Samsung currently offers very interesting solid state drives. Some boast outstanding performance, others – are built with inexpensive TLC NAND and come with a very appealing price tag. And our tests prove all of this: we are ready to discuss what we saw when we got our hands on a Samsung 840 Pro 256 GB and Samsung 840 250 GB drives.
File Copy Speed
We use AS SSD version 1.7.4739.38088 test to benchmark the speed of copying different types of files within a single partition the size of the whole SSD. The SSDs are tested in their steady state.
Copying means reading and writing concurrently, and the Samsung 840 with its slow TLC NAND flash is comparable to the SandForce-based drives with synchronous MLC flash. The flagship Samsung 840 Pro model, even though fast enough, cannot win this test. It is inferior to the Corsair Neutron GTX or OCZ Vector depending on the type of files.
