  1. I got a samsung 840 evo and the when i do a benchmark test it goes of the chart. I'd like to believe its just fast but it's too good to be true. I've tried a bunch of different benchmark programs but they all get this ridiculous fast readings. Do anyone else get these results? Do anyone know what the cause of this can be? My PC: asus Z87-pro i7 4770K @ 4.2Ghz G.skill 2133 CL9 8GB EVGA GTX 780 @ 1150Mhz CM m2 1kW PSU
  2. Hello everyone, I'm new to SSD's and recently purchased a Samsung 840 EVO 500GB SSD for my PS4. I have a couple questions regarding the drive's garbage collection and TRIM support: I bought the SSD after reading numerous speed comparison charts and the SSD is still a significant upgrade, even though the PS4 only has a SATA II port. The PS4, however, doesn't have any kind of TRIM support. I also read that the Samsung SSD's have their own method of garbage collection that does its job while idle. So my first question is, will the SSD be smart enough to organize itself while the PS4 is in, say, stand-by mode? Or even if it's shut down?? If the SSD's grabage collection without TRIM isn't enough, then I assume I'd have to pop it out periodically and connect it to a computer that does support TRIM to keep it organized. I have a 2012 Apple iMac and an HP DV7 Windows 7 laptop which I confirmed definitely does support TRIM (the SSD can also fit as the primary drive). So my second question is, what ways can I set up the SSD with the laptop (or the iMac if it's possible) to let the TRIM do its job for the SSD? I looked into a sata to usb connection and planned to do it externally, but then read that TRIM can't happen through a USB, even if it is a 3.0, so I don't really have an idea on how to do that now. I apologize in advance if this has already been covered or if the answer's too obvious for its own thread, but like I said, I'm new to these drives and how they work as opposed to HDD's. Thanks in advance for reading my post and maybe even coming up with a solution. -Anthony
