Used - Very Good Condition. Seems like a good deal. I went ahead and bought one. Shows 10 left in stock.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B005T3GPXY/ref=dp_olp_used?ie=UTF8&condition=used&m=A2L77EE7U53NWQ.

***Edit 2/28/13***
PRICE DROP!!! NOW $138.30!

Seems like they have quite a few in stock as well, no longer states how many are available. Just says in stock. So I'm assuming its 10+.


***Another Price Drop***
$127.87 Now!!!

Sequential wise 830 have almost the same reads but slower in write, 4K wise 840 Pro much stronger in most benches otherwise they are the same, plus it consumes less power. Still for this price I'd rather get the 830 over the 840, Pro isn't in this price range.

My old 830


My new 840 Pro( cloned, so contents are the same)

Hmm...so what do we thing "very good condition" means in relation to SSD's? Was it actually used/installed or not?

Not sure what it means in relation to SSD's. I will receive mine on Friday so I will let you know.

This is take from Amazon's site:
Very Good - If an item has been tested and verified to be in perfect working order but it has cosmetic damage or blemishes, shows slight signs of use, has minor accessories missing, or the packaging has been replaced to better protect the item, we will assign the condition of "very good."

Have both 830 and 840 Pro and haven't noticed much of a difference in normal use

For $150-160 I'd get the 830 256GB over a $210-220 840 Pro. 840 Pro is better, but not noticeably so: definitely not 40% more.

This is used though, so no deal, not going to risk my data.

Pretty solid deal....

Almost ordered one, but my 120GB isn't even half full anymore, so it was just be giving into a want.

For those wondering about Amazon Warehouse, I have ordered several items from them and all have been great. I had on item that was listed as "Very good", you could tell it was installed at one point, but still had all the accessories, and overall condition was truly better than a typical "used" item. Two other orders were labeled as "Like New", and didn't appear to have even left the packaging, outer seal was broke, but all the inner seals on the bags were intact.
