Interesting results so far.

The Samsung 840 was also what I had in mind for my next SSD upgrade.

Or the original article instead of lifehackers regurgitation:

Note that the Samsung 840 EVO (vs the 840 Pro which is the long running drive referenced above) may need firmware updated if you get one:

I have an 840 EVO which is noticeably faster after this update.

I ran that Samsung EVO optimizer and it definitely sped things up for me, too. The new version of Magician doesn't seem to report speeds correctly though, they're way too high.
