Since like the middle of 2012 I was thinking about finally replace my Velociraptor WD3000GLFS (The original Velociraptor) with a SSD and very likely the the samsung 830 250gb which had good performance and decent reliability. But as I knew that there was only a minor couple of months until the announcement of the replacement, the Samsung 840 and 840 Pro, I decided to wait to at least see what it was like in comparison to the older 830.
I was rather disappointed with the small increase in performance. 250gb 830 vs 840 Pro and despite some other small though probably good improvements the 840 and 840 Pro looks like nothing more than just a small step between the 830 and some real upgrade in performance.
The price of the 840 Pro 250gb has come down here in Sweden, almost to the same lowest price, which the 830 250gb has been available to for like the last 8 months according to price-comparing sites like Pricerunner etc.
Now when Samsung acquired Nvelo (link)which is a caching maker for SSD units. Is it as I believe, that there is a bigger, more significant step up in performance to expect from the successor of the sooner or later upcoming replacement of the 840 Pro 250 and 500gb rather than the imo disappointingly small improvement btw 830 and 840 Pro 250gb?
