As of late, we have seen the introduction of UHS II, along with the addition of a Speed Class 3 added to the UHS I specification. Today, we take a step back and look our very first SD solution from Samsung, the EVO 32GB UHS I.
The Samsung EVO UHS I is a SDHC solution catered to the average consumer wanting capacity for their cameras, camcorders and other mobile solutions. This card carries both a Speed Class 10 designation, along with its UHS I spec enabling 48 MB/s transfer speeds.
MSRP for the Samsung EVO in the 32GB capacity is set at $24.99 with a ten-year warranty.
Packaging for the EVO has it houses in a bubble type container. Capacity is listed prominently on the front next to the marketing specifications.
Above, we have our first look at the card. The EVO carries the standard form factor for SD cards and features an orange on white aesthetic.
The backside of the card houses model numbers along with other identifying marks.
The Samsung EVO UHS I is factory formatted with the FAT32 file system, insuring compatibility between Windows and Macintosh computers. The usable capacity after formatting is 29.2GB.
CrystalDiskMark results for the EVO came in at 46 MB/s read and 19.8 MB/s write.
The price/performance for the EVO landed the card near the bottom of the chart.
The Samsung EVO is a great solution for those wanting a capacity oriented storage solution. The build quality of the card was great and even more backed by a ten-year warranty adding to the value of the overall package.
The Samsung EVO 32GB UHS I solution didn't go too well in our price/performance chart, largely due to the fact we have seen some of the highest performing solution come through the lab in previous months. In our quick CDM testing, we did manage to reach 42 MB/s read, falling just short of the 48 MB/s set forth by marketing.
However, it does offer a decent amount of performance for your dollar, especially if you are one that wants storage capacity over a high performance solution.
