Samsung 845DC EVO SSD Review: 3-Bit MLC Hits The Enterprise

Results: Sequential Performance

The sequential results aren't much different than our previous tests. Write performance is decidedly middle-of-the-road, while read performance is class-leading. When Samsung said it was going after the read-heavy enterprise space, the company wasn't kidding.

    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.

    Yes, that's a fair analogy. Just like the Xeon E3-1275v3 is an i7-4770K, but with ECC support.

    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.

    I'm guessing this SSD doesn't have to new firmware code that extends life and speed.

    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.

    "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

    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 ;)
