New Samsung 840 Pro 512GB, Rapid Mode On, OS Optimized for High Performance
Laptop - Samsung NP520U4C-A01UB, Core I5 Gen 3 Processor (2.5 GHz), 8GB Ram, Windows 8.1 Pro Update1
See my post here, Power plan settings keeps on reverting back after restart, that shows the difference when the OS isn't optimized and how a simple setting in the Samsung Settings app can affect SSD performance.

Just got my first SSD. I've ran some Performance Benchmark tests and I'd like to know if that's what they should be or not.
CPU: Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4200U CPU @ 1.60GHz, 2301 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
HDD: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB SSD
Grafic : AMD Radeon R7 M265
Why is the Random Read/Write so "far" from the stated benchmark numbers (97000\66000) ?
Thanks Elohim , I don't think I'm going to enable it for the time being
I've played with turning Rapid Mode on and off and from a "feel" perspective, I'm not sure if I really notice a difference. The only difference I do "see" is with the benchmark numbers.
The following is also a good link, from AnandTech
