Samsung 840 Evo is Screaming Fast SSD Drive

August 28, 2013

Samsung 840 Evo SSD DriveI’ve talked many times previously about the benefits of an SSD drive. Rather than the traditional mechanical hard drive where platters are spinning around inside the enclosure, SSD drives are made of solid state memory. This makes them insanely fast, but they also cost more than mechanical drives.

Ideally you would install your operating system and your software on an SSD drive and then have a large mechanical drive for your data. If you are looking for one of the fastest drives available, look no further than the Samsung 840 Evo. It comes in a range of sizes and I have listed each of those sizes below with a link to Amazon and the price Amazon is currently showing for the drive.

If you have started your new computer with the Asus Z87 Deluxe motherboard I featured last week, adding the Samsung 840 Evo as the primary drive in the system would give you a great start on a screaming fast computer!
