Anyone know if this the lowest price we've seen? I thought Amazon had it for $69.99 few months ago?

Yesterday I just drove 90 miles each way to use my MicroCenter GC to buy the 830 model; they wouldn't ship. Paid about $130. Anyone know if the 840 is that much better than the 830? Overall,I only burned $20 in gas and won $85 in poker (Hawaiian Gardens) during the trip.

The 840 is SLOWER than the 830.
The 840 PRO is FASTER than the 830.

Basically: 840 PRO >> 830 >>>>>>> 840

We deploy a lot of SSDs for servers and cloud hosting, and the 830 is a fantastic drive, and the 840 pro is even better. The 840, however, uses TLC NAND, and because of that is far far slower. We will be completely skipping the 840 for our customers and only going 830 and 840 PRO.

Your summary is a bit disingenuous. The 840 is slower sustained read/write (e.g. when you boot/shutdown) but random read/write of 4k blocks it is superior (your typical work with a computer is much more like this.)

Let's be honest, most people aren't working with gigs of data at once.

Aren't most people actually boot/shutdown every time? I guess servers boot/shutdown much less.

Sheez. Hibernate FTW. Unless you lump that together with boot/shutdown.
