specially-engineered wear-leveling and garbage collection algorithms backed by a
generous 5-year limited warranty.

the sophisticated MDX controller is capable of maintaining peak performances

Business Friendly Features
The 840 SSD 840 PRO Series introduces three important hardware features for
businesses: Worldwide Name (WWN), LED Indicator support, and AES 256-bit Full
Disk Encryption (FDE). The first two features make it easier to integrate the
840 PRO SSD into server and storage systems while the AES Encryption helps
safeguard data against attack. By encrypting all information on the disk at the
hardware level, there is no detrimental effect on performance.
Plus, Samsung’s Magician software has been completely redesigned and includes
several business-friendly features including Drive Health Status, Total Bytes
Written (TBW), and Disk Scan & Error Reporting functionality. This allows IT
managers to monitor drive health and plan hardware replacement cycles.
