I'm glad it's worked out for you, i got a samsung 128 a few days ago and it's very fast, and comes with good software package too, i know the read speeds are not quite as competitive as some other drives[but still stupid fast lol], but samsung are using there own proprietary firmware and that's what got me, good one, i'm very happy for you, nothing worse than spending all that money, they are complicated devices and i'm sure all brands have a few failures etc. good result!!!
I reckon samsungs done a gr8 allround job with the 830.
