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 dispo sal 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.

An essential element for professional computing

As a perfectionist in search of the best performance and with a desire to be among the best in your field, you deserve Samsung’s SSD 840 PRO. The 840 PRO is the fastest and most-reliable SSD on the market - like nothing you’ve seen before. It assures a top-notch user experience, which guarantees better output on your behalf. The 840 PRO is the best choice for professionals looking to supercharge their workflow.

Unrivaled high performance. The top SSD for the top professionals.

Unrivaled high performance. The top SSD for the top professionals.
The Samsung SSD 840 PRO is a high-performance SSD designed for power users. Capable of delivering up to 100,000 IOPS, the 840 PRO offers the ultimate performance for power computing when it matters most. Sophisticated performance enhancing features deliver consistent speed for demanding applications under heavy workloads.

Multi-tasking multiplied. A powerful complement to Windows 8.

Outstanding Multi Tasking Performance : Windows 8’s intuitive new Metro UI encourages multitasking. Samsung’s 840 Series SSD ensures users will experience great, lag-free performance when working with multiple applications. Consistently Fast Boot Time : Worn-in Windows installations must manage a plethora of third-party applications, many of which load instructions at start-up. While an HDD will suffer performance deficits over time, the 840 Series industry-leading Random Read Speeds and Latency time ensure that boot times remain fast even after months of heavy OS use and application installs.

Industry-leading reliability

From the world’s leading storage engineers at the #1 maker of SSD components, Samsung’s SSD 840 Series delivers rock-solid reliability and sustained high performance over time and under heavy use. Additionally, the 840 PRO carries a generous 5-year limited warranty.

A True End-to-End, Integrated Solution

Samsung SSDs are designed completely in-house. To arrive at the perfect solution, Samsung builds all of the main SSD components itself. The result is enhanced performance with Toggle DDR2 NAND flash, lower power consumption with LPDDR2 cache memory, and better energy efficiency with the 3-core MDX controller.

Toggle DDR2 NAND Flash Memory

Samsung’s Toggle DDR2 NAND flash chips enable data transfer rates of up to 400 megabits per second (Mbps)-more than three times as fast as previous chips – offering dramatic read speed performance improvements. In addition to performance improvements, the chips also consume less power than competing NAND.

3-core MDX controller

More powerful and energy-efficient than our previous generation controller, the new Cortex-R4 CPU-based Samsung MDX controller accomplishes more under the same power conditions than the previous-generation MCX controller.

Ultra Low Power Consumption for Longer Battery Life

 Ultra Low Power Consumption for Longer Battery Life
Samsung has made major leaps forward in power efficiency with the 840 Series.  It boasts the lowest idle power consumption of any SSD*, an extremely important achievement considering that SSDs spend a vast majority of their time sitting idle (a positive side-effect of their extremely fast processing speeds). In fact, Samsung's new MDX controller consumes only 40mwatt of power during idle mode - half that of its predecessor and up to 97% less than other SSD controllers. Further improvements come from the use of LPDDR2 cache memory, which offers higher performance while consuming 30% less power when active and 93% less power when idle than regular DDR2 or DDR3 memory. All of this results in an improvement of up to 30 minutes in battery life over the 830 Series, letting you get more out of your mobile experience.
