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]

The Kingston HyperX Fury has the same controller as its HyperX 3K sibling; the only difference between the two drives is the use of cheaper Micron 20nm NAND in the newer Fury. Comparing the performance differences between the HyperX Fury and 3K shows that the newer 20nm NAND results in an effective performance decrease of around 30% for a price saving of just 12%. The Fury was never aimed at the high performance sector of the market but given the known compressible performance weaknesses of its Sandforce 2281 controller and its relatively non-budget price tag, the 120GB Fury will struggle to find rational takers in today's market. There are far better value alternatives available for just a few more dollars. [Sep '14 SSDrivePro]
