Kingston adds New Class 10 SDXC cards for Everyday Consumers James White October 14, 2012 Press Release 4 Flares 4 Flares × Kingston is one of the top name brands when it comes to memory of all types including SD cards. The main issue when it comes to small electronics is that high performance or high-capacity comes at a high cost. Kingstons two new Class 10 SDXC cards looks to give you both high-capacity and performance at an average cost. Kingston's new Secure Digital Extended Capacity cards use the exFAT format to provide up to 128 GB of storage space. As a class 10 card it will also maintain a minimum data rate of 10 MB/s for your favorite digital device. This is perfect for your digital video camera, portable tablet, or portable video device. It could be a little overkill for your cell phone or digital camera (unless you are a professional photographer). The new SDXC class 10 cards can be found at your favorite e-tailer at 64 GB for $49.95 and 128 GB for $114.99. This is well below Kingston's MSRP, but are very competitively priced. If I have to pick a brand when I am buying memory, I will be picking Kingston since memory is what they do.

The card captures full HD videos and high-resolution photos at an affordable price that will not break the budget. Fully compliant with the latest SD Association specification, Kingston’s Secure Digital Extended Capacity (SDXC) Class 10 card operates on the exFAT file system, which is designed to handle extremely large volumes of data, such as files bigger than 4GB. Available in 64GB and 128GB, these cards are an excellent choice to meet the storage demands of high-quality digital still and video cameras as well as other personal electronic devices that are SDXC compatible. Additionally, SDXC cards offer a speed “class” rating known as Class 10† that delivers a 10MB/s minimum sustained transfer rate for optimum performance with SDXC-compatible devices. “It is important to note that although SDXC cards are identical in size to standard SD cards, they have a different design and are only recognized by SDXC host devices,” said Andrew Ewing, Flash memory business manager, Kingston. “Consumers need to make sure that their camera or camcorder carries the SDXC logo to ensure compatibility and make the most of the new, huge capacity options.” For added reliability and durability, Kingston’s solid-state SDXC memory cards are built of nonvolatile memory components and have no moving parts that could wear out or break. All cards are 100-percent tested and are backed by a lifetime warranty as well as free live technical support. For more information, visit www.kingston.com.
