Samsung 830 Series SSD 512 GB

22 August 2012
  • Summary: Samsung's 830 Series SSD left me very impressed. The drive doesn't use any of the well-known controllers like SandForce or Marvell, but comes with Samsung's own controller design instead. This doesn't have to be a bad thing; on the contrary, the 830 doesn't come with the load of issues that are unique to Marvell/Indilinx or SandForce.
  • Pros: Very high performance, 7 mm thick, Ultrabook ready, SATA 6 Gbps support, Rich bundle, Supports TRIM, 3-year warranty
  • Cons: Relatively high price, Warranty could be longer, Needs a SATA 6 Gbps controller to perform best

Samsung 830 Series SSD Review

14 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Samsung is kind of a big deal. In addition to manufacturing everything from tablets to televisions to turbines, the Korean giant is one of the world’s largest producers of DRAM and NAND flash memory, and it has long provided SSDs to OEMs and systems integrators. Samsung entered the retail SSD market in late 2010, with its 470 Series SSD delivering performance on par with the first-gen SandForce drives that owned the top end of the market.
  • Pros: Blazing fast, especially in sustained writes; sleek and attractive; comes with a full copy of Norton Ghost.
  • Cons: Can't match SandForce for 4k random IOPS.

Samsung 830 Series 512GB SSD Review

27 September 2011
  • Summary: Real-world application testing was also a mixed bag. Windows boot times, multi-tasking tests, and gaming level load times all appeared average, but the Samsung 830 Series excelled when copying data not just to and from the drive but also across it.

Recensione: Samsung 830 Series 256GB su MacBook Pro 2012, velocità a robustezza a buon prezzo

29 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Conclusioni / Costi Il Samsung 830 è uno dei dischi che più ci piace di questi tempi. Le motivazioni sono molteplici: prezzo molto competitivo, performance di alto profilo, ampissima compatibilità anche con controller datati ed alta affidabilità (mai sentito di neanche una unità difettosa). L'unico aspetto che poteva sollevare qualche dubbio in ambiente Mac è legato al Garbage Collector.
  • Pros: SSD SATA3 6Gb/s con perfetta retro-compatibilità SATAII, Prestazioni da primato in lettura, un po' inferiori in scrittura, Prezzi concorrenziali, Alta affidabilità, Unità molto sottile, aumenta la possibilità di areazione, I componenti dell'830 sono presenti nativamente nei Mac più recenti

  • Conclusion: Samsungs neue SSD stürmt mit Top-Performance an die Spitze der Bestenliste. Besonders die fantastischen Zugriffszeiten sorgen dafür, dass sie sich von der starken Konkurrenz absetzt. Auch die Transferraten können sich sehen lassen und liegen auf dem gleichen Niveau wie die besten SSDs mit Sandforce-Controller, die bislang unsere SSD-Rangliste dominierten.
  • Pros: Extrem schnell, Super Zugriffszeiten, Starke Transferraten, Dedizierter Cache
  • Cons: Vergleichweise hoher Stromverbrauch
