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.

N2O for your laptop

It's like pumping N2O through your laptop....thing thing just flies.....everthing works as it should...booting up, launching apps..moving files...replaced my existing Intel X-25M and so far i'm very impressed.

Just wish the laptop had SATA III - restricted to SATA II at moment and its fast...can't wait for a better controller in PC.

Customer Friendly SSD

Samsung Magician software is constantly updated and very customer friendly to use, appealing to all levels of customer technical expertise from inexperienced to "expert".

In operation, the SAMSUNG SSD outperformed several of my own tests of read and write speeds for other vendors competitive offerings. At the time, Samsung was more expensive than competitor products. I bought Samsung. System boot times were incredibly fast.

Samsung 840 Pro 512 GB review

Samsung backs this MLC-based drive with a 5-year warranty, although platform support is resolutely limited to Windows. It's possible to adjust over-provisioning using the SSD Magician for Windows software, as well as run rudimentary benchmark tests.
