Samsung 845DC EVO SSD 480GB – Micromart Magazine

By | Blog | No Comments

What’s critical to understand about these IOPS figures, compared with many that are quoted on SSDs, is that this drive will sustain these levels indefinitely and not just over the short benchmark sprint. That’s not bad, especially when you combine it with a MTFB of two million hours, and TBW of 300 TBW (terabytes written) with a five year warranty.

Build a silent PC Feature

A solid-state drive is rapidly becoming the best choice for data storage. Rather than a thick collection of noisy spinning discs, the 840 Evo’s solid-state technology is quieter and quicker than a classic HDD. This one’s available in a number of
capacities, but the 120GB model will set you back about £65. If you’re looking for many more terabytes, you may want to check out Samsung’s 850 Pro line – if price is no issue, of course.
