I'll be posting benchmarks and general impressions in this thread, but for now I have Thermal/Fluid Design homework.

Here's a mini-update.

I unpacked it last night after finishing the homework (so these pictures were taken about 7 hours ago, at 4:30am for me).

Not a full review for the site, I'm simply too busy with school to do it, but here's pictures of the box, contents and packaging.
Don't mind the quality, they were taken with my phone and a makeshift lightbox using a piece of paper and my desk lamp

You can see, its a simple box up front with some specs on the back. Comes with a warranty booklet, instruction manual, stickers and CD.
My only gripe here is that there isn't a 3.5" to 2.5" adapter for people who want to go that route (luckily I have an extra).

Will get it installed this afternoon once classes are over and get some numbers for all you guys!

Where would you say this fits in to the line up of Samsung SSD's, would it be too unpolite to say this is the poor mans Samsung Pro?? AJ.

From what we read the EVO may actually be a better, poor persons, Samsung Pro. Anything 256 Gib and up!

Only looking at other tests (not mine) this drive on the 250GB+ sizes can beat the Pro out.

The software included (I'll go into detail later) lets you use a RAM cache for the SSD, making it even faster.

I'm getting to the benchmarks ASAP, but I just spend 14 hours on homework between last night and today. I'm going to be running the benches on the clean OS install, when I get that done.

School first - we waited this long. WE can all wait some more! This thread is turning into AJay thread!

PS - IF your mind isn't blown brother, well you know the rest!

I believe the benches I saw showed the 500GB performing better than the 750GB, no clue why.

Just make sure you get an adapter if you're going into a 3.5" slot since it doesn't come with one.

It is pretty funny to watch, but that's also directed toward the general populous, who the idea of an SSD is still new and scary to.



So, update on the testing.
First, I thought the EVO SSD case was empty because it was simply that light. My Mushkin SSD felt HEAVY next to it!
Second, I got Windows 7 installed, WEI score is 7.9! Finishing up the updates and software (since I need the PC for school and work) this morning, but this thing is definitely fast.

Now, I'm not normally too impressed with bundled software on things like this drive. Samsung did amazing though, from the menu you can do:
- Performance Benchmark
- Performance Optimization
- Firmware Update
- OS Optimization
- Over Provisioning
- Secure Erase
- RAPID Mode

The interface is so easy to use, as soon as I restart from updates I'll be setting up RAPID Mode!

Does the regular 840 use RAPID Mode?
