Not only is the 830 more reliable, it's actually faster than the standard 840. The 840-pro is a different animal, but the cheapest I've seen that is $230. Not worth the extra 60 IMO.
And I'm very glad that the OP posted this as I got one. I also got the 100 Coby 32" not too long ago which sold out like gang busters.... Just because something is certain to sell out quickly doesn't mean they shouldn't post it in my opinion.
Thanks for the post OP. Didn't get one but I am always appreciative of these SSD posts as I get so many of them. I am so glad now that I jumped on 2 830s through Amazon for $155 on early November. I have yet to see a better SSD deal since then for P/P ratio and quality of SSD.
They sent me a tracking number and it appears the order went through as the item is at the UPS facility.

Problem is it says that delivery is not until Monday the 21st, and I live in Ohio. Seems like a long time (I was hoping to get it before the weekend)... but as long as it gets here I suppose.
