Samsung MZ-MTE1T0 Overview

  • 1Description

The 1TB 840 EVO mSATA Internal Solid State Drive from Samsung is an mSATA solid state drive designed to provide a fast accessible storage solution for a variety of computers including ultra-thin PCs. With a SATA 6 Gb/s interface you benefit from enhanced data transfer speeds while remaining compatible with both SATA 3 Gb/s and SATA 1.5 Gb/s interfaces. This enhanced performance solid state drive offers sequential data read speeds of up to 540 MB/s and sequential data write speeds of up to 520 MB/s.

Along with enhanced performance this reduced size internal solid state drive features reduced power consumption allowing you to get more battery life from your PC when compared to traditional HDDs. Along with reduced power consumption, this drive remains cool under pressure through the use of Samsung's Dynamic Thermal Guard Algorithm that closely monitors the temperature of the SSD. Once installed this drive keeps your data secure with integrated 256-bit AES encryption, HDD password on BIOS, TCG Opal, and IEEE 1667 compliance.

Boost Productivity
The 840 EVO mSATA features fast sequential and random read and write speeds to complete tasks quickly. With Samsung's 3-bit MLC NAND, flash memory data is stored more efficiently, increasing both speed and reliability. Multitasking has also been simplified as this drive can operate several tasks simultaneously thus increasing productivity. Samsung's TurboWrite technology dramatically boosts the 840 EVO's sequential write rate while system-level performance is improved, while RAPID mode uses the PC's free DRAM as a cache.
With Samsung's Magician software you have the option of RAPID mode, enhancing performance by processing data on a system level through the use of free PC memory (DRAM) as a cache. Depending on your PC memory (DRAM), you can expect higher performance and more efficient command processing, which improves with repeated tasking. Boost into a higher gear to vastly improve QD1 random write performance to almost the same level as QD32.
With Samsung's TurboWrite technology, the 840 EVO can deliver much faster sequential write speeds compared to the previous 840 model. The drive's random read rate for light workloads (QD1) is 10,000 IOPS. Utilizing an enhanced write acceleration algorithm and high performance write buffer you can expect accelerated speeds, greatly improving PC performance.
Reduce Power Consumption
The Samsung 840 EVO mSATA drive supports Device Sleep (DEVSLP), letting you stay connected longer and power up faster. Your PC no longer needs to go into standby mode to conserve battery life, nor do you have to wait for it to power back on. 840 EVO features lower idle power consumption compared to HDDs. This is important because PCs spend 80 to 90 percent of their time sitting idle. 840 EVO promotes energy savings and longer battery life, which gives you more time to complete business tasks.
Keep Your PC Performance Safe from Heat
With 840 EVO, your PC stays cool, even when you sometimes overwork it. Samsung's Dynamic Thermal Guard Algorithm in 840 EVO's firmware monitors the temperature of the SSD, keeping it at an optimal operating temperature. When the SSD is exposed to hot weather or extreme temperatures, the algorithm controls the SSD's power supply to keep it cool. The throttling feature can drop the SSD's temperature when necessary to protect your data and ensure consistent responsiveness.
Simple and Easy Tools for a Convenient Upgrade
Using a SATA-to-USB 3.0 connector included in the laptop upgrade package you can migrate all the data from HDD to the 840 EVO drive quickly and efficiently. The One-stop Install Navigator will guide you smoothly through the whole installation process. The Samsung Data Migration software features a straightforward three-step process with options to help migrate your data in the most optimal way. Conveniently monitor and manage your SSD with the Samsung Magician software also included in the toolkit. Samsung Magician will help you maximize performance with benchmarking, advanced OS optimization, disk health status tracking and over-provisioning settings.
Protect Important Data
You can trust the 840 EVO's Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) security technology to safeguard your data. With AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption, you can enjoy enforced data security with a software-based encryption by simply setting HDD password on BIOS, or using TCG Opal IEEE 1667 compliant solutions for more advanced security management.

