Description

With 840 EVO, your upgrade becomes simple and quick. Using a SATA-to-USB 3.0 connector provided in the laptop upgrade package, for a data size of 100GB, you can migrate all the data from your HDD to 840 EVO in only 24 minutes-just a third of the time needed for a SATA-to-USB 2.0 connector offered in some previous models. Using the One-stop Install Navigator software, your SSD installation will be a snap. The Auto Install guide included in the toolkit will guide you smoothly through the whole installation process. The Samsung Data Migration software helps you through the migration with a straightforward three-step process, recommending user options so that you can migrate your data in the optimal way. What�s more, you can conveniently monitor, manage and maintain your new SSD with the Samsung Magician software that�s also offered in the One-stop Install Navigator toolkit. Samsung Magician features tools to help you maximise performance, including benchmarking, advanced OS optimisation, disk health status tracking and over-provisioning settings. 840 EVO makes your upgrade a simple job, and your PC�s awesome performance will leave you feeling glad that you did.

Just as delectable dishes are made from the best ingredients, Samsung combines the finest components to create superior-quality SSDs. Samsung uses the best quality NAND flash memory chips from its own fabrication lines for SSDs. Only the chips with the highest quality, top performance and greatest longevity potential are selected for SSDs, the most demanding of memory applications. With all the components, including controllers and DRAM, produced by Samsung, the quality of your SSD is assured. Advanced new firmware that optimises how the components go together enables Samsung to serve up the right combination for your PC�s best performance and reliability.
