Not sure if it is necessary to but this over 840 for additional 50-60 dollars...... since the improvement of the speed is not noticeable.
Looks like sequential write is almost twice as fast. That should be noticeable on large files.
Also the reliability is much better. 840 uses TLC NAND. Also the pro has a 5 year warranty.
AND nobody is selling the 840 for $160 right now, let alone $150, so I don't understand your mention of 50-60 dollars.
