All seriousness aside (?), the 840 Pro is at the top of the heap performance-wise and is a good price. It lists at $150 but has been selling for $140 at Newegg and Amazon. The NewEgg sale knocks off another ten shekels.

It currently is the best performer out there according to review sites, and it had to beat out a lot of good drives to get there! I hope to see it come down to $125-130 regular price soon. Make sure you two let us know your first impressions, benchmark scores, and thoughts when you get them up and running.

It will be interesting to see how the Samsung SSD compares performance wise to my OCZ Vertex III SSD which has performed well for me so far.

It will be a couple of months before I actually install it in what will be my first build but a sale is a sale (and I'm a cheap, old b***h).
