Samsung 830 Series 128GB Solid State Drive Review

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.

Special thanks to Samsung for providing us with the 830 Series 128GB Solid State Drive to review.

    I can see a glaring error in an otherwise good review – the drive is 128 gigabytes.  There is no ‘loss’ of 9 gigabytes.  It’s the difference between 1000 and 1024.   You even show it in your review – 128,033,222,656 bytes.  That’s 128 industry gigabytes, which translates to 119 ‘real’ gigabytes.

While dribbling, you are able to keep the ball closer to your feet by using the dampening pods up around the front of the boot. Adidas F50 are raised slightly off the boot and are basically padded regions that allow for a softer touch on the ball. The side pass and control pads and the control region serves a valid purpose.
