Kingston Digital Announces Value-Priced SDXC Class 10 Memory Card


Fountain Valley, CA—Kingston Digital, the flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, announced an SDXC Class 10 memory card targeted at price-conscious consumers who want to capture Full HD videos and high-resolution photos.

Compliant with the latest SD Association specification, Kingston’s Secure Digital Extended Capacity (SDXC) Class 10 card operates on the exFAT file system, which is designed to handle extremely large volumes of data, such as files bigger than 4GB.

Available in 64GB and 128GB capacities, the cards are designed to meet the storage demands of high-quality digital still and video cameras as well as other personal electronic devices. The cards offer a speed class rating known as Class 10, which delivers a 10MB/s minimum sustained transfer rate for optimum performance with SDXC-compatible devices.

“It is important to note that although SDXC cards are identical in size to standard SD cards, they have a different design and are only recognized by SDXC host devices,” said Andrew Ewing, Flash memory business manager, Kingston. “Consumers need to make sure that their camera or camcorder carries the SDXC logo to ensure compatibility and make the most of the new, huge capacity options.”

Kingston’s solid-state SDXC memory cards are built of nonvolatile memory components and have no moving parts that could wear out or break. All cards are tested and backed by a lifetime warranty as well as free live technical support.

Kingston’s 64GB SDXC Class 10 card retails for $80; the 128GB version has an MSRP of $182.
