Samsung 840 Evo 1TB Review

 

To create the Evo, Samsung added new 19nm MLC NAND, a new controller named MEX (its previous one was called MDX), and new caching technology it calls TurboWrite. This caching method treats a portion of the drive's MLC NAND as if it were far pricier and...

Samsung 840 EVO (500GB)

 

Whether you're a regular user or even an enthusiast, the Samsung 840 EVO (500GB) has the best price/performance ratio of any internal solid-state drive (SSD) you can buy today.

Costs just over 50 cents per GB. Performs like a standard multi-layer-cell (MLC) drive

Its triple-level-cell (TLC) NAND isn't suitable for all workloads or scenarios

The Samsung 840 EVO (500GB) ($259) internal solid-state drive (SSD), the follow-up to the company's Samsung 840 Series 250GB, retains the TLC flash memory that debuted in its predecessor, but adds functionality to boost performance. The result is one...

Samsung SSD 840 EVO mSATA (120GB, 250GB, 500GB & 1TB) Review

 

Samsung is in a unique position in the SSD market. It's the only company in the consumer SSD business with a fully vertically integrated business model and zero reliance on other companies. The controller, NAND, DRAM, firmware and software are all...

Samsung continually amazes me in the SSD space. The EVO mSATA is yet another proof that their engineering is state-of-the-art and almost one step ahead of others. I cannot wait to see what else Samsung has in their sleeves for 2014, and we will analyze...

Samsung 840 Evo (250GB)

 

The new drive is a replacement for Samsung's previous entry-level 840 Series drive , but the only thing entry-level about it is the pricing. Its performance is among the best I've seen, and the drive is also the first consumer-grade SSD to hit the 1TB...

The Samsung 840 Evo solid-state drive offers overall excellent performance, top storage space, and useful bundled software, at low cost.

The three-year warranty is relatively short, and the drive's sequential read speed could be a tad better.

If you're looking for a fast SSD that offers top capacity at low cost, look no further than the Samsung 840 Evo.

Samsung SSD 840 EVO Review: 120GB, 250GB, 500GB, 750GB & 1TB Models Tested

 

I'm continually amazed by Samsung's rise to power in the SSD space. If you compare their market dominating products today to what we were reviewing from Samsung just a few years ago you'd assume they came from a different company. The past three...

To say that I really like the EVO is an understatement. If Samsung can keep quantities of the 840 EVO flowing, and keep prices at or below its MSRP, it'll be a real winner and probably my pick for best mainstream SSD.

Samsung SSD 840 (250GB) Review

 

Samsung has been making steady progress in becoming one of the major players in the consumer SSD market. Even before the SSD 470, Samsung was a major player in the industry with their mostly OEM SSDs, but this took a dramatic change when the SSD 830...

We will see about final pricing in a couple of weeks, but for now the 840 looks like the entry level SSD to buy. The 840 Pro is likely the drive to buy for your primary notebook/workstation, while the 840 is the drive to recommend for a relative who...

Samsung 840 EVO Performance Restoration Tool preview - Getting EVOs back up to speed

 

The tool is now available for download from Samsung here. Another note is that they intend to release an ISO / DOS version of the tool at the end of the month (for Lunix and Mac users). We assume this would be a file system agnostic version of the...

Samsung 840 / 840 EVO susceptible to flash read speed degradation over time

Samsung 840 EVO 250GB Review

 

We love speed… and after reviewing the Samsung 840 Pro , we were chomping at the bit to get the 840 EVO in the lab. Not only does the newer EVO model use newer 19nm 3-bit Triple-Level Cell vs that of 2-bit MLC found in the 840 Pro, but it also features...
