Samsung has lifted the veil on its new 840 and 840 Pro solid-state hard drives.
Having captured around 80 per cent of the global SSD market with its current portfolio, the vendor is keen to highlight its dominance of the category. And with these latest devices offering read speeds of 540MB/s and write speeds of 520MB/s, Samsung is calling them ‘the single best upgrade for your PC’.
“These two products are aimed at different types of customer and different types of usage but they’re both significantly better than other SSDs in terms of read and write speeds,” stated Stefanie Sears-Black, head of business development for memory in Samsung’s Note PC division, at the launch event.
The device comes with a suite of tools designed to make it as simple as possible for users to upgrade as well as a full upgrade kit, which includes all the necessary adaptors and cables along with an installation guide.
As well as offering superior performance, Samsung is making migration software available, which will create an image of a computer’s current hard drive and port it over to the SSD for an immediate and seamless upgrade process. At this time, the software can be downloaded at Samsung’s website but it will soon be included on disc as part of the SSD package.
In addition, Samsung will include ‘Magician’ software which is designed to monitor the performance of an SSD over its lifetime and will track and display wear and tear via a simple traffic light system while storage capacity will be tracked using a progress bar style display.
