    I want to buy a 64gb microSD card.

    I want to buy a good one, but obviously not pay for speed that will never be used.

    What is your guys opinion on which card to get?

    Will it matter for the Mavic?
    Will it significantly matter for transfer to my computer?
    Should I go for a different brand?

    The Mavic can only write at a max speed of 7.5MB/s. You'll cut down on file transfer times between your computer if you go with a faster memory card though. The brands you listed above are choices. You can find some others here.

    And always do your video/photo transfers by pulling the SD card out of the Mavic and using a card reader on your computer. The transfer times are substantially greater, and you won't waste an entire battery charge getting them there.

    I have the SanDisk Extreme Plus 64gb it works perfectly and whenever I do transfers I take it out and use a SD Card Adapter in my MacBook.

    I walked into Costco and saw they had a two pack of 32GB Sandisk extreme's on sale for $24

    I believe they were 10mbs... so plenty fast enough for the Mavic

    I am using one of these as I have used them in other devices and they have all been very reliable

    Samsung Memory 64GB Evo MicroSDXC UHS-I Grade 1 Class 10

    They are cheaper than the SanDisk Extreme Plus cards.
