[QUOTE=alan1476;2712638]Its totally awesome on the 840 Pro and the 840 1TB EVO, love the Magician Software.;)[/QUOTE]
It’s a shame there’s no 840 Pro 1TB (yet), but I guess we’ll soon see 840 Pro’s true successor. Has the introduction of 840 EVO cannibalized 840 Pro? At least, many of the potential 840 Pro purchasers are now ordering 840 EVO instead.
Meanwhile, I’ll wait for the arrival of cheap NVMe SSDs. Hopefully, NVMe PCIe SSDs need not cost more than conventional AHCI SATA SSDs. Apple charges US$500 for an ungrade from 500GB internal PCIe SSD to 1TB for some of its MacBook Pro with Retina Display models. The cost from 256GB to 1TB is $800. Compare that with the case of conventional (non-Retina) MacBook Pro. The stock drive is a 5,400-RPM 500GB SATA HDD. Upgrade cost to SSD is $200 for 128GB SSD, $400 for 256GB SSD, and $700 for 512GB SSD. That means $1,899 for non-Retina MacBook Pro with 512GB non-PCIe SSD vs. $2,299 for Retina MacBook Pro (13-inch) with 1TB PCIe SSD. In case anyone is wondering, the 2.6GHz Haswell-based Retina MBP includes Intel’s Iris graphics and 8GB RAM while non-Retina MBP has Intel HD Graphics 4000 and 4GB RAM. From that, I estimate the present cost of getting a 1TB PCIe SSD is around US$300 - chips for about $150 to $200 and the rest for about $5 to $20 plus cost of development, profits, shipping and inventory, etc. It’s not strange for Apple to charge $1,000 for a $300 product and it’s very cheap considering it’s Apple, it’s upgrade, and it’s one of the earliest PCIe implementation in consumer products.
