Pros: - Reliable. I have had no problems with this card in a Samsung Galaxy S5 Smart Phone. I have transferred 10's of GB of data to, and from the phone for more than 6 months and the card still works flawlessly.
- Fast enough to record UHD (3840X2160) or FHD (1920X1080) continuously without problems of buffering or hangups.
- Price was good for the card capacity
Cons: - I wish it was 256GB capacity.
Other Thoughts: I replaced a G-Skill microSDXC card which was constantly failing and loosing all the data on the card. Before I replaced it, the G-Skill card was causing my phone to crash and I had to do a full factory reset at least once per week. I thought my Samsung Galaxy S5 was defective. I did a full reformat on the G-Skill card several times with no improvement. I tested for viruses and malware on the card with every cleaning and maintenance app I could download. Nothing helped.
I replaced the G-Skill card with this Team 128GB card and all my phone problems disappeared. As I stated above. I transfer 10's of GB of files to, and from, this card ever day for more than 6 months. I have easily written and read more than 8TB of files in that time. This is a great card.
Is this card as fast as some of the newer cards, probably not. I have not done benchmarking on the Team card. All I know is that the card has fast enough write speed to be able to capture all the video images of the highest quality the Galaxy S5 can record without hangups or buffering. The read speed from the card to another storage device is as fast as the Galaxy S5 will allow.
I highly recommend this Team microSDXC card to anyone who does a lot of file transfers on their Smart Phone. The reliability of the card is unsurpassed (IMO). The read/write speeds of the card are sufficient for the Samsung Galaxy S5 Smart Phone which meets my requirements.
Pros: - Inexpensive on Sale.
- Comes with a full Size SD Card Adapter.
- Works in the Sport Cameras (Bresser & Vivitar) to record Full 1080p video files at 60fps.
Cons: - I had to pay shipping charges on these.
Other Thoughts: I needed some microSDXC cards for my sport cameras to record an obstacle race we were doing. From previous experience, I knew that I needed at least 20Gb of space to record the event at the resolutions I was using. I saw these Silicon Power microSDXC cards on sale for US$14.99 plus US$0.99 shipping each so I bought three of them.
I have previous experience with Silicon Power microSDXC cards because I have the 128GB size in my Samsung Galaxy S5 phone and it has worked flawlessly for about a year. The G-Skill 128GB microSDXC card I had in the phone continuously locked up, lost data, and finally failed on me such that I had to replace it after only 6 months of use.
Even though the sport cameras state that they have a maximum memory card size of 32GB, the 64GB Silicon Power cards worked without problems. I was able to record more than 45GB of mixed video and still images on the cards without problems. The cards were able to be written to at the maximum Full HD quailty and 60 frames/sec without difficulty.
These cards come with full size SD card adapters to allow you to remove the microSDXC card and download files at a faster rate than the USB 2.0 cable that is on the cameras I have. Definitely an advantage when transferring 40+GB of files.
I was not able to test the maximum read and write speed of these cards. They worked perfectly for the application I purchased them for so that is good enough for me. I apologize for not doing an offline test of maximum read/write speed to benchmark against. I'll do it if I have time in the future.
I recommend these Silicon Power microSDXC cards for anyone who wants to use them in a Smart Phone or sport camera. They have been very reliable for me and I transfer 10's of GB of video files to, and from the 128GB card in my phone on a daily basis.
This review is from: ADATA 16GB UV128 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (AUV128-16G-RBE)
Pros: - Reasonably Sturdy.
- Very Good Price when On-Sale.
Cons: - None, So Far.
Other Thoughts: I purchased 30 of these Flash Drives on sale for about US$3.40 each for a project. The drives came in the full retail package and grouped in packets of 10 drives. After having written data to half of them and tested the files, I found no defects. All the drives I tested worked as expected and the housings seemed reasonably sturdy for the design.
The data files I wrote to the drives were .jpg and .RAW files. The maximum write speed I encountered going from a SSD through a SATA III interface and a USB 3.0 port was 38 MB/sec. This is on par with transferring these files to another Flash Drive. I was not able to verify the claimed 80+MB/sec rate from ADATA. Read speeds were on par with the Write speeds. At a later time I will be transferring some GB size MP4 files which will really test what these Flash Drives are capable of.
I saw the drives were on sale again and ordered another dozen of them (yellow this time). Hopefully, these will perform like the first batch.
I recommend these Flash Drives at this sale price. They are an inexpensive way to do promotions or give picture/video files to your family/friends/acquaintances.
