Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of disposal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

950 PRO NVMe M.2 SSD

Features

Outstanding performance and endurance
The next-generation Samsung SSD 950 PRO delivers exceptional performance for professionals. This innovative V-NAND-based NVMe SSD supports PCI Express® Gen 3 x4 lanes, providing a higher bandwidth and lower latency to process a massive amount more data, compared to previous generations of Samsung SATA SSDs. Presented in a compact M.2 form factor, the future-oriented Samsung SSD 950 PRO is recommended for professionals using high-end PCs and workstations. * PCI Express and PCIe are registered trademarks of PCI-SIG
Level up to unmatched performance, power efficiency and endurance
Experience a next-generation SSD today
Equipped with the bandwidth of the NVMe interface, the Samsung SSD 950 PRO is suitable for intensive workloads, such as computer-aided design, data analysis and engineering simulations. It outperforms Samsung SATA SSDs by over 4.5 times in sequential read and by over 2.5 times in sequential write, delivering speeds of 2,500 MB/s and 1,500 MB/s respectively.* * This reflects the maximum performance of Samsung SSD 950 PRO 512 GB compared to Samsung SSD 850 PRO 512 GB. Results may vary based on the user environment.

Helps save power while maintaining peak performance
If you're in the midst of performing a complex data analysis or engineering simulation on your laptop, you surely don't want to run out your battery. Compared to Samsung SATA SSD power consumption, the Samsung SSD 950 PRO is more power efficient, which helps your battery last longer and maintain superior performance levels. * Based on internal 10GB file power consumption tests using a 512GB capacity Samsung SSD 850 PRO and Samsung SSD 950 PRO. Results may vary based on the user environment. * Based on internal 10GB file power consumption tests using a 512GB capacity 850 PRO and 950 PRO. Results may vary based on the user environment.
Save power while maintaining peak performance
Helps maximize endurance under heavy workloads
The innovative V-NAND technology in the Samsung SSD 950 PRO has high endurance and long lifespan due to its insulators that cause less stress and are highly resistant to wear under heavy client workloads over a 5-year period* (in comparison to traditional 2D planar NAND). The Samsung SSD 950 PRO also features Dynamic Thermal Throttling Protection technology, which controls the temperature of the device to help manage overheating and maintain a high level of sustained performance. * 5 years or TBW (256 GB: 200 TB, 512 GB: 400 TB), whichever comes first.
