Hot or Not? New Samsung and Solidata SSDs

Hey Barman.

I have test results, from another comparison test: Samsung PM800 Test Results; these ones are hard to compare to the results you have posted in the Toms Hardware article. I have the PM800 from Samsung in my XPS M1530, and has my SSD already been blown out of the water. Am I the War Admiral to Seabiscuit, chna chna?
