Add Storage to Ultra-Thin Laptop or Desktop PC

Offering 500 GB of storage in an ultra-thin form factor, the Samsung 840 EVO mSATA SSD is an ideal performance upgrade for the latest compact laptop and desktop PC designs. Despite its small size, the drive gives you plenty of room for all your apps and media, and it also delivers faster bootup and application launching.

TurboWrite for Significantly Faster Performance

The Samsung 840 EVO mSATA provides exceptional write speeds up to 520 MB/s thanks to an ultra-fast cache called TurboWrite. This allows your PC to handle bigger workloads so you can get work done faster.

RAPID Mode Improves Drive Performance in Real Time

RAPID (Real-time Accelerated Processing of I/O Data) Mode enhances disk performance by utilizing free DRAM memory as a cache. With RAPID Mode enabled, the 840 EVO mSATA analyzes your application and data usage and adapts -- optimizing performance and eliminating bottlenecks.

Tackle Everyday PC Tasks Without the Wait

With a faster controller and improved firmware, the 840 EVO mSATA is incredibly fast at executing common tasks. Higher random read performance translates to faster startup, shutdown, application execution, web browsing, and more.

Low Power Consumption, Longer Battery Life

The next generation of NAND combines with advances in the MEX controller to make the 840 EVO mSATA a remarkably efficient SSD. Device sleep mode ensures that when your ultra-thin laptop is idle, it consumes very little power. The drive also generates less heat than traditional SSDs and helps your battery last up to 45 minutes longer than using traditional hard drives.

256-Bit Encryption Protects Your Data

The 840 EVO mSATA features self-encrypting drive technology to safeguard your data. AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption keeps files secure without sacrificing performance. To ensure that you get the most of these features, the included Samsung Magician software guides you through the setup and maintenance of your drive.

Data Migration Software for Easy Upgrade

Samsung's Data Migration software makes it easy to upgrade your system to the speed, security, and performance of the 840 EVO mSATA SSD. A custom cloning option lets you exclude large media files from the cloning process and move them to another storage device to avoid a separate backup process.

Note that mSATA-to-SATA and SATA-to-USB connectors are sold separately.

Durable, Genuine Samsung Components

Samsung's rugged 840 EVO mSATA SSD is shockproof and vibration proof and is made from 100-percent Samsung memory components. Dynamic Thermal Guard protection ensures optimal operating temperature.

What's in the Box

Samsung 840 EVO Series 500 GB mSATA Internal SSD, Samsung Data Migration software, and Samsung Magician software.

This review is for the 1TB version of the 840 EVO mSATA. This drive represents a great combination of capacity, speed and cost, an excellent and perhaps your only choice if you need the 1TB size in an mSATA format.

***********Note updates below on using 2x840 EVO's to create a 2TB class SSD Laoptop drive!, and on ATA password security**********

I've owned many SSDs over recent years, using them both as primary drives in laptops and desktops, as well as a few for archive storage. Up to now, all have been in the 2.5" form factor. But, with a recent laptop upgrade to an HP 810 Revolve, I had to move to the mSATA format that the 810 requires. This led me to the 840 EVO mSATA. On my previous laptop, an HP 2760p, I had been using Crucial M500's in the 960GB size and the 2.5", so I can compare the two experiences with these TB class SSD's pretty directly.

Pro's
+Only TB class SSD in mSATA format at this moment. Outstanding value given size and speed!
+Fast in the absolute, very comparable to m500 (see benchmarks, below).
+mSATA format means you can use this in the ultra compact laptops and tablets that will only take mSATA.
+Samsung has a good reputation for speed and reliability.
+Samsung FINALLY supports the OPAL standards for hardware-based full drive encryption, and this works seamlessly with SecureDoc and Windows 7, meaning you get the benefits of a fully encrypted drive with NO speed penalty like you would incur with software-based encryption.

Cons
-Write life is going down as NAND sizes shrink, but this is true with all the latest SSDs. Eminently usable as a laptop drive under normal write loads with a 5year + life.

I ordered this along with the ZTC Skyboard USB 3 enclosure. Downloaded Samsung's Data Migration tool and off it went. Screaming fast transfer with the Skyboard; the whole thing (128Gb original SSD in Samsung Np9003xb) took less than 30 minutes... could be way less but I was doing other things while it copied.

When it was done, swapped out the drives and my Windows 7 x64 system booted right up! A few things to note:

1. When complete, there is a System partition (100Gb, 93% used -- this is the Windows boot partition), the main C: drive partition (about 447GB) and an 18+GB OEM recovery partition. No hibernation partition.

2. Windows update thinks it has never run; run that if you like.

3. Went into Samsung's Easy Settings tool and turned off Intel Rapid Start (under General); this is needed to recreate the hibernation partition. Reboot needed. Then go back to Easy Settings and turn IRS on; another reboot needed. You will then have a 4.8GB hibernation partition (space taken from C: drive).

4. Also under Easy Settings: adjusted the Speed Boot settings (included MS Security Essentials tool).

That's it. Wow, it is so cool to have 373GB of free space on my C: drive instead of 24GB or so... with VERY little effort. This was the simplest "drive upgrade" I've ever performed; the fastest too!

Well done Samsung!!

This drive is amazingly fast, I almost wish I got the 500GB version.

I upgraded my Yoga 2 Pro which came with a Toshiba THNSNH256GMCT. It wasn't exactly slow, but I wanted a bit more performance and I was having an issue with the system randomly freezing for 5 - 10 seconds. Below is the CrystalDiskMark Scores for both the old and new SSD. I should note I have Samsung Magician installed, 10% over provision and RAPID Mode enabled, so this may be inflating the benchmarks. I would say the drive feels significantly faster.

I would recommend this drive (the 250GB version) to any Yoga 2 Pro user, and be sure to install the Samsung Magician software.

Would have been five stars save for 2 disappointments:
1) it didn't come with a screw, so I salvaged one from my graphics card :D
2) Lenovo Energy Management for Win7 64-bit gives it a BSOD for some reason, despite it being completely fine on my HDD

Otherwise this thing is a beast. From off to fully productive in just under 30 seconds. I was using a 5400rpm HDD and it would take me at least 6 minutes or so.

It runs pretty cool too, lowering my laptop's highest temperatures by about 10 degrees Celsius (I have a Y500 dual-gpu gaming laptop). With optimizations, I'm getting ~1k seq read/writes, 55k random read, 63k random writes. In comparison, my HDD has 20 for seq and 140 for random. WOOT!! :D
