Past are the days when the SSD units were so expensive that an average computer user didn't have the money for them. As the prices have come down, the storage capacity of the drives have gone up exponentially thus giving one more reason to buy them.
This time we'll be taking a closer look at the Samsung's 840 EVO series offering. This particular EVO unit offers a whopping 750 gigabytes of storage space. This is enough space for most setups to be run with a single drive.

Samsung offer their SDD drives with different bundle configurations for different uses. You can go out and buy a stand-alone unit that contains only the drive itself, a bundle that includes 3.5" drive cage and the SATA<>USB Adapter or for example to buy a migration bundle for a laptop that includes an USB adapter. This adapter can be used to move the data from the old drive your are about to replace to the new Samsung SSD unit.
We'll be using a stand-alone kit in this review. This bundle includes couple of brief manual sheets and a manual/software CD.
