Funny thing is I couldn't get anyone at Samsung to be able to find the actual 830 Series. They had 2 models with the number 830 in it. One was Enterprise one was Consumer. Never got a price on the Enterprise and it doesn't surprise me that they have a new line out already. That previous line must had been a lemon.

The 840 will NOT be faster than SandForce drives with they both have data on them.

So if this is coming with AES 256 full HD encryption do you even need a software one now? And what will the added security feature even do?

Depends on your scenario, if this is personal you can do what you want. If this is for Government or Government compliance there may be stipulations on the encryption.

The US Military would not want anyone using Encryption from a vendor outside of the US.

Am I the only one who noticed the almost tripled price from the 250GB-ish capacity to 500?

Good thing I almost stole my Vertex 4 512GB for $450.

When SSD prices get into the range & size of current HDDs, then I'll get one or more.

Thankfully, SSD prices have fallen considerably in the past year, part of which is the result of an oversupply of NAND flash memory chips. That said, I would liked to have seen Samsung price its 840 Pro Series a little closer to (or even below) a dollar per gigabyte, though the 256GB model for $270 seems like a solid buy (especially if street pricing ends up being lower).
