3Since when did 'Select' become synonymous with 'Slow'?
By NLee the Engineer
I tested the old Samsung EVO microSDHC card (MB-MP32DA/AM) back in Oct 2014 and liked it. When I found this newer version (Samsung EVO Select UHS-1 32GB microSDHC) on sale for a good price, I quickly grabbed another one.

The Amazon product page for EVO Select claims "High-performance up to 80MB/s for full HD video recording". This implies its WRITE speed is up to 80MB/s, which would be fantastic for such a low cost card. However on the back of the package I received it says: "Read Speed up to 80MB/s; Write Speed up to 20MB/s"

I used a program called 'CrystalDiskMark 3.0.1 x64' to measure, among other things, the Sequential Read and Write speed of this card. The card reader I used is the Transcend USB 3.0 Card Reader (TS-RDF5K), connected to an USB 3.0 port. My measured results are:
EVO Select - 92.5MB/s Read, 25.3MB/s Write
(See my uploaded screenshot for details)

In comparison, the old Samsung EVO UHS-1 card is advertised as "Up to 48MB/s". My measured results were:
EVO - 47.5MB/s Read; 38.5MB/s Write.

So the new card is faster in Read but slower in Write. In most demanding applications (such as recording video in HD, or shooting DSLR in burst mode), the Write speed is the limiting factor. That means the 'EVO Select' series will not perform as well as the old 'EVO' series in those cases.

[Bottom Line]
I am disappointed that the new Samsung EVO Select series is advertised as "Up to 80MB/s", yet it Writes SLOWER than the old EVO series which claims 48MB/s. As of this writing, both versions are available at the same price, so I definitely recommend getting the old version instead.

[Other Remarks]
- The new EVO Select card is made in Philippines. Old one is made in Korea.
- The capacity of this '32GB' card, as reported by my computer, is only 29.8GB. This is actually normal since computer people count one 'Gig' as '2 to the power 30', which is 7.37% larger than 1 billion. So 29.8GB is equal to 32 billion bytes.

5Works great. I did not do any tests to verify ...
By Dave Carlson
Works great. I did not do any tests to verify speed because this is just going in my mother-in-law's phone to store pictures, but I plugged it into my pc to copy files over and it seemed quick. She has been using it in her phone for a while now with no troubles. I have always bought these samsung cards because they never disappoint. I have a 4 year old card in my current phone that I have not needed to replace yet. I paid much more 4 years ago but these have drastically come down in price now and I am surprised every time I come to buy a new one for something because they seem to be cheaper each time.

5great product for the price
By Sean Esterlund
Bought this for my New Gameboy 3DS LX, understand that if you decide to get one for yours that there is a bit of unscrewing that you will have to do so make sure you have the right size tools as to not strip them. but changing out the Card was very simple, and the 3DS recognized it immediately. great product for the price. Would buy again :)
