Product Description

Samsung 840 EVO SSD

Enjoy High Performance

The Samsung SSD 840 EVO is a high-performance SSD designed for power users. Capable of delivering up to 98,000 IOPS Random Read Speed and 540MB/s Sequential Read speed, it is an SSD of unrivaled high performance. Even better, the advanced MEX controller delivers these speeds regardless of data type, unlike some competing controllers that greatly favour compressible data.

TurboWrite
Boost your write speed with Samsung TurboWrite technology.
Switch to a higher gear
Magician software gives you the option of RAPID mode.
Always be in High Acceleration

Thanks to Samsung TurboWrite technology, Samsung SSD 840 EVO can deliver much faster sequential write speeds compared to the previous model -- up to tripling the speed from 130 to 410MB/s in 120 GB drives, and doubling it from 250 to 520MB/s in 250 GB drives.

Switch to a High Gear for Rapid Performance

Like changing gears in a car, with Magician software you have the option of RAPID mode, enhancing performance by processing data on a system level through the use of free PC memory (DRAM) as a cache. Depending on your PC memory, you can expect high performance and more efficient command processing, which improves with repeated tasking.

Keep your data safe
Self Encrypting Drive (SED) security technology helps keep your data safe.
Dynamic Thermal Guard protection
Dynamic Thermal Guard protection monitors the temperature of your SSD.
Consistent Reliability

Shocks, vibrations, high temperatures -- bring it on. Equipped with Advanced Signal Processing, Samsung SSD 840 EVO automatically corrects errors so you'll worry less about your data's stability. Plus, using Samsung Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART), you can track your SSD's health status. SMART warns you of any unforeseen errors before they occur, so you'll be prepared.

Samsung's Dynamic Thermal Guard protection monitors the temperature of the SSD, preventing it from overheating. When the SSD is exposed to extreme temperatures, the algorithm controls the SSD's power supply to keep it cool. Plus, with Samsung SSD 840 EVO your PC becomes lighter, meaning you can carry it around with you.

Samsung 840 EVO SSD
Add style to your PC.
Rock-solid Encryption to Secure Your Data

Samsung 840 EVO Self Encrypting Drive (SED) security technology will help keep your data safe at all times. The drive is included an AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption engine to ensure that your personal files remain secure -- even if you lose your laptop.

Energy Efficient

Enjoy doing more of what you love on your computer for longer. Samsung 840 EVO SSD features low idle power consumption. This is important because PCs spend 80 to 90 per cent of their time sitting idle. The drive promotes energy savings and longer battery life.

Simple Tools for an Easy Upgrade

Using a SATA-to-USB 3.0 connector provided in the laptop upgrade package, for a data size of 100 GB, you can migrate all the data from your HDD to 840 EVO in just 24 minutes. The Auto Install guide included in the toolkit will guide you smoothly through the installation process.

Add Style to Your PC

Samsung 840 EVO SSD uses both structural engineering and C-cutting to diamond-cut the premium titan surface, for a sleek and stylish appearance. Watch your PC become reborn with a premium look that expresses its powerful performance.

The Samsung 840 EVO drives are definitely blazing fast SSD. I do feel that SSD drives in general are still slightly overpriced when considering the fact that these are now mainstream, and no longer belonging to a niche market. Yet to be fair, it could still work out as a much cheaper option than buying a new laptop or desktop computer.

The SSD in my review is mounted on a desktop running Windows 7 (64bit), i7 processor with 16GB RAM. My motherboard does not support SATA 3 yet the speed increment is astounding!! Windows 7 actually starts in 7 seconds!!

Pros:
- Lightning fast drive
- Super easy installation
- Light on batteries (for laptop users)
- "Samsung Magician" software works great for firmware updates and SSD optimization. The software also gives you 4 options: Max Performance/ Max Capacity / Max Reliability / Advanced.
- Macbook Pro compatible. I had issues with other SSD drives, yet I bought a smaller EVO to fit in the MacBook and it works a treat

Prior to mentioning the cons, I would like to point out that these apply to most SSD and not just the Samsung.

Cons:
- Samsung recommends turning off indexing for reliability. Doing so means that you can no longer search for files from the "Search programs or files".

Considerations:
- In order to use the drive to its full potential, AHCI Mode must be enabled in the bios, and motherboard should support SATA 3.
- A 500GB SSD or greater is recommended as one of the features Samsung software offer is Over Provisioning. A part of the SSD itself is used for this option thus decreasing the physical size of the disk.

I got this disc drive to upgrade my wife's aging laptop. The laptop runs windows vista which runs very slowly. As well as this drive , I also got a copy of windows 7 to complete the upgrade. To date all i've done is do a fresh install of vista, Then clone the existing drive. I'll be honest, this is all i've done so far & it has made a vast improvement to the laptop. I will get around to installing windows 7 as this operating system is the first to have a solid state drive optimising built in.Use the latest version of the samsung magician, and migration software from their website.It's so very easy to do. I'm no geek, but this was so simple. If you have doubts, google any querries before you start. If your looking for an easy upgrade GO FOR THIS HARD DRIVE.

This drive is definitely the best SSD for the money, if you are contemplating buying this I would highly recommend it, especially with the RAPID mode that the included software provides.

I haven't used the included 2.5" to 3.5" mounting kit or the USB to SATA cable, but I'm sure they will come in handy in the future.

Really pleased with the buy except the mounting bracket doesn't suits my lap top and the box say it is for desk top upgrade. Used as additional storage to my brand new acer v3 772g. I have transferred all the OS files to SSD and used the 1TB lap memory for storage. Pretty fast boot up which takes less than 10sec to boot up.

I love Samsung SSDs. I've bought a few of these in different capacities and they never fail to impress me - they're fast when they're new, they stay fast after being heavily used for a year and I've never had any compatability problems or data loss with them.

This took a Windows Experience score from 5.4 to 7.7. My HP desktop now boots up and shuts down much quicker. The migration software is poor, so I started the migration process again using Macrium Reflect

I can't get over how quickly my new Win 8.1 pc boots up and loads with this SSD. No preformatting needed, plug it in and let windows do the job for you on install. Very happy customer here.
