PNY PRO Elite 1TB microSDXC Memory Card Review
Peter Donnell / 2 years ago
There’s no shortage of quick and cheap memory cards these days, and stores like Amazon are crammed full of solutions for you to choose from… actually, if anything, there are too many to choose from and trying to find the true high-performance models is not easy. Many models don’t really state their true capacity, and I won’t be the first to call out the fact that there are plenty of fakes in the market or imported models that make loose performance claims. These are things that aren’t going to help those who need something serious. If you are running a high-performance device, such as a 4K camera in a professional environment, you need something you can trust. Of course, that’s where PNY come into play. They’ve been one of the biggest names in the business for high-end storage and graphics processing hardware, and they’ve just released their new PNY PRO Elite 1TB MicroSDXC memory card!
PNY PRO Elite 1TB microSDXC
This card doesn’t come cheap, with an MSRP of just under £200. That’s a lot of money for something the size of a fingernail, but you do get some pretty awesome performance figures to justify the price. It’s a 1TB capacity, which is frankly huge for MicroSD. It’s also got some of the best ratings out there right now; Class 10, UHS-I, U3, V30, and A2 rated! That means insane read speeds of 100MB/s and write speeds of 90MB/s. Sure, not much compared to a high-end M.2 SSD, but keep in mind just how small these MicroSD cards are. For recording 4K video at up to 120 FPS, loading high-performance focused applications on mobile devices, or running drones, DSLRs and even quickly loading games on devices like the Nintendo Switch, this is pretty much your ultimate MicroSD card option right now.
- 1TB, Class 10, UHS-I, U3, V30, A2 rated, up to 100MB/s read speed and 90MB/s write speed
- A2 App Performance allows for smartphones and tablets to run apps much faster and directly from the microSD card, saving additional space on device’s internal storage
- V30 performance is ideal for 4K Ultra HD video recording at a resolution of 4096×3072 (pix) and 60/120 fps. U3 is ideal for high resolution pictures and digital content
- Ideal for smartphones, tablets, action cameras, drones, DSLRs, video cameras and more
- SD Adapter included
