TurboWrite technology delivers dramatically faster sequential write speeds, boosting overall PC performance.
All components are designed and produced by Samsung.
TurboWrite for Faster Performance
Samsung TurboWrite technology uses an innovative write acceleration algorithm and a high-performance write buffer to dramatically boost the sequential write speeds for overall improved performance.
RAPID Mode for Efficient Data Caching
The 840 EVO includes Samsung Magician software with RAPID mode--an innovative DRAM caching enhancement which boosts PC performance by using idle DRAM as an ultra-fast buffer that improves system performance over time as the drive optimizes to your tasks.
Encryption Technology to Secure Your Data
The 840 EVO features Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) technology to encrypt your data and help keep your personal files secure. Because the technology is hardware-based, it eliminates performance degradation that can occur in software-based encryption.
Sleek, Sophisticated Design
At only 7 millimeters thick and weighing just 2 ounces, the 840 EVO Series SSD features a sleek, lightweight design. The stunning brushed aluminum design emphasizes luxury and refinement, but is durable enough to protect your data from loss due to shock, dust and corrosion.
All of the components of the 840 EVO are designed and manufactured by Samsung to ensure optimal quality, performance, and lifespan.
Included Software for Smooth Installation
This 840 EVO includes Samsung Data Migration software, which makes it simple to migrate your data, applications, and operating system from your hard disk drive to the SSD. In addition, Samsung Magician gives you all the tools to monitor, manage, and maintain your new SSD.
Easier-Than-Ever Upgrade Tools
Samsung's One-stop Installation Navigator provides a comprehensive guide for software installation, data migration, and hardware setup. The simple Samsung Data Migration software supports a powerful and unique "Custom Cloning" feature that simplifies the transition to your new SSD.
