Lexar already has some impressive memory cards, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t room for another one in the family line-up. That new one is the tiny 256GB Lexar Professional 1000x microSDXC UHS-II (U3) memory card. Cramming 256GB capacity into a microSD-sized card is darn nice and the card is designed for sports camcorders, tablets, and smartphones.
Video and photo resolutions keep rising which in return requires more storage capacity – or maybe you just want to record more before you unload or switch your card memory card. Whatever the reason might be, the new Lexar 256GB 1000x card will deliver speeds up to 150 MB/s when reading and up to 90 MB/s when writing.
