Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced memory technology, today announced its new lineup of high-performance SSDs designed for use in personal computers. The new series supporting SATA 6.0 gigabit-per-second (Gb/s) interface comes in two tracks; one for general computing purposes and another, an advanced lineup dubbed ‘PRO’ for serious users.
Samsung’s tiered offering for professional and general user environments provides consumers a broader choice of SSDs to best suit their personal requirements.
It appears that Samsung will launch the successor to their very popular Galaxy S3 smartphone at Mobile World Congress in February. We assume this will be to counter the sales of the recently released Apple iPhone 5. According to a source within Samsung the new phone will be announced a MWC 2013 in February and get an official release date in March.
Samsung has just launched the Galaxy Player 5.8. If you can guess by the name it features a 5.8-inch (960×540) display. 5.8-inches is quite large, it makes the Galaxy S III’s 4.8-inch screen look small! The Galaxy Player 5.8 will be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as well as the latest version of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.
Samsung are well known as manufacturers of consumer televisions, laptops and other electronics. Samsung’s SSDs have been gathering traction and some rave reviews across the industry, and also picking up steam are Samsung’s offerings to the memory sector. Available in 2GB or 4GB DIMMs, with kits available for 4GB, 8GB and in some locations, 16GB, Samsung have something available for every user. Rated at 1600Mhz at only 1.35v, the kit is designed to fit into the low voltage/green market segment. With stock timings of 11-11-11-28, these kits aren’t aimed at the performance consumer.. but knowing that these DIMMs also support higher voltages, lets see how far we can push them, shall we?
When it comes to SATA 6GB/s solid state drives or solid state drives in general there are a few names that come to mind, OCZ, Kingston and Patriot are just a few but Samsung is not really one of the them. For the consumer market Samsung gave us the 470 series drive and now they have entered the SATA 6GB/s segment with the 830 series. What is interesting about this drive is that it uses Samsung’s own controller, NAND and DRAM. Something we have not seen on any solid state drive that we have reviewed. The 830 series has rated speeds of 520MB/s read and 320MB/s write. Let’s see how this drive stacks up against other SATA 6GB/s drives that we have tested.
Samsung is not really a name many people consider when it comes to solid state drives, but maybe people should. Today we are unboxing their 830 Series solid state drive that is built on all Samsung Parts. It is running Samsung’s own 3-core ARM-based processor, Samsung’s own cache chip and of course Samsung’s own flash memory. Because Samsung is using their own parts they not only have full control over the operation of the drive, but they also can keep costs down because they control the demand of their own parts. Oh did I mention this drive is only 7mm thin? Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video!
This year at CES we decided to venture into the Samsung booth, which was one of the busiest booths at CES. We were able to take a look at the new Galaxy Note, which is a mix between a phone and a tablet. It features a very thin design, 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED screen and a 1.4GHz dual core processor. Samsung was also showing off the new Galaxy Tab 7.7 tablet. It is the worlds first tablet to feature the Samsung’s Super AMOLED Plus display technology. Finally we were able to check out Samsung’s SSD 830 solid state drives.
Sleek design, fast processor, full featured and a long battery, yeah right? Well Samsung didn’t think it wasn’t possible so they pushed the envelope and made such a good phone that all 4 of the major US providers wanted a bite. The Samsung Galaxy S lives in its own class of Smartphone. It’s the first phone to feature Samsungs’ Super AMOLED screen which is on another level compared to all screen types. The phones feature Android 2.1 and were recently updated to 2.2 Froyo. The phone also sports Samsungs 1Ghz Hummingbird Processor so you know it packs a punch. Even though the heart is the same in everyone one of these beasts the limbs are very much different. Today I hope to break this down for you so you can choose exactly what galaxy to visit.
When people think of manufacturers who make compact digital cameras, few will probably think of Samsung. Though recently, it seems Samsung has been building more photographic equipment, and been doing a great job of it too. The latest compact digital camera from Samsung to reach the market is the EX1. With its compact metal body, an impressive F1.8-2.4 optical zoom lens capable of 24mm at the wide-angle and an articulated screen, it looks like Samsung is serious about their cameras.
We have taken a look at a few digital camcorder’s here at ThinkComputers. It was just a few years ago that many camcorders you would find in the store still used tapes. Tapes were very annoying to work with, you had to playback video and import it via firewire in most cases. With digital camcorders you are able to record right to built in memory or removable memory like a flash card. Today we will be taking a look at the Samsung SC-MX20E digital camcorder that features 16GB a built-in memory, 34x optical zoom, a 2.7-inch LCD and small form factor. Let’s see if it’s the right digital camcorder for you! Special thanks to Geeks.com for providing us with the Samsung SC-MX20E Digital Camcorder to review. Geeks.com is a great place to find Refurbished Camcorders.
