This makes it a versatile option for systems that require a balance of performance and endurance, such as in everyday computing, multimedia storage, and gaming.
Additionally, the drive utilizes TLC (Triple-Level Cell) NAND flash memory, which offers a lower cost per GB compared to other types of flash memory while still providing good performance.
The Samsung MZ7L3480HCHQAD3 480GB SATA 6GBPS Mix Use TLC Solid State Drive is a cost-effective and reliable storage solution for systems that require balanced read and write operations.
Facilities of TLC Technology
TLC (Triple-Level Cell) technology is a type of flash memory used in solid state drives (SSDs) to store data. It refers to the number of bits stored in each cell of the flash memory. In TLC, each cell stores three bits of data, compared to two bits in MLC (Multi-Level Cell) and one bit in SLC (Single-Level Cell) technology.
Facilities of TLC technology include:
- Cost-Effective: TLC technology is the most affordable among all the flash memory types, making it a popular choice for consumer-level SSDs.
- Higher Capacity: TLC technology allows for higher storage density, leading to higher storage capacities in smaller form factors.
- Improved Endurance: TLC technology has improved endurance compared to MLC and SLC, making it a more reliable choice for everyday use.
- Faster Write Speeds: With TLC technology, write speeds have improved, making it faster to transfer data to the SSD.
- Improved Performance: TLC technology has improved performance compared to traditional mechanical hard drives, making it a more efficient and faster storage option.
TLC technology is a cost-effective and efficient solution for solid state storage, making it an ideal choice for consumer-level devices such as laptops and desktops.
Data Encryption and Security
Data encryption refers to the process of converting plain text information into an unreadable format to protect it from unauthorized access. This is done using an encryption algorithm, which converts the information into a ciphertext using a key. The key is used to decrypt the information when needed, ensuring that only authorized parties can access the data.
Security in the context of solid state drives refers to the measures taken to protect the data stored on the drive from unauthorized access. The Samsung MZ7L3480HCHQAD3 480GB SATA 6GBPS Mix Use TLC Solid State Drive comes equipped with hardware-based encryption, which protects data at rest. This means that even if the drive is removed from its device, the data will remain encrypted and inaccessible without the proper key.
In addition to hardware-based encryption, the Samsung drive also has security features such as secure erase, which completely wipes the data from the drive, and secure firmware updates, which protect the firmware from tampering or corruption.
By combining encryption and security measures, the Samsung MZ7L3480HCHQAD3 480GB SATA 6GBPS Mix Use TLC Solid State Drive provides a high level of protection for the data stored on it, ensuring that sensitive information is kept safe from unauthorized access.

About Refurbished Products
SATA 6GB/S SSD (Solid State Drive)
When high-end computer or server hardware comes into the picture, it is always a great idea to push the performance bar higher. Until users begin to use devices that are faster than conventional disks, then some benchmark grades would be significantly hampered. This is where SATA drives come into the picture.
SATA drives remain the most commonly used storage devices in mid-range PCs and desktop computers. They are compatible with several computer motherboards and operating systems. As such, they are one of the best storage solutions available. SATA drives are also typically used in popular gaming consoles.
They offer impressive storage capacity and excellent transmission speed. Now, the magic of SSDs is in the dazzling amount of data they send through SATA ports. Not only do they do that, but the solid-state technology allows them to respond to storage requirements efficiently. They do this with the fastest of speeds.
Their response time is incredible, allowing users across different levels to enjoy their use. The evolution of SSDs has seen them have much faster transfer rates. In addition to offering faster response times, these drives can almost saturate the entirety of a SATA port.
SATA 6GB/S Benefits
Users wonder about the need for or the benefits of adopting the SATA 6GB/S technology. This may result from hard drives current inability to fill the SATA 3.0 pipe at the 6GB/S speeds. However, SATA III ports now support bandwidths that are up to 6GBPs. There are several benefits to gain from using solid-state drives with a SATA 6GB S interface.
SATA 6GB S SSD Improved Performance
Users should expect improved performances and cache-efficient desktop applications. This interface would ensure that operations such as graphics design, video editing, and gaming become a lot faster. Compatible solid-state drives will reach faster sequential read-write speed rates. That way, users will see improved user experience and productivity, regardless of the activity they perform.
Compatibility SSD SATA 6.0 GB S
Another great advantage of these drives is that they work well with older components. They are backward compatible with SATA II and SATA I interfaces. Therefore, users do not need to change their old PCs or desktop computers before using these drives.
Improved Space Management
When compared to the PATA connectors, SATA drives are much smaller. This allows them to adapt to even the smallest PC cases, enabling better airflow among components. The SATA 6GBPS drives are suitable for connecting SSDs and optical drives to a motherboard. They do this without taking much space, thanks to the flat designs.
Bigger Cache Memories SATA 6.0 gb s
Renowned disk drive vendors are now equipping these drives with bigger and faster cache memories. This way, any application in use can predict what data a user is likely to need next. With this, they help to increase data transfer rates of SATA 6GBPS SSD with smart fetching and caching algorithms. The technology ensures no delay in retrieving information that has been pre-fetched and stored in the cache.
The Ultimate Performance Booster
Incremental investment in SATA 6GB/S drives can yield incredible improvement in performance. They have been amplified for higher capacities to be the mainstream high-performance devices.
