Hi everyone. I'm trying to decide which of these two drives is better, and based on the stats alone, I think the Kingston drive would be the winner. However, I know these numbers may not necessarily mean a whole lot when it comes to actual performance.
Can anyone give me any insight as to which drive would be a better purchase and why? Does anyone have any experience using either of them?
Here are the specs:
SanDisk Extreme (SDSSDX-240G):
Sustained R/W - 550MB/520MB
Random R/W - 39K IOPS/83K IOPS
Kingston HyperX 3k (SH103S3/240G):
Sustained R/W - 555MB/510MB
Random R/W - 86K IOPS/60K IOPS
I'm actually already using the San Disk Extreme and haven't been having any problems. Everything is running well, but I could exchange it for a Kingston if I wanted to. What I really want to know is, would there be any noticeable performance difference between the two? It looks like the Random R/W is going to be faster on the Kingston, but I'm not sure what kind of a performance increase that'll be in reality.
