You do know that XBench hasn't been updated in over five years. Its results are pretty inaccurate. A better solution is to use GeekBench.

I was most interested in an app that would allow us to get a somewhat accurate idea of how the samsung stacks up against the toshiba in 64gb 128gb and 256gb sizes. I even read in another thread that while the 128gb samsung is faster than the 128gb toshiba the opposit is true when comparing the speeds of the 256gb versions. I am hoping to clear this up somehow.
I wonder if aja system test is a better alternative?

as already posted in another thread:
I know little about hard disk benchmarks, but the Samsung looks like it is quite a bit faster than the Toshiba. What does this translate into in the real world? Will I notice it when copying files? Starting up programs?

More importantly, could things be improved with a firmware update in the Toshiba or something like that?

Each reading varies by about ~10mbps lower as the tests run though, thats the fastest it will achieve, with nothing else running at all, I'm happy :D
