Samsung has been aggressively bolstering its solid state drive line-up for the last couple of years.

Today we’re going to give you a taste of a couple of Samsung’s latest consumer-class solid state drives in the just-announced the 840 EVO series of products. As the name suggests, the SSD 840 EVO series of drives are
