The Sam­sung Pro mem­ory cards have a quoted read speed of 90MB per sec­ond and a write speed of 80MB per sec­ond. When put through the Quick­bench soft­ware, our card de­liv­ered con­sis­tent 82MB per sec­ond read and 68MB per sec­ond write speeds, putting it in third place. This re­sult was re­flected in the buf­fer test, where a 29MB-per-sec­ond write speed to clear the buf­fer makes it marginally slower than the SanDisk.

The card has a feel­ing of qual­ity that is lack­ing from some of the other cards and, as you’d hope from a pre­mium prod­uct, this range has been de­signed to with­stand the every­day rigours that pho­tog­ra­phers sub­ject cards to. It’s shock-, wa­ter-, mag­net- and X-ray-proof, and has also been tested at tem­per­a­tures be­tween -25 and 85 de­grees Cel­sius.

For the price, this Sam­sung card is a good all-rounder, and it feels pleas­ingly ro­bust as well
