Silicon Power 256GB MicroSDHC UHS-I U3 V30 A2
Specs, Testing and More

Companies that specialize in memory cards have had to adapt or die. The market for memory cards has shrunk a fair bit over the past few years as many consumers use mobile devices for video and picture taking. Many wireless handset manufacturers do not implement removeable or expandable storage in their products as they'd rather charge you a huge premium for a device with more storage.

In the past, MicroSD cards were really limited in capacity as well as performance, so they only worked for certain mainstream applications. MicroSD storage has dramatically improved over the past few years and even the mainstream unit from Silicon Power is a bit of a force to be reckoned with. It's not a gale force, but it is a pretty strong contender. Make sure you read more to find out how it holds up.

Silicon Power recently asked if we would like to take a look at a couple more products and we happily agreed! A few of these are exceedingly handy and while they may not be the first company you think of when it comes to storage products, they probably should be. While a MicroSD card may not be that exciting to review, they can be handy - and a slow memory card is a pain in the butt. We'll see how this compares to several other flash storage options in just a little bit.

256GB Superior


There's not much to see as you can see in the image above. You get a small, get decent capacity 256GB MicroSD and an adapter. There's not much else that would sweeten the deal, so no complaints here - especially for the price!



On the next page, we'll quickly cover the specifications and features before we jump in and run a couple of tests.
