Product Overview

The must-have solution for your PC upgrade
The evolution of the SSD has arrived as the Samsung SSD 840 EVO with more speed, more reliability and much easier upgrade tools. Combining the best SSD technology from Samsung, 840 EVO delivers a superior computing experience.

Faster performance for everyday use
The market-leading 120 GB 840 Series SSD was significantly improved upon in the 840 EVO. Samsung’s new TurboWrite technology delivers dramatically faster sequential write performance. And, with upgrades to NAND, a new controller and firmware, the 840 EVO has superfast responsiveness under everyday workloads.

Proven quality and trusted reliability
Samsung’s unparalleled end-to-end integration allows us to deliver a reliable, high-performance 2nd generation 3-bit MLC SSD. The upgraded firmware and advanced signal processing guarantees the same level of endurance and reliability as our previous generation, while improving performance. The 840EVO’s ultra-low power consumption helps extend laptop battery life longer than before. In addition, Samsung’s “Dynamic Thermal Guard” algorithm in 840 EVO maintains optimal operating temperature for the drive. Samsung 840 EVO is backed by the same 3-year limited warranty as the previous generation.

Easier-than-ever upgrade tools
As SSDs become more main stream, it is important to make the installation process as smooth and simple as possible. Samsung’s Onestop Installation Navigator is a comprehensive guide for software setup, data migration process and hardware installation. The Samsung Data Migration software is simple to use - yet provides a very powerful “Custom Cloning” feature that makes migration work even when source data is greater than the SSD’s capacity. In addition, SATA to USB 3.0 connector makes data migration up to three times faster than USB 2.0 for laptop upgrades*. Together, it is now easier than ever to get setup and running with Samsung SSDs.(*SATA to USB 3.0connector is bundled only with Laptop Upgrade package)

Samsung Magician Software
Magician eliminates the confusion and uncertainties of SSD management, making it simple for users to maximize the performance and lifetime of their Samsung SSD. In addition to its performance optimization features, Magician (from the version 4.2) also provides 840 EVO users the option to enable RAPID mode (Realtime Accelerated Processing of Input-output Data) – an innovative performance enhancement that processes data on a system level by using free DRAM memory as a cache. Once enabled in Magician, RAPID mode provides an overall PC performance boost.

More Powerful Data Security Solutions
The Samsung SSD 840 EVO introduces two important features for data security: hardwarebased AES 256bit Full Disk Encryption (FDE) and PSID. Hardware-based AES Encryption helps safeguard data against attack by encrypting all information on the disk at the hardware level, which means there is no detrimental effect on performance.When you forget your SSD security password, PSID protects your data on the drive by executing a cryptographic erase which returns the drive to its factory status, preventing any unauthorized access to your data.

A Complete, user-friendly solution
With a wide range of capacities from 120GB to the spacious 1TB, the 840 EVO will help you find the perfect SSD for your PC upgrade. And, Samsung’s 1TB drive is a real 1,000GB of useraddressable capacity. The Samsung SSD 840 EVO is available in three packaging configurations: Basic (Drive only), Laptop Upgrade and Desktop Upgrade kit. The Laptop Upgrade kit comes with a SATA to USB 3.0 connector and a mounting spacer. The Desktop Upgrade kit includes a SATA to USB 2.0 connector, a SATA data cable, screws, a 2.5” to 3.5” adapter bracket.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Right price, right quality and quick delivery The Evo series is reliable and the included software made transferring my data simple. Typical scan delivery, on time and well wrapped. 14 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by SSD It is what it is a samung ssd 120gb. Works fine. Delivery on time, a fair price. Had a bit of trouble putting windows on it though. Just lack of experience I guess works alright now. 14 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by super slick drive Bought to replace a SSD drive which had developed a memory controller fault This evo drive I consider to be an upgrade in performance , although the drives have very similar read/writes,this evo drive is definitely quicker and well worth the investment. married to a intel i5. corsair dominator ram , and gtx 650ti graphics , this drive hits windows 7 top score of 7.9. I have purchased quite a bit of stuff from scan , they are consistently first class in the quality of their packaging/delivery and service. Phill 19 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Great little product, smashing value for money, will probably buy again 09 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great price and performance. cheap considering how well it performs and fast delivery 31 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Real fast booter Having had one of these in my own desktop that was build just before Xmas 2013, and being impressed, I upgraded the Mrs' machine with the same item. I know the 840 Evo is not the latest model but it's plenty fast enough especially as prices have decreased giving extra bang for buck. It feels faster than the Vertex3 I have in my large workstation (though to be fair, as far as booting goes the workstation has a fair bit of specialist kit to initialise). Really can't complain about these 840 Evos though! 16 October 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works well Not too much to say about this. It's an SSD. It works as expected. It's small and not terribly expensive. It comes with a CD. I've got no idea what's on it. Who uses CDs in this day and age? It would be nice if it also had a USB connection as well as SATA for portability. My old OCZ drive has this. 29 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by very good As with all the reviews about this product, excellent and fast. 21 September 2014

Evo or Pro

Hi all, I'm looking to upgrade from Samsung 840 SSD to either Evo or Pro. I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit so I want super sonic speed.

What I'm wondering is which SSD is faster Evo or Pro? Written 18TB to my SSD and it's become slower than my 7200rpm Hard Drive.

I heard the Evo uses system RAM which isn't an issue since I have 16Gb's DDR3 1600Mhz.

Answer: 
The 840 EVO would be the faster HDD, because of the RAPID mode technology.

Answer: 
I believe pro is faster and EVO is the cheaper option.
There is a technology called RAPID which the drive can use on supported chipsets which allows you to use ram for some caching to increase performance, you can set this up in the provided software if you want.

Answer: 
In theory, the PRO is faster but the EVO has an updated controller. Whichever you opt for, I'm sure you wont be disappointed. I would however advise you to download Samsung Magician which will allow you to update the Firmware with ease. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
I believe the Pro is faster overall, but you may as well go for the 850 Pro if you are considering a 'Pro' at all.

The EVO doesn't sue RAM unless you enable a certain gimmicky feature in its drivers to 'accelerate' things, but benchmarks I saw online somewhere didn't show it to make things much faster actually.
