Samsung 840 EVO 500GB SSD








The 840 EVO uses a 7mm z-height case, so it will work in many new Notebook and Ultrabook designs.






The drive consists of the Samsung MEX controller, one Samsung DRAM buffer, and four NAND flash packages located on the other side of the PCB.




This configuration is quite a bit different from the 750GB and 250GB models we've tested. The 750GB drive had eight NAND packages, and the 250GB only had two.
