Toshiba says that the EXCERIA M301-EA 64GB MicroSD card we will test today has a maximum read speed of 48MB/s. The company does not give a max speed for write. The Class 10 card guarantees a minimum write and read speed of 10 MB/s, and the Speed Class 1 (U1) ensures a minimum read and write performance of 10 MBytes/s with UHS-I interface.

The card is backed by a five-year limited standard warranty.

Below the see the moulded plastic packaging of the EXCERIA M301-EA 64GB MicroSD card:

The SD card is very small at 15 mm x 11 mm x 1mm (L x W x H) and its weigh is just 0.4g. It easily slides into the provided adapter and with the Toshiba write-protect feature, you can prevent accidental overwrites.


2. Benchmarks

In the benchmarks you see below, the Toshiba Exceria M301-EA 64GB MicroSDXC topped the 42.5 MB/s in sequential read, and around 14.5 MB/s for the corresponding write test. Of course, do not expect to see high writing speeds with small files as you might see from an SSD.

Featuring capacities up to 64GB and read speeds of up to 42MB/s, the new mainstream EXCERIA MicroSD M301-EA product family is a is a an essential accessory for your mobile phone, and the included adapter adds convenience and compatibility with SD or SDHC slots. Toshiba has also made sure your MicroSD card will make survive through airport security checks as it is X-ray proof, and will also survive ant accidental drops into water during your vacation. The card worked great in any smartphone we used it with, and was recognized immediately.

Priced at less than £14 over Amazon (64GB), the Toshiba microSD delivers what it is supposed to and is a good value backed with a 5-year warranty.
