I might be wrong here, but isn't the key benefit of SSDs that they have

This would have been true some years ago:

About write speed, the very best HDD gave 164.06MB/s on average while

Ah, my knowledge was out of date. I'll try and squirrel away that
But you comment still holds true: one should not expect a huge increase
of performance here as far as hibernation is concerned.
For a fast hibernate, sequential write speed is the key benchmark. The
Samsung 830 is supposedly very fast at this. However, the original
poster complained that hibernation is actually slower. This is the issue
that should be discussed.
So why would switching to an SSD slow hibernation times? Frankly I can't
think of any reasons (comparing apples to apples) why a faster drive
should lead to slower performance. Possibly it's an interface issue -
the SSD's controller is getting swamped - while the HDD the poster had
been using was able to handle a faster continuous write.
However, I can't find any evidence for this in the TomsHardware benchmarks.
