It’s been a while since we last updated you on the latest microSD card lineups. For 2023 there are a number of new or updated microSD product lines, including the latest SanDisk Extreme and SanDisk Ultra cards, the Samsung Pro Endurance, and the Transcend 300S series. As always, there are a variety of options and unless you know exactly what you are looking for the choices can be overwhelming. Here are some of the features and benefits of each.
The latest SanDisk Extreme microSDXC series offers very fast, very reliable performance that can handle 4K UHD video recording and playback with ease, as well as high-resolution photos. It has a read speed of up to 190 MB/s and a write speed of up to 130 MB/second. The card is also A2-rated, which means it is optimized for apps, providing faster app performance and load times. It’s ideal for action cameras, drones, smartphones, tablets, and game consoles that require high-performance storage. It is also waterproof, shockproof, temperature-proof, and X-ray-proof, so you can use it in harsh environments without worrying about data loss.
Samsung Pro Endurance
The Samsung Pro Endurance lineup offers durable microSD cards that are designed for continuous video recording and monitoring. With read/write speeds of 100/30 MB/s, Pro Endurance cards also have a U1 speed rating, for a sustained minimum video capture rate of 10 MB/s. Each card is rigorously tested, and are resistant to magnets and X-rays. They are also waterproof for up to 72 hours, and can withstand operating temperatures ranging from -25°C to 85°C. The Samsung Pro Endurance is a great choice for “always on” recording, such as dash cams, security cameras, body cams, and other devices that need long-lasting and reliable storage.
The Transcend 300S is a terrific microSD card that is perfect for mobile apps and handheld gaming systems. These high-performance cards are compliant with the latest A2 speed class, and boast outstanding read/write speeds for fast app launch time.
