When it comes to SSDs, for most people reliability, customer support, product warranty and cost should be the primary concerns as you can't tell the performance difference from one SSD to another unless you use benches - which are tainted by the algorithms SSD makers use to get higher scores and increased sales. 99.9% of people would not be able to tell any actual system performance difference between the slowest consumer grade SATA II SSD and the highest benchmark performing SATA III SSD so it's silly to pay extra for performance you can't see.

There is a lot of truth in that, although SSD pricing is so competitive. A really good SSD doesn't cost much more than a mediocre one, so it pays to the research. Most readers of this site probably care about that extra performance -- not to say that we can tell the difference

I think more importantly, we read reviews like this so that we can avoid the bad ones.

Compressible data is occupies lesser space when saved with SF controller, so that means the OP space will increase and help other non-compressible data when it gets stored. There is no caching going on inside SF controllers. As the OP space eventually increases, the controller will have better response times on both kinds of data.
