Best microSD Memory Cards for Surface Pro (Pro 3 to Pro 7) in 2022

The latest Surface Pro 7 brings 10th Gen Intel Core processors and a USB-C port to a device that otherwise remains mostly the same from older models. That means you still have a microSD card reader with support for UHS-I speeds built into the Pro 7, ready to handle a bit of extra storage and quick transfers. If you don't already have one of the best MicroSD cards for the Surface Pro lying around or you want to upgrade, here are our top picks.

If we're picking a microSD card

Adding storage to your Surface Pro 7 doesn't have to happen before checkout. Thanks to the microSD card reader, you can carefully pick the right amount of storage and save a good chunk of money in the process. Even if you have an older Pro model, they should all be compatible with the cards listed above. Still unsure which to grab first? We can make further recommendations.

Samsung's EVO Select (opens in new tab) is a reliable microSD option that comes at a very reasonable price. Thanks to a U3 rating, you get read speeds up to 100 MB/s and write speeds up to 90 MB/s, and you'll only pay about $17 for a 128GB card. You can go up to 512GB, which costs about $90 (opens in new tab). This is ideal if you're planning on only using the microSD card with your Surface Pro, as you're not paying for unnecessary UHS-II performance.

If, however, you do plan on swapping the microSD card between devices that can handle UHS-II performance, Delkin's 1900X (opens in new tab) is an excellent choice. It costs more at about $50 for a 64GB card, but you'll be able to hit up to 300 MB/s read speeds when used with compatible UHS-II devices. Despite its UHS-II classification, it should work fine in your Surface Pro, though at a reduced pace.
