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.


AMD Phenom II X4 965 C3
Noctua NH-D14
Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 R
8 GB Mushkin Blackline DDR3-1600
Gigabyte GV-R685OC-1GB

240 GB Crucial M500 SSD

1 TB Western Digital Blue, 640 GB Black

Corsair CMPSU-750HX PSU
Lian Li Case
Asus 22" Widescreen

Tempting though isn't it? I've loved my ADATA flash drives, they've been good to me.

Is there really a difference in the TLC vs. MLC for SSD type? That debate always seems to pop up when the 840 and 840 Pro get mentioned.

this included video pretty much answers the question, ...even if the guy is doing it for sales or whatever, he is pretty knowledgeable about his product...
