SanDisk Ultra 90MB/s microSDXC 200GB Memory Card Review

SanDisk Ultra 90MB/s 200GB microSDXC Card

Introduction

SanDisk Ultra microSD cards command the top spot in the microSD card market. Their ubiquity may be unquestionable, but the cards are known for their brand name and price rather than top performance. The 200GB Ultra brings UHS-I performance with a 90MB/s read speed rating. SanDisk makes no claim about its write speed other than the 10MB/s conitnuous write speed guaranteed by its Class 10 rating. Benchmark tests will reveal its write performance. Ultra microSD cards are available in 8, 16, 32, 64, 128GB, 200GB and 256GB capacities. The 200 and 256GB cards have a 90MB/s read speed rating. The 200GB microSDXC version is evaluated in this article.
