Samsung just announced upgraded microSD and SD memory cards in its professional PRO Plus series for use in equipment as varied as drones, phones, and DSLR cameras. The new read and write speeds are 180 MB/s and 130 MB/s, respectively, while the cards are V30-certified for rapid video transfers.

If a professional video editor or drone operator wants good transfer speeds and longevity from their memory cards without breaking the piggy bank, it's hard to go wrong with Samsung's Pro+ family of microSD and SD cards. Available in 128GB-512GB sizes, they offer a rather affordable avenue to upgrade your equipment with good read or write speeds on the cheap.

Samsung just announced an upgrade to its PRO Plus line of memory cards, upping their read speeds to 180 MB/s and rounding the write speed up to 130 MB/s. Granted, there are faster memory cards out there, but they are also more expensive than what Samsung is offering.

The cards still have a V30 Video Speed Class rating, meaning that they can handle 8K definition videos, multiple video streams, 360-degree capture, VR content, and the like. The Video Speed Class 30 ensures a minimum write speed of 30MB/s for all those simultaneous videography loads.
