Add Storage to Ultra-Thin Laptop or Desktop PC
Offering 120 GB of storage in an ultra-thin form factor, the Samsung 840 EVO mSATA SSD is an ideal performance upgrade for the latest compact laptop and desktop PC designs. Despite its small size, the drive gives you plenty of room for all your apps and media, and it also delivers faster bootup and application launching.
TurboWrite for Significantly Faster Performance
The Samsung 840 EVO mSATA provides exceptional write speeds up to 520 MB/s thanks to an ultra-fast cache called TurboWrite. This allows your PC to handle bigger workloads so you can get work done faster.
RAPID Mode Improves Drive Performance in Real Time
RAPID (Real-time Accelerated Processing of I/O Data) Mode enhances disk performance by utilizing free DRAM memory as a cache. With RAPID Mode enabled, the 840 EVO mSATA analyzes your application and data usage and adapts -- optimizing performance and eliminating bottlenecks.
Tackle Everyday PC Tasks Without the Wait
With a faster controller and improved firmware, the 840 EVO mSATA is incredibly fast at executing common tasks. Higher random read performance translates to faster startup, shutdown, application execution, web browsing, and more.
Low Power Consumption, Longer Battery Life
The next generation of NAND combines with advances in the MEX controller to make the 840 EVO mSATA a remarkably efficient SSD. Device sleep mode ensures that when your ultra-thin laptop is idle, it consumes very little power. The drive also generates less heat than traditional SSDs and helps your battery last up to 45 minutes longer than using traditional hard drives.
256-Bit Encryption Protects Your Data
The 840 EVO mSATA features self-encrypting drive technology to safeguard your data. AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption keeps files secure without sacrificing performance. To ensure that you get the most of these features, the included Samsung Magician software guides you through the setup and maintenance of your drive.
Data Migration Software for Easy Upgrade
Samsung's Data Migration software makes it easy to upgrade your system to the speed, security, and performance of the 840 EVO mSATA SSD. A custom cloning option lets you exclude large media files from the cloning process and move them to another storage device to avoid a separate backup process.
Note that mSATA-to-SATA and SATA-to-USB connectors are sold separately.
Durable, Genuine Samsung Components
Samsung's rugged 840 EVO mSATA SSD is shockproof and vibration proof and is made from 100-percent Samsung memory components. Dynamic Thermal Guard protection ensures optimal operating temperature.
