    Default Samsung 840 EVO 750GB

    Samsung is bringing a few new features to the table here with the 840 EVO, but what's utterly special that we hope pushes those boundaries further ahead, is something new called RAPID Mode. Sounds simple enough, but the performance increases from RAPID are anything but ordinary. In short, RAPID will move you out of the data transfer slow lane and onto the digital Autobahn like you've never before experienced. Buckle up and let's take a closer look at the Samsung EVO 750GB and see just what this SSD can do.

    Nice review Jake! The RAPID feature on this SSD intrigues me; it has inherently built into it the capacity to create what is essentially a temporary RAMDisk partition while system memory isn't in use. This is something that is needed and most people don't even realize it x-). If this feature is consistent across all of the EVO lineup then I think I found my next SSD.

    Well said Mike, you're absolutely right. And I think that's part of the elegant beauty of it; people don't even realize it's running in the background. It's not like the performance boost is stealing system resources, it's just using idle power you already have avaialble. Samsung has really nailed a winner here. It'll be interesting to see what happens going forward.....will other companies respond with similar ideas?

    I see a downside but I am only judging from the screenshots

    Do I have to run windows to get the software to work? Is Samsung’s Data Migration utility a stand alone system that can do all OS's? How about Magician? ...and Rapid Mode? Do you see where I am going with this?

    I guess the point is ...Is the setup low level enough to run on just the ssd? regardless of OS

    Nice review by the way

    Good question Grumpy. I checked my notes from my discussion with Samsung, and I'm nearly positive those utilities are Windows-only. The stock mode performance numbers are what you'd expect to see on non-Windows installs. Still plenty fast, very good with incompressible data, but not quite the juggernaut without RAPID Mode enabled.
