Has anyone recently bought a 13" 256GB SSD?

    I feel like so many newly ordered 256GB ssd are SanDisk.
    If you have recently purchased your 256GB MBP, can you post what you got?

    //Edit: Sorry, by 256GB ssd I mean 256GB MacBook Pro Retina

    Is this the new "problem" that everyone is going to start complaining about?

    How do you tell this? Not that I have a 13" rMBP but I'm curious. What problems are you trying to discern by SSD maker

    The OP is saying that the SanDisk SD0256F is slower than the Samsung SM0256F. Unfortunately, he's right.

    My 13" MBA has a SD0256F and gets around 550 MB/s write, while my 21.5" iMac has a SM0256F and has around 650MB/s of write.

    Meanwhile, read speeds are over 700MB/s in both SD0256F and SM0256F.

    In real world usage, the difference isn't noticeable unless one writes large amounts of data daily.

    We pay the same amount of money for a 256GB SSD, but it's like a lottery on whether we get the crappier SD0256F or the jackpot SM0256F.

    How can we tell which SSD type did we get? System profile?

    Just bought my mid range rMBP with 256GB SSD like 2 weeks ago

    Maybe I just got super lucky, but I ended up with the samsung display and storage.

    Here's my speed results.

    About 3 weeks ago and mine is a Samsung but I think my screen is LG (A020). Not worried though because my screen is fabulous.
