Samsung 840 EVO 250GB Review

There really is no question about where SSD’s are going.  TLC NAND and future enhancements is going to keep the price trending downward.  I am interested to see how other manufacturers, that do not have the same level of control that Samsung has, can fare in this new market.  With 4-bit MLC NAND on the horizon in production drives, keeping performance up will be an increasingly difficult road to navigate.

Ok, so what does this mean when you add it all up?  It means that Samsung has put together a drive that leaves others in the dust at a price that everyone can afford.  The Samsung EVO has proven itself to be akin to a cost-effective sports car.  The use of TLC in the EVO keeps the prices down while technology like TurboWrite and parrellization keeps the speeds up.  Clever enhancements and new technology have provided a roadmap for the future. Bottom line, the Samsung EVO will have no issues standing tall among the SSD elite.  The real question boils down to… Is it worth your money?  Well, considering that you don’t have to shell out a ton of it ($147.oo USD) to get a 250GB EVO, I would say yes.

Some companies just have a knack for making their way into my life. My home and offices are populated with plenty of Samsung tech; I have a Samsung microwave, LED TV, Soundbar, Galaxy S3, headphones, Color Laser Printer, 2 Samsung Laptops, etc. Well, now Samsung wants to entice me with their 840 PRO Series SSD. Does Samsung's high end SSD have what it takes to unseat our current SSD choice, the OCZ Vector?
