The 128GB Samsung 830 is nearly two and a half years old which puts it at a significant disadvantage to more recent models. With peak and average sequential read/write speeds of 512/323 and 410/239 MB/s it's not too shabby, especially considering its age. The sequential figures actually match the current group leaders. The small file 4K peak and average read/write speeds of 22.5/60.3 and 17/40 MB/s are not as impressive and lag the group leaders by 50%. Reduced small file performance weighs on the 128GB 830's effective speed which is 376 MB/s and 20% lower than the average of 453 MB/s for the highest voted group leaders. Finally comparing the 128 and 256GB versions shows that the larger drive has a superior performance profile, which is not uncommon for SSDs but newer models from Samsung don't share this trait. [Feb '14 SSDrivePro]
