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.
It's been a number of years since Samsung launched its current line of SD and microSD cards. Since then, the company has continued to deliver new memory cards with faster speeds and greater capacities. The latest addition to Samsung's lineup is the PRO Endurance. Available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities, this new microSD card is designed for consumers who use intensive monitoring applications such as surveillance and security cameras, body cameras and dash cams. The PRO Endurance offers industry-leading endurance with up to 43,800 hours (5 years) of continuous video recording. Also, thanks to its 90 MB/s read and 30 MB/s write speeds, it is the only high endurance card on the market that provides Full HD recording and 4K video support.
Like Samsung's other microSD cards, the PRO Endurance boasts 4-proof protection. This means that the card is guaranteed to survive up to 72 hours in seawater and endure operating temperatures from -25°C to 85°C and non-operating temperatures from -40°C to 85°C. Data stored on the card is also not affected by X-rays and can resist up to 15,000 gauss magnetic force - the equivalent of a high-field MRI scanner.
Needless to say, this is only a taste of what the PRO Endurance memory card has to offer. To give you an idea of what to expect, we'll take a closer look at Samsung's new microSD card and then see how well it performs. Does the PRO Endurance have what it takes? Keep reading as we find out.
