Thanks for reminding me to check in the 840 pro reviews :). We have a new leader of the pack, eh? I really liked the transfer rate vs file size graph that anandtech offered. The Samsungs reach serious fast starting at 8K when the others are just getting warmed up. That would help to explain why the Sammy 830 does so well in real world speed. In the normal environment of mixed file size reads involved in program loading and startup and elsewhere, Samsung really got it right with the 830 and 840. If the 840 release continues to drive down the 830 prices, lots more folks gonna be able to grab one of the best, now.
