Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the addition of the 256 GB capacity to its line of Class 10 UHS-I microSDHC / microSDXC cards. The large capacity and Class 10 UHS-I speed allows users to capture more photos (up to 64,000 12MP images) and HD videos (up to 976 minutes at 1080p 30 frames per second) without interruption.
The microSDHC / microSDXC Class 10 UHS-I is the smallest form factor SD card available and is the standard expandable storage option for many tablets, smartphones and action cameras. It is ideal for cinema-quality HD (1080p) video and reduces buffer time between shots when compared to Class 4 cards. The versatile card can withstand harsh environments for adventurous travelers as it is waterproof, temperature proof, shock and vibration proof and X-ray proof. Capacities of 16 GB to 256 GB make it easy to find the right card for one’s needs and provides space for thousands of hi-res photos and hours of video.
“We are excited to ship our new higher capacity 256 GB microSDXC card for consumers who need more storage for photos, videos and other data,” said Annette Chan, Flash memory business manager, Kingston. “As image quality and 4K content continues to rise, we strive to push storage densities higher to match our customers’ needs for larger capacity and stable products.”
Class 10 UHS-I microSDHC / microSDXC is available initially at Microsoft stores in the United States with additional outlets coming later this quarter. It ships as a stand-alone card or with an SD card adapter in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities. Kingston recommends its latest readers for best card transfer speeds to and from a computer. The Class 10 UHS-I microSDHC / microSDXC is backed by lifetime warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability.
