Samsung 256GB EVO Plus UHS-I microSDXC Memory Card with SD Adapter
Samsung 256GB EVO Plus UHS-I microSDXC Memory Card is a strong addition to Samsung’s repertoire of microSD cards. In addtion to its novelty as one of the few 256GB microSD cards on the market, the new EVO Plus exhibits a huge improvement in performance compared to the previous model; in terms of sequential transfers, the EVO Plus 256GB has write speeds that outpace Samsung’s performance card (i.e., PRO Plus). In the context of the market as a whole, there aren’t many microSD cards that can compete with the EVO Plus. Media professionals and enthusiasts would likely have a hard time finding a better option.
Samsung 256GB EVO+ MicroSD card takes advantage of the company’s advanced 48-cell layer V-NAND technology. This enables both higher capacity and greater performance. Typically, smartphone and tablet users will want a MicroSD card capable of delivering strong random 4K read/write performance. This then makes the EVO+ 256GB the perfect choice for such applications. On the flip side, content creators using high quality 4K cameras want big sequential write speeds and again this is what the EVO+ 256GB delivers.
Samsung EVO plus cards are great option for action cameras as well. Not all microSDXC cards are fast enough for the high-end video modes of the latest GoPro cameras (GoPro Hero 8 black for example), and using a card that’s too slow can lead to unstable and unexpected behavior such as video recording stopping unexpectedly or error messages. Specifically, you want SD cards that have fast sequential write speeds, which is the spec that’s relevant to recording video or using the burst photo modes on GoPros
Worth noting is that while the previous EVO+ card was a U1 classified storage device, the new EVO+ is rated U3. So what does this mean? Both U1 and U3 are the two Ultra High Speed classes for modern SD cards, and the rating is determined by minimum performance. U1 cards will provide write speeds of at least 10 MB/s while U3 cards are good for a minimum of 30 MB/s. Typically U1 cards have been designed for 1080p video recording, while U3 is required for 4K.
As one of the fastest and largest-capacity microSD cards available, the EVO Plus is a compelling option for serious users. Samsung designed this card with an emphasis on durability and backs it with a limited lifetime warranty.
