Speed of a Class 10 memory card

SanDisk’s Extreme Pro microSDHC UHS-I is a Class 10 memory card, which says something about the card’s speed. The classification system was defined by the SD Card Association. This umbrella organization defines worldwide memory card standards. Class 10 is the highest class. In order to shoot Full HD videos, you need a minimum of Class 6. This is often not considered when purchasing a memory card, because you also have to pay more for a card with a higher speed. Yet, this is a very important detail. For example, when you have a smartphone that demands minimum Class 6, and you use a Class 4 memory card, your memory card will be the bottleneck and your videos will be a lot less fluid. With SanDisk’s Class 10 UHS-I memory card, you will never have to worry that your memory card will form the bottleneck.

Next to being Class 10, this memory card is also equipped with UHS-I, which stands for Ultra High Speed, to achieve even higher speeds. The classification system actually gives the minimum speeds; Class 10 stands for a minimum writing speed of 10 MB/s. UHS says more about the maximum speed. UHS-I cards deliver a maximum speed of 104 MB/s. The UHS speeds can only be achieved when you combine the memory card with an adaptor, so that the microSDHC is transformed into an SDHC memory card. This is ideal for taking 3D or Burst-Shooting photos with your digital camera, when it is really important that your memory card can write data quickly. You must consider that the device in which the memory card is used has to offer UHS support in order to achieve these exceptional speeds.

Temperature resistant card

S anDisk’s Extreme Pro microSDHC card has an extra advantage: the flash memory card is resistant under very high and very low temperatures. This means that when you are skiing, you can keep shooting photos with your cell phone. There is after all, nothing more annoying than when you have just arrived at your vacation destination, and you want to take some snapshots with your smartphone, and then your memory card stops working. The card can withstand temperatures from -25˚C up to 85˚C. If your robust smartphone should end up falling in the snow, than you do not have to worry that your memory card will stop working, is it has been tested as waterproof up to 72 hours. The card file can also take a fall. If something were to happen to the memory card, SanDisk offers a five-year guarantee on its entire assortment of microSDHC memory cards.
