3. Final words
With the Toshiba Exceria Pro series, Toshiba is definitely targeting the demanding users who seek not anything less than speed. And according to our benchmarks, this UHS-II SD card is offering top performance in its class, matching the speeds of some low-end SSD drives. We measured some really impressive sequential speeds of 236 MB/s for read and 210 MB/s for write.
Of course, these performance numbers require high bandwidth using a fast USB 3.0 controller and the right drivers. We tested the card using two different configurations, with USB 3.0 card readers from Kingston and Panasonic. The best results came with the pricey Panasonic reader and the VIA USB 3.0 drivers with UASP/turbo mode enabled. In any case, this SD card has showed its potential and you'll have to experiment a bit in order to enjoy optimal performance.
The Toshiba Exceria Pro 32GB is not very widely available in online stores and when it's there, it retails for $180 or even more (32GB). It is certainly not a low price, but that's he case with most premium products, and the Toshiba Exceria PRO 32GB deserves your attention as it outperforms the competition in SDHC cards.
Toshiba is offering a long, five-year warranty for their Exceria cards.
