Upgraded Performance for Ultra-Thin Machines

The Samsung 840 EVO Series mSATA SSD offers ideal performance for today's ultra-thin laptops and desktops. The 840 EVO mSATA brings blazing speed and 120GB of storage space to machines equipped with an mSATA slot.

TurboWrite for Speeds up to 520MBps

The Samsung 840 EVO mSATA SSD has faster write speeds than previous-generation SSDs thanks to TurboWrite, an innovative write acceleration algorithm. A high-performance write buffer created in the SSD allows for significantly increased sequential write speeds reaching 520MBps.

RAPID Mode Dynamically Optimizes I/O


RAPID (Real-time Accelerated Processing of I/O Data) Mode enhances disk performance by processing data on a system level utilizing free DRAM memory as a high-speed cache. RAPID Mode dynamically analyzes application usage and accelerates frequently used data to optimize system performance and eliminate bottlenecks.

Superfast Responsiveness for Standard Tasks

A faster controller and improved firmware allow the 840 EVO mSATA to deliver higher random read performance. This translates to faster speeds for everyday use--snappier startup, shutdown, application loading, and more.

Optimized for Lower Power Consumption


The 840 EVO mSATA draws less power than previous-generation SSDs so your battery lasts longer and the drive stays cooler. The latest generation NAND memory and Samsung MEX controller make the mSATA SSD remarkably efficient, with idle power consumption below 2mW when the drive is in optimized device sleep mode.

256-Bit Hardware-Based Encryption

The mSATA SSD's Self-Encrypting Drive technology safeguards your data, and hardware-based AES 256-bit encryption means you don't have to sacrifice performance for protection.

Advanced Disk Management Software


Samsung's 840 EVO Series mSATA SSDs come with Samsung Magician software, which allows you to set up and maintain your SSD, enable RAPID Mode and adjust your security settings. Data Migration software simplifies the upgrade process, and a custom cloning option helps you avoid a separate backup process when the target disk is smaller than your original drive.

Product Information

Samsung's 840 EVO mSATA SSD is shockproof, vibration proof, and made entirely of genuine Samsung components. Dynamic Thermal Guard protection ensures optimal operating temperature.

The drive is backed by Samsung's 3-year limited warranty.

4 out of 5 eggsHuge storage, fast, but runs hot

Pros: A lot of fast storage in a very small package

Cons: It gets hots

Other Thoughts: Got lucky on timing. Used an e-mail coupon, then noticed the next day the price went back up. I'm actually using it in an external enclosure and transferring data to it, it was heating up quite a bit and throttling.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat mSATA SSD

Pros: Installed in my wife's Lenovo T520 3 or 4 months ago, works great and SUPER fast!

Cons: SSDs are still a bit too expensive for my taste.

Other Thoughts: I went with an mSATA SSD because we were able to keep the traditional hard drive in place for storage capacity.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Cache Drive for IRST

Pros: Easy to install in my HP ENVY 15t-j000 Quad Edition for a Cache Drive. Functions Fast when running benchmark. It does get around 500 read and write when used as a Cache in IRST.

Cons: Does not come with small screw. You must order Laptop / notebook screw kit to install in mSATA slot. I wish Samsung would supply it. Can not use RAPID mode or the Samsung Magician for a cache drive. You are limited to use 64gb for the Cache. I am using the max as a cache.

Other Thoughts: I am Shure if you wait a little it well go down in price as the 2.5" EVO has done. If you have a fast system with a slow HD then you are bottlenecked at your HD. This would fix the Bottleneck so you would have a fast system.
