Take a Look Inside the Lexar Quality Labs
Looking at an SD card or card reader, it's hard to imagine all of the work that goes into making sure they're ready to go out the door. Thanks to a video posted earlier this week by Lexar, we no longer have to imagine.
The video starts out with the stuff you'd expect to see. People put cards into cameras to make sure it all works. They test all the major manufacturers and pop the cards into DSLRs, point-and-shoot cameras and even videocameras.
But then it gets really cool. They test the cards in extreme hot and cold temperatures. They drop them, shake them and bend them. And they even shock them with electricity.
Check out the Lexar Quality Labs video on YouTube. It's just under two minutes long, but it's very cool.
