The 840 Pro is stunning. Samsung have created a completely in-house package including both the controller and their own new 21nm toggle mode NAND. On release (Oct '12) this was the fastest performing deep queue depth consumer grade SSD available. Fast forward six months (Apr '13) and the 840 Pro still holds both the random read/write deep queue depth speed records of 384 MB/s and 326 MB/s, impressive considering how fast the SSD space tends to move. There are no obvious weaknesses, in-fact the 840 pro takes first place in nearly all of the speed categories and is only seriously rivalled by one drive, the OCZ Vector. To conclude, in terms of both outright performance, particularly server orientated, and value for money the 256GB and 128GB 840 Pros are amongst the top handful of drives currently available. [Jun '13 SSDrivePro]

The 240GB Kingston HyperX Savage sports a Phison PS3110 controller. This marks a welcome departure from Kingston's use of Sandforce 2281 controllers and for the first time in years gives Kinston a shot at competing in the enthusiast/performance segment of the SSD market. Comparing the HyperX Savage and Fury shows that the new Phision controller has an effective speed that is around 40% faster than the Sandforce based Fury. But then comparing the similarly priced OCZ Vertex 460a and Savage shows that, although the overall effective speeds are similar, the Vertex has three times faster 4K Mixed IO speeds. The HyperX Savage is very good for typical consumer use but power users with more demanding I/O loads should probably look elsewhere. [Jun '15 SSDrivePro]
