    Has the price/Quality/Performance ratio on these Samsung drives reached a point where they are no longer the better value?

    I recently got to test the 500 gig Samsung Pro 840 with a LSI 9270-8i RAID card. In RAID0 with 8 drive I was able to saturate my HP Z800 PCIe 2.0 x8 bus at 2-3 gigabytes per second with IOMeter. The 250 and higher Pro drive has 512 meg of DRAM cache! These have great warranty and have been stress tested at 600TB without a single error. VERY GOOD stuff here.
