    Hmm interesting. Have threads popped up yet with users complaining about their Toshiba ones?

    If you look closely, Anandtech refers to a MacRumors thread that we started here 2 months ago. That said, the Samsung drive does appear to be a nice silent upgrade for those lucky enough to get it.

    Any statistics available for those who have one vs the other by any chance?

    See the AnandTech article or the referenced MacRumors thread. The Samsung drive appears about 15-20% faster in some of the benchmarks.

    Not meant to boast but that article is written by me, thus the referral to the MR thread :)

    No, I meant the number of people who have one vs the the other, not the speed of the SSDs.

    Great article Hellhammer, I have the slower TS128. It bothered me when I first came across your post about the difference in speed, the day I got my machine. being I had the slower one. But in reality this machine seems super fast as is. No regrets. If OWC ever works out the sleeping problem and lower the cost of the drives by half. I would upgrade:D

    Thank you for keeping us well informed;)
