Silicon Power Superio A1 Memory Card Review | Perfect for 4K recording

Memory cards aren’t something I have really covered a lot of and really didn’t think that it was something people would be interested in, but from doing a bit of research it seems that memory card reviews are actually a thing! So as a first for Cleb’s Tech, today I will be taking a look at the Silicon Power Superio UHS-1 A1 Memory Card. That’s a tongue twister!

Big thanks to Silicon Power for sending this over for review!

With all that out of the way, here is the review!

What’s in the Box?

Well I wouldn’t really call it a box, more of a plastic cross cardboard pack. The outer retail packaging is cardboard then on the inside is the plastic clamshell which houses the Micro SD card itself and the Micro SD to SD adapter.

Design and Features

There’s really not much to say about the design of the card, it’s a pretty standard looking Micro-SD Card. It does have some info about the card on the top of it. Depending on the size of card that you get it will be a different colour. Mine being an orangey colour as I have the 256GB model.

Features

  • Up to 100MB/s & 80MB/s read & write speeds; UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) and Video Speed Class 30 (V30)
  • High compatibility for different types of devices including smartphones, tablets, Drones, Android Tablets, Tablet PCs, Action Cameras, DSLR and 4K or Full HD camcorder.
  • Compatible with Nintendo Switch, which enables a budget-friendly solution for you to boost the storage.
  • Bonus Micro-SD Card to SD Card adapter so that you can use it in anything that takes a regular SD Card
  • High capacity of 256GB capable of storing 4K recording for creators
  • Meets the UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) and the UHS Video Speed Class 30 (V30) standards for 4K Ultra HD video recording
  • Meets the new A1 standards for app performance, delivering minimum random read of 1,500 IOPS and random write of 500 IOPS, as well as sustained sequential speeds of at least 30 MB/s
  • Waterproof, dustproof, temperature-proof, and X-ray-proof for use in extreme environments
  • Equipped with an automatic error correction code (ECC) function

Specs

Performance

The performance of the Superio Micro SD Card is pretty good. With a USB 3.0 SD card reader I was able to get about 94 MB/s Read and about 70 MB/s Write. Perfect speeds for things like 4K video recording

Pricing

The Silicon Power Superio UHS-I A1 Memory Card can be found online for around AUD $50. Not bad pricing for a pretty speedy 256GB SD Card.

Conclusion

To wrap up the review. The Silicon Power Superio UHS-I A1 Memory Card is a pretty solid choice for those who want a fast and reliable SD card for their camera or to expand storage on things like a smartphone or Nintendo Switch
