(SD) MicroSD benchmarks!



The tests were conducted on the ASUS UX302LG with Samsung EVO SSD as the work horse, and the cards connected to the system via Transcend RDF8 (Firmware TS22) connected via USB 3.0, h2testw 1.4 and CrystalDiskMark v3.0.3 x64 (50mb x1, 4000mb x1, 1000mb x 5).

Barun Electronic GoldFlash PLUS MicroSD



Summary:


Read - 90761KB/s
Write - 17302KB/s
Powered with TLC nand in the heart of the memory card, and at the price tag of around SGD$22 (32GB) or SGD$40 (64GB) with courier delivery, the price is pretty good. But whether if it is the most value, well, we will have to look at the rest of the other memory cards to make a real statement. However, on the mobile-wise, it is pretty safe to say that it has a very good performance.

Summary:

Read – 42704KB/s
Write – 32756KB/s
Powered with MLC nand in the heart of the memory card, and at the price tag of around SGD$49 (64GB) with courier delivery, the price is pretty good for such write speeds. Whilst its write and read are relatively premium I find it hard to recommend such a card because of the spike in speeds from the beginning and as such, in use in devices doing block file transfers such as camera’s, it might not be the best option either. On the mobile end, it has a rather average speed, so we really do recommend the use of the PLUS variant over this, if you are considering between the two.

Memorette’s Memento EXpert MicroSD (64GB)



Summary:

Overall, as we can see, the write speed is pretty constant, but, there was a time where there was a sudden spike in speed for a short while. Read speed however, was almost constant. In overall, the speed are:
Read – 45805KB/s
Write – 21164KB/s
Powered with TLC nand in the heart of the memory card, and at the price tag of around SGD$42 (64GB) with courier delivery, it is not the cheapest offering but with just 1 month of warranty, it might put some of you off. We would say, that this card is a pretty find all rounder, and for mobile use? Yea, it is pretty much above average.

Memorette MLC MicroSD card



Summary:


Overall, as we can see, the write speed is fluctuating, however, at only 5 seconds out of the whole test for the write being kept above 10mb/s, with more than 90% of the time being less than 10mb/s, it seems like the card is clearly falsely labelled. Read speed however, was almost constant at above 20MB/s. In overall, the speed are:
Read – 20289KB/s
Write – 7387KB/s
Supposedly powered with MLC nand in the heart of the memory card, the price of the card is not particularly cheap. Running H2testW and CrystalDiskMark showed some respectable results, however, going in-depth, we found that it is not the case. Unfortunately, that said, this card is highly not recommended and we urge ALL consumers to avoid this card.

Reviewed: Lexar High-Performance UHS-I MicroSD [300x]



Summary:


Overall, as we can see, the write speed had to start gradually, after which, it was pretty consistent, except for one point where there was a sudden dip in speed, for both read and write. Overall, the speed are:
Read – 44129KB/s
Write – 22026KB/s
Powered with MLC nand in the heart of the memory card, and at the price tag of around SGD$50 (64GB) for the older version or SGD$65 (64GB) for the newer variant. However, with the slight fluctuation in speed (at the start) compounded by the puzzling sudden dip in speed, it is a little weird. However, durability of this card should be pretty good, considering that it is MLC powered, and that the random read is otherwise fairly constant as well. We would, however, still recommend this for use in camera’s rather than mobile device though.

Reviewed: Kingston Advanced Class 10 UHS-I (64GB) [Also Known As Kingston UltimateX MicroSD]



Summary:



Overall, as we can see, the write speed had a sharp start, after which, it was pretty consistent, but for both read and write it is been consistent, in fact, very consistent. Overall, the speed are:
READ – 42739KB/s
WRITE – 14902KB/s
We tried to ask for the technology behind the card, but we were told that it can’t be revealed. However, we believe that the card is powered by TLC nand. With a price tag of around SGD$42 (64GB) locally, it has a very consistent random speed (as seen in the graph), however, it is very slow. That said, the durability of this card should be good, and it is backed by Kingston’s well-loved lifetime warranty. However, in light of the slow random speeds, we would not recommend it well for mobile daily use.

