Samsung PRO Plus MicroSD Memory Card Review

Announced earlier this month alongside the EVO Plus line, the Samsung PRO Plus microSD cards are the company’s latest enthusiast offering designed for levels of high end digital imaging and mobile devices. The previous PRO model we reviewed showed bar setting performance at a great price, so it’s unsurprising to see an upgraded release almost exactly a year later. That being said, the new PRO Plus line features a slight increase in read and write speeds quoted at 95MB/s and 90MB/s respectively (compared to the previous 90MB/s and 80MB/s), which satisfies both UHS-I Speed Class 3 (U3) and Class 10 performance levels (the previous version only supported Class 1). The PRO Plus line also come in capacities of 64GB and 32GB, with the 128GB model to be released at a later date, which is a pretty big boost in storage.
