I wouldn't mind having this drive.
Looking daily for a good deal on this drive to throw into my laptop.
Yeah, I've been looking into the 840 and the 840 pro for a few months now. They've had some amazing deals on the 256GB and the 512GB's lately. Unfortunately I caught wind my start up isn't doing a great job at starting up and I might be the first to get axed (Eek!). Hopefully that won't happen and I can pick one up sooner or later, either way I'll survive just fine on a HDD.
If you want to get the best consistent performance from SSDs like the SS 840 Series and the OCZ Vector the drive should have a partition created that's about 20~25% of the drives capacity for over provisioning.
