seems like some random write speeds are better on the bigger HDD ??
some people had better performance results in their tests ( https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32657147484.html?spm=a2g0s.90423184.108.40.206e4f4c4dDsnx0k ) , maybe I am not running at full SATA3 speed ??
I cannot say for sure but i think sata 3 came out with sandy bridge. which is the i5-25xx chips. Is that what you have.? this benchmark is on a samsung on haswell or 4th gen intel sata 3. Some of the cheap ssds do not have a dram cache chip. it makes a big difference on the small files. Some of the cheap drives were only writing 2 megs a sec on multiple tiny files
try the maybe newer benchmark as ssd
considered slow compared to the newer NVMe
thanks for the inputs !
your evo 860 ssd has really good performance !
I ran my tests on CF-C1Bs with sandy bridge 2nd gen intel i5 2520m
I ve just ordered 2 new 512GB goldenfir SSDs for my new CF-C1Bs (I actually received 2 CF-C1Bs friday ... one was not supposed to boot to BIOS but I ve just checked and it boots perfectly fine ) ... maybe I ll have better performance with that size of SSDs ( I ve read somewhere that 180GB and 360GB are not conventional sizes for SSD and may offer less speed ...) ... I ll run a CrystalDisk BenchMark test on these too
bigger drives perform better since they have more chips. some of the cheaper ones only use 1 chip. My only issue would be reliability from cheap drives. I have some ancient ide drives that still work after 25 years. Had boxes full of seagate drives that failed after a few years. Time will tell
did somebody find cheap chargers for our old panasonic laptops ?
preferably on aliexpress ?
found this one : https://www.amazon.fr/Alimentation-...s=Panasonic&qid=1592898389&s=computers&sr=1-5 but it's 15E + 7E shipping ...
this one is cheaper at 9E : https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32700038009.html?spm=a2g0o.cart.0.0.a2fd3c005IZTYv&mp=1 but I need to check if I have some power cords at home ...
I've used IBM brand power adapters, rated 16V 4.5A which is plug compatible with all newer Toughbooks although not enough amperage to fully power some newer models especially with discrete graphics. Here is a combo AC/DC model on US eBay for $13 shipped: https://www.ebay.com/itm/IBM-22P9003-FRU22P9021-AC-DC-Combo-Adapter-Charger-Power-Supply-16V-0-4-55A/183274348194
Thanks a lot ! very useful information !
I could save a few bucks by ordering these (less than 9E) chargers : https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32722315714.html?spm=2114.12010615.8148356.1.49ab4bf7BxNpbh (found some EU power cords at the office )
I'd recommend avoiding generic Chinese adapters and cords.
Chinese adapters with name brands like Dell or IBM meet rigorous quality standards - others may not. Many people keep adapters plugged in all the time. I've seen pictures of fires in homes started by cheap laptop adapters. Is it worth a few $ or euros to risk your life and everything you own?
