Pros: RAPID mode, 7mm wide, high capacity (1 TB) available
Cons: IOPS a little low in comparison
For those who are unaware, RAPID mode uses up to 2GB of your system RAM as a cache for the SSD. What this basically means is that the things that you use regularly, will be cached to your RAM for super fast access, which depending on the speed of your RAM can lead to a real world performance increase of x10!
As an example whilst in RAPID mode, I ran AS SSD and got a score of 2312 (which in itself is a pretty crazy result). However running it another couple of times gave me a score of 8997! In comparison, my 840 PRO scores 900-1000
When comparing it to the 840 PRO, the EVO is a little shy on the IOPS side, however the boosts from RAPID mode basically cover any downfalls and more!
I bought a 250GB version to use as a dedicated SSD for steam / games, however it is available in 120GB, 500GB, 750GB & 1TB varieties as well.
As I said at the start, I have used a lot of different SSDs, but none of them have got me excited like this has...go Samsung!
