Upgrading your PC with a Samsung SSD is the most economical way to breathe new life into an aging PC. The 840 EVO reads, writes and multi-tasks at incredible speeds, enhancing boot-up speed, application loading and multi-tasking performance. It's more than an upgrade, it's a complete transformation of your PC.
From the Manufacturer
With upgrades to NAND, a new controller and firmware, the 840 EVO features the latest technology, while providing class leading responsiveness under everyday workloads, enhancing boot-up, application loading, and multi-tasking performance. Its 98K IOPS powers performance that is up to 10X faster than a regular HDD. And, Samsung's TurboWrite technology delivers dramatically faster sequential write performance. This 840 EVO has a storage capacity of 750 GB and comes with software for easy installation.
TurboWrite technology delivers dramatically faster sequential write speeds, boosting overall PC performance.
All components are designed and produced by Samsung.
TurboWrite for Faster Performance
Samsung TurboWrite technology uses an innovative write acceleration algorithm and a high-performance write buffer to dramatically boost the sequential write speeds for overall improved performance.
RAPID Mode for Efficient Data Caching
The 840 EVO includes Samsung Magician software with RAPID mode--an innovative DRAM caching enhancement which boosts PC performance by using idle DRAM as an ultra-fast buffer that improves system performance over time as the drive optimizes to your tasks.
Encryption Technology to Secure Your Data
The 840 EVO features Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) technology to encrypt your data and help keep your personal files secure. Because the technology is hardware-based, it eliminates performance degradation that can occur in software-based encryption.
Sleek, Sophisticated Design
At only 7 millimeters thick and weighing just 2 ounces, the 840 EVO Series SSD features a sleek, lightweight design. The stunning brushed aluminum design emphasizes luxury and refinement, but is durable enough to protect your data from loss due to shock, dust and corrosion.
All of the components of the 840 EVO are designed and manufactured by Samsung to ensure optimal quality, performance, and lifespan.
Included Software for Smooth Installation
This 840 EVO includes Samsung Data Migration software, which makes it simple to migrate your data, applications, and operating system from your hard disk drive to the SSD. In addition, Samsung Magician gives you all the tools to monitor, manage, and maintain your new SSD.
Easier-Than-Ever Upgrade Tools
Samsung's One-stop Installation Navigator provides a comprehensive guide for software installation, data migration, and hardware setup. The simple Samsung Data Migration software supports a powerful and unique "Custom Cloning" feature that simplifies the transition to your new SSD.

Top customer reviews
This drive comes with data migration software, which is a real plus. It doesn't include the USB to SATA adapter that the installation guide implies that you need, but if you're upgrading a desktop, there's a far better method you can use:
1. Install the data migration software from the CD onto your existing hard drive.
2. Shut down your system.
3. Open the PC's case.
4. Remove the data cable from your SATA optical drive and plug it into the new SSD.
5. Plug a spare power connector into the SSD (you can use the one from the optical drive if necessary).
6. Re-start your system.
7. Shut down everything that starts automatically (you can't migrate open applications).
8. Start the data migration software--it will find the SSD and transfer the files at full speed (a lot faster than using USB).
One benefit I don't recall seeing mentioned in other reviews is that virus scans of the C drive now take about half as much time as with the HD or SSHD.
I used Reflect to clone the drive rather than the software provided by Samsung, installing the new drive into a USB3 external housing and then switching the two drives. I also activated the Rapid software, which utilizes 1 gb of RAM to further speed things up.
Incidentally, if you're using most or all your RAM already, you may want to add RAM so the 1 gb Rapid takes doesn't slow you down.
I'm totally pleased with this drive on the basis of the about one month I've had it installed.
You should be aware that these single units do not come with USB adpter cables that enable you to migrate boot data to it before installation. This was not clear to me from reading the product information on Amazon or other places. Thus, I give the product a four start rating. Performance-wise, I would give it five stars.
If you intend to use this as a boot drive, get the kit version that includes a USB-to-SATA connection cable that will allow you to connect it to the laptop or desktop while you do the boot disk migration.
The data migration software that comes with the SSD drive works well. The documentation tells you that it cannot migrate open applications, so be prepared to go into your task manager and turn off both applications and processes that you want migrated to the new disk.
You will also need a bay converter to place the drive in an internal bay designed for 3.5 inch drives. I used a Thermaltake 3.5 Inch to 2.5 Inch SSD HDD Bay Drives Converter Kit. If you do not have enough internal SATA data cables, I recommend the Silverstone Tek 90 Degree SATA III Cable for SATA III connections to motherboards.
Some of the SSD kits come with both bay converters and cables.
