Design and build
The SanDisk Ultra Plus retention cards appear like most other standard size SD cards. It has a black casing and a white sticker on the forepart indicating speed, course and capacity. There is a line to write the contents of the card on the forepart, and at that place is a lock on the side to preclude accidental overwriting.
The gold pins used to transfer data are on the back on the carte du jour, forth with the series number at the bottom of the carte du jour.
In this review we tested the 32GB retention card, and we will include the following comparables with their corresponding advertised performance numbers:
- Samsung EVO 32GB (48MB/s Read, “slower than transfer speed” Write)
- Samsung Plus Series 32GB (48MB/s Read, 13MB/due south Write)
Using our Consumer Testing Platform, nosotros measured transfer speeds from the 32GB SanDisk Ultra Plus memory card, which gave us sequential speeds of 46.6MB/s read and 11.8MB/due south write; the retentivity carte du jour came in above the claimed speeds. The EVO had speeds of 44.6MB/southward read and 19.0MB/s write, which were correct on par with the SanDisk Ultra Plus. It was slower than the retiring Samsung Plus, which had sequential speeds of 70.00MB/s read, while write activity hit 19.82MB/s.
Switching to random large-cake transfers, nosotros measured slower speeds at 43.03MB/s read and 3.87MB/southward write. These were much lower than the Samsung cards on the write side; the EVO had 44.0MB/s read and an impressive 31.6MB/s write and the Samsung Plus had random large-block transfer speeds measured at 66.13MB/s read and 19.71MB/s write.
Nosotros’ve also begun measuring random 4K IOPS functioning for those evaluating cards for embedded systems. The SanDisk Ultra Plus SD posted 411IOPS read and 336IOPS write.
The SanDisk Ultra Plus memory carte ranges in capacity from 16GB to 128GB. It is durable, has a low cost point and comes with a lifetime warranty. It is ideal for those who use compact-to-midrange point-and-shoot digital cameras and camcorders.
The SanDisk Ultra Plus performed well in sequential speeds but gave up quite a bit to Samsung in random big-block writes. Sequential speeds were to a higher place where SanDisk claimed: 46.6MB/s read and xi.8MB/s write vs. 40MB/s read and “write speed lower.” Ultimately for the target sequential workload the card did what was advertised and should be more than than sufficient for upkeep-oriented workloads that demand a bit more than grunt power than true depression-finish commodity flash.
- Low price point
- Lifetime warranty
- Low random large-cake write speeds
The Bottom Line
The SanDisk Ultra Plus is a durable memory card, with a low price bespeak and lifetime warranty, perfect for mainstream users who employ compact-to-midrange point-and-shoot digital cameras and camcorders.
