What does it mean that the Samsung MZ7KH1T9HAJR-00005 is 2.5″ SFF?
SFF stands for the small form factor. The 2.5” storage drives (including Samsung MZ7KH1T9HAJR-00005) pack a relatively compact size of 2.5 inches. To be exact, their dimensions consist of a 2.7 inches width, a 0.37-inch height, and a 3.96 inches length. The small form factor storage drives are commonly used in laptops and game consoles that have a smaller size than computers. But they’re also a fit for desktop computers and servers.
What does it mean that the Samsung MZ7KH1T9HAJR-00005 drive is SATA 6G?
SATA stands for Serial Advanced Technology Attachment, a data transfer protocol for computers. SATA is widely used for connecting different storage drives to a computer. However, this protocol has different generations with different speeds. A SATA 6G interface refers to the SATA 3 interface offering a 6.0Gb/s bandwidth (same as 600MBs). Generally, only solid-state drives (SSDs), like Samsung’s MZ7KH1T9HAJR-00005, can deliver such a fast data transfer rate. That said, SSD drives are much quicker than traditional hard disk drives (HDDs).
What does it mean that the Samsung MZ7KH1T9HAJR-00005 is a MLC drive?
MLC stands for multi-level cell, a type of memory cell that can store more than a single bit of information. It’s an upgrade to a single-level cell (SLC), which only holds one bit. The MLC storage drives, like Samsung’s MZ7KH1T9HAJR-00005, are made of multi-level cells, each having the capacity to store more than one bit of data. That said, the drives containing MLC cells are also called double-level cell (DLC) drives. Furthermore, the fewer bits one memory can store, the faster it’ll be – which is why SLC cells are faster than MLC cells.
