Samsung 750 EVO Series Gets 500GB Drive and Worldwide Availability

Samsung just let us know that they have announced worldwide availability of the Samsung 750 EVO SSD (SSD) series to both mainstream consumers and PC builders. This drive was only available in Asia when it first debuted in 2015, but has since been made available around the world and is targeted at white box system builders looks for good value and performance. Now the drives are readily available 50 countries and areas, including the USA, Europe, China, Korea, and other regions.

The Samsung 750 EVO SSD series is available in 120GB, 250GB and just recently a 500GB capacity.

Samsung SSD 750 EVO 120Gb & 250GB Storage Drives

We did a review on the Samsung 750 EVO SSD 120GB and 250GB drives earlier this year and found them to be great performing drives, but the price point was very close to that of their Samsung 850 EVO SSD series counterparts. For example the Samsung 850 EVO 205GB drive is priced at $88.39 shipped and has better performance numbers across the board for less than $5 more. That really narrows down the market for the DIY community, but system builders are always looking for the best bargain. Be sure to check out our review on the Samsung 750 EVO drives here!

Key features of the Samsung 750 EVO include:

  • Easy Migration: With Samsung Data Migration and Magician software, upgrading to the 750 EVO in an existing PC is quick and easy
  • Advanced Reliability: The 750 EVO features the same reliable data encryption as the 850 EVO. The self-encrypting drive (SED) security technology, AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption and Dynamic Thermal Guard ensure files will remain secure.
  • Fast Performance: With TurboWrite technology, the write speeds for the drive are significantly accelerated during data transfers.
