Samsung SSD 845DC EVO/PRO Performance Preview & Exploring IOPS Consistency

 

Traditionally Samsung's enterprise SSDs have only been available to large server OEMs (e.g. Dell, EMC, and IBM). In other words, unless you were buying tens of thousands of drives, Samsung would not sell you any. This is a rather common strategy in the...

Samsung 845DC EVO 480GB review

 

An enterprise-class SSD with a hefty price

Excellent endurance ; High sequential read speeds ; Five-year warranty

High pricing for a TLC drive ; Only middling sequential write speeds ; Not the best choice for a home PC

For business deployment, the 845DC EVO delivers superfast read performance and truly extraordinary longevity.

Fast drives, none DOA, price when compared to other enterprise/server SSD's, works with existing SAS/SATA controller in server

Lower rated write endurance than some other drives. Took off an egg for this, but time will tell if it was even a factor
