Excerpt: We love speed… and after reviewing the Samsung 840 Pro , we were chomping at the bit to get the 840 EVO in the lab. Not only does the newer EVO model use newer 19nm 3-bit Triple-Level Cell vs that of 2-bit MLC found in the 840 Pro, but it also features a much more attractive price-point and an...

Samsung SSD 840 EVO Series 750GB Solid State Drive

Conclusion: TRIM Performance: While SSDs offer many benefits, there are some downsides to using flash memory. One of the biggest issues people run into is performance degradation. Over time, an SSD will run out of fresh blocks and will have to write over data the file system has marked as deleted.
Pros: Available in 120GB, 250GB, 500GB, 750GB and 1TB capacities, Features RAPID mode and TurboWrite technology, Excellent sequential read and write speeds, Very good random read and write performance, Performs equally well with compressible and incompressible data, Good looking, ultra-slim design, SAT...
Cons: Samsung's 3-bit MLC NAND is not as durable as 2-bit MLC NAND
Conclusion: The ludicrous numbers obtained through RAPID Mode will no doubt hog the headlines, but the real star of the 840 EVO show, we feel, is TurboWrite. Using a good-sized portion of NAND in single-level-cell mode to speed-up all incoming writes makes implicit sense on a consumer drive.
Conclusion: I was extremely excited about Crucial's M500 because it was the first reasonably priced ~1TB SSD. Even though its performance wasn't class leading, it was honestly good enough to make the recommendation a no-brainer. The inclusion of features like eDrive support were just the icing on the cake.
Summary: The Samsung 840 EVO in its miniaturised mSATA form remains a force to be reckoned with. It effectively met the performance of the Samsung 840 EVO we first tested last year, and in some metrics was found to slightly exceed those results.
