Samsung 840 250GB SSD Review - Benchmarks - DiskBench

Samsung's 840 returns for the second day in a row. This time Chris tests TLC flash paired with a tri-core MDX controller with the 250GB model. Will he love the low power or will the 240MB/s sequential write limit send him for a cold shower?

Note: In this test we use the Lenovo W530 Mobile Workstation and a SuperSSpeed S301 SLC 128GB SSD to move a 15GB block of data to and from the target drive. This is part of our real world test regiment. Roughly 45GB of data resides on the target drive before the '15GB Block' is transfer. The 15GB Block is the same data we built for the Data on Disk Testing and is a mix of compressible and incompressible data.

Transferring mixed mode data from the Samsung 840 the performance is very good, nearly as fast as the Plextor M5 Pro and SuperSSpeed S301 SLC. Writing data to the Samsung 840 through was not as good and the 840 scored the lowest on the chart.?
