Notebook

A laptop, also called a notebook, is a personal computer for mobile use. A laptop integrates most of the typical components of a desktop computer, including a display, a keyboard, a pointing device (a touchpad, also known as a trackpad, and/or a pointing stick) and speakers into a single unit. A laptop is powered by mains electricity via an AC adapter, and can be used away from an outlet using a rechargeable battery.

Workstations

A workstation is a high-end microcomputer designed for technical or scientific applications. Intended primarily to be used by one person at a time, they are commonly connected to a local area network and run multi-user operating systems. The term workstation has also been used to refer to a mainframe computer terminal or a PC connected to a network.

Read transfer speed
i

Read transfer speed

Data transfer rate or just transfer rate is the average number of bits, characters, or blocks per unit time passing between equipment in a data transmission system.

Transfer rates can serve several functions. The response time can help a network administrator pinpoint where slowdowns and potential hangups exist in a network. By analyzing data transfer rates and adjusting accordingly as a preventative measure, a system can be made more efficient and will be more prepared to handle extra bandwidth constraints in times of heavy usage.

Testing mechanisms such as fiber optic loopbacks can assist in measuring and conducting data transfer tests.

Random 4k Read

Random 4k Read IOPS:Average number of random read I/O operations per second

IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second, pronounced i-ops) is a common performance measurement used to benchmark computer storage devices like hard disk drives (HDD), solid state drives (SSD), and storage area networks (SAN). As with any benchmark, IOPS numbers published by storage device manufacturers do not guarantee real-world application performance.

TRIM Support
i

TRIM Support

In computing, a TRIM command allows an operating system to inform a solid-state drive (SSD) which blocks of data are no longer considered in use and can be wiped internally. While TRIM is frequently spelled in capital letters, it is not an acronym; it is merely a command name.
TRIM was introduced soon after SSDs started to become an affordable alternative to traditional hard disks. Because low-level operation of SSDs differs significantly from traditional hard disks, the typical way in which operating systems handle operations like deletes and formats (not explicitly communicating the involved sectors/pages to the underlying storage medium) resulted in unanticipated progressive performance degradation of write operations on SSDs. TRIM enables the SSD to handle garbage collection overhead, that would otherwise significantly slow down future write operations to the involved blocks, in advance.

AES encryption

AES encryption

In cryptography, the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is an encryption standard adopted by the U.S. government. The standard comprises three block ciphers, AES-128, AES-192 and AES-256, adopted from a larger collection originally published as Rijndael.

Power consumption (standby)

In electrical engineering, power consumption refers to the electrical energy over time that must be supplied to an electrical appliance to maintain its operation. The power consumption is usually a result of power used to perform the intended function of the device plus additional "wasted" power that is dissipated as heat, vibration and/or electromagnetic waves.

Edition 08/2014- Die Samsung 850 Pro ist nicht besonders günstig in der Anschaffung, mehr als 300 Euro sind kein Schnäppchen. Ist man jedoch bereit diesen Preis aufzubringen, wird man es in keinem Fall bereuen. Die Leistung ist sehr hoch, der Funktionsumfang toll und auch zeigt die Festplatte eine enorme Ausdauer. Zudem ist auch die 10-jährige Garantie positiv zu nennen.more

Edition 05/2016 - In der Klasse der SSDs ab 480 GB stellt die Samsung 850 Pro den Branchen-Primus dar. Die SSD mit 512 GB ist sehr schnell unterwegs in allen Belangen, sowohl beim Lesen als auch beim Schreiben von Daten ist sie eine prima Wahl, wobei sie auch Programmstarts spürbar schneller macht. Sie wird mit Software ausgeliefert, Zubehör für den Einbau gibt es ansonsten jedoch nicht. Die geringe Wärmeentwicklung steht wiederum auf der Habenseite.

This SSD was used to replace the hard drive of a Lenovo W520. I knew a clean windows install was the easiest option but this was a work laptop, so i had many programs that i didn't want to reinstall. I made a sensitive data backup to a company cloud and a personal drive. The software, if lost, could anyways be reinstalled from our cloud, but i wanted to save time. So here it goes: direct (or online: all drives connected with running windows 7) cloning did not work no matter what i tried. To make it short, this worked: basically an offline (unmounted) clone using Macrium Reflect (free version). First i made a drive image while logged to windows 7, and saved this image to a personal usb hdd. Then i swapped the drive from the W520 for this new SSD, and booted to a Macrium boot cd. On this CD operating system with Macrium Reflect, I format the new SSD and start the cloning by reading the HDD image from the usb drive. Worked perfect, minor software things to fix after the laptop detected a new drive. Re-run the computer performance rating, and the hard disk score went up from 5.2 to 7.9. Blazing fast, programs are ready to go faster than the time i need to click them all open.
Notes: I did *not* activate RAPID mode, it depends on RAM to store data, therefore a power loss would mean absolute loss of recently created data. I need reliability for work, i'm already riding the cheetah, no need to ride the thunder. (some tests show RAPID increase overall velocity by 2x). Also i keep my original drive exactly as before, just in case anything fails, but i don't think it will, the 3D-VNAND seems to be a very reliable technology. I keep new important files synced to the company cloud.

Sehr schnelle SSD, wurde problemlos erkannt von Mainboard ASUS Z97PRO (WiFi ac). Installation von Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit war nach wenigen Minuten erledigt. Mal sehen, wie das mit den 10 Jahren Garantie so läuft ...

Diese SSD macht alte Laptops wieder fit und man spart sich dadurch das Geld für einen neuen Laptop

Ich bin super zufrieden mit dieser SSD. Endlich macht arbeiten am Laptop wieder Spass. Vorher brauchte mein 6 Jähriger Laptop (Sony VGN-NW21ZF) 10 min bis ich damit arbeiten konnte und jetzt dauert das Hochfahren des Laptops, Passworteingabe, Starten von Outlook, neue E-Mail anwählen nur noch 33 Sekunden! :-)more
