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.
Last spring, Samsung launched a new line of advanced SD and microSD cards. Completely redesigned with bright, color-coded hues, these memory cards were available in PRO, EVO and Standard models for use in many different consumer electronic devices. Where the Standard model offered solid performance for mobile phones and compact digital cameras, the EVO's greater capacities and Ultra High Speed (UHS-I) Class 1 level performance made it an ideal choice for smart phones and tablets. With the PRO, Samsung upped the ante even further, offering faster read and write speeds for use with Full HD camcorders and DSLR cameras.
Following through on their promise to deliver next-generation memory cards with faster speeds and greater capacities, Samsung recently added two new models to its lineup. Along with a new and improved version of the PRO, the company introduced the EVO Plus. Available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities, the EVO Plus is equipped to meet the ever-increasing demands of smartphone, tablet, compact camera and Full HD camcorder users. This UHS-I Class 1 card has 80 MB/s read and 20 MB/s write speeds, making it excellent for video recording and playback in Full HD, quick file transfers, and fast loading of apps.
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. The EVO Plus is guaranteed to survive up to 72 hours in seawater and endure operating temperatures from -25°C to 85°C (-13°F to 185°F) and non-operating temperatures from -40°C to 85°C (-40°F to 185°F). Data stored in the card will not be affected by X-rays and can resist up to 15,000 gauss magnetic force - the equivalent of a high-field MRI scanner.
