Fast Data Transfer Speeds

The Samsung Plus SDHC Memory Card offers a read speed of 24 megabytes per second (MB/s) and a write speed of 21 MB/s for optimal data transfer rates.* The card's Class 10 rating, the highest SDHC performance standard, ensures a quick response time from high-end cameras (such as DSLRs) when you're taking photos, and is especially ideal for recording full-HD video. Additionally, the read speed reduces your wait time when transferring photos to your PC.

Optimal Storage for Photos, Videos, and MP3 Files

With a capacity of 8 GB, the card can hold up to 2,000 photos (in 10-megapixel, superfine mode), 2 hours of HD video (1,920 by 1,080 pixels and 9 Mbps), or 140 hours of MP3 music (128 Kbps).*

Waterproof, Shockproof, and Magnet-Proof

The Samsung Plus SDHC Memory Card features the company's "3 Proof" technology to keep your photos and other important files safe. Thanks to an epoxy molding compound, the card is waterproof for up to 24 hours, even when exposed to seawater--ideal protection in the case of a water-related mishap. If you drop your digital device in the water and it's damaged beyond repair, your data will still be secure.

Waterproof construction
Epoxy molding compound keeps SDHC card
waterproof for up to 24 hours.

The card is also designed to withstand the weight of a 1.6-ton truck. Portable digital devices are often dropped or bumped, and this card's shockproof durability can survive such impacts. In addition, the card protects your data from magnetic forces common with home theater systems, and can resist a magnetic field of up to 10,000 gauss--equal to that of an MRI.

This is *by far* the prettiest memory card that I have ever laid eyes on, however, its looks do not make up for its lackluster performance. According to my CrystalDiskMark benchmarking software, this card does not meet the read/write speeds specified by Samsung. Additionally, for the price, SanDisk offers "Extreme" cards with a longer warranty and faster read/write speeds. I am a huge Samsung fan but I hoped for more.

If you are looking for a solid performing memory card and looks are important, this card is *very good* and I would easily recommend it over many other offerings! There are still better cards out there for the same price, however.

I purchased this item from Amazon, and it arrived quickly. When opening the package I noticed the card was stuck inside. It had been glued to the packaging! When I removed the card from the package, some of the paper from the package stuck to the card and will not come off. I feared it would come off over time inside of my camera, so I contacted Amazon and they sent me a replacement card right away. When the second card arrived, before even opening the package, I could see the label on the front of the card was bubbled up and peeling off. I had previously thought that the card was made from brushed metal like it says in the description, but it seems to be plastic with a shiny label on the front. I had purchased a 16GB Samsung Essential Class 6 SDHC card previously and have had no problems at all with that card, although it too is plastic.

It looks expensive. It is fast. I am using it on my point and shoot camera. Took a few video and tons of photos at 16mgpix resolution. No issue.

This card is excellent for these main reasons: the SD cards are fragile due to them being very thin. This metal unit gives much more rigidity to this thin card. Also, with the card being impervious to water and electro-static damage, it is a great deal. Excellent card. I now own 5 of these cards for my Nikon's and am very satisfied with them.

I bought this SDHC card in preparation for my trip to Asia. It is currently the main SD card I use in my camera and it has already taken over 1000 pictures. The sd card pops into the sd reader in my laptop and 400+ pictures transfer in 1-2 minutes. This card is fast! And it feels extremely durable and looks sleek. I will likely update this review in a year or so to update on how the SD card is holding out. Currently it's holding out great!
