Product details

The Samsung 250 GB 840 Evo 2.5" Internal SSD is the ideal way to update your computer to perform faster and better, every day.

SSD is the smartest choice

Representing an advancement over standard hard drives (HDD), SSDs don't use moving parts, so they can read and write faster, use less power and are almost silent. Not only will the Samsung 840 Evo SSD ramp up your PC's performance and reliability, it will make using your computer a more pleasant experience.

You'll love the new level of excitement offered by Samsung's TurboWrite technology, which delivers much faster sequential write speeds compared to the previous 840 model. This doubles the speed from 250 to 520 MB/s in this 250 GB drive. An innovative write acceleration algorithm and high performance write buffer give you accelerated speeds and more PC satisfaction.

Watch your computer evolve

This Samsung SSD lets your machine carry out commands incredibly quickly, leaving more time for you to do other things.

Enhanced sequential and random read and write times speed up every task, while Samsung's new 3-bit MLC NAND flash memory provides more efficient data storage, increasing both speed and reliability.

Whether you're carrying out heavy video editing or a simple virus scan, the 840 Evo Drive runs everything smoothly and quickly. Its multitasking abilities are exceptional, as it runs almost three times faster than an HDD.

Advanced hard drive technology

The inclusion of Samsung's TurboWrite technology significantly increases the 250 GB 840 Evo Internal SSD's sequential write rate. Its random read rate for light workloads (QD1) is an industry-leading 10,000 Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS).

The RAPID cache function in the included Samsung Magician software can be switched on to use the PC's free DRAM as a cache, further improving system performance. This combination of proprietary SSD hardware delivers superior lag-free performance that spells the end for waiting around for your computer.

Hard-wearing hardware

Robustly designed to withstand shocks, vibrations and high temperatures, the 840 Evo 2.5” SSD offers an impressively long lifespan and low failure rate, complemented by a three-year Samsung warranty.

High-grade components, including best-quality Samsung NAND flash memory chips, ensure top performance and superb longevity potential for even the most demanding memory applications. Advanced new firmware optimises components interaction for best performance and consistency.

Advanced Signal Processing helps to automatically correct errors for increased peace of mind about data stability. Samsung Self-Monitoring Analysis & Reporting Technology (SMART) lets you track the SSD's health status, warning you of any unanticipated errors before they happen.

The disc's temperature is monitored by a Dynamic Thermal Guard Algorithm in the firmware, preventing overheating. This algorithm controls the SSD's power supply to keep it cool whilst making your PC lighter and more energy-efficient, for enhance portability.

Trustworthy and tough, the high-performance Samsung 250 GB 840 Evo 2.5" Internal SSD features a stunning brushed metal construction, slim design and the facility to upgrade easily and quickly.
