I've had my 840 EVOs for just over a week now and I'm very tempted to create a thread stating just how much I love Samsung Magician.
Yes, the slower drive always "wins".
Anyway, you're getting slower IOPS performance because of the SATA II ports. If you had SATA III ports and had these drives connected to those SATA III ports, then you'd most likely see superior benchmark results to what you're getting now.
I though sata II Would only affect transfer rate and not IOPS, but in any way, I got them all on sata III ports, I forgot to add my specs.

You said trim would be nicely used with magician software, I use it and know what function you refer to, but I've read many times that when you use raid 0 with these SSD you won't be able to use trim, wether it is from the OS itself or the magician software.
Is it really possible to use it in raid?
