Yep, I just bought one of the last 256GB 830 drives I could find over the weekend to replace me second OCZ Synapse that died (don't ever buy one of those by the way). From what I've read, the 840 is actually slower and it's long-term reliability is questionable. A free Far Cry 3 would have been nice but I'll take the superior product.
