Fast Data Transfer Speeds

The Samsung Essential microSDHC Memory Card offers a read speed of 24 megabytes per second (MB/s) and a write speed of 13 MB/s for optimal data transfer rates.* This means you'll spend less time waiting for photos to be written to the card and less time transferring your photos to your PC. Additionally, its Class 6 rating means this card can be used for full-HD (1080p) video recording.

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 Essential microSDHC 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.

Epoxy Molding Compound
Epoxy molding compound keeps SD 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.

I bought this for a family members Galaxy S2 phone. At the time it was the cheapest 8GB class 6 microsd available, and from a reputable flash chip/general manufacturer like Samsung, felt assured it was of good quality. I tested this briefly when I first got it, it claims it's rated at 24MBps/13MBps, but I never got it above 19Mbps/12Mbps. Fast enough for the S2 anyways.

This is probably the best micro sd memory card for my samsung galaxy s3. Reads fast and it gives my phone a better performance. Shipped fast and well packed with a mini case. I recommend this to anyone who wants to extend memory on their devices since this one is very affordable compared to the ones at best buy. Worth the money and very satisfied.

I got this card for about $5 and wondered if I would get a fake. Turns out it was real and even in samsung packaging. Great deal! Speed was correct with class 6 standards. Prolly not a good card for someone that runs an OS off of it (like android/windows on the hd2) as it is only a class 6 instead of 10 but you cant beat it for the price.

I've purchased several of these on eBay only to be disappointed that they were counterfeits. These here are the real deal and work flawlessly in our phones, PVR's, dashcams, etc. I very HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product.

This card did not arrive in a factory package instead it was in a plastic box in a plastic bag, when installing this card in a new Motorola Xoom it only said it had 7.40 gb of space instead of 8.0 gb of space not sure if it is genuine Samsung!

Claims are Up to 24 MB/s read speed and 13 MB/s write speed
What my test got so far is Read 17.20MB/s Writes 11.68 MB/s
Read seem to be off by a lot, but write speed isn't off by much.

Now i am just wondering if these claims are really marketing or does it really work?
Water Proof - Can survive in sea water over 24 hours
Shock Proof - can withstand being run over by a 1.6 ton vehicle
