SD and Micro SD cards Kioxia SDXC EXCERIA PLUS 256 GB - Review

KIOXIA has just launched a series of high-capacity SDXC cards designed for use in high-quality photography. The promise is that they can even easily support the writing speed necessary to record in 4K now that even mid-range mobiles can record at 4K with 24fps, in addition to many cameras or action cameras.

For this review we have put both KIOXIA SDXC EXCERIA PLUS 256 GB cards in different benchmarks to have firm figures for their transfer, read and write capabilities. We take as a reference that we are promised 100 MB / s of reading and 85 MB / s of writing.

We are grateful to Kioxia for giving us the material to do the review.

Unboxing

KIOXIA SDXC EXCERIA PLUS memory cards

Blister of the Micro SDXC Kioxia Exceria Plus 256 GB, which includes an adapter for use in normal size SD card readers. In the packaging it is suggested that we use it in action cameras such as the Go Pro to record our adventures.

Back with specifications. We can read that it is adapted for the speed necessary to record and read in 4K, resistant to water and falls, as well as being compatible with Android.

Now touch the blister of the SDXC Kioxia Exceria Plus 256 GB. This time, the packaging is suggested to us that we use it in professional cameras to be able to save burst photos and videos in high quality.

At the rear we see that we are promised 4K speeds, and resistance to high temperatures, which would be adapted to high workload tasks such as a long 4K video session.

The Crystal Mark program confirms that the KIOXIA micro SDXC EXCERIA PLUS read speed is close to the promised 100 MB / s read and 85 MB / s write, even exceeding a bit.

Conclusion

Here we are interested that the cards, both the microSD and the normal SD of the KIOXIA SDXC EXCERIA PLUS comply with what was promised in the specifications, and that thanks to this they are made for 4K video recording. Tests in several benchmarks confirm that there is hardly any difference from what was promised in performance, and there is even a little more speed of writing. If there is a little less speed of reading, the difference is hardly noticeable. With the data we have, these two cards are made and used for 4K video recording.

The fact that there are two models offers a certain choice: the normal-size KIOXIA SDXC EXCERIA PLUS has protection against high temperatures and shock, while the KIOXIA microSDXC EXCERIA PLUS has protection against water if the mobile is dropped into a pool or puddle, and makes it ideal for action cameras that are often used to record underwater videos.
