  1. Running out of storage on your smartphone, tablet or 4K video camera? Well, good news, SD cards have never been more affordable and crucially, never offered such huge storage capacities either. Samsung recently announced the availability of a 256GB version of their popular EVO Plus MicroSD card series. Not unlike Samsung’s solid state drives, the EVO+ MicroSD card takes advantage of the company's advanced 48-cell layer V-NAND technology. This enables both, higher capacities and greater performance.

    The Samsung EVO+ 256GB has been rated for read and write speeds of up to 90MB/s. With 256GB at your disposal, users can now record up to 12 hours of 4K UHD video or 33 hours of Full HD video or store up to 55,200 photos without needing to change or replace the memory card.

    (Ah, the posting is working again)
    Can I put two of these in an FiiO x5 2nd gen, or 1 in an FiiO x3 2nd gen?

    If only there was a nexus tablet that could take microSD.

    What the heck is this (on Amazon):

    Samsung EVO Select Micro SDXC Memory Card, 256GB, 95MB/s

    Is a "Select" a bin'd, lower performing "+" ?

    I'm so confused.
