The Sandisk Extreme II uses the 88SS9187-BLD2 controller, Marvel's latest, and Sandisk's own 19MM MLC Memory. On paper this makes an extremely good combination and the benchmarks agree. The Extreme II scored an impressive 1143 in the server orientated AS SSD Benchmark putting it amongst the more capable server drives. In terms of real world consumer performance the Extreme II also fared well achieving a real world speed index score of 570.5 MB/s, amongst the top three scores we have seen to date. The Extreme II has everything going for it apart from its price which is currently significantly above average and hurting its value rating. Because the Extreme is the newest SSD we have in our group test we expect prices will drop with time. Until then, however, there is better value to be had elsewhere. [Jun '13 SSDrivePro]

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]
