The 840 uses TLC flash which is cheaper, slower and less stable than the MLC flash that the 830 uses. And for the pure overall fastest drive around you get one of these just released Vector SSD drives. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6820227915
still not at the 50 cents a gig marker, its getting there though.
Quote from ls1dreams :
Be careful with the 840's. As someone mentioned in a previous post, anandtech saw both of his 2 sample drives completely die within a month of testing.
Maybe just bad luck, but seems risky to me.
and if thats the case triple ouch
