StorageMark 2010 HTPC and Productivity measures both place the Intel 520 240 GB above the Samsung.
However, the Samsung wins in the Gaming measure. But, the difference between the Samsung and the Intel is very small in that measure. The difference is higher in the other two.
The OCZ Vector 256 beats it in CrystalDiskMark 4k Write.
It won read IOPS in Anvil (4k QD=32). The Intel won in write IOPS.
Basically, if you have a write-heavy workload and don't handle incompressible files a huge amount, then the Intel 520 series is your drive. If you have a write-heavy workload where incompressible data is the bulk of it, then the OCZ Vector could be the choice to make. If you have a read-heavy workload then the Samsung is a good choice.
Got me a new one for $389 bid on fleabay just now. :-)