    Samsung MZ-MTE1T0 Reviews

    1TB 840 EVO mSATA Internal Solid State Drive is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big space and fast Finally SDD's with a good capacity for a reasonable price! Upgrade is easy: Buy a mSATA -> SATA or mSATA -> USB3 converter, use the free Clonezilla to copy your old SDD/HDD to the new drive (1:1 mode) with breathtaking speed, swap the drives and resize once the OS is up and running again. The Samsung Magician software (downloadable from their web site) is able to select then afterwards if you want to optimize your drive for speed, size or power consumption. The only thing we now need is a SATA case which allows to put four of these drives into one case..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Technological Marvel I think this is an awesome piece of technology, BUT, if you used an SSD recently, dampen your expectations a little. I put this ssd into a tablet and I am pretty sure that its performance is limited, slightly, by thermal constraints due to the tablet's form factor. If I put this ssd into a modest sized computer case I think it would probably be 10%-20% faster, but I'm guessing. I had another mSATA ssd that I purchased just last year from Mushkin, but not available in this capacity, and although this mSATA bested the one from Mushkin in nearly all tests in every review I read, the real world performance difference between the two is not really noticable to me, honestly. I still feel that this ssd is worthwhile, just for the added capacity alone, and the performance is still excellent. Be warned, if you use this or any other mSATA ssd in one of the small, form-fitting, mSATA enclosures you may risk damaging or destroying your ssd because these things get quite hot and they really need some kind kind of ventilation if they are being used continuously for 2 or more hours. Be warned, my Mushkin is dead now for this reason.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This chip is the bomb. I bought this chip specifically to test it as an mSata upgrade to a 60gb 5th gen iPod. It took me a month to get everything right, but the chip has been FANTASTIC! It does not have the overheating issues of other brands, and at twice the memory of the biggest ones available elsewhere, i cannot be more pleased. B&H had the best prices, and the fastest standard shipping. I am very happy with my new TeraPod!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Experience Setting Up A recent person had a problem installing this card, but I can't imaging why? I purchased this 1TB SSD from B&H yesterday, and installed it the same evening. EVERYTHING was seamless. I installed and started the Data Migration app, pointed tot he C: drive, it selected the SSD, then I let it go. A short while later it was done. No intervention whatsoever.It was so seamless that after it was done, I was not sure which drive the Dell Precision M6800 was booting from. It took me awhile to determine which drive was now C;, as it turns out it was the SSD (which is exactly the same size as my original C: drive). The one issue that I am concerned with is the fact that the recovery partitions were not migrated to the SSD, something that I need to follow up on.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Difficult Installation The Samsung Data Migration software does not work and I had to try quite a number of software cloning applications to accomplish the installation. Paragon cloning software finally did the trick at an additional cost of $. The SSD now seems to be working.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent mSATA SSD! I purchased this SSD to swap out my 512GB SSD in my new Dell XPS 15 (9530). It worked perfectly and my new laptop has just doubled its storage! Very fast boot up time, and smooth operation. I would highly recommend this SSD, and B&H customer service and prices are simply superb.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect upgrade Worked great out of the box, other than Windows being cranky about being cloned to another drive (but that's a problem with Windows). Also worked well in a USB/mSATA enclosure that I used when cloning my old SSD to it. This thing is fast (like most SSDs) and makes zero noise (it's an SSD, duh), and once I worked past Windows' issues -- I ended up just using my laptop manufacturer's recovery media to restore it -- I now have a little over 860GB of usable space (Windows reports 906GB, minus Windows itself and some programs). The price point was great too: my laptop manufacturer wanted almost as much as this drive cost (about $90 less) to upgrade to a 512GB SSD from the stock 128GB, and after stumbling upon this beauty I figured why not pay a little more and get double the capacity? I'm not regretting my decision! My only complaint is that it seems to get warmer than my laptop's stock 128GB SSD, but it doesn't get uncomfortably hot. My guess is that the higher density flash chips consume more power (more transistors in same space = more heat).
