Samsung 840 MZ-7TD

On the other hand, the difference in everyday use should not be overly dramatic. Boot and load times are similar with all modern SSD, something that is also evidenced by the more general PCMark benchmarks

OCZ Vertex 3 Series

Keeping the energy consumption down is especially important for mobile devices, as it will ultimately have an impact on the battery life. So it seems that the Vertex 3, though fast, does not score highly in this area

Kingston SV300S3B7A/480G

I have one issue with the V300: There's nothing particular in it that would differentiate it from the other SandForce based SSDs. While Kingston said they did lots of customization and worked closely with SandForce/LSI, at least in our testing there...

Samsung 830 Series MZ-7PC

And boy, does it cook. The 256GB Series 830 SSD we tested matched the fastest second-gen SandForce drives, such as OCZ’s Vertex 3, in nearly every benchmark, and it exceeded them in some. The 830 Series’ sustained read speeds stayed north of 500MB/s,...

OCZ Vector 150

With fast performance and a good warranty, the OCZ Vector 150 is a great SSD for first-time adopters. It's not a worthwhile upgrade for the original Vector drive, however.
