Re: X220 and Samsung 830 SSD

[ Edited ]

Hi again,

 

Thanks for you replies.

 

@psychopomp1 (@motomandk and @Platonio)

Did you make this listening test with your ear flat on the keyboard in a dead silent room? I am not questioning your judgement, I simply need to know your listening conditions. I can barely hear it here at work when the room is as silent as it gets (with my ear planted on the keyboard).

 

EDIT: Also it is more audible from the bottom of the computer, but not really emanating from the RAM slots but right around the oval hole to the left of the docking port. - It is also MUCH more audible in Max Performance mode than in Powersave, so you might want to check both conditions.

 

@orion9727

I have heard of solid state devices making audible noises - more frequently ram than ssds.

 

I will try both a compass and a multimeter - just clarify the use of the last one for me - I am supposed to pick up the induced current of a magnetic field with a voltage meter set to milivolts, by holding the pins close to the source of the field? Or was that just for the compass?

Re: X220 and Samsung 830 SSD

Yes, I can confirm that there is a noise from the SSD, but only on heavy use like benchmarking.

"Normally" (idling in Windows) it´s quiet and only noticeable with my ear on the keyboard in very silent rooms.

@motomandk

Haha, thats allright man! thanks for answering anyway!

 

@Platonio

Oh, thats excellent news dude. Thank you! Your description sounds just right to me. This put me at ease on the question of having a unit with a problem!

 

Now when I get an external cabinet, I will thouroughly check if it is the SSD itself that is making this noise, or if it is emanating from voltage regulators closeby.

Re: X220 and Samsung 830 SSD

lol motomandk.
you know i fired a .50 amax before and i thought my head would explode.
i not wanna be anywhere near a navy gun.
thats real pain trust me i dont know how you guys do it.

as for the emi test yea it pick up anything in the air.
great way to shows kids science.
it will show up days there thunder.
watch the meter climb.

i used it years ago when i went looking for shorts in cars,compass too.
i find scince solves more things then fancy machines anyday.
i really dont get why there be noise unless something is leaking.

i heard of vga ports leaking but i never seen one first hand.
things can leak sure.
i think caps be the place on a new laptop that leak if any or a bad fan.

i have heard of ssd doing this when they first came out when in some werid combo.
samsung is pretty good.
korea is like the new japan today.
i am sooooooo long on south korea,,,,, and so short on japan.
japan been like a ghost town last few years i been there and that was before the quake.

hey guys tourism japan is doing free tickets if you blog or socail site them in the spring.
i am not sure if the do me cause i held a visa before but i am sure gonna try.

it just that korea now has such a quality to it products even there cars now are not junk boxes.
so i not expect a defective ssd but you never know on a first run it happens alot.

i think your looking at a leaking laptop mayby you should get a ticket going.

Hi,

 

I have installed the Samsung 830 (128GB) SSD successfull in my X220.

 

It´s working very fast now :smileyvery-happy:



Platonio:

 

1. Do you know if the 830 supports hardware based full disk encryption (FDE)?

 

2. Now that you have spent some more time with it, what has been your experience?

orion9727, twotoneblue, psychopomp1:

 

Do any of you know if SSD 830 supports hardware-based full disk encryption (fde)?

 

I see inconsistent answers to that question on the internet...

 

If you don't use FDE yourself, does any of your paper documentation say anything about it?

 

Thanks.

Re: X220 and Samsung 830 SSD

@twotoneblue:  Thanks.  Samsung is a big runaround - both on the internet and on the phone.

Re: X220 and Samsung 830 SSD

sorry i know samsung dose on the enterprize models but i think there buisness odel now is the exact same.
why?
there a vendor for the mac air and they have aes i not sure about fde.
normally you really have to dig hard for data on that because it a high level thing.
high level things means you know what your doing.
like enterprize stuff.
i know i wish they print more on this but to be open this sorta talk is not legal outside the us and some contrys it get you locked up.
normally you cant have it on a travel laptop.
this is something you really need to go to a site on that for.
sorry i not tested it yet but it is on my to do list.
