Samsung MZ7KM480HAHP Frequently Asked Questions

What does it mean that a hard drive has a form factor of 2.5" SFF?

In the context of server hard drives, "2.5" SFF" refers to the physical form factor of the hard drive. SFF stands for "Small Form Factor," indicating that the hard drive has a smaller size compared to traditional 3.5" form factor drives commonly used in desktop computers and some servers.


The 2.5" SFF hard drive form factor was initially introduced in the early 1990s, but it gained significant prominence in the mid-2000s as a result of advancements in server technology. This form factor was specifically designed to address the needs of enterprise servers and data centers, offering several important advantages:


  1. Increased Density: The smaller physical size of 2.5" SFF drives allows for higher storage density within server racks. By using smaller drives, more drives can be installed in the same amount of space, enabling greater storage capacity per server or rack.

  2. Improved Power Efficiency: 2.5" SFF drives generally consume less power compared to their larger 3.5" counterparts. This power efficiency is beneficial for data centers and servers that require large numbers of drives, as it helps reduce overall power consumption and cooling requirements.

  3. Enhanced Performance: Smaller form factor drives often have faster access times and lower latency, which can contribute to improved performance in terms of data access and retrieval. This is particularly relevant in environments where high-speed data processing and input/output operations are crucial, such as in enterprise-level databases and virtualization environments.

  4. Better Reliability: Due to their smaller size, 2.5" SFF drives are less prone to vibrations and mechanical stress, which can be beneficial in high-density server environments where drives are closely packed. Additionally, they often have better resistance to shock and are designed with features that enhance reliability in demanding server operations.


Overall, the introduction of 2.5" SFF hard drives was an important advancement in server technology, as it provided increased storage density, improved power efficiency, enhanced performance, and better reliability for enterprise-level servers and data centers.

What does it mean that this drive is MLC?

MLC stands for Multi-Level Cell. MLC is a type of NAND flash memory technology that allows multiple bits of data to be stored in a single cell. It is a step up from Single-Level Cell (SLC) technology, which can only store one bit per cell.

MLC was first introduced in the mid-2000s as a cost-effective alternative to SLC. It allowed manufacturers to increase the storage density of NAND flash memory by storing multiple bits in each cell. By storing more bits per cell, MLC SSDs could offer higher capacity at a lower cost compared to SLC SSDs.

The introduction of MLC was an important advancement in technology for several reasons:

  • Cost Efficiency: MLC SSDs offered a more affordable option for storage compared to SLC SSDs. By storing more data in each cell, manufacturers could produce higher-capacity SSDs at a lower cost per gigabyte.

  • Increased Storage Density: MLC's ability to store multiple bits per cell increased the storage density of NAND flash memory. This meant that more data could be stored in the same physical space, allowing for higher-capacity SSDs.

  • Balancing Performance and Endurance: MLC struck a balance between performance and endurance. While not as fast or durable as SLC, MLC SSDs still provided a significant improvement over traditional hard disk drives (HDDs) in terms of read/write speeds and overall reliability.

  • Wider Adoption of SSDs: The availability of cost-effective MLC SSDs played a crucial role in driving the wider adoption of SSD technology. It enabled businesses and consumers to transition from HDDs to SSDs, benefiting from faster data access and improved system responsiveness.

However, it's worth noting that MLC SSDs have a lower endurance compared to SLC SSDs. Each cell in an MLC SSD can sustain a limited number of program/erase cycles before it becomes unreliable. To mitigate this limitation, SSD manufacturers implemented various techniques such as wear-leveling and error-correction algorithms to improve endurance and reliability.

Over time, further advancements in NAND flash memory technology have been made, leading to the introduction of more advanced types like Triple-Level Cell (TLC) and Quad-Level Cell (QLC), which store even more bits per cell. These newer technologies continue to improve storage density and reduce costs, albeit at the expense of endurance compared to MLC and SLC SSDs.

"We're a Canadian company who was badly in need of a drive for our server. Wasn't sure how the cross border purchase would go but Scott and his team had us taken care of at a price that couldn't be beaten and with lightning speed and efficiency. We had our drive in just a few days. I would highly recommend this company! Wish there were more out there like them!"
