SAMSUNG Releases 500GB 750 Evo SSD
SAMSUNG is killing it in the SSD market. Not only did they introduce 3D NAND, but their drives have had a broad range of compatibility while being reliable. Now, SAMSUNG is trying to help the budget buyer by keeping their 750 EVO series alive. At a $150 suggested retail, the new drive looks like an attractive offer for the performance and stability.
At first glance, some might thing that $150 doesn’t seem like a great deal since the 850 Evo is commonly found at the same price. However, the suggested retail on the 850 is actually $180. Considering that the 750 could go for less than the suggestion, we may see the drive sell for around $125 which would make it more compelling. This is up to retailers to decide, but with good sequential read and write speeds, the drive looks like it will be a solid budget performer. Check out the full PR below for more details!
SEOUL, South Korea–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., an expert provider of advanced memory solutions for more than three decades, today announced worldwide availability of the 750 EVO solid state drive (SSD) in 120GB, 250GB and an all new 500GB capacity. The 750 EVO SSDs provide mainstream consumers and PC builders with an efficient migration path from hard disk drives (HDDs) or slow performing entry-level SSDs to a faster and more reliable storage solution for every day computer use.

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.”
Extending Samsung’s heritage of offering cutting-edge memory solutions, the 750 EVO SSDs leverage Samsung’s advanced NAND flash technology and are packed with the company’s proprietary TurboWrite, Dynamic Thermal Guard protection and RAPID Mode features that together contribute to their high performance. Also equipped with Samsung’s powerful MGX controller, the 750 EVO SSDs provide sequential read and write speeds of up to 540MB/s and 520MB/s respectively, when TurboWrite is used.
The 750 EVO line-up is an ideal PC upgrade option that will turbo-charge users’ computing and multi-tasking needs at their home, school and office. With Samsung Data Migration and Magician software, upgrading to the 750 EVO from an existing storage device is quick and easy. The SSD also features reliable AES 256-bit hardware encryption to ensure stored data remain safe and secure. Unlike an HDD, the 750 EVO SSD has no moving parts, so consumers do not need to worry about the wear and tear on moving parts that can result in lost or corrupted data.
Samsung will offer the new 750 EVO 500GB to consumers with a 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 starting in early June.
