Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., world-leading experts in advanced memory devices for over 30 years, is announcing worldwide availability of its 750 EVO series of solid-state drives (SSDs). The 750 EVO series are offered in capacity points of 120GB, 250GB and an all new 500GB version. The 750 EVO series are ideal for PC builders and mainstream users seeking to migrate from either a hard disk drive (HDD) or a slower-performing entry-level SSD to a more reliable and faster storage device for their everyday computing needs.
The 750 EVO series continues Samsung’s heritage of providing cutting-edge memory solutions, and features Samsung’s proven NAND flash technology as well as their proprietary TurboWrite feature, Dynamic Thermal Guard protection, and RAPID mode. Featuring Samsung’s own powerful MGX controller, the 750 EVO series of SSDs attain sequential read speeds of up to 540 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 520 MB/s (with TurboWrite activated).
According to Un-Soo Kim, Samsung Electronics’ Senior Vice President of Branded Product Marketing, Memory Business, “Samsung is committed to constantly evolving and providing high-quality memory solutions that fit general consumer needs. 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.”
Samsung’s 750 EVO line-up is a terrific upgrade option that will turbo-charge computing and multi-tasking experiences, whether for home, school or office. Included with the purchase of a 750 EVO series SSD is Samsung’s Data Migration and Magician software, making the move to a new SSD quick and easy. The 750 EVO series also feature AES 256-bit encryption to keep stored data safe and secure. Unlike an HDD, the 750 EVO SSD has no moving parts to wear or tear, meaning much less chance for lost or corrupted data.
The new 750 EVO 500GB SSD is backed by Samsung’s three-year limited warranty (or 100 terabytes written (TBW)) in more than 50 countries and areas, including the USA, Europe, China, Korea and other regions beginning in early June. The 750 EVO 500GB will carry an MSRP of $149.99 (29¢ / GB!). You can view the press release in its entirety here.
