I have a 256gb Samsung 840 Evo in my laptop and with the new software it clocks at 800 to 1100 mbps.....
This is still good news as the marketplace continues to push prices down at a rapid rate.

Now that most SATA based SSDs have hit the wall... I think it's about time we start focusing on IOPS more than transfer rates. While I think transfer rates are important, I feel like it's an abused value.

It's wrong too. Cheaper SSD's start losing that advertised speed almost immediately out of the box, though it tickles me to see a Crucial, rocking 'supposedly' great speeds with an efficient controller and low price.

You could be right, I don't know. Mine works fine, maybe not exactly as when I bought it, weeks ago. This one: ( http://www.vayagangas.com/almacenamiento-crucial-mx100-704542-p.htm ). Should I be expecting problems with it?

Tom's Hardware has some good articles on that as well, as far as speeds IOPS vs MBPS etc.
