While Samsung micro SD card will come with an adapter to transfer your data. It has also same data writing speed up to 90MB/s that is needed for capturing 3D videos, HD videos, action cam video recording, 3D videos, apps and more.

The only difference between Samsung and Sandisk 16GB card is, you will get a micro sd card adapter for transferring data with Samsung micro SD card.

Most of the Micro sd cards recommended on this web page is officially approved by GoPro website. So you would not have to worry about whether this card will be supported on your GoPro Hero 3 or Hero3 Black. According to us, GoPro Hero 3 supports maximum card size up to 64GB. 128GB card might not be supported for GoPro Hero3. So if you are planning to buy a 128GB memory card for GoPro, make sure you have tested it by borrowing from your friend.
