File sizes and big data keep growing bigger and bigger, which means there is a bigger demand for increased storage capacities. If your hard drive isn’t large enough, or you need a high-capacity MicroSD card for 4K video content, the best option is Samsung EVO Plus.
This particular EVO media card comes in capacities ranging from 32GB to 512GB. It has superfast read and write speeds and is backed by 4-proof protection, which ensures that data is kept safe against extreme temperatures, water, and harsh conditions in general. It’s even magnet- and X-ray-proof! The certifications include FCC / CE / VCCI / RCM.
What kinds of speeds can you expect? It reads up to 100 MB/s with a UHS-1 interface and writes 90 MB/s. Samsung ships out the card with its special microSD adapter. While you can use just about any other adapter, top performance can only be achieved using the one shipped with the Samsung EVO Plus.
The environmental specs include operating voltage of 2.7~3.6V, operating temperature of -25 C to 85 C (-13 F to 185 F), and storage temperature of -40 C to 85 C (-40 to 185 F). Its interface is UHS-I, which is compatible with HS.
Samsung EVO Plus for Other Devices
It doesn’t just work with computers. You can use the EVO Plus in any device that meets the chip’s specifications: UHS-1, Grade 3, and Class 10. Class 10 refers to the guarantee of the data transfer speed that it will be 10 MB/s.
As mentioned above, some people – particularly photographers – need something to store their 4K video content on, and this chip is a good choice. Of course, use it on tablets and gaming consoles or in any compatible smartphone.
Unfortunately, there are scams on the internet, so unless you buy directly from Samsung’s site itself, know what to look for to ensure that you receive the authentic card. A genuine Samsung EVO Plus will have the “Samsung” logo stamped neatly on the back, as well as stamping that includes details such as the lot number. Also, an authentic card will have a white edge. If you are still unsure, do a reading/writing test with it. If the results are under what is guaranteed, you likely have a fake.
Just use caution when ordering online, like you would with anything else. The genuine Samsung EVO Plus is pretty affordable anyway, regardless of which capacity you choose. Remember that it should come with its adapter.
