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.

You will not believe how fast your computer runs after replacing a mechanical hard drive with this SSD. First of all it is so light; kinda of like anover sized credit card.
Install it and see how fast it is. My computer boots in about 12 seconds! Opening programs is almost instantaneous. The only thing I can advise is don't bother installing the software from the CD. Just grab the latest version from their website. Nice work Samsung!!!Show more +
The performace is great
This drive installed with no problem, using the software to copy the existing drive and changed it in 30 minutes, windows boots in 6 seconds.
as soon after cloning this ssd, it booted up so quickly. this is my third Samsung ssd.
These SSDs are great.
I have two of these drives installed in an HP Envy 17 3D notebook running Windows 8.0 Pro. I usually try to buy the best products of this type whenever I upgrade.
I hesitantly purchased the EVO instead of the higher rated PRO version only because Samsung had recently released them and used their 840 label. I couldn't believe they would take a chance with this product in such a hot market. I chose wisely. These drives are fast (Sata III) and work with my HP notebook perfectly - confirmed 6Gb. All of my testing software confirms this is one fast setup. It was the best upgrade I've done, I feel I've gotten another 3 years of life out of my 2 year old notebook. I bought two of the 500Gb notebook SSD configurations. I thought that I probably did not need the second notebook version except for the spacer; I probably could have by with some kind of padding but I didn't want to have any problems. All I wound up using from the notebook kits was the spacers. It turned out that I couldn't use the USB3->sata adapter afterall since I decided to install the drives as a raid configuration. I had to do the installation the old-fashioned way... back up and then restore. That worked without an issue. I would have preferred seeing a full description of the 3 various SSD kits. I only have one issue with the package, the Magician utility does not work with raid. I bought 2 500Gb drives and hooked them up as a raid 0 device. Everything else works fine, except their utility. I'm sure it is only a matter of time before they fully support raid (famous last words). Good job Samsung, I would do it again!Show more +
Samsung 840 EVO SSD 750GB review
A cracking SSD, both speed and huge capacity at a reasonable price
Samsung 840 EVO 750GB review
Three-layer cell (TLC) NAND flash can be a useful compromise to increase storage capacities and lower costs. But the 3-bit version of multi-layer cell (MLC) flash has an intrinsically slower write speed and shorter overall lifespan.
