    "Way better than your typical free cloud-based photo managing solution. I had trouble finding a photo managing software package that did everything until I tried this. I am an amateur photographer and this checks all the boxes for me."

    "I bought the Samsung 64GB MicroSDXC EVO for my GoPro HERO5 Black and am pleased with its performance. I'm getting relatively fast speeds and that's just what I was hoping for, especially at this cheap price point. I've had the card for more than a month now so I'll likely be picking up another one for my Chromebook soon."

    "Most of the cameras don't support "micro SD cards", instead, they support "SD cards", but if you got a camera, you know that already. The thing is, the card itself (especially micro sd card) is not a solution when you want to transfer pictures to your computer simply because Personal Computers (excluding laptops) don't have SD card slots. The item you need for that procedure is a USB card reader and not a card itself, let alone an unsupported micro SD one. "
