The OP has a 512GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD installed now. See this post where he gave more detail on what he's using:

Thanks for bringing that to my attention, I did not read every post.

IMO, that's the *very best* SSD (consumer level anyway) you're going to find at a reasonable price (and it's more expensive than most consumer models), since their older Samsung 830 series drives have amazing reliability compared to virtually any other SSD model based on endurance testing I've looked at, and the newer 840 Pro is using the same flash memory type (only the newer model is much faster now)

I would agree, the Pro model is faster than the others.

That's why it's either at the top of most SSD benchmarks for performance (or very close to the top) in the review of the standard 840 (versus 840 Pro) model you linked to in your post.  Note where a Samsung 840 Pro was already much faster than the standard 840 in the review you linked to.

I was trying to explain why a youtube vid of a laptop with an old 830 samsung drive booted faster than anything I have seen before and faster than his new drive, and was not able to do it, and since all the other videos were more in line I concluded the person is doing something other than installing fresh something either with the vid or turning off stuff. But either way it was not something I could replicate.
