I just bought an 830 in the last couple of weeks, so for some of us it's not really about performance in its entirety. The 830 is a very fast, and - most importantly - VERY reliable SSD. The speed differences in everyday tasks between an 830 and an 840/840 pro would be negligible, and since the 840/840 pro haven't had enough shelf life to determine reliability, a lot of people (me included) have bought the 830.

There any downside? You say works well versus works perfectly? Maybe I'm reading into this a tad too much, but just trying to gauge if I should wait or just buy that tape.
PS Where'd you buy it from? 3M shows different sizes, so I'm not sure which one you used...
