Samsung 32GB Plus Class6 MicroSD (Better than Sandisk Class 10) £15.18 @ Amazon

Posted 20th Mar 2013
After reading several silly deals today, and needing a good reliable card for my camera, came across this.

Why better than Sandisk?
Benchmarks show it to be quicker than the £18 Sandisk Class10 posted earlier in both read and importantly write, and of course doesn't have the famous SanDisk death issues.

There is a newer Class10 version for 19.99 if you really need the most speed, not sure how much faster it really is though?

also:
uk.camelcamelcamel.com/Sam…A9W
confirms this is lowest price ever.

Sold by Amazon, not marketplace.

Speeds given by user msciazko (similar on Amazon reviews):

USB3.0
Sequential Read : 89.101 MB/s
Sequential Write : 21.525 MB/s

USB2.0:
Sequential Read : 19.801 MB/s
Sequential Write : 16.689 MB/s

thanks, guess that makes it really "Class 20"

Class 6 means *minimum* 6MB/s write.
and don't blame us if that's all you get (very likely to be much quicker, please see comments).

Tested mine received today, works well in camera and I can copy a 1GB ISO to it in exactly 1 minute (USB2 card reader), making it about 16MBs write i think (perhaps higher but limited by USB). great!

"In stock but may require up to 2 additional days to deliver."

Can still be ordered at even lower price now but says 1-3 months wait for Frustration Free version. price gone up to £18.30 on other packaging.

Is that sequential read/write or Random? Random is more important for a phone.

Don't know and don't really care. it's probably going to be comparable, more reliable and cheaper. Either dig up some more details or just vote hot and carry on with your day

Good to hear from other GoPro users that these are compatible. Seems like everyone has a GP all of a sudden!

Ordered one for my Tab 2.
Would this be good for my BlackBerry9320
Hot - ordered - thanks
Thanks ordered for my Surface Pro.
What is the difference between the card above and this one
amazon.co.uk/Sam…8-1

apart from ones a class 6 and the other is a class 10
thank you OP. By the way, what does Grade 0 mean?

Will this work ok in my PSP with a Pro Duo adapter?

Which benchmarks?
has anyone used this card in a GoPro Black using the 4K protune function or fast bursts for photos. I read that the gopro black requires class 10 but is UHS-1 actually faster even though this is only class 6

Unless the gopro black supports uhs1 then the card will only run at class 6 speeds.

RE class 10 sandisk slower than class 6. Could you link? Thanks.

Since the note 2 does 1080p video recording thought i'd need a class 10 rather than 6.
Edited by: "Inquisitor" 20th Mar 2013
Class6 means minimum write speed 6MB/s right?. You've got a very good chance of getting faster with this, but if you want guaranteed Class10 you can spend another fiver on the other one linked (£20). (Or someone can buy both and see if there's any difference!) But check the Amazon reviews these seem to benchmark up to 20MBs. You only need 10 for Class10. Basically the class system is a mess.

No you can't always trust Amazon reviews but you can't trust any professional benchmark either because you don't know if the mnfr has switched internals. Samsung has an excellent track record though.

This will work with anything that takes 32GB SDHC cards.

Phew, had ordered the Sandisk one on Prime earlier today but literally managed to get the cancellation through and the new order placed with five minutes to go...hope your advice is right
Hmm.. then in which case the advert is misleading. I can show you a pic of the sandisk class 10 hitting 40+mbs.
write speed.

it is odd, both samsung cards are listed 48MB/s read.

i've no idea what Grade 0 means, anyone?


also signed up for amazon prime, will let you know tomorrow. have to remember to cancel Prime..

I bought two of them to my GoPro Hero 3 Black Ed, working perfect. Speeds under Win 7 64bit:

USB3.0
Sequential Read : 89.101 MB/s
Sequential Write : 21.525 MB/s

USB2.0:
Sequential Read : 19.801 MB/s
Sequential Write : 16.689 MB/s
Thanks, keep us updated I'm waiting for a decent 32gb card for the note 2, 16gb doesn't seem to be enough for hd videos.
thank you (@msciazko), class 20. hot. having said that, I don't want a hundred hukders blaming me if they get less. think for yourselves ok.

btw these badges are hilarious. i rarely have more than one deal running. so average, ok.

Ok maybe I should rephrase that :P I initially bought Sandisk cards, I found the samsung plus which was cheaper and thought I'd give it ago, had 3 fail within a few months. Since then I've not even bothered to look at Samsung Cards. It was probably just a bad batch.
Edited by: "Zaim2012" 20th Mar 2013
maybe you did, but there's many reports of Sandisk fail and very few of equivalent Samsung (maybe you had fakes? maybe it was device? no offense, we don't know). the only 1star review of these is someone bitching about pricing. so i'd trust these more. nothing is 100% reliable.

just realized msciazko probably is the top reviewer on Amazon. i'll try to benchmark tomorrow.

is thier any difference I write speed compared to normal ones?
Bought one of these by accident for my DSLR. I have an adapter lying around to standard SD size. Is there any speed compromise/performance detriment in using a Micro SD card + adapter in a camera?

no disadvantage, it's just that you get better speed/value buying full size cards. also some adapters are physically faulty, loose etc.

Thanks. Will cancel my order and buy a full size card. The thought of an added component (adapter) = higher chance of failure whilst out and about was enough to put me off!

Yes, it is my review. Also I abought one of SanDisk 32GB Mobile Ultra to compare results:

USB3.0
Sequential Read : 46.411 MB/s
Sequential Write : 11.740 MB/s

USB2.0
Sequential Read : 19.673 MB/s
Sequential Write : 9.728 MB/s

For usb 3.0 I'm using: amazon.co.uk/Kin…PC/

heh, only the top end GP costs that much and has the high res/high framerate modes that need really fast cards. i'll test it tomorrow, can tell you my old Class4 Kingston (max write 6MBs, average 3MBs) isn't enough for 960p/50fps, but actually works fine for 720p. GP White and Silver are basically the 1st and 2nd gen cameras in a smaller box.

the heat here suggests yeah people do care about saving a few pounds oO


just noticed only frustration free packaging has "48MBs" in product title. there's a slight chance the two product are different. could get messy..


msciazko not doubting you just hope they haven't changed since xmas or binned the class6 to make way for class10..

thank you OP. By the way, what does Grade 0 mean?



Grade 0 is another measure of speed, using UHS - more info here:
sdcard.org/dev…ass

A quick search on Amazon for Samsung cards seems to have Class 6 / UHS-1 Grade 0 and Class 10 / UHS-1 Grade 1
would this work/fit in the Galaxy note or the S2?

we only got 2gb in each phone
