Samsung Ups the Ante on SD Cards

A new line of SD cards isn’t exactly light-the-world-on-fire news, but Samsung thinks they have offerings that will manage to impress nonetheless. The new SD and Micro SD cards are part of the company’s High Speed and Plus Extreme Speed Series, and range from 4 GB to 32 GB in storage space. You can also get the cards in Class 4, 6, and 10 varieties. Class 10 SD cards, though more expensive, are important for those using DSLR cameras who like using burst mode or taking long exposure shots. Class 4 and 6 SD cards’ write speeds will still get the job done for regular HD pictures or video, without causing too much slowdown on your device. The line of SD cards features read speeds as high as 24 MB/sec and write speeds as high as 13 MB/Sec for the High Speed Line and 21 MB/Sec for the Plus Extreme Speed Line.

I don’t know what you do with your SD cards, but if you plan on submerging yours into the ocean or dropping a car on them, you’ll want to consider Samsung’s SD cards. All of the new SD cards are waterproof, shockproof, magnetproof, and can survive a force of a 3,200 pound vehicle. Not exactly the first thing I consider when buying an SD card, but it can’t hurt to have. The most expensive models in the line are the High Speed 32 GB SD card and Micro SD card, which come in at $90. The Plus Extreme Speed Line tops out at 16 GB for storage, for both SD and Micro SD cards.
