Did you test resiliency when using Rapid Mode? What happens when you save a document and power off the machine shortly after? Is the window for data loss increased? What is the impact on free memory for other applications? How stable is the driver that it uses, have there been stability issues in the past with it? Compatibility across Windows versions?
The other question I have is why the Vertex 3 240GB is faster to boot, yet slower than the Samsung drives in every other benchmark. Clearly Windows is doing something that the Vertex 3 is better at, yet it hasn't been captured by any of the synthetic benchmarks. I find myself wondering what exactly that is?
the Samsung SSD 840 and Samsung SSD 840 Pro ranges caused something of a stir
