Experience a brand new, faster performance*
840 EVO is faster than previous Samsung 840 SSD models, providing more rapid sequential and random read and write times for tasks. Samsung’s new 3-bit MLC NAND flash memory stores data efficiently, increasing both speed and reliability.* Whether it’s a heavy workload like video file editing or a simple task like a virus scan, 840 EVO runs virtually every job smoothly and quickly.* Multitasking is a simple job for this SSD, which can operate several tasks simultaneously.
Also, with Samsung’s innovative TurboWrite technology, 840 EVO also dramatically boosts the sequential write rate.* The drive’s random read rate for light workloads (QD1) is 10,000 Input / Output Operations Per Second (IOPS). To improve system-level performance, turn on the RAPID cache function on Samsung Magician software to use the PC’s free DRAM as a cache. Working more efficiently with the high-performing Samsung SSD 840 EVO will change your everyday computer usage.* Now, your computer will wait for you—not the other way around.

Reliability for consistently high performance
Toughen up your PC with 840 EVO so that it can cope with almost any daily life situation.
Resistant to minor shocks, vibrations and high temperatures (up to 70°C). With its robust strength, 840 EVO boasts a long life expectancy and a low failure rate. What’s more, Samsung offers a 3-year warranty to back it up.*
The reliability of 840 EVO does not apply only to its physique. Equipped with Advanced Signal Processing, 840 EVO automatically corrects certain errors so you can worry less about your data’s stability. Plus, using Samsung Self-Monitoring Analysis & Reporting Technology (SMART), you can track your SSD’s health status. SMART warns you of certain any unforeseen errors before they occur, so you’ll be prepared.
In addition, Samsung’s Dynamic Thermal Guard Algorithm in 840 EVO’s firmware monitors the temperature of the SSD, helping to prevent it from overheating. When the SSD is exposed to hot weather (up to 70C), the algorithm controls the SSD’s power supply to keep it cool. Plus, with 840 EVO your PC becomes lighter, which means you can carry it with you more.**

Simple and easy tools for a convenient upgrade
With 840 EVO, your upgrade becomes simple and quick. Using a SATA-to-USB 3.0 connector provided in the laptop upgrade package, for a data size of 100GB, you can migrate all the data from your HDD to 840 EVO in approximately 24 minutes—just a third of the time needed for a SATA-to-USB 2.0 connector offered in some previous Samsung models.
Using the One-stop Install Navigator software, your SSD installation will be a snap. The Auto Install guide included in the toolkit will guide you smoothly through the whole installation process. The Samsung Data Migration software helps you through the migration with a straightforward three-step process, recommending user options so that you can migrate your data in the optimal way.
What’s more, you can conveniently monitor, manage and maintain your new SSD with the Samsung Magician software that’s also offered in the One-stop Install Navigator toolkit. Samsung Magician features tools to help you maximise performance, including benchmarking, advanced OS optimisation, disk health status tracking and over-provisioning settings. 840 EVO makes your upgrade a simple job, and your PC’s awesome performance will leave you feeling glad that you did.
The key to easy use
A high quality, stylish island-type keyboard with a numeric keypad* makes typing easy. As well as a Fn Lock Key and improved arrow key layout, its ergonomic design features isolated keys with optimised spacing for maximum comfort and cleanliness as it helps prevent dirt from being trapped.

Integrated solution combining top-quality components
Just as delectable dishes are made from the best ingredients, Samsung combines outstanding components to create high quality SSDs. Samsung uses quality NAND flash memory chips from its own fabrication lines for SSDs. Only the chips with premium quality, performance and great longevity potential are selected for SSDs, the most demanding of memory applications. With all the components, including controllers and DRAM, produced by Samsung, the quality of your SSD is assured. Advanced new firmware that optimises how the components go together enables Samsung to serve up the right combination for your PC’s performance and reliability.*

Always be in high acceleration
If you are a speed demon, you will certainly enjoy the new level of excitement 840 EVO offers you. Thanks to Samsung’s TurboWrite technology, 840 EVO can deliver much faster sequential write speeds compared to the previous Samsung 840 model, tripling the speed from 130 to 410MB/s in 120GB drives, and doubling it from 250 to 520MB/s in 250GB drives. Utilising an innovative write acceleration algorithm and high performance write buffer, you can expect accelerated speeds and higher satisfaction from your PC.
Enjoy rapid performance by switching to a higher gear*
Like changing gears in a car, with Magician software you have the option of RAPID mode, enhancing performance by processing data on a system level through the use of free PC memory (DRAM) as a cache. Depending on your PC memory, you can expect high performance and excellent command processing, which helps improve with repeated tasking.
Encryption to help secure your data
When you take your laptop on the road, you expose your personal information to new vulnerabilities. But don’t worry, 840 EVO’s Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) security technology will help keep your data safe. The drive includes an AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption engine to help personal files remain secure, even if you lose your laptop. Being hardware-based, the encryption engine secures your data without performance degradation.
Help keep your PC performance safe from heat
When you’re immersed in your work, you might not notice that your PC is burning hot and struggling to keep up. With 840 EVO, your PC stays cool, even when you sometimes overwork it. 840 EVO includes Dynamic Thermal Guard protection, which monitors and maintains exceptional operating temperatures for the drive. The throttling feature can drop the SSD’s temperature when necessary to help protect your data and ensure the responsiveness you expect.
Increased battery life compared to previous Samsung models to keep you doing what you love
Enjoy doing more of what you love on your computer for a longer time. 840 EVO features lower idle power consumption compared to previous Samsung HDDs. This is important because PCs spend 80 to 90 percent of their time sitting idle. The drive promotes long battery life, which gives you time and flexibility when you’re on the go.
Add style to your PC
With the Samsung 840 EVO you not only get exceptional performance but design that emphasises luxury and refinement. Unlike previous Samsung SSD models that die-cast the surface using CNC-milling, 840 EVO uses both new structural engineering and C-cutting to diamond-cut the premium titan surface for a sleek and stylish appearance. Watch your PC be reborn with a premium new look that expresses its powerful performance.
Choose the capacity that’s right for you
With a wide range of capacities from a basic 120GB, a rare offering of 750GB, to the spacious 1TB, 840 EVO helps you find the perfect SSD for your PC upgrade. If you were previously reluctant to upgrade to an SSD because the capacities were lacking, now is the time to reconsider your SSD options. Because it is offered in the same capacities as many HDDs, 840 EVO helps remove the need to scale up or scale down the size of your drive. 840 EVO comes in ample sizes of 750GB and 1TB to satisfy your extensive storage needs. Plus, 840 EVO gives you a real 1TB drive running inside your computer. Choose the right-sized SSD for your PC, all with the superb quality that a Samsung-made SSD can offer.
