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 two 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 EVO Plus. Available in 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities, this updated version of the popular EVO+ gives smartphone, tablet and camera users the capacity they need to store hours of 4K UHD video and thousands of high-resolution photos. The EVO Plus is also UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) rated and is capable of read and write speeds of up to 100 MB/s and 90 MB/s, respectively.
Like Samsung's other microSD cards, the EVO Plus 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. If that's not enough, Samsung backs the EVO Plus with a 10-year limited warranty.
Needless to say, this is only a taste of what the EVO Plus memory card has to offer. To give you an idea of what to expect, we'll take a closer look at Samsung's new microSDXC card and then see how well it performs. Does the EVO Plus have what it takes? Keep reading as we find out.
