SSD hard drives are faster, more reliable and a lot more efficient than standard hard drives (HDD). Durability and reliability are two things you can expect from an SSD. They are able to withstand knocks and shocks, making them ideal for use in laptops and netbooks. This doesn’t mean you can’t use them in computers - they provide a quick start up speed and a silent operation as well as being easy to install into your case.
What benefits does this SSD have?
This Samsung 840 EVO comes as a 120GB drive. This capacity is sufficient enough to run any operating system as well as storing your documents on your computer. The read speed of 540MB/s and the write speed of 520MB/s allows you to save data faster and recall it when you are in a hurry.
The connection seems smaller than my normal one, can I still use this in a desktop computer?
Although this SSD has a mini-SATA (mSATA) connection, it doesn’t stop you from using it in a normal desktop computer or even in a laptop with a standard SATA connection. However, you will require an mSATA to SATA converter.
