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.

Not Supported in Linux

Works well under windows, but no management software available for Linux, performance is bad when compared to windows.

Boy is it fast!

My Macbook pro started to slow down, especially when I used Windows in Vmware. Evening the boot process just got too slow that I have to wait up to aminute before I could start using the computer woken up from sleep mode.

I got a great deal on the SSD and install it with ease. There has been a world of a difference in the computer booting up from sleep/shutdown and I could not be happier. I can now work in Vmware with windows with great ease. Even the Windows 7 boots up so much more faster in the virtual environment and I can work in both environments comfortable.

The Best of the Best

This is my second SSD I ever got and it is everything and more. I got this unit because of reviews and it was top of the line it had the write and read speeds with the best IOPS also the 5 year warranty.

Use the Samsung software so it can receive firmware updates and OS optimization. I have written over 1.7 TB worth of data on it and the drive works great. One thing I like with this unit it can tell you when the drive runs out of useable read and writes.
