- SATA III
Some manufacturers place restrictions on how details of their products may be communicated.
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7TE500BW
Fast, installed Windows and all my Steam games and everything loads extremely quick now, the least expensive SSD you can get and on paper it's one of the fastest also, but I think it only gets those stats with the Samsung Magician software
I think you have to install and tweak the Samsung software that comes with the drive to get the advertised speeds
This is my first SSD so I don't know how it compares to others but coming from only hybrid HDDs and regular 7200rpm the difference is incredible. My computer almost boots up faster than it takes my monitor to turn on. I don't even get to play with the things on the loading screens in Skyrim anymore because everything loads too quick!
