Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250GB & 1TB Drives Tested

28 thumbs up

Next up we ran the Compression Benchmark built-into AS SSD, an SSD specific benchmark being developed by Alex Intelligent Software. This test is interesting because it uses a mix of compressible and incompressible data and outputs both Read and Write throughput of the drive. We only graphed a small fraction of the data (1% compressible, 50% compressible, and 100% compressible), but the trend is representative of the benchmark’s complete results.

Regardless of the type of data used, the Samsung SSD 840 EVO series of drives offers consistent performance. There is no drop-off in write performance as the data become more incompressible, unlike the SandForce based drives featured here.

And this is what happens to the 1TB drives performance if RAPID is enabled.  As you can see, transfer speeds are all over the map. Of course, this data isn't necessarily representative of real-world performance because of the synthetic nature of the benchmark.  We've included strictly for reference purposes.

The 1TB drive is drool worthy.

(honestly, they all are)

I bought a 250, cannot wait for rome total war with my new rig. I also found games like OOTP Baseball run 10x times better on SSDs.

How does the drive perform when it's the primary boot drive with an OS on it and filled 25%,50 % and 75%.

Who uses their SSD with 0% of data on it and not as the boot drive?

What good are reviews of empty drives tested from another drive that's in safe mode.

It's all relative. If you want that kind of data, just look at out IOMeter tests. It near fills the drive and then hits it with a continuous read/write pattern of random workloads. You're asking an interesting question but if you look at the data and actually read about the testing, the information you're looking for is in there.

On one of my PCs, I use a 256GB SSD as boot drive and I have a 120GB SSD as my Steam drive.

I have a 480GB SSD that's going into another PC soon. It will be my OS drive and a 240GB SSD will be the Steam drive on it.

Both PCs will have platter drives for mass storage. SSD Prices have dropped a lot in the past few years,........

Solid-state drives are one of the best drivers on the market but they have a very high pricetag like this one for instance Samsung 840 EVO Series 1TB SSD it has a pricetag of $799. I have noticed that the price range solid-state drives start as low as $75 for a 30 gigabyte up to $799 for 1 TB. I am currently running a 256 GB hard drive I would like to upgrade the prices to high from me to buy one it would be nice one day see the prices drop down to a point where it would be affordable to upgrade to a new hard drive.

Check out amazon, the 1TB is 539... http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-2-5-Inch-Internal-MZ-7TE250BW/dp/B00E3W1726/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1385755631&sr=1-1

$799 for 1TB!! No way!! this is too expensive & not sure on the reliability aspect as well since this happens to be recently launched. I am quite contented & happy with my 240GB Kingston hyperx 3K boot volume. The advantage I notice in my piece of hardware is the sandforce controller which is very smart in terms of incompressible data handling & also manages the overall performance of the SSD better!

For those of us who are curious about the longevity of the new 19nm TLC there is an endurance test recently launched over at http://ssdendurancetest.com

I would be amazing to get this, these are such great drives. Maybe one day ;)
