Introduction

Welcome to Myce’s review of the Samsung 845DC EVO 480GB SATA
Enterprise SSD (hereafter referred to as the 845DC EVO).

These days there is an air of excitement at Myce when we
receive a Samsung SSD for review.  The last Samsung Enterprise SSD we reviewed
was the 845DC PRO, which uses 3D VNAND to deliver class leading random write
intensive performance.

With 845DC EVO Samsung now brings the use of 19nm 3bit TLC NAND
(or 3bit Toggle MLC NAND, as Samsung prefers to call it) to the enterprise
market.  With the 845DC EVO Samsung targets the mixed/read intensive workload
market segment, where low price, excellent read and reasonable write
performance are demanded.  The use of 3bit TLC NAND should give Samsung a
significant price advantage but how will it perform?  Please read this review
to find out.
