Practically? Probably not in a way that's significant enough to justify the upgrade alone. Of course it's way faster in sequential read/write (which real workloads will almost never be) but normal PC use and even things like game loading aren't going to benefit that much in real world use.

I'm currently using an 840 Pro as my boot drive and have been for a very, very long time now and are actually about to upgrade to probably the 1TB version of this. Is it going to be faster for big transfers? Absolutely. Will running Windows off it be that much better? Probably not and any perceived difference would probably fade quickly. Currently have the previous gen 1TB of this drive (same hardware they just updated the firmware for slightly better performance) and a 1TB 860 Evo for local storage and games and between the three I don't see any practical day to day difference in use without being aware of what drive I'm accessing.

I'm mainly running into capacity issues with stuff that has to go on my boot drive now and don't see the point to replacing it with a SATA drive, seems like a waste of money to me. This 500GB would probably be sufficient but I don't want to replace it again for a while and at least in the previous model the 500GB was slightly lower in performance (but again not enough to be the reason not to buy it). So TLDR if the 840 Pro is meeting your needs currently I wouldn't upgrade just to upgrade at this point.

I can look into videos and charts but real world, would there be any difference from my Windows being on my 840 Pro versus this?

Amazon shipping speed sucks nowadays.
