Introduction

IMG_3365

Many moons ago there was an article based on solid state memory and how it would change everything we do, if they could get it to work correctly. Many were amazed at the thought of drives having no moving parts, a major reduction in size and energy consumption. There were many factors that prevented these early SSDs from being a viable replacement to platter drives, MTBF, speed, capacity and of course cost being the most prominent. Since that time we have seen an explosion of manufacturers, capacities, NAND technology advancements and a historic plummet in pricing per GB. Samsung has been at the forefront of NAND development, manufacturing processes and sells of enterprise and consumer grade drives.
