Samsung Electronics expands SSD array
Vendor says consumers will have more options for content storage with the 750 EVO SSD range
Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, a manufacturer of advanced memory solutions, has announced worldwide availability of the 750 EVO solid state drive (SSD) in 120GB, 250GB and an all new 500GB capacity.
The 750 EVO SSDs provide mainstream consumers and PC builders with an efficient migration path from hard disk drives (HDDs) or slow performing entry-level SSDs to a faster and more reliable storage solution for every day computer use.
"Samsung is committed to constantly evolving and providing high-quality memory solutions that fit general consumer needs," said Un-Soo Kim, senior vice president, Branded Product Marketing, Memory Business at Samsung Electronics.
"We have seen high consumer demand for our 750 EVO in the 120GB and 250GB capacities, which have been available in select emerging markets since last year.
"We want to meet the consumers' expectation who seek a reliable memory solution to extend the longevity of their existing computers in an easy and effective way. By adding the 500GB version to the current 750 EVO line-up and supplying the drives to more regions, consumers who need high data consumption will be better served."
Extending Samsung's heritage of offering cutting-edge memory solutions, the 750 EVO SSDs leverage Samsung's advanced NAND flash technology and are packed with the company's proprietary TurboWrite, Dynamic Thermal Guard protection and RAPID Mode features that together contribute to their high performance.
The company said the drives are also equipped with Samsung's powerful MGX controller, providing the 750 EVO SSDs sequential read and write speeds of up to 540MB/s and 520MB/s respectively, when TurboWrite is used.
The 750 EVO line-up is an ideal PC upgrade option that will turbo-charge users' computing and multi-tasking needs at their home, school and office. With Samsung Data Migration and Magician software, upgrading to the 750 EVO from existing storage device is quick and easy. The SSD also features reliable AES 256-bit hardware encryption to ensure stored data remain safe and secure. Unlike an HDD, the 750 EVO SSD has no moving parts, so consumers do not need to worry about the wear and tear on moving parts that can result in lost or corrupted data.
