More durable, higher capacity microSD card enables up to 16 years
of continuous recording and playback to capture every critical moment

Samsung Electronics America, the leader in advanced memory technology, today announced its new microSD card, the Samsung PRO Endurance. Uniquely designed to meet the rigorous demands of surveillance cameras, dashboard cameras, doorbell cameras, body cameras and more, the card offers improved endurance and outstanding performance for smooth and reliable continuous capture and playback.

“From CCTV to doorbell cameras, our newest PRO Endurance card is designed to support the increasing demand for long-lasting and high-performance video surveillance solutions,” said Jim Kiczek, Vice President of Memory Marketing at Samsung Electronics America. “Consumers and enterprise users can trust our new high-endurance memory card to ensure continuous video recording in high resolution even under extreme conditions.”

Strengthened Endurance

Built with Samsung’s highly reliable enterprise-grade NAND flash memory, the PRO Endurance card can deliver up to 16 years (140,160 hours)[1] of continuous recording time to ensure every critical moment is captured. This means a single PRO Endurance card can last as long as up to 33 typical speed-focused cards[2], saving frequent replacement costs and providing greater reliability for always-on video monitoring.

Improved Performance

Samsung’s new memory card also offers read and write speeds of up to 100 megabytes per second (MB/s) and 40 MB/s[3], respectively, and is rated Class 10 with video speed ratings of up to U3 (UHS Speed Class 3) and V30 (Video Speed Class 30)[4]. This makes it ideal for handling large, high-resolution files while enabling seamless recording and playback in Full HD and 4K.

Long-Lasting Durability

Since outdoor surveillance and body cameras can be subject to harsh environments, the PRO Endurance microSD has been engineered to offer trusted performance in everyday use with Samsung’s reinforced six-proof durability. In addition to protection against water, magnets, X-rays and extreme temperatures, the card is now wear out-proof and drop-proof[5].

Available in four different storage capacities of 32 gigabytes (GB), 64GB, 128GB and 256GB with the manufacturer’s suggested retail prices (MSRP) ranging from $10.99 for the 32GB to $54.99 for the 256GB, the PRO Endurance card is available worldwide starting May 3.
