The Samsung 840 EVO is thin and light and is specifically designed for ultra-thin laptops. Plus, 840 EVO mSATA delivers fast performance with Samsung’s 2nd generation3-bit MLC technology and reliability with self-monitoring features. In addition to these features, your PC will stay connected longer, consume less energy and power back up from the sleep mode instantly.
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.
Samsung’s 3-bit MLC NAND flash memory stores data efficiently, increasing both speed and reliability. Whether it’s a heavy workload like video file editing or a simple task like a virus scan, 840 EVO mSATA runs every job smoothly and quickly. Multitasking is a simple job for this SSD, which can operate several tasks simultaneously.
Also, with Samsung’s TurboWrite technology, 840 EVO mSATA dramatically boosts the sequential write rate. The drive’s random read rate for light workloads (QD1) is 10,000 Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS). To improve system-level performance, turn on the RAPID mode on Samsung Magician software to use the PC’s free DRAM as a cache.
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.
The 840 EVO mSATA’s Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) security technology helps keep your data safe at all times. The drive includes an AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption engine to ensure that your personal files remain secure -- even if you lose your laptop.
When you're on the move with your PC, the last thing you want to have happen is to run out of power. With Samsung 840 EVO mSATA installed, you can stay connected longer and power up faster thanks to Device Sleep (DEVSLP). Your PC no longer needs to go into standby mode to conserve battery life, nor do you have to wait for it to power back on. Take full advantage of your AOAC (always on always connected) professional life, while enjoying a longer battery life.
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.
When you’re immersed in your work, you might not notice that your PC is burning hot and struggling to keep up. With 840 EVO mSATA, your PC stays cool, even when you sometimes overwork it. 840 EVO mSATA includes Dynamic Thermal Guard protection, which monitors and maintains optimal operating temperatures for the drive. The throttling feature can drop the SSD’s temperature when necessary to protect your data and ensure the responsiveness you expect.
I'm a PC repair technician, I've built 1000's of machines and installed many systems with SSD's but this has got to be the fastest drive I've ever used. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Khal
I used this to replace the slow SanDIsk drive in my NP900X3C. I now have a much faster laptop as it's no longer hanging around waiting for disk access. Hooray!Published 1 month ago by A.N.Other
