John Conner: just bought the 1tb
mclaine33: Excellent review! Thank you! I think I will go with the 840 EVO. I need to decided should I get the 750GB or 500GB one though....
ajazio: I would have loved to see a RAID 0 performance review of the EVO. I want to know how the turbo write functions in RAID 0.
leefuji: do you know if the 1TB Evo is a bit faster than the 750GB Evo?
leefuji: The Samsung 830 is still the king when it comes of reliability compared to the 840 / 840 pro. It's not always about speed. These puppies are fast no matter what unless you're a number junkie who gets happy about scoring 1002 over 1000 on a benchmark =P. Can't comment about the 840 Evo since I don't have one and its still a bit new.
TheMankyTube: Were cables included?
Dallas Henderson: So which one faster, the 840 Pro or the 840 Evo
satish890: i have already + powercfg /h off
trust me i have done everything to squeeze out all the space i can from the drive
now back to my question is over provision really necessary ? will there be any significant performance loss without it ?
digitaltactics: turn of system restore on your dive some time will give you some time 16 to 30 gb more space
SteelCity1981: damn samsungs magician software really boosted those numbers which i'd imagine would really help for those on SATA II interfaces overcome the bottleneck of SATA II controllers since it will be using the system ram to cache it. the software basiciy turns your SATA II or SATA III interface into a virtual SATA Express interface.
SteelCity1981: go to ebay and type in the search Samsung 840 EVO 250gb you will see one selling for 164 dollars brand new with free shipping, that's the cheapest price I have seen on the net by far for a 250gb version. retail price of these are going for around 185. and because of that I bought it. so far so good, comes with a 30 day money back guarantee can't beat that deal and it made a huge diff in performance and it gave me an extra 50 minutes of battery life over my old HDD I had in there.
Bo Penstoft: Good Review! I would love to see you take two 250GB into RAID 0 and test it with or without the RAPID activated!
ajazio: Hi, Can you do some more test to see if the EVO series can make a good boot disk. More specifically I am interested in having 2 840 EVO 256 GB disks in Raid 0 as my boot disk. I would like to know the performance difference between this configuration vs a single EVO boot drive. Also do you know if anyone has done comparative tests of single 840 pro disk boot disk vs 2 840 pro disks in Raid 0.
Zachu89: I have 2x Samsung 830 128gb in Raid-0, but I need to change to AHCI as I've bought a 2tb HDD, and my MB only has one sata controller, so its either Raid or AHCI if I want to use my 2tb HDD.
Will that cable that came with the notebook kit do the job with transfering all my files from my raid setup over to the new Evo drive, so I can just plug and play instead of installing everything again?
gwp72: Awesome review Thank you so much :)
LLOYD19851012: I have a Samsung 120Gb 840 basic SSD with 10Tb write history, would you recommend I upgrade to an Evo or keep the SSD I already have?
WAWProductionsAU: Man, this SSD rocks (I just installed one on my editing rig).
I do have a question though...
If I enable RAPID (via the SSD Magician software) will the lifespan of the drive be shortened?
mg1athecat: Thank you so much, I greatly appreciate.
mitrooper: Should be out now, I bought two 1TB Evos yesterday.. :)
satish890: should i enable over provision for my new 250gb evo ?
i really need all space i can get for my games
stan iwtre: rufio?
Evan Heminger: You probably won't need one, since the 840 Evo is 2.5" and your laptop probably uses 2.5" drive mounts.
ammo769: just ordered the 1TB Samsung 840 evo. were do I get the notebook kit ?
waajid21: My mind was blown when you opened the cases to see how small the implementing silicon actually was, soon they will be able to fit 2-4TB inside something that small and at those speeds. DROOL.
SmartxGuyx420: wait so which one performs the best, evo or pro
CommanderMan30: When does the 1TB evo come out?
Hemant Giri: i have a wired question that no one answer can u help me out in rapid mode will it support raid 0 and will it be more???? speed
Danny Lim: Obviously Volatile Memory (SDRAM) has the highest memory bandwidth because distant is short to travel, and therefore, you get magnificent 4k reads, lower access time, sequential reads & write, 512k, 16k, and so on so forth.
PanzerIV: Oh well, just bought at chrismass a Samsung 840 250Gb and now there's a new one that will have write speeds easily 2x better, great x_x. As I see in Canada it's currently unavailable and will prolly be overpriced for a few months anyway. With this EVO version, I now see no point into going with the Pro version for most consumer.
Petri Ronkainen: Is anyone try a Raid0 with evo drives? can there use cache mode with Raid? and how fast it could be?
L4NS0N: I watch quite a lot of pc reviews and this comes at the top!
rogerfrantzen1: Can you do a unboxing on the razer naga 2014
Eric Carter: Nice video. A bit long but overall really good. Just for clarification, is the Samsung 840 Evo 500GB SSD faster than the 840 Series Pro 512GB SSD? Keep up the awesome work!
BreakfastOfChampionz: tender loving care nand
Chem-Engineer: Can you do a giveaway on the 750GB 840 evo
MrBluMango114: Mr.CustomPCReview, I love your videos really much and I just want to ask you if you can upload more frequently? Thx and keep up the good work!! :D
PCMiscellaneous: what camera settings do you use for your videos? like FPS, aperature, shutter, etc.
Seero Boarder: Which do you think would perform best in RAID 0, 2 840 Evo's or 2 840 Pro's?
Garrett Black: just buy a ssd with lots of space (120gb or more) and good reviews. if you compare the speeds your head will spin and you will take a Long time to choose one.
Jinto117: Wow, so much chassis space is wasted on the 256GB drive.
0rac1eF0rk: I guess that I can no longer call myself a Corsair loyalist.
Danny Lim: I got SAMSUNG 840 PRO 256GB model. It runs exceptionally fast and it has more LPDDR2 SDRAM Cache, compared to 128GB Model and a little bit more boost on IOPS, Sequential Reads & Write, as well as 4K Reads & Write which is very important since data are written in 4k blocks that drastically alter loading time for Windows Boot time, Games, Video Encoding, Rendering, and so on so forth.
Custom PC Review: Haha yeah, I started rambling. I need to script some of my videos in the future. Thanks though. =)
Custom PC Review: Yes, initially when the 840 launched last year I had my reservations on TLC NAND's write endurance just like everyone else. We can estimate TLC NAND's endurance all we want, but Samsung's TLC NAND has been tested internally through Samsung at 2,500+ P/E cycles. Hardware info also torture tested two Samsung 840's. One of them lasted 2,945 P/E cycles and the other lasted 3,152 P/E cycles before the first error. That said, given a choice of TLC and MLC, if you can afford MLC then yeah go for it.
davmrls: You lost me on 840...LOL....good review.
Danny Lim: Go to Google.com
Type SAMSUNG 840 PRO Ubergizmo
It'll direct you the estimate of Write Endurance between MLC & TLC NAND Flash Memory.
Danny Lim: MLC is always better than TLC because it stores 2-Bit per Cell which holds 4 States, and therefore, it delivers about 3K P/E Cycles on average for consumer product only whereas TLC stores 3-Bit per cell; however, it lacks Write Endurance or Program/Erase Cycles that goes up to 1K Program/Erase Cycles. So, that's why TLC is cheaper than MLC NAND Flash due to lower Write Endurance and it has slower Sequential as well as 4K Queue Depth of One which is very important for computer day to day.usage.
subangracer: Nice review
