Build and Handling
The NX-F2PRO UHS-II SD card is compact and robust, designed to withstand harsh conditions. The plastic housing feels sturdy and can handle more than the occasional drop, and although cosmetically, it will inevitably start to show signs of wear, the all-important internal storage remains intact. Despite its durability, the card being SD remains lightweight and fits as it should into SD card slots in various devices and, of course, cameras. The labelling is clear, making it easy to identify amongst other cards and being SD, there isn’t much more to it.
The NX-F2PRO SD card is brimming with impressive features. The standout attribute is its remarkable speed, hitting a maximum write speed of 280 MB/s and a read speed of 300 MB/s, as quoted by Nextorage. This makes it ideal for high-resolution photography and 4K and some 8K video recordings.
Another key feature is its high capacity of 128GB, offering ample storage for large files. Furthermore, it’s built for extreme conditions and resistant to X-rays, magnets, shocks, water, and temperature changes.
The card also supports V90 video speed class, enabling sustained video capture rates of 90MB/s. These features make the NX-F2PRO SD card a versatile and high-performing storage solution.
The NX-F2PRO SD Card delivers an impressive performance. It keeps pace without issue when used in my Canon EOS R5 C, Sony A7 III, and Canon EOS R5, indicating that if you have an SD card slot in your camera, then the likelihood is that this card will work absolutely fine.
The card reliably hits near its maximum speed specifications, with real-world tests showing write speeds of 210.1MB/s and read speeds of 256MB/s. Its high-speed capability significantly improves camera performance, especially in the R5, when comparing sequential shooting rates with this card against a standard UHS-I card.
The card also excels in harsh conditions, functioning flawlessly even after exposure to 45ºC heat and -5ºC cold temperatures. Its water resistance claim was also tested, and the card worked fine after being submerged for 48 hours, not quite the quoted 72 hours, and before you ask, yes, I left it to dry out completely before putting it back in the camera.
By the end of the test, the card’s performance stood out. Transfer speeds might not quite have hit the incredible potential speeds offered on the packaging, but I felt that this was due to the MacBooks internal SD reader rather than the card, and those speeds are quoted from lab conditions. Either way, it put in an excellent performance that far outstripped many of its rivals.
The durability was also exceptional with the test seeing the card baked in the sun, frozen and dropped into the water and still surviving. Although non of the above is advisable, it proves that this card isn’t just another cheap SD card but something more, and a card that can be relied on in the long run.
