Evo VS Pro

I was planning on purchasing a 840 Pro 500 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147194)
but have recently come across the Samsung Evo (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147249).
On paper they appear to be the same except for cost, but with such a large difference in price, ($100) I'm left wondering if there is some well hidden fine print intended to be discovered only after purchase and installation. Is there?

More about evo pro
  1. Pro runs faster, and costs more. Depends on how much you want to pay.
  2. The Evo is great for home usage or better single user environment. The Pro is meant for heavy workstation or server usage.
    This ends in different price points.

    the EVO uses TLC Nand, but in stress tests its just as reliable as MLC that the PRO uses, and also, The EVO's Nand uses a new Turbo write algorithm that makes it perform as an SLC when the algorithm is active. The EVO also has the RAPID mode option which uses RAM to double the read and write speed, we've gotten numbers like 1GB/s Read and 800-900MB/s Write, 126,717 IOPS Random Read and 117,562 IOPS Random Write. At support we advise that the EVO is for consumer end-users, while the 840 Pro is for enterprise or small businesses because of the workload difference.
