The 850 Pro is in all likelihood, just fine.
Samsung's SSDs have generally been very conservative. The 850 Pro is just an MDX with 3D NAND rather than planar NAND. To be honest, the only reason why I'd get the 840 Pro is because it is cheaper.
Of course, that begs the question, why not just get the MX100? It been out for a few months and Micron's SSD has been pretty reliable. They are generally very conservative too and don't really push performance too much.

Probably due to the performance benchmarks. The 840 Pro is faster at most things, although the Neutron GTX does have performance consistency and is very powerful at sequential. The weak points are weaker read, somewhat weaker burst write, and the newer SSDs match the performance consistency. As a laptop SSD, it also has the drawback of a few more watts of power consumption. Finally, consumers generally don't have applications that take advantage of the write-heavy performance of the Neutron GTX. Otherwise, it's a great drive.
I will say that the LSI controller is pretty good though and Corsair customer support is good. I'd like to see an updated model come out.Edited by CrazyElf - 10/18/14 at 9:18am
