Lexar today announced the new Lexar Professional 1800x microSDHC and microSDXC UHS-II cards, as well as the Lexar Portable SSD. With read transfer speeds up to 270MB per second, the Lexar Professional 1800x microSDHC and microSDXC UHS-II cards are designed for sports camcorders, aerial camera, tablets, and smartphones.
Based on internal testing, Lexar Professional 1800x microSD UHS-II card users can offload data up to nine times faster with the microSD UHS-II USB 3.0 reader than when transferring content using traditional sports camcorders and accompanying USB cable. Available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities, Professional 1800x microSD UHS-II cards can quickly capture, play back, and transfer extended lengths of the highest quality 4K, 3D, and 1080p full-HD video. As with all Lexar Professional cards, a lifetime copy of Image Rescue software is included to recover any lost or deleted files, and each card is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
The Professional 1800x microSDHC and microSDXC UHS-II cards are backwards compatible with UHS-I devices, performing up to the maximum threshold of UHS-I speed capabilities (SDR104), as well as non-UHS-1 devices, performing at Class 10 speeds.
Lexar Professional 1800x microSD UHS-II cards are currently available with an MSRP of £65.99 (32GB), £109.99 (64GB), and £219.99 (128GB).
The Lexar Portable SSD delivers read transfer speeds up to 450MB per second. It is available in 256GB and 512GB capacities and features a LED capacity meter to easily gauge available storage space.
Additionally, the Lexar Portable SSD is compatible with the Lexar Professional Workflow line of products.
