Price at time of Review: $99.99 MSRP


Great performance, Lots of capacity, Easy to plug in and start using


Still a bit pricey, but not outside the realm of reason either

Features and Specifications

The biggest feature of the new Evo Plus is the read and write speeds. The practical application is shown in transferring a 4k video file.

The rest of the specs give detailed info most people won’t need, but the speed class is important for those looking at shooting 4k video. I should point out that nice, 10 year warranty though!

1) 1GB=1,000,000,000 bytes. Actual usable storage capacity may vary. User capacity measured with SD Formatter 3.1 tool with FAT file system. 2) Performance results are based on internal testing conditions. Transfer speeds may vary by host device. 3) Operating temperatures of -25°C to 85°C (-13°F to 185°F), non-operating temperatures of -40°C to 85°C (-40°F to 185°F). Withstands standard airport x-ray machines (Up to 50 Roentgen) and the magnetic field equivalent of a high-field MRI scanner (Up to 15,000 gauss). 4) Available only for limited usage application. List of applicable usage may be updated from time to time. Not available for Black Box, CCTV recording and other write-intensive applications.

Finally, I wanted to include the screenshot of the breakdown of memory card classes. This helps in understanding why one SD card might cost more than another. A U1 might work for 4k, but higher quality could cause some issues in the capture, where a U3 should really cover the recording needs well.
