Samsung 840 EVO 500GB RAID 0 SSD Report

Price, capacity, and most of all, performance. The Samsung SSD 840 EVO 500GB has it all, and it gets even better when we RAID a pair of them. (KRX:005930)

Available in five capacity sizes, the EVO is the most affordable Hyper-Class SSD available today. Specifications list the 500GB SSD 840 EVO as capable of 540 MB/s sequential reads and 520 MB/s sequential writes. Random read speed is listed at 98,000 IOPS at 4K, QD32. Random write speed is listed at 90,000 IOPS at 4K, QD 32. The SSD 840 EVO has a z-height of 7mm.

 

Samsung backs the SSD 840 EVO with an industry standard limited three-year warranty. The SSD 840 EVO comes bundled with Samsung's own data migration software and Samsung's Magician software.

 

The 500GB Samsung SSD 840 EVO is available from Newegg for the low price of $344 (69 cents per GB) at the time of writing. Since this is a RAID review, we are going to focus on performance, rather than features.

 

For a more in-depth look at EVO's feature set, I will refer you to Chris Ramseyer's extensive review.

 

Now let's see what kind of performance we can get from a pair of 500GB SSD 840 EVO's in RAID 0.
