John, if you consider a Samsung, note there is an 840 and a 840 Pro version, the Pro is a better, faster one and a bit more $$$.
Glad you pointed that out. I read the post earlier and was going to respond and got side-tracked and forgot.
The new Samsung line of SSD's come in two flavors.......the 840 and 840 Pro. They use different types of memory inside which affects performance and life cycle. The 840 Pro looks like it is going to be one of the fastest non-SLC SSD's out there, and is priced a little higher. The regular 840 will perform about the same as the 830 but with a little faster 4K Read/Write speeds.
If you don't need the fastest thing on the block, grab an 830 before it's too late. If you want one of the fastest SSD's on the market, get the 840 Pro. I haven't made up my mind where the 840 fits in, especially considering the 830 is still available. I guess if they were priced similarly, you could get an 840, but they haven't been out long enough for me to make that recommendation.
