Yup, you would only notice the difference on benchmarks or if you are transferring VERY LARGE files. The good thing about the M4's is that they are tried, true and tested.

Considering that the Samsung 830 outperforms the crucial m4 the 840 pro will beat it by a good amount.

That being said I feel the premium for the 840 pro is not quite worth it and would rather just go the 830 route atm.

I wouldnt touch an 840, for at least a couple more months. There is some reports out there about them dying very early on. Anandtech had two samples die on him, and there is a thread on TPU (I think?) about another guy thats on his 4th, with three dying.

With SSD's I find its always best to wait a quarter or two past release to see what bugs may crop up in mass markets; ala SF 2 series BSOD bug. Thats jmo tho, see signature at bottom for what my opinion is worth ;)

If only the M4's were self-encrypting ...

That was the last week in Spetember so I'm not sure what ever came of that.
-for the record
- it seems all 6 [2@ Aand, 4 @ hard ] dead 840pro's had non retail firmware.

-have a retail on on my desk to replace my 2x 120gb g2's in raid0.
-any other single drive seemed equal to what I had /have so with the 840pro it should be nice ,
AS-SSD bench from 820pts raid0 to 1150pts with no raid with the pro.
-been running raid 0 for the OS from 2006 so it's time to move on.

You might want to also look at the new OCZ Vector SSD which compete's very good vs the mentioned ssd's in this thread. AKG has a review on the site for it now. :)
