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.

"Samsung is committed to constantly evolving and providing high-quality memory solutions that fit general consumer needs," said Un-Soo Kim, Senior Vice President of Branded Product Marketing, Memory Business at Samsung Electronics. "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."



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 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. The 750 EVO 500GB's MSRP (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price) is $149.99.

Samsung's 850 EVO 500 GB is selling for exact same price, so why should I buy this SSD over the 850 EVO?

So basically Samsung announces the worldwide availability of the 750 EVO. Because 750 EVO was already announced a while ago.

The 500GB version is new, which is the one announced. ;)

Anyway aye this will have to get quite cheap to be worth it. The cheapest ~500GB SSD here is the OCZ Trion at about €111, the 850 Evo - with its five year warranty - is €130.

Eh, considering this is planar TLC (i.e. bottom of the barrel dirt cheap), I was expecting 1 or 2GB capacities at an amazing price. 500GB? That's covered very well already...

I've got a 256GB Samsung 850 PRO as the primary drive in my HP Probook 455. I bought one of these HERE to install a 2nd hard drive. Since I've got a pretty tight budget...for now...I just put in the original 500GB hard drive that came with the laptop as a storage drive. I'd definitely like to replace the 5400RPM hard drive with one of these if the price becomes reasonable.

People buying small SSD's as boot drives are so funny... Why you do this!?!?!?!?! Small SSD as a single drive, fine. Sometimes you just don't need a lot. Like me in a crappy laptop that has a 120GB Crucial M4 from ages ago. It's the only drive because I just don't need more on that laptop. But such drive in power station like my PC, it's only really usable as a cache drive and nothing else. Otherwise you have to install stuff selectively on it and that's just dumb. And if you don't, you boot OS fast, but you still load most of the stuff from HDD (apps on SSD, data on HDD). Which again defeats the purpose of SSD.

I doubt this is ever going to be more than $10-20 cheaper than the equivalent 850 EVO. 750 is planar NAND and simply requires more die area to get to the same capacity as the 850.

But sacrificing 2 years of warranty just because this drive is cheaper(in retail) by 20-25 bucks doesnt make sense.
It does if you are "self insuring", or upgrading is going to happen in 3 years time.

If its not going to be cheaper than 850 by a significant margin, will this replace 850? Or are they going to keep 2 SKUs with little difference other than warranty.

If you we're referring to my post...it's not about choosing to purchase a smaller SSD. There is no choice...because of budget. The Samsung 850 PRO I have is the best(largest) I've ever owned....and it was a gift at that. I couldn't afford it myself. So..."Why you do this?" Perhaps we don't have the same financial means that are available to you. Be thankful. I'm just glad to have something that will allow me to actually play a few video games instead of watching others play them on Youtube.

Sorry bro, but your comment makes no sense.
I have a 60GB SSD 830 for OS only, and another 500GB SSD 840 EVO for the rest of stuff.
The 60GB is with Win10x64, Office,etc and is only 40% full, while the other with tons of games is 50% full. I use a 4TB HDD to store music, pics, movies, and images.
Why the hell in the world somebody would need more than 50GB for the OS only? How come this is dumb ? :)))

You do know partitions have been invented already, right? Like decades ago?
No. What if the drive fails? Do I lose everything? ;)

I have enough space and SATA ports for additional storage.
