the main different would be you can use the ram cache with EVO.

840 Pro > 830 > 840 EVO > 840

For price get 840 EVO
For performance and longevity get 840 Pro

I just got the 840 EVO 120gb and used in my older alienware laptop with SATA 3GB/s, won't be used a ton so the TLC and lower performance fit for my usage of it.

can you use evo rapid ram cache with your sata 2 to get crazy benchmark score?

Haven't touched rapid yet on the EVO though it is usable through the magician software, I'll give it a look and edit here.

Edit: Here's the result using the built in benchmark, from the few articles I saw on rapid it's mainly wasted on my laptop with only 4gb of DDR2 667 and with the sata limitation in general

Top is normal mode, bottom is rapid

Nein! Tbh depending on what your after. The pro and evo are close enough to call even. The pro has very marginally faster reads and writes, but the evo has newer tech and when the cacheing is used properly, it leaves eeeeeverything in the dust. Of course then your taking a slightly bigger risk with data integrity. Oh and there's also the price thing.

IMO people would be very foolish and hard pressed to justify a pro purchase at this point.

I just prioritize the MLC over TLC, it should be more like ~ instead of > but reliability/longevity matters more to me with SSDs than speed does in normal usage.
