The 840 EVO-Series is a range of solid state drives that Samsung markets as an ideal upgrade for older PCs, or as a component in new ones. The EVO series offers speed upgrades over the step-down 840 line. It has improved NAND logic and a faster sequential read/write speed that makes a noticeable transfer speed difference over the 840 lineup. Included software also allows the drive to use PC memory as a cache to enhance efficiency in times of need. Other main features of this drive concern durability and security, including self-encryption of data (AES 256-bit), and self-regulating temperatures to keep performance consistent and protect against damage. This drive is also strictly more efficient than HDD drives while idling, which can help improve laptop battery life. There are a range of capacities available for this series.
