The Samsung 256GB 830 Series Internal 2.5" Solid State Drive (SSD) is perfect for gaming, web surfing and playing multimedia files. It can boot up to your computer in as little as 15 seconds. Plus, it offers fast sequential read speeds up to 520 MB/s and fast sequential write speeds up to 400 MB/s. The 830 Series SSD is equipped with a 3-core ARM9 based MCX controller, toggle DDR NAND Flash and 256MB of DDR2DRAM cache memory. It features a brushed metal design and it houses no moving parts, so it's more energy efficient than other hard drives. Plus, at 0.28-inches thick and only 2.15 ounces, the Series 830 SSD is slim and lightweight enough to accommodate ultra-slim PC cases and ultra-slim laptops. For added convenience, the internal solid state drive comes with Samsung's Magician 3.1 software, which enables performance benchmarking, optimization, firmware updates, data security and over-provisioning.

Outstanding Performance in Multitasking
Samsung's fast random read speeds (up to 80,000 IOPS) maximize performance when it matters most. A Samsung SSD is the ideal solution for your everyday computing needs, such as web browsing, document creation, viewing or editing multimedia files, playing PC games, etc.
Lightning Fast Sequential Read Speeds
The 830 Series drives support up to 520 MB/s sequential read speeds, which affords lightning fast access to your files and lets you load large multimedia files quickly and smoothly
Sustained Performance & Unrivaled Reliability
Samsung SSDs are designed and built completely in-house. The Samsung SSD 830 Series drives are optimized for exceptional, sustained performance and unrivaled reliability through specially engineered wear-leveling and garbage collection algorithms
Toggle DDR NAND Flash
Samsung's 20-nanometer-class toggle DDR NAND Flash chips enable data transfer rates of up to 133 megabits per second (Mbps) - more than three times faster than conventional (40 Mbps) single-date-rate (SDR) NAND Flash chips
3-Core ARM9-Based MCX Controller
While most SSD makers rely on generic, dual-core controllers, Samsung has developed its own proprietary, triple-core MCX controllers that excel in multitasking and help to assure steady performance over time. Based on an ARM9 controller, its three CPU cores can execute multiple instructions such as reading data, writing data and optimization
256MB DDR2 DRAM Cache Memory
256MB of DRAM cache memory helps maintain stable random read performance, even if the access range is increased
