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.

Growing up in a small farm town, tech wasn't around, unless it was in a tractor. At an early age, Tyler's parents brought home their first PC. Tyler was hooked and learned what it meant to format a HDD, spending many nights reinstalling Windows 95. Tyler's love and enthusiast nature always kept his PC nearby. Eager to get deeper into tech, he started reviewing.
