Waterproof, Shockproof, and Magnet-Proof

The Samsung Essential 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.

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.

Although I have consistently purchased SanDisk cards over the years, I was intrigued by this new line of Samsung SDHC cards, and because the price was reasonable, decided to give one a try. So far I've been very pleased with the purchase. Yes, it looks as good in person as it does in the photos - it has a brushed aluminum front with a dark black back - but, more importantly, it has a very high quality feel to it, no doubt to the special manufacturing techniques that were used to make this "waterproof" and resistant to structural damage. From what I understand from Samsung's marketing material (see it above), it is a poured epoxy compound over Samsung NAND memory that makes the card able to stand up to higher levels of abuse. I've not tested that claim, nor do I hope I ever have to, but the card certainly feels much more physically solid in the hand than previous cards. The squeaks and sometimes flexible structural housings of other SDHC cards I've used are completely gone here.

Speed on the card appears to be roughly what Samsung claims, with read speeds being faster than write speeds, which is completely normal for cards of these types. I've used it on day-long shooting without problem, and I've formatted the card a number of times and used it in a Sony point and shoot camera, an HP Windows 7 computer, and a Mac Book Pro. No problems with any of them. The card seems to be working very well in all these pieces of equipment, and there are no problems to report at this time.

32Gb is the largest size supported by SDHC (if you want to go higher than 32Gb in the same physical card format, you have to go to SDXC).

This SDHC card is fantastic! It looks great, and is literally made of metal. I haven't tested the claimed durability but my understanding is that the components are permanently sealed in an epoxy polymer, so I have no doubt that it will stand up to anything. As far as speed goes, it's faster than my Nikon D3000 can even write to it.

I bought this SD card mainly for use for my Rebel T3i camera. I have a smaller capacity class 10 card made by PNY and the Samsung card works just as fine. On my camera, the Samsung card can hold up to about 1000 photos in RAW format (awesome!)

With respect to construction and quality, this Samsung card is great. It is supposedly shock-proof, water-proof and magnet-proof. I haven't tested that and don't intend to but there is a clear tactile difference in the quality of the brushed aluminum and a regular plastic shell SD case. You can probably easily snap a regular SD card with your fingers but it would take a bit more effort with the Samsung (this I have tried). The Samsung card can probably take some serious damage.

It also looks really great. Having the orange letter and brushed metal makes it really hard to visually lose compared to your standard black or dark blue SD card. I was a bit disappointed that my copy did not come with a case of any sort but I realize that it is totally unnecessary since the card rarely leaves the camera as I now never need to swap cards.

Well worth the extra expense to get a heavy duty memory card like this, especially if you tend to be a little careless and destructive like I am. No regrets so far. Highly recommended!

Let me start by stating that if you are looking for a cheaper 16GB SD Card then this is not the card for you to buy. I purchased this for the peace of mind of not having the card damaged or destroyed by accident. Also, it is a Class 10 card so it has great read/write speed for files. I purchased this for the 3DS since I wanted more space and you get 15GB of space, which is fantastic (you will never get the full amount for any SD Card). I never owned a Samsung SD Card before but now I really hope they release a 64GB card in black (16GB is the highest capacity in black even though they sell a 32GB card in silver).

I needed to replace my Canon S2 IS Camera that was very tired. I replaced it with a Canon S3 IS which is black. I’m glad I’m back to a black camera after using my Pentax for 45 years. Back to the memory. The memory cards of the past have been easy to lose and low in storage. My digital cameras in my past had limited size memory cards would work. I wanted memory cards with more space, harder to misplace, and low cost. On doing a scan on Amazon the Samsung 32 GB SDHC High Speed MB-SSBGA/US is listed at a very low price. Questions come to mind. Will it work in my S3 camera? On checking all over the internet I get yes/no/don’t know. I got Canon help on land line who said it would work. I talked to Samsung customer support and got little help only being told to contact Canon. The idea of the card being waterproof and you can drive a 1 ½ ton truck over it made me feel that it would stand up to my use. Only time will tell about that. The silver color face on the card makes it stand out in low light or when I don’t have my glasses on. The listed write speed is faster then the S3 write speed but the camera has no problem writing photos and video to the card. The memory chip comes on a hang down display card. I do not like the fact that a plastic holder is not supplied with this memory card. I know the card is heavy duty but it should have a plastic case for storage. On the bottom of the front display card is printed, “Memory For Life”. When I saw this first thing that came to mind was that the memory had a life time warranty, not so. In a very finely printed icon just above states the warranty is only 5 years. If the memory is go great why only 5 years and why not say it bigger printing?Read more ›
