Increased Performance SSD Size a Factor

Does anyone have any first hand knowledge about the performance increase when jumping from a 128GB SSD drive up to a 256GB drive.

I see in the technical specs the write speed increases when jumping to the 256GB drive but is it worth the cost if you're not concerned about storage space.

Specifically for the Samsung 380 series the sequential write speed goes from 320MBps to 400MBps.  Is this even noticeable for the average user?

Has anyone compared the difference between the Crucial M4 128 to the M4 256GB or the Samsung 830 series 128 vs 256GB?

You will notice a slight increase in speed with the SSD.  Is it enough that you would want to spend money on it?  I would say no.  If you were to go to a bigger hard drive down the line, then I would say yes, but from 128 to 256, I don't think its worth it.

the only way to know is to measure both drives's speed imo
personally, i don't think its noticeable

Why the average grade?  Sorry if you wanted me to lie and say it would be spectacular....but it's reality.

Nothing personal but it's really not the in depth answer I was looking for.  There was no quantified comparison or even reference to personal expierences or past testing.  I can tell from the spec sheets online that there is a slight increase in write performance with a larger drive.  We're looking at purchasing a large volume of SSD drives so I was hoping for something a little more concrete with supporting evidence before purchasing 100+ drives.
