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.

Box Contains

Size Name: 1TB Verified Purchase
The Samsung 840 EVO 1TB is definitely a 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 workes 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". See Photo.

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.
- The 1TB SSD 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. The Magician Software itself says:

Size Name: 250GB Verified Purchase
Bootup time - 12 seconds to Windows 7 login prompt, 15 seconds beyond the prompt. Not 3 minutes like before. But thats minor - where it really make a difference is in loading applications, when your actually using the computer - 1 second to load Word for example! It's freeking INSANE! Best improvement that you can make - forget better CPU - forget faster GPU, Memory - this makes EVERYTHING run like greased lightening.

SQUISHING XXXxGB into a 250Gb or LESS SSD EXTEND THE SSD LIFETIME BY YEARS!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I had about 1Tb of stuff on my C: drive that I had to make run on a 250Gb SSD! (see below for how to do this properly). This SSD came with a copy program which was therefore useless for me to use. I had to 2 copy 2 folders (called Users and ProgramData) to another 'normal' Harddrive (D:) - when this was done everything else - all the installed programs, operating system etc...took only into 70Gb of the 250Gb SSD. To do this properly you have to use some tools that come with Windows 7 (run under Audit mode and SysPrep)

LIFETIME OF A SSD:
You can only write something like 1000 times to the device before the transistors in that area are burnt out and the area is marked out of use. So the device will degrade over time its space will shink as it marks areas off.

So, IDEALLY *AND I STRESS IDEALLY* because it will take maybe years (over a year at least) to degrade even if you don't bother follow the rules to reduce writing to the device, by which time prices will have dropped again and you can simply buy another one.

But - if you want to squeeze maximum lifespan, you want to do a few things to reduce Windows writing to the device.
