Performance is very good with write performance not much worse than the prebious SLC drives,
#2

#3

Im not sure about the average lifespan, but there are tweaks for Windows to extend the life of the drives (stop most of windows random writes).

This can be used as a desktop drive, you just need a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter. Standard Sata and power connectors.

Thanks for the quick reply +rep added.

Good price for a solid state drive. Great for those people who absolutely must have shock proof drives.

Samsung MLC drives supposedly have 1,000,000 hours MTBF, compred to the 2,000,000 for the SLC drives.

http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/products/flash/ssd/2008/down/SATA_3.0Gbps_MLC.pdf

But more technically they difference is around 10,000 write cycles to 100,000 write cycles.

10,000 write cycles equates to writing 640TiB of data to the hard drive. Something very few people will do. I reckon only servers which constantly write to the hard drive would achieve this (the market SLC drives are actually marketed at). Intel for example are willing to give a 3 year warranty on MLC drives.

Remeber to turn off any automatic degragmentation procedures.

Or just some tape and stick it to the side of the case :p.

Hi, Cannot see a problem with this. Upgraded a Mac Mini with an SSD replacing the 2.5" Hard Disk Drive that was fitted and OS installation was not problematic. Ensure that you are not voiding the warranty though.

Hope this is of some help.

Hi,

Think that the read/write is quicker however have literally only just replaced the 2.5" hard disk drive that was installed. Power consumption was the main reason behind wanting to fit one of these SSD hard disk drives followed closely with the hope that the OS would load a whole lot quicker and perform more responsively / less sluggishly (in fairness it's meeting these criteria from what I've gathered).

Not that the 2.5" hard disk drive was noisy in the first place but there's hardly any noise at all now only a faint noise from the fan that is fitted and this is very quiet.

Hope this is of some help.

Hi, All that you need is a 2.5" External Hard Disk Drive Enclosure the same as a non-Solid State equivalent uses as the dimensions of these are the same.

Here's an offering from Aria for example:-

http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Drive+Bays/External+(For+SATA+Drive)/Arianet+Premium+Aluminium+SATA+2.5%22+Hard+Drive+enclosure+?productId=34906

Hope this is of some help.

Thanks Newbie2linux.. But I was after Enclosure for SSD disks.. As they are smaller in size and a lot slimmer..So its a waste putting them in 2.5" enclosure.

Hi, Thank you for your reply however IMHO this is not true. The dimensions of these offerings from Novatech are identical to a SATA hard disk drive removed from both a Mini ITX 3688 Case and a Mac Mini for upgrading. Are you not getting these confused with 1.8" hard disk drives?

Best Regards.

[FONT="Verdana"]I think perhaps he's thinking about the PCI-E SSDs but could be wrong.

No, they are exactly the same size as standard 2.5" Laptop Hard Drives !

Plenty of stock on these now @ Novatech

How long a warranty do Samsung provide on these? And do they come in a retail box or as OEM bare drive?
