Default Samsung SSD 840 250GB review: affordable and fast?

It is difficult to position the new 840 series. It's not an entry-level product in terms of price, if you're looking for something affordable you're still better off with the Samsung 830. The 840 also isn't a high-end SSD, models such the Plextor M5 Pro, Corsair Neutron GTX and Samsung 840 Pro are much faster and don't have the potential disadvantage of the TLC chips during intensive use. It's not mid-range either, SSDs like the Corsair Neutron 240 GB or the OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB are both faster and cheaper. In other words, the 840 series will become interesting only when the price goes down quite a bit, lower than the current level of the 830.
