There are many microSD brands that we can buy right now. But one newcomer, namely the microSD class 10 made by Kingston is quite our attention. Because the microSD one was created specifically for the Indonesian market.
The MicroSD which was just released last week is now in our office. Yes, we got a sample shipment to be tested with a capacity of 32 GB.
For your information, the 32 GB capacity we receive is the highest capacity. How come? Yes, because the microSD is classified as an economical product intended for those entry-level smartphone users to the mid-end.
So overall there are only two available capacity options: 16 and 32 GB. For the 16 GB version, the retail price is around IDR 70 thousand. While the 32 GB capacity is around IDR 130 thousand .
For the products we receive, this includes the SD card adapter in the sales package. So it can also be used for other devices, such as digital cameras or music players for example.
We also had time to try to prove the claim from Kingston which states that the speed can at least reach 10MB per second or even reach 70MB per second .
This claim is true because when we try to transfer photo files, in one minute can send up to 300 files (size per photo between 1-3 MB).
In addition to the speed test, we also tried the water resistant claim. From the official website, there is a water resistant and extreme weather IEC / EN 60529 IPX7 certification .
The test is simple, namely by flushing using water from a glass. After that we dry it until it is completely dry and the microSD can still function properly. Oh yes as an additional info, this microSD is accompanied by an official guarantee for a full year .
