Samsung microSDHC Plus Series Review (MB-MPBGB)

The Samsung microSDHC Plus Series ships in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities and is designed to meet mainstream consumer applications including implementation in smartphones and tablets. The Plus Series from Samsung is distinguished from typical flash cards with its higher performance rating of 48MB/s for read activity and 13MB/s for write activity. At the same time, the Plus Series is more affordable than the higher-end flash cards such as Samsung's own Pro Series.

Samsung SDHC Plus Series Review

The Samsung SDHC Plus Series memory card slots into the performance category, wedged between value and enthusiast and is designed for DSLR cameras and full HD camcorders. Served up in capacities of 8GB, 16GB and 32GB, the Plus Series flash cards feature a blend of both solid performance and low pricing. At the lower two capacities, the Plus Series cards are roughly $1/GB, but when you move up to the full 32GB capacity that maxes out the SDHC format, the per-gigabyte cost drops to about 70 cents. Along with that, Samsung rates the Plus Series at figures as high as 48MB/s for read activity and 13MB/s for write activity.

Samsung SDXC Pro Series Review

The Samsung SDXC Pro Series is a memory card designed to enable photographers, videographers and consumer enthusiasts to capture, edit and manipulate ultra-high resolution imagery and HD video (including 3D video). The SDXC Pro Series flash card ships in capacities of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB, all of which feature a high-end performance spec. The Pro Series, in fact, is the top-of-the-line in Samsung's portfolio, and as such Samsung quotes transfers at up to 80MB/s for read activity and up to 40MB/s for write activity. This really comes in handy when cameras are processing captured content in-device, and it also obviously transitions into much more efficient migrations to workstations and editing on the card if necessary.

Samsung microSDXC Pro Series Review (MB-MGCGB)

The Samsung microSDXC Pro Series is a memory card engineered primarily with high-end smartphones and tablets in mind, and Samsung offers the microSD in capacities of 8GB, 16GB, 32GB or 64GB. As a member of the Samsung Pro Series (which also features a standard SD card), this flash card carries a more robust performance spec than typical flash cards - it comes rated at 70MB/s for read activity and 20MB/s for write activity. That read transfer rate means that users browsing media files on their tablets and smartphones won't be waiting for long load times, and when they write data over, that process will also have a boost over standard cards. The Pro Series is also rated with the UHS Speed Class 1 (U1) and Class 10 video recording ratings that signify high speed data transfers capable of handling HD content including Full HD video at 1080p.

Lexar Professional 600x SDXC UHS-I Review

The Lexar Professional 600x SDXC UHS-I is the company's strongest performing SDXC memory card that ships in capacities of 64GB, 128GB or 256GB and is designed for high-end content capturing via DSLRs, HD camcorders or even 3D cameras. That 256GB capacity point is a drastic increase doubling offerings comparables provide that top off at 128GB, sometimes even 64GB. Performance is another main draw and is accelerated to quoted transfer rates of 90MB/s read and 45MB/s write - and Lexar says the read activity spec is a guaranteed minimum sustained transfer rate (of course depending on the host system). These speeds are extremely significant to photographers as reduced transfer times and smoother in-camera operations lead to more shots snapped and more time to edit them, and with that, likely higher quality work. Lexar also includes a software code for users to download Lexar Image Rescue 4, which is image recovery software enabling users to recover lost or deleted photos or videos.

SanDisk Extreme microSDXC UHS-I Review

The SanDisk Extreme microSDXC UHS-I is a memory card designed for tablets, smartphones and cameras that ships in capacities of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB and differentiates itself from other cards on the market with its robust performance. SanDisk quotes transfer rates at 80MB/s for read activity and 50MB/s for write activity. These performance specs along with the UHS Speed Class 1 (U1) and Class 10 video recording ratings optimize the Extreme microSDXC UHS-I to handle anything from documents and images to Full HD video at 1080p. This is particularly significant for photographers and video/audio editors who need to capture or edit loads of content, though in typical consumer use cases the card will undoubtedly drastically cut down on transfer time as well.
