• Perfect for use in laptops and notebooks to replace your existing hard drive with a faster, quieter version
• MZ-75E250B/EUHow efficient is this SSD?
The Samsung 850 EVO has been designed to enhance the performance of your computer or laptop without using more power for it to run. The dynamic thermal guard protection constantly monitors and maintains ideal temperatures for the drive to operate. In doing this it keeps the temperature down to protect your data and maintain responsiveness, ensuring your computer is safe from overheating.
How secure is the drive?
This solid state drive comes with AES 256-bit encryption hardware, the same as they use in banks and hospitals, which allows you to keep your data and personal information safe and secure from thieves and hackers.
What difference does the read/write speed make?
The read/write speed of a hard drive is the main factor when starting your computer up. With a read speed of 540MB/s and a write speed of 520MB/s, this can potentially half your start up time, compared to using a 7200 RPM hard drive, and potentially be four times faster than a 5400 RPM hard drive. This can make a real impact on your computer if you are wanting to improve its performance.
How will a V-NAND drive help me?
V-NAND technology is a step above other SSDs. Instead of making the cells smaller to squeeze more in, it stacks them on top of each other. Silicon nitride layers also aid in preventing corruption caused by cell to cell interference, providing up to twice the average life span of other SSDs.
V-NAND technology not only lasts longer, but it uses up to 45% less power and delivers writing speeds of up to two times faster.