The full details are available here

Transcend Premium UHS-I [300x] (64GB)



Summary:


Overall, as we can see, the write speed had a sharp start, after which, it had a sudden short spike in write speed. After that, it bellowed down to a pretty consistent speed. In the read portion, it seems pretty similar, with a speed spike at the start and at the end, but that said, it has been mostly above the 15mb/s and 70mb/s mark for write and read respectively. Looking onto the random read graph, there has also been a few random ‘spots’ of the read which shows slight inconsistency within the card. Overall, the speed are:
READ – 78111 kb/s
WRITE – 18200 kb/s
All in all, the card is a pretty well-rounded card as you can see, although, there might be slight concerns with the random or rather, usage with mobile devices. On the positive end, the card out performed its rated specification of 45 MB/s by a huge margin (in the read) which is commendable. With a availability price of $49, however, we are not convinced that this is the best for value card available, just yet.

Samsung OEM MicroSD 64GB



Summary:


Overall, as we can see, the card has a rather consistent performance in both read and write. In fact, the speed are also pretty good. However, when we tried to run the multiple random test, or block test, it failed to run. In addition, the random read was pretty good as well, as you can see in the response time graph. Overall, the speed are:
READ – 83500 kb/s
WRITE – 18851 kb/s
All in all, the card is very well-rounded. For both mobile use or camera (sequential) use, we can happily recommend this. The performance is close to that of another high-end Samsung microSD card which will be covered at a later date. With a availability price of $39, we are very convinced of this value, if it is ever available. However, these cards usually come with very limited or else, no warranty, so it will be best to test the cards with H2testW first, the moment you receive it.

For Samsung MicroSD 32GB



Summary:


Overall, the card has a very spotty and varying write speed but, pretty consistent read speed. There was 2 instances where it dipped so slightly below 10MB/s and when we tried to run the multiple random test, or block test, it failed to run. On the other hand, the random read was pretty good as well, as you can see in the response time graph. In essence, the average speeds are:
READ – 44945KB/s
WRITE – 22483KB/s
All in all, the card we believe should be armed with the cheapest TLC NAND available, but its speed was not too bad either. However, we worry for the endurance or durability of the card overtime, but for now it is of great value. With a street price tag of SGD$15 for the 32GB variant, SGD$32 for the 64GB variant, this cards were well worth the money. This, however, was just marginally cheaper than the AnyCall card which costed us SGD$17 for the 32GB variant and SGD$35 for the 64GB variant. I would be more comfortable recommending a branded card over a unbranded unknown card, but for the price, it might just be worth that cash for the short term use.

Samsung Plus MicroSD 64GB



Summary:



Overall, as we can see, the card has a rather consistent performance in both read and write. In fact, the speed are also pretty good. The performance in the random category, however, is really good as evident in both graphs. Overall, the speed are:
READ – 45574KB/s
WRITE – 22654KB/s
All in all, the card does not have the fastest sequential speeds but it sure has a extremely good random speed. Yes, I would highly recommend this card for mobile use looking at the speed. Powered with TLC (or rather, as what Samsung calls it: ‘3-bit MLC‘) NAND at its heart, with a price availability of $48, this card is worth a look, although it is not the cheapest around. That said, however, if you are thinking of recording 4K video content on this card, we still urge you to reconsider, since it will require at least 30MB/s of performance and none of the cards that we have reviewed to date meets this requirement.

See it all here!

Best Bargain is pretty reputable. If it is not from Kiara then it is parallel imports if i am not wrong.

Haven't managed to run the test for SanDisk yet though

Identify microSD card powered with MLC or TLC

Hi
I am having problem to buy microSD card powered by MLC. By physical look the microSD card doesn't indicate or printed on the card. Can someone advise on how to choose from different brand? Thanks

Mlc is a card technology not brand. What's the exact issue?
