I was thinking to have an ssd with my 500gb velociraptor hdd(it was on sale for 80!! :lol:  )

These were my two options for a ssd

samsung 830:

would there be an advantage to get the newer 840 model? It is 40 or so more dollars!

I'd get the 830 over the M4 just for the Samsung Magician software, although I find them to both be great drives. No advantage to 840 over 830 really except in benchmarks perhaps, also the 830 has been around and is a proven reliable drive.

Go with the 830, the Crucial M4 is a bit long in the tooth and cant compete with newer drives.
