This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
SSD. Cool. Quiet. FAST!.
6 of these running in a RAID-0 configuration in a Dell PowerEdge T620 configured with 512KB blocks over VMFS transferred at 24Gbps. Yeah... I've tried to make it say something else. It seems accurate. Even up to 4 GB transfer....
It's an SSD and will die sooner than later... And when it does, it's not going to be fun (200GB SQL database). Hopefully no corruption!
I wish this came with flush screws and 3.5" conversion rails which aligned the interface exactly the way it should in a 3.5" drive caddy. Not to worry, a trip to ALTEX yeilded a 10$ solution.
