    There is no way of knowing but there is no reason to worry about it either.

    I had the Toshiba SSD, and upgraded to the OWC SSD (basically same speed as the faster Samsung SSD). I'd never be able to tell the difference between them speed wise. Its nothing to worry about.

    Interesting...so is the OWC really faster as they claim?

    OWC is the only real after-market choice if you want to increase the SSD size but at $550ish for 240 GB, seems rather expensive.

    It is faster when I ran comparable benchmarking. But so far for real world regular usage I haven't noticed a difference. It was definitely expensive for my 240GB version, but I couldn't afford the Ultimate 13 when I placed my order so this was my only option to upgrade. You should also factor in you can sell your old SSD, a 128GB Toshiba went for nearly 200 yesterday on ebay.
