SanDisk Extreme Plus 90MB/s U3 V30 32GB SDHC Memory Card Review

SanDisk Extreme Plus 90MB/s UHS-I U3 V30 32GB SDHC Memory Card

Introduction

The SanDisk Extreme Plus 90MB/s U3 V30 32GB SDHC card adds the new V30 video speed rating. The V30 rating guarantees the card can sustain at least 30MB/s for continuous recording of video and makes it suitable for 4K recording. The Extreme Plus 90MB/s shares the same read speed rating as the Extreme 90MB/s, but it offers a higher 60MB/s write speed according to SanDisk. The non-Plus Extreme only offers 40MB/s write speed in 16, 32 and 64GB capacities. The Extreme Plus is offered in 32 and 64 GB capacities. The 64GB SDXC card model number SDSDXWF-032G-ANCIN and UPC 619659147174 is tested in this review.

The Extreme Plus 90MB/s card offers Class 10 UHS-I, UHS Speed Class 3 (U3). It is rated to support 30MB/s continuous write speed for reacording HD and 4K video, while the older SD Class 10 specification designates card capable of at least 10MB/s continuous write speed.
