It is interesting to see that the Vaxis option is about the same price as other leading brands, and there are a lot of other options that are actually cheaper. It could be a hard sell for Vaxis as they are a brand that has no history of selling memory cards. In saying that, the cards are bring made by Exascend who also makes the Z CAM cards. Exascend is a Taiwanese company and they have been around since 2014.
