    This was the first SATA3 drive that I've tested and before this, I didn't think that there would be a need for such an upgrade on the SATA standard. I was totally happy with the throughput of my previous data storage setup based on the SATA2 units. Windows booted and games loaded way faster than when using regular HDDs. But now I realize that not all consumer level SSD units are the same.

    The Samsung 840 EVO is a really fast drive. This makes it a perfect choice for all kinds of uses. And while the speed is the main thing when speaking about SDD units, the storage capacity is also a key for several users. With the 840 EVO lineup ranging from the reasonable large 120 GB capacity to all the way up to one terabyte, there is no real need for a data storage HDD any more. And to make you feel secure about your purchace, Samsung offers a 3 year warranty to the drive! Top this with built-in 256-bit hardware AES based encryption engine and your data is really save.
