I was originally in the market for an 830 a few months ago, but was never able to nab one quick enough. I jumped on this 840 Pro right after Xmas when it was $224+free shipping, so this is a new best as far as pricing for the 840 Pro.
Still annoys me that people chime in with "OMG why is dis so 'spensive?!?!" and "Wasn't this $160?!"... SAMSUNG. 840. PRO. DO YOUR RESEARCH. I feel like we're addressing the same idiots over and over again.
It's quite likely that you are. If people don't have the reading comprehension to know the difference between 830, 840, and 840 Pro by now then they are quite likely just posting nonsense in the thread then posting the same nonsense in the next thread without ever even reading responses.
