June 12th, 2014 by Adam Armstrong

The SanDisk Ultra Plus SD memory card is a small step up from their Ultra memory card. Available in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB, the SanDisk Ultra Plus memory card boasts of speeds “twice as fast as ordinary SDHC cards;” claiming read speeds of 40MB/s. It is ideal for taking pictures and recording in full HD, while maintaining a budget-oriented approach. The SanDisk Ultra Plus is compatible with SDHC/SDXC enabled and SDHC-I/SDXC-I UHS-I enabled devices.

SanDisk Ultra Plus SD Memory Card Review (32GB)

The SanDisk Ultra Plus memory card is aimed at enthusiasts using compact-to-midrange point-and-shoot digital cameras and camcorders. With the speeds advertised, users will be able to quickly take pictures and transfer files. Being fairly rugged (the device is waterproof, shock-proof, x-ray-proof, and extreme temperature proof), and having a low price point, the SanDisk Ultra Plus is ideal for the those taking lots of pictures or videos on the go but don’t quite need the benefits of the Pro line of cards. The SanDisk Ultra Plus 32GB Memory card comes with a limited lifetime warranty and a street price of ?25.

  • Form Factor:
    • SDHC 16GB & 32GB
    • SDXC 64GB & 128GB

Design and build

The SanDisk Ultra Plus memory cards appear like most other standard size SD cards. It has a black casing and a white sticker on the front indicating speed, class and capacity. There is a line to write the contents of the card on the front, and there is a lock on the side to prevent accidental overwriting.

The gold pins used to transfer data are on the back on the card, along with the serial number at the the bottom of the card.

Performance

In this review we tested the 32GB memory card, and we will include the following comparables with their respective advertised performance numbers:

Using our Consumer Testing Platform, we measured transfer speeds from the 32GB SanDisk Ultra Plus memory card, which gave us sequential speeds of 46.6MB/s read and 11.8MB/s write; the memory card came in above the claimed speeds. The EVO had speeds of 44.6MB/s read and 19.0MB/s write, which were right on par with the SanDisk Ultra Plus. It was slower than the retiring Samsung Plus, which had sequential speeds of 70.00MB/s read, while write activity hit 19.82MB/s. Switching to random large-block transfers, we measured slower speeds at 43.03MB/s read and 3.87MB/s write. These were much lower than the Samsung cards on the write side; the EVO had 44.0MB/s read and an impressive 31.6MB/s write and the Samsung Plus had random large-block transfer speeds measured at 66.13MB/s read and 19.71MB/s write.

We’ve also begun measuring random 4K IOPS performance for those evaluating cards for embedded systems. The SanDisk Ultra Plus SD posted 411IOPS read and 336IOPS write.

Conclusion

The SanDisk Ultra Plus memory card ranges in capacity from 16GB to 128GB. It is durable, has a low price point and comes with a lifetime warranty. It is ideal for those who use compact-to-midrange point-and-shoot digital cameras and camcorders.

The SanDisk Ultra Plus performed well in sequential speeds but gave up quite a bit to Samsung in random large-block writes. Sequential speeds were above where SanDisk claimed: 46.6MB/s read and 11.8MB/s write vs. 40MB/s read and “write speed lower.” Ultimately for the target sequential workload the card did what was advertised and should be more than sufficient for budget-oriented workloads that need a bit more grunt power than true low-end commodity flash.

Pros

  • Low price point
  • Durable
  • Lifetime warranty

Cons

  • Low random large-block write speeds

The Bottom Line

The SanDisk Ultra Plus is a durable memory card, with a low price point and lifetime warranty, perfect for mainstream users who use compact-to-midrange point-and-shoot digital cameras and camcorders.

Roku Streaming Stick 2016 review:

If I could only recommend one device for streaming video today, it would be the new Roku Streaming Stick. At £50 it’s one of the least expensive home video devices you can buy. It’s also one of the best. Roku is the king of streaming, with more worthwhile apps than anybody else. Its search runs circles around the competition, hitting most major services and presenting the results by price. And I like its interface better too, with its full customization giving the power to arrange the apps you want, where you want them. The old Roku Stick1 was my favorite device of its kind, mainly because it offered the cheapest way to get Roku’s service. I also loved the tiny design, allowing it to be tucked up behind a TV, out of sight, or even slipped into a pocket for easy portability. But I always found it too slow to respond, especially with complex apps.

The new version — available for sale as of April 20 — is much faster, just as speedy in everyday use as the Roku 22 and Roku 33 boxes, and feels as responsive as any modern streaming device. It lacks the headphone4 jack and voice search found on the Roku 3’s remote, but you can use both of those features via Roku’s app on your phone, and they work great. Is there any reason not to buy the Roku Stick? Maybe if you’re perfectly happy with your current streamer. Or you don’t mind paying extra for that fancy Roku 3 remote, or you want the 4K streaming available on the Roku 45. If you have a bunch of stuff on iTunes6 or want to play phone or tablet7 games on the big screen, get an Apple TV8. If you really love using your phone instead of a dedicated remote, or want to put video from your computer on your TV, go with a Chromecast9. There are a few other good reasons to buy something other than a Roku10, but most are corner cases or involve streaming “files” on your home network. Streaming video is more popular than ever, and the new Roku Stick is simply the best device at the best price for pretty much all of your streaming needs.

Small is beautiful (and fast)

If you think there must be some benefit to the larger size of a device like the Roku 2, let me disabuse you of that notion. The only advantage the £70 Roku 2 box has over the £50 Stick is a wired Ethernet connection. If you have wired Internet near your TV, and especially if your home Wi-Fi network isn’t great, then you might want to get a box instead. In my testing on a couple of Wi-Fi networks the Stick worked flawlessly. It connected to both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks without any problem, and served up video with no delays. As expected video took a second or two to ramp up to full quality, but that’s normal for streamers, and the Stick performed just as well as any other in this area. I could quibble that it doesn’t support the fastest “ac” Wi-Fi standard, like the Roku 4 and Chromecast do, but it worked great nonetheless.

The new Stick is fast. Roku says it’s eight times faster than the old (2014) Stick, thanks to a new quad-core processor. I performed a couple of speed tests between the Sticks (old and new), the Roku 2 and the Amazon Fire TV Stick11. The new Stick launched apps much faster than the old one and at basically the same speed as the Roku 2, and beat the Amazon stick handily. It moved smoothly through the menus — better than the other two sticks — and responded quickly to other remote commands.

The new Stick also boots faster, which is nice if you plan to connect it to the USB port on your TV for power. It took about 28 seconds to power up, besting the Chromecast (35 seconds) and both the old Roku stick and the Fire TV stick (which both took more than a minute). I still recommend pluggin the new Stick into AC power using the included adapter, to avoid any bootup time at all.

The Stick will fit fine into the HDMI ports of most TVs, but not all. If the port you want to use is recessed, the length of the Stick, plus the power cable, plus the HDMI jack itself might be too much. You’ll need about 3.75 inches. If your TV’s connection is too tight you might have to use a “port saver,” which is basically a short female-to-male HDMI extension cable. Amazon includes one in the box with its streaming stick, but Roku does not. Meanwhile the new Chromecast’s clever design, with its built-in floppy cable, obviates the issue entirely.

Also notable is that the device even has a remote. To be clear, you can set it aside and use only the remote app on your iPhone or Android phone instead. But I mostly love the basic design of the simple clicker (identical to that of previous Roku models) for navigating the onscreen menu and basic transport controls. And, because it’s not an infrared remote, it doesn’t need to be pointed at anything — it works via a form of Wi-Fi as long as it’s in the same room.
