    Just saw this on Amazon.com: SanDisk Extreme warehouse deals for under $135. Looks like there is one for $134.25 now and $131.37 shipping on Dec 4. Also Prime eligible. The new versions are $170 right now but were $160 last evening. Might make an interesting way to save a few bucks if you were going with these anyway. Basically two drives and 480GB for the price of a Samsung 840 Pro 256GB.

    samsung 830 256gb was $149 a few weeks back.

    The sandisk had bad firmware - no TRIM. Sandforce. Anyone would take the sammy 830 over busted sandforce junk.

    The 840/840 PRO have bad firmware as shipped - they will catastrophically fail if you do not upgrade them btw. In case you bought one and didn't know lol.
