The 128GB Sandisk Ultra Plus proved to be a bit of a disappointment in comparison to its larger 256GB sibling. The 256GB version has more NAND modules which enable peak sequential write speeds in the region of 450 MB/s. On the 128GB version we saw a peak sequential write speed of just 279 MB/s which is significantly lower than the market leaders which also manage to hit the high 400's. Across the core performance metrics, the 128GB Ultra Plus is around 25% slower than the average of its top competitors and, unlike its 256GB sibling, really struggles to keep up with its direct competition. In terms of value for money the Ultra Plus fares a little better thanks to its reasonably low price tag but there are far better deals to be had in the 128GB category. [Feb '14 SSDrivePro]

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]
