The most important factor to consider when looking for a dashcam memory card is longevity, and Samsung believes it has developed some of the most durable cards available. For the 256GB version, the company has launched next-generation Pro Endurance microSD cards that can record continuously for up to 16 years, which means you’ll probably be able to buy a new vehicle before the flash memory fails. Lower-capacity cards will not survive as long as higher-capacity cards, but this should still allow you to avoid having to replace them on a regular basis.
In order to provide some background, Samsung’s prior lineup often reached its pinnacle after five years. That’s regarded above normal in a sector where two to four years of non-stop filming is usual, according to the experts.
You shouldn’t have any problem shooting 1080p or 4K video since all cards can read at rates of up to 100MB/s and write at speeds of 30MB/s or faster. Drops, magnets, water, severe temperatures, and X-rays are all said to be no match for the cards, according to Samsung.
It is also claimed that the devices are waterproof, “temperature-proof” (they will function at temperatures ranging from -25 degrees Celsius to 85 degrees Celsius), X-ray-proof, invulnerable to magnetic fields less powerful than those encountered in magnetic resonance imagers, able to withstand a five-meter fall, as well as “wearout-proof” if correctly placed and removed from a device for a total of 10,000 times.
Currently, the Pro Endurance series of memory cards is available for purchase, with prices ranging from $11 for a 32GB card to $55 for the top-of-the-line 256GB model. In the event that you need to save a big quantity of video, the relatively limited maximum storage capacity may be a disappointment. However, it should be sufficient for dashcams, bodycams, and other types of cameras in which dependability is critical to operation.
