Frequently Asked Questions
Does this come with a SATA cable?
The drive does not come with a cable. The box only has the drive, a brief user guide and the Samsung utility Disk. The utility disk contains the drive cloning software and the Samsung Magic software that is used to tune the drive after installation. You do not need a cable to install in laptops and most tower cases should have extra cables inside.
What's the difference between the 850 EVO vs the 840 EVO?
The 850 EVO uses Samsung's latest 3D TLC NAND which offers better performance and longer life than the 1st generation TLC NAND found in the 840 EVO.
Performance in the 250 and 120GB sizes especially are much improved over the 840 EVO. Warranty on the 850 EVO is 5 years vs 3 years for the 840 EVO.
