Bet it's one of the best SSDs around and is my own personal choice.

Unless you're doing some workstation tasks that require such throughput, the only reason to choose this over, say, an MX100 is the 5 year warranty. For gamers, loading times on this compared to MOST other SATA 3 SSDs will be not noticeably different.

Edit: Thanks Gavin, I thought this was the 850 Pro! Still difficult to justify the outlay for the 840 series imho.

840 Pro is 5 year warranty. The new 850 Pro is 10 years.

This is one of th e best ssds at the moment. It uses higher quality ram than the EVO. But it's better because of warranty / reliability not speed. I would choose an ssd with less speed and more reliability any day it's hard to tell the difference between 500 and 550mb/s but when the disc fails it's very obvious.

the 850 pro is out soon and the 256gb version has better write/read by about 10/20mbs over the 840 pro 256gb.
amazon.com has the 256gb version at $230 and Samsung has reduced the rrp to $200 so itll be ~£145 im guessing.

I own a 120GB one and I used PCs with M4 and M500 and some OCZ drives and I would say especially with this drive you get better package. For this price you get seriously fast drive and kind of peace of mind with a good warranty... I had one of my main 500GB drive die on me full of stuff and it had only 12 months of warranty. you really don't want that. And speed wise I have to say I will never go back to HDDs

Bloody good price for what you get.. Warranty and everything but then again depends what your using it for.
