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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
