Yea, I no where close to being a mathmetician, but it is the difference in how manufactirers size Hard Drives and how computers size them. At least that was my take.

For those who have not kept up with this test: to show how fast the Samsung can write, the Knigston and the Intel 320 began this test on 5/16, The Samsung began on 6/28 and has already passed the Kingston and will soon pass the 320 unless it dies first.

That's what I think. But, the guy running the tests on the Samsung said it could write half its capacity (32GB) every day for 5 years and never slow down.

He wrote something about the write amplification may be a factor in it's life span.
I'm not up to speed on write amplification, so will have to go with the SSD Guru's on that site.

I think the controller may fail before the nand.

I don't understand a lot of what they say on that site. They've forgotten more than I'll ever know.

mundane question

perfect question for a blue Monday :

I don't have a good grasp of SATA III backward compatibility. I want to drop a SSD in a 5 year old Cpq laptop [c306us] which has SATA controller [intel i94x chipset] - I assume it is SATA 1 but since the mftrs usually don't list with such precision someone may correct me.
Anyway, will I get lousy performance with a new SATA III SSD ??
and/or - is there some factor at work here that would make one SSD more suitable than another vis backward-compatibility??

thanx all... I love this forum

Backward comatable simply means that it will run on sataII or sataI. However if you hook it up to a SATAII port, you will not get the advertised sataIII speed, you will get sataII speed. That being the case, in my opinion, if you have sataI or sata II I would not pay for a sataIII drive. I would just get a sataII drive. However, If you get a sataIII it will still work just not at sataIII speeds. Either way, it will work faster than a mechanical hard drive. Your performance will improve.

I agree with Essenbe, however, if you are planning to upgrade your PC in the not to distant future, you can get the SataIII SSD now, and get whatever speed it is capable of now. Then take advantage of the Sata III speeds when you transfer it to your new PC.
