Angelbird Introduces World’s First 1TB V60 SD Card

Angelbird has announced the largest SD Card on the market, a V60 1TB model. Ideal for 4K video and 4K Raw recording, the Angelbird AV Pro V60 1TB U3 Class 10 card has received a V60 certification by the SD Association, which promises speeds of at least 60MB/s.

But Angelbird takes things even further, with the Angelbird AV Pro V60 1TB card boasts a maximum read-write speed of up to 160 MB/S and 280 MB/s respectively, although the sustained write speed is more likely 140 MB/s.

However, Angelbird has designed the card to take advantage of their “Stable Stream technology” which the company says supports delivering optical speed, performance, and reliability.

The card has been tested in harsh conditions and is built to protect from shock, X-Ray, moisture, and extreme temperatures between -13 to 185 degrees Fahrenheit (-25 and 85 degrees celsius). Angelbird has also published a comprehensive camera compatibility chart, which outlines what cameras work best with the new cards. The chart can be accessed at the Angelbird product site.

The 1TB card is available at a retail price of $299, and joins the 512GB, 256GB, 128GB, and 64GB options that are already available. This card is expected to ship by the end of August.

In addition, Angelbird has also a faster 512GB V90 AV Pro SD card. With write speeds of up to 300 MB/s, the V90 AV Pro claims sustained write speeds of 260 MB/s and has been tested to identical extremes as the V60 AVPro. The retail price of the 512GB V90 AV Pro SD card is $599, and is shipping within 48 hours of ordering.

Both cards come with Angelbird’s Data Recovery Service, which ensures the recovery of media files in the event of data or file corruption. The three-year protection service is provided free of charge, and Angelbird also has a non-disclosure agreement that guarantees the privacy and confidentiality of the media content that is recovered.

To activate the protection, users simply send an email to [email protected] with the card serial number and a description of what went wrong. Angelbird will then reply with the next steps to begin the recovery process.

Presumably, this boils down to sending Angelbird the corrupted card and then employing a series of data recovery tools to correct the problem.

Usually, Angelbird says a problem boils down to a firmware issue with the camera, but the company prefers to walk with customers on the file recovery journey, rather than leaving them alone to try a self-service recovery option which could cause further damage. That’s standing behind your product.
