The market-leading 840 Series SSD was significantly improved upon in the 840 EVO. Samsung's new TurboWrite technology delivers dramatically faster sequential write performance. And, with upgrades to NAND, a new controller and firmware, the 840 EVO has superfast responsiveness under everyday workloads.
Experience a brand new, faster performance
840 EVO is significantly faster than a standard HDD, providing more rapid sequential and random read and write times for every task. Samsung’s new 3-bit MLC NAND flash memory stores data more 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 runs every job smoothly and quickly. Multitasking is a simple job for this SSD, which can operate several tasks simultaneously nearly three times faster than an HDD.
Also, with Samsung’s innovative TurboWrite technology, 840 EVO also 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), the best in the industry. To improve system-level performance, turn on the RAPID cache function on Samsung Magician software to use the PC’s free DRAM as a cache. Working more efficiently with the high-performing Samsung SSD 840 EVO will change your everyday computer usage. Now, your computer will wait for you—not the other way around.
Always be in high acceleration
If you are a speed demon, you will certainly enjoy the new level of excitement 840 EVO offers you. Thanks to Samsung’s TurboWrite technology, 840 EVO can deliver much faster sequential write speeds compared to the previous 840 model, tripling the speed from 130 to 410MB/s in 120 GB drives, and doubling it from 250 to 520MB/s in 250 GB drives. Utilizing an innovative write acceleration algorithm and high performance write buffer, you can expect accelerated speeds and higher satisfaction from your PC.
Enjoy rapid performance by switching to a higher gear
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 higher performance and more efficient command processing, which improves with repeated tasking. Boost into a higher gear to vastly improve QD1 random write performance to almost the same level as QD32.
Unmatched reliability for consistently high performance
Toughen up your PC with 840 EVO so that it can cope with almost any daily life situation. Shocks, vibrations, high temperatures—bring it on! With its robust strength, 840 EVO boasts an incredibly long life expectancy and a very low failure rate. What’s more, Samsung offers a 3-year warranty to back it up. The reliability of 840 EVO does not apply only to its physique. Equipped with Advanced Signal Processing, 840 EVO automatically corrects errors so you’ll worry less about your data’s stability. Plus, using Samsung Self-Monitoring Analysis & 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.
Rock-solid encryption to secure your data
When you take your laptop on the road, you expose your personal information to new vulnerabilities. But don’t worry, 840 EVO’s Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) security technology will help 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. Being hardware-based, the encryption engine secures your data without performance degradation that you may experience with a software-based encryption.
Keep your PC performance safe from heat
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, your PC stays cool, even when you sometimes overwork it. 840 EVO 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.
Simple and easy tools for a convenient upgrade
With 840 EVO, your upgrade becomes simple and quick. 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 only 24 minutes—just a third of the time needed for a SATA-to-USB 2.0 connector offered in some previous models.
Using the One-stop Install Navigator software, your SSD installation will be a snap. The Auto Install guide included in the toolkit will guide you smoothly through the whole installation process. The Samsung Data Migration software helps you through the migration with a straightforward three-step process, recommending user options so that you can migrate your data in the optimal way.
Add style to your PC
With the Samsung 840 EVO you not only get optimal performance but top of the line design that emphasizes luxury and refinement. Unlike other SSDs that die-cast the surface using conventional CNC-milling, 840 EVO uses both new structural engineering and C-cutting to diamond-cut the premium titan surface for a sleek and stylish appearance. Watch your PC be reborn with a premium new look that expresses its powerful performance and efficiency.
