  1. So basicly it's the more durable version of the 840 evo much like opertons and xeons are to the FX and core i7 series.
  2. like we know now after the ssd endurance test samsung is the worst enterprise candidate.

    Yes, that's a fair analogy. Just like the Xeon E3-1275v3 is an i7-4770K, but with ECC support.
  4. I've yet to see an SSD fail due to read/write endurance. I only see them fail when the controller gets bugged, which seems to happen all the time, especially on loss of power.
  5. I'm guessing this SSD doesn't have to new firmware code that extends life and speed.
  6. Another win for the EVO. This SSD modified for enterprise workloads makes it a good buy for webservers.

    Hopefully the price will go down after launch, and then I see this being the best choice of webhosts.

    Cheaper and adequate for that workload.
  7. Eh I'll keep my 840 EVO 250GB
  8. "Even still, I wand to commend Samsung's execution." (last page 1st paragraph) I guess that is supposed to be want, unless Drew Riley has become a wizard now :D
  9. Commending their execution would be a bit harsh, don't you think?

    I'm sure worse things were said about Samsung at WWDC '14 yesterday ;)

    Now that you mention it.....
  12. 4KB random write, and average response time.

    Nuff said.

    You'd have to be out your mind to put TLC in a a critical environment.
  13. @eriko everyone's critical environments need a little tender loving care
  14. The 845dc isn't necessarily the "worst enterprise candidate"; for one thing it wasn't the bottom in every test.

    For another, it's more about VALUE and that's the main point of the article. I assume the top SSD's in this category were MLC not TLC and also more expensive.
