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 250GB 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

ssd

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

ssd

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

ssd

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.

5 out of 5 eggsA Most Effective Upgrade . . .

Pros: Easy installation in Lenovo Thinkpad T520.
mSATA installation frees up main drive-bay for mass storage.
Low power consumption with virtually no heat generation.
Samsung Magician software can't be beat for late-model retail version Samsung SSDs.

Cons: None . . . buy one!

Other Thoughts: Even though connected to a 3Gbit/s mSATA interface, the Samsung 840 EVO mSATA SSD totally transformed my Lenovo T520 into an entirely new machine. If I didn't have the need for mass storage in this laptop, I would have purchased a Samsung 850 EVO 2.5" SSD and plugged into the T520's SATA 6Gbit/s interface for even better performance. But none the less, the Samsung 840 EVO mSATA SSD is by far the most effective upgrade that I've ever experienced with a laptop.

4 out of 5 eggsNice drive

Pros: VERY suitable for consumer use, easy install, good build quality. I bought this drive to replace the original hdd+ssd cache solution on a ThinkPad S230U, after suffering two hard drive failures due to drop. Improved system performance to the level I would expect from a ssd, and that's pretty much all I wanted. The pcb is very nicely built. I even accidentally scratched it with a screw driver, put it back, works as normal. Heats up under heavy load, but well within the level I can tolerate.

Cons: A great drive for me, but probably not for everyone. Again, do your research.

5 out of 5 eggsLatitude T430 Boot Drive

Pros: I added this mSATA as a boot device to my Latitude T430 along with the EVO 840 500Gb for storage and 16Gb of G.Skill DDR3 1866. I'm impressed. This little disk kicks.

The mSATA connection in the T430 is SATA II 2.0 so native performance is throttled. The RAPID mode caching more than makes up the difference and it is working out real well.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Sixteen gig of G.Skill gives the me a RAM drive and the RAPID caching plenty of room to run.
I have no problems with heat. It is stable at 42C unless benchmarking.
The T430 has a screw for the installation.

5 out of 5 eggsSUCH AMAZE

Pros: Super fast start up! Did complete restart in about 42 seconds which included me starting Google Chrome, Windows Explorer, and Photoshop CS6 Extended. SUPER AMAZING SPEED.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and was looking at by a similarly priced Intel SSD but decided that the few extra dollars for the Samsung one might be worth it and boy did I make a good call.

You will not regret your purchase of this drive.

5 out of 5 eggsFAST!!

Pros: Runs very fast. Using this in a NES PC build and windows starts very quickly and has been reliable so far. I've bought a few Samsung SSDs in the past, but this was my first msata. Plug and play. Super easy.

Cons: None yet.
