Hey guys i just ordered samsung ssd 840 pro 128gb from ebay this one specifically
http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Samsung-840-Pro-128GB-2-5-S...
and i noticed there is difference in writing speed between the one i ordered and the specs of 840 pro in official site so i wonder am i buying original one or fake or its just original one but older version , i dont care alot about the writing speed if its the only difference i ordered it for faster booting , and faster loading at games , and heard it really helps 2gb gpu's at watchdogs .
so shall i stop the order or not .

As per the offical data sheet, that is the correct spec for the 128 GB version; it's normal for the smallest size of an SSD model to be slightly slower in sequential performance (in this case 390 MB/s as opposed to 520 MB/s). In real world performance, the difference will be quite small for your planned use.

actually only the sequential writing is different , the sequential reading is the same so if it's the original one, there is totally no difference for the thing im going to using it for :D

To be slightly pedantic (as I often am ;) ), the sequential read for the 128 GB model should be 530 MB/s, as opposed to 540 MB/s of the larger drives; a trivial difference, obviously. The listing on Ebay has it as 540 MB/s, but that's likely just a typo.

But back on point, yes that SSD will serve you very well for what you want to do; you're going to love it :)
