Shoot, you should get the 840 Pro too. When they first came out I bought 2 of them, at different times. As I recall, I paid around $220-$230 each for them. Those are great prices.

I bought an 850 Pro 256 GB last week for $170 and it just dropped also.

Does it really seem any faster than the 840 Pro?

Don't know as its my first one and have not installed it yet. It's newer technology and updated controller so it may be a little faster in benchmarks but I am sure you can't notice the difference. Samsung thinks the technology is better with a 10 year warranty.

That's what I think. I don't think it can be much faster. The sata III bus is saturated right now. In practical terms, it can't go any faster. That's why everyone is looking to the pcie express and m.2 standard, they run off of pcie lanes, which are much faster and a direct shot to the CPU. But, I'm pretty sure sata III can't get any faster than it has been for a while, but the 10 year warranty only means Samsung believes in their quality, which is good enough for me.

Samsung is innovating with a new NAND tecnology: chip stacking. The cells are literally stacked on top of each other for 2 or 4 layers, with circuit connectivity on the X, Y, and Z axis. They call this 3D or V-chip.

They took this route because the "shrinking the die" improvements have pretty much hit a dead end. Manufacturers can't squeeze much more performance out of the "10nm class" chips (19nm actually) without resorting to firmware tricks and magic.

The 850 Pro uses the much older 40nm chip technology, which while slower, is much more reliable and straight-forward in functioning. The speed gain claimed is supposed to come from the 3D design.
We will see once folks start posting results.
