Great Revision SSD

Posted

Pros: Very fast. Samsung makes all components. Looks nice. Comes with mount, software, and free game.

Cons: A bit expensive considering it only nudges out the Vertex 3 by a little.

This was my first SSD, and I've not been disappointed by it. The first thing that caught my attention was that Samsung makes all of the components included in this SSD. From the DRAM, to the NAND, and the controller. It's a revision of their 470 series. With the 830 you get a single 250MB DDR2-800 DRAM chip (K4T2G314QF-MCF7) for caching, compared to the two 125MB chips in the 470. The 830 also has a 6GB/s throughput for SATA.

Samsung 830 128GB SSD

Posted

Pros: Very fast, Reliable, Looks great

Cons: None at all.

This SSD ships with a three year warranty, though it's very unlikely it will be needed. The SSD is a 2.5" 7mm slim form factor, maximizing mounting options, whether it be a desktop PC or laptop. It comes with a 128GB capacity with 119GB usable. With read/write speeds at 520MB/s / 320MB/s respectively, this is one fast drive. We have random read/write speeds of 75K/30K IOPS. This SSD has a power consumption of 0.15w~ It used a standard high speed Sata 6gbps connection. The SSD casing is plastic, with...

Great product

Posted

Pros: Speed, reliability.

Cons: Price

As my first SSD, I was pleasantly surprised by it's performance. Even though it was a little more expensive than the Crucial M4, I decided to give it a try. The SSD offers great speeds, both in read and write. I use it as an OS drive and everything loads instantly. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a solid SSD that offers speed and reliability.

Cant beat the deal

Posted

Pros: Really fast boot, Great speeds, Free Game, free Norton Ghost

Cons: N/A

***This is for the Laptop review; same thing, different bracket*** Great speeds, it comes with a $50 game, a $20 copy of Norton Ghost and a $10 cable that turns the old drive into a portable external ; so price comes down to $120 for a great 128GB SSD.
