TITLE: MacBook Air (mid-2012) MBA Review Part 2 - Samsung and Toshiba
(SandForce) SSDs Go Head To Head

INFO: Following up on our first MacBook Air review a few days back,
we couldn't resist getting a second MBA in our hands to pair off both the
Samsung and Toshiba SSDs in a head to head battle of speed and performance.
The Toshiba SSD is LSI SandForce controlled and should excel in typical user
performance , whereas, we would expect to see the Samsung pulling ahead with
respect to it's transfer of incompressible data such as movies, music and

Early indications at Anandtech, however, seem to have shown listed
specifications below norm for the typical 'LSI SandForce Driven' solid state
drive. Transfer speeds of 490MB/s and 340MB/s seemed to be lower than
anything we had seen with the LSI SandForce SF-2281 6Gbps processor yet. As
I had stated in our first report though, I am new to the world of Mac/OS X
and storage testing just isn't the same in the Mac realm so nothing would
surprise me.
