Last summer, we got our hands on Samsung's 840 EVO and tested, and tested, and tested. There were some new technologies in play, some of which had a big impact on the benchmarks we were running. But once we wrapped our heads around the performance...

We initially had reservations regarding mSATA, not just the drives we have tested today but the socket as a whole. It is rare that reducing power consumption and perhaps most pertinently, a products footprint that performance will not suffer as a...

If you're looking for a high-performance mSATA SSD for your laptop, PC or storage product we have to concede this little drive really delivers.

The ultraportable laptop that inspired Intel to dream up the marketing label of Ultrabook also lead to a new fashion for small mSATA solid-state drives . With such a slim body it's unsurprising that Apple had to use a new storage form-factor beyond the...

The Samsung 840 EVO mSATA SSD is the first 1TB mSATA SSD to hit the market. It packs a powerful punch in performance and capacity for such a small form factor. Not only does it carry a lot of capacity through its unique design it also has strong...

In the past if you wanted a bigger mSATA SSD, your options maxed out at 256GB (Mushkin's Atlas was the only exception, though you had to sacrifice performance for capacity). For hybrid systems (i.e. PCs with a small SSD for caching and a hard drive for...

Unless you're sporting really old hardware, an SSD is the best sure-fire way to boost the performance of your desktop or laptop computer. There is so much choice now it's difficult to know whether there is a significant difference between various SSDs...

It’s a great upgrade for your little laptop, however, and all the drive you’re going to need for that tiny Steam Machine you’ve been fantasising about.

In years past, we worried about testing Samsung's smaller capacity SSDs, and I think Samsung worried about what we would come up with as well. Before RAPID, the smaller capacity drives with lower interleaving levels between the flash and the controller...

Samsung has gone the extra mile with their new line of mSATA SSD's. From extra large storage capacities, to exceptional transfer speeds to features that are uncommon in other mSATA SSD's. The Samsung 840 EVO mSATA is well deserving of our Editor's Choice...

If you read our SSD reviews often, you might have noticed we didn't run the battery life test today. The 840 EVO supports DEVSLP, but our Lenovo W530 doesn't. We're currently waiting for a new Lenovo T540 with DEVSLP support to arrive. When it hits the...

Alright, well that's about 4 days worth of testing on literally the exact same drive I tested about five months ago. Yay! At least I'm now running a far more comprehensive testing suite, so I guess it's still a win…I probably don't have to say this, but...

Starting with the design and build quality of the Samsung Evo mSATA drives we have a range of units which stick to the mSATA form factor for size and then pack the PCB with high quality components. That starts with the latest revision of the...

We said before that there was little to dislike about the range, and with Samsung seemingly having changed nothing except having made it smaller and lower power in the move to mSATA, that's still very much the case. The 1TB model is probably too...

The consumer-grade solid-state drive (SSD) market is getting more crowded every day. There are drives of every capacity and speed, fitting nearly every budget and performance niche. Announced last week , Samsung is soon to ship the 840 Evo series of...

Last year when Samsung first introduced the original 840 SSD, I had two reservations with the drive – performance and reliability. With the Samsung 840 EVO, I think Samsung has done a great job addressing both fronts, so let's start with performance....

International Review By thg.ru on -

Когда-то накопители с интерфейсом mSATA были не слишком ёмкие и к тому же не слишком отличались производительностью, однако уже сейчас компания Samsung представляет невероятно быстрое устройство Samsung 840 EVO mSATA ёмкостью 1000 Гбайт, да к тому же...

International Review By ComputerBase on -

In einem Punkt ist die Samsung Serie 840 Evo mSATA derzeit konkurrenzlos: Wer auf der Suche nach einem möglichst großen Solid State Drive für ein kompaktes System mit mSATA-Anschluss ist, kommt um die SSD der Südkoreaner nicht herum. Ein Terabyte...

International Review By HardTecs4U on -

Samsungs 840-Pro-SSDs wurden in der Presse in vielen Tests sehr gelobt. Bei genauerem Hinsehen wurde auf unserem Testparcours abseits der Standard-Benchmarks jedoch ein Schwachpunkt sichtbar. Zudem testen wir den vom Schwesterprodukt 840 Evo bekannten...
