[Video] 5 Years vs. 3 Months: Samsung’s New PRO Endurance Memory Cards
Just like any other electronic device, memory cards have a life cycle – one that, unfortunately, can end at the most inopportune of times. Devices that are constantly recording footage, such as surveillance cameras, require a memory card that’s capable of handling the heaviest of workloads. Just imagine if, for instance, the memory card in your car’s dashcam stopped recording when you needed it most.
Constant use, however, can deteriorate a memory card’s life expectancy by as much as three months. Under certain circumstances, the recordings of always-on devices like dashcams and surveillance cameras can be absolutely crucial. Therefore, it’s important that we regularly check these devices’ memory cards’ health and replace them when necessary to prevent potential errors and data loss.
Samsung’s new PRO Endurance memory cards have been specially designed to stand up to these devices’ rigorous workloads, delivering up to five years (43,800 hours)1 of full HD video. Each memory card benefits from advanced Samsung technologies, including the 64-layer, 256GB MLC V-NAND, as well as an exclusive controller and firmware, to offer the industry’s highest level of endurance. This allows users to record hours-long full HD and 4K video – at sequential read and write speeds of 100MB/s and 30MB/s, respectively – without fear of data loss.
Each memory card is built to withstand the types of environments that always-on recording devices are typically exposed to, which means they’re not only waterproof but designed to operate without fail in temperatures ranging anywhere from minus-25 to 80 degrees Celsius. They’re also built to protect data from the effects of X-rays and magnetic fields.2
