Samsung's New Dashcam Memory Card Records Non-stop for up to 16 Years

When it comes to dashcam memory cards, longevity reigns supreme, and Samsung believes it has some of the longest-lasting cards yet. The company has released next-generation Pro Endurance microSD cards with up to 16 years of continuous recording for the 256GB version – you'll probably purchase a new automobile before the flash memory fails. Lower-capacity cards will not live as long (the 128GB model lasts eight years), but this should help you avoid frequent replacements.

In context, Samsung's prior portfolio generally lasted five years. In a field where two to four years of continuous recording is normal, this is regarded as better than average.

All cards can read at up to 100MB/s and write at 30MB/s or faster, so shooting 1080p or 4K footage should be no problem. According to Samsung, the cards are also resistant to drops, magnets, water, severe temperatures, and X-rays.

The Pro Endurance series is now available, with prices ranging from $11 for a 32GB memory card to $55 for the top-of-the-line 256GB model. If you wish to save a huge amount of video, the comparatively modest maximum storage capacity may be frustrating. However, it should be sufficient for dashcams, bodycams, and other cameras where dependability is critical.
