What is the point of arguing over an 830 versus 840 with "performance?" The 840 is atleast 100MB/s or more on some benches. Maybe in real world performances, it doesn't matter too much--but that can be said for almost any decent SSDs. Almost all Sandforce 2281 performs the same, but yet some cost much more. The same can be said about these MDX, or Marvell or Sandforce controllers that are about the same classes. Ppl will barely notice much difference, other than from a couple to a few seconds differences.
This is a great price, once the code expire--it will go back up since the 840 series is relativity new. If you don't like the 840, it still doesn't make this not a slick deal. It is still one of the best price NOW. Go troll something else, it is like ppl are trying to compare one V8 car to another V8 car.

I very well know that it is considered the best on the market but prices are still steep IMO relative to similarly performing alternatives. Benchmark tests put it at the top, but not by much and most sites that run these tests repeatedly state that differences are not noticeable in real world applications between the drives.
If availability of cheaper alternatives is a problem, then this becomes a more favorable deal.

On late 2012, a $130 256G SSD could appear on front page, now, $160 can.
I have been waiting too long since last year. My new Lenovo T430s will come two weeks later. So I will pull the trigger.

Not if you can believe Crucial (I think it's them).
According to CES reports, they're releasing a 1TB SSD for $600 list price in the next 1-2 months... Of course 500GB and down will be less as well.
Don't spend a lot of money on these small drives now if you can wait...

I'll buy it on ebay then Amazon will sell it for $199.99. Just you watch. **scared**

|vettefan8||If I remember correctly, the 840 Pros consume a ton less power than the 830s which won't matter for most desktop users but it should make a nice difference on battery life for an ultrabook.|

2. See attached pictures for spec comparisons. There are some fairly sizable ones.
Samsung is rightly the king of SSDs at the moment because they control every part of making their SSDs, from fab to design all of the parts are made by Samsung. Which means they have a big advantage because they don't have to work with anyone else's technology. The 840 Pro is pretty much universally regarded as the best SSD one the market today.
This is a great price, if I didn't already own one (paid $240 a couple of months ago) I would buy it.

Some cards require it to be the same store, while others I believe allow you to price match other stores. Might be a little trouble for only $10-15 but might be worth trying out if your card does it.

|Ignatius||Ugh, I bought these on Friday last week and they've already been shipped out... doubt Newegg CS would reimburse. :/|

Don't know exactly who owns who - but DailySteals & IceMonkey (luv the name) are One.
I've bought from DS plenty times, Sloooow shipping, but Friday's are FS, plus no tax.
IMonk always FS, no tax, even better deals...
Is good to spread the l-o-v-e on sites like these...
*I'm currently waiting for refund from DS on a defective plantronics BT set.

If warranty and encryption are necessity, then perhaps this is a good deal. Otherwise, I still don't see it.
