I'm tuning up my current rig to extend its useful life and an SSD is on the list. I've noticed that several vendors have been dropping the price on the 840 Pro SSD models over the past couple of days. Best Buy did it a few days ago, Adorama did it through their ebay store within the past week and today Newegg listed them at $171 for the 256 GB model. Is there a new model coming to cause all of these retailers to dump these great SSDs?
I had a 256 GB 840 Pro, a WD Blue 1 TB hard drive and 8 GB of Mushkin Blackline in my cart at Newegg, but the SSD sold out before I finished shopping. I'd like to get an order done so I can get my machine running fast again.
