 gb out to be plenty.

Im confused by this picture.  That's some impressive modification.  What's your flight time like with all that extra weight?

Sandisk extreme pro A1 U3 and Sandisk extreme U3. Use the pro when setting out to film 4K or 1080p @ 60p as the read/write speed is quicker though the non pro is good enough.

The ones that came with the mavic are surprisingly pretty good, I've got a whole heap of Sandisk sd cards that I use for mavic+ audio recorders and I've never had a problem recording in 4K.
