Why is it important: When it comes to continuous video recording, as is the case with CCTV cameras and DVRs, storage/memory durability matters much more than just transfer speed. After all, having and preserving the evidence that led to an unfortunate incident is critical. That’s why high-durability microSD cards are preferred when setting up video recording devices so that replacements are rare and infrequent. With the largest capacity 256GB variant of its new Pro Endurance microSD series, Samsung claims a lifespan of 140,160 hours, which means 16 years of continuous video recording.

Not surprisingly, reducing storage capacity also reduces the number of hours of continuous recording, as well as the warranty period.

From point of view microSD speed class and performance, the 32GB and 64GB models are Class 10 UHS-1 V10, making them capable of 720p/1080p/4K recording with a maximum read speed of 100MB/s and a maximum write speed of 30MB/s. At the same time, the higher capacity options offer read/write speeds of 100MB/40MB per second and are ideal for shooting at higher frame rates (60/120fps) in Full HD and 4K Class 10 UHS-3 V30.

Regardless of storage capacity, Samsung has included “six times” reliability throughout the new Pro Endurance line. Newer versions now have additional protection against wear and accidental drops, as well as the protection measures against water, extreme temperatures, magnets and X-rays that were used in the previous generation.
