Most microSD cards are perfectly fine for your smartphone. Your dash cam or home security camera, however? That's another story -- that non-stop video recording can be brutal on cards that aren't designed for continuous writing. Enter Samsung with its Pro Endurance card. The new microSD range reportedly endures about 25 times longer than other "speed-focused" cards, handling up to 43,800 hours of 1080p video recording on a 128GB model. That's five years of around-the-clock use, folks. There's a chance your camera stops working before the card does.

All of the cards are water, temperature, magnet and X-ray resistant, and they come with a full-size SD card adapter for cameras and card readers that use the larger format. Samsung is unsurprisingly charging a premium for the Pro Endurance line in its 32GB ($25), 64GB ($45) and 128GB ($90) flavors, but they might save you money in the long run if you don't have to burn through cards like they're going out of style.
