Samsung Electronics has been a leader in the electronics industry for more than 30 years. Since the introduction of their first television in 1970, this Korean company has grown to become one of the world's leading electronics manufacturers, offering everything from tiny semiconductors to large home appliances. Samsung is no stranger to the storage industry either. Along with an assortment of DVD and Blu-ray Disc drives, the company offers both hard drive and flash based storage solutions for the portable and desktop computer markets.
This past spring, Samsung launched its new line of advanced SD and microSD cards. Completely redesigned with bright, color-coded hues, these memory cards are available in PRO, EVO and Standard models for use in many different consumer electronic devices. Where the Standard model offers solid performance for mobile phones and compact digital camera, the EVO is ideal for smart phones and tablets. Boasting Ultra High Speed (UHS-I) Class 10, Grade 1 level performance, the EVO is able to read at speeds as high as 48 MB/s. Samsung's PRO SD and microSD cards offer even greater read and write speeds for use with full HD camcorders and DSLR cameras.
To ensure the reliability of Samsung's new memory cards, the company has designed them to be waterproof, temperature proof, X-ray proof and magnet proof, allowing them to withstand some of the harshest conditions. All three models are guaranteed to survive up to 24 hours in seawater and endure operating temperatures from -13°F to 185°F and non-operating temperatures from- 40°F to 185°F (-25°C to 85°C and -40°C to 85°C, respectively). Data in the cards will not be affected by the X-rays and can resist up to 15,000 gauss magnetic force. Additionally, the SD cards can withstand the force of a 1.9 ton vehicle.
