I bought the 250GB basic a couple of weeks ago and was running comparisons with the Kingston HyperX and corsair GT and you've pipped me to the post again
I also found the same results with anvil and wandered what was going on
Brill review as always Bryan

Review of the 840?

Great review! Are you planning to do one on the non-pro version of the 840?

I was thinking about buying the 830, but the sellers are apparently running out of stock. While 840 Pro seems to be a great drive, is it really worth the extra £60 compared to the non-pro 840 or the £30 over the 830? I'm taking about the 256/250GB versions.

Lasts forever in a day (supposedly) and blisteringly fast? Think I found my SSD of choice when I eventually get one.

Good review as always

Great review. I currently have the 64GB 830 series for my OS which is very small when having 16 GB ram. I reduced the page file to 4GB and freed lots of GB by changing sleep settings, but I really don't want to have to mess with that in the first place. So I'm playing games from my 1tb WD green LOL. Thinking of upgrading my OS drive to 120GB and playing games from the 64GB one.
