Lexar recently announced their first high endurance microSDHC and microSDXC UHS-I cards. With microSDs being popular with dashcams and security cameras, these new high endurance cards from Lexar sound perfect as they are designed for environments that have extensive write/erase cycles.

This review will take a look at the Lexar 64GB microSDXC card which includes the following key features:

  • High endurance memory
  • Designed for recording profiles of security and dashboard cameras
  • Records up to 12,000 hours of video
  • Uses UHS-I for superior performance

Performance

The performance of memory cards can be variable as it is generally limited by the quality of the integrated card reader of the device. Our standard practice now is to speed test microSD cards using the internal card reader on our Microsoft Surface Pro 3.

Final Thoughts

Lexar have seen the need for memory cards to be able to handle extensive write and erase cycles as the popularity of dashcams and security cameras increase. Their new range of high endurance microSDXC cards performed quite well. During our tests, they hit peak read speeds of 88MB/s and write speeds of 47 MB/s using the ATTO Disk Benchmark. Our results were slightly better than the Lexar High Performance microSDXC card we reviewed previously.

For anyone in the market for a highly durable microSDXC card, this is one card that shouldn’t be passed up. It offers great performance and perfect for those about to roll out security cameras around their home.

We rate this as highly recommended.
