Alright, Samsung has been working on a fix and it's due in just about 3 weeks.

Firmware Update to Fix the Samsung SSD 840 EVO Read Performance Bug Coming on October 15th
by Kristian Vättö on September 26, 2014 5:10 PM EST

A week ago Samsung acknowledged the existence of the read performance bug in the SSD 840 EVO and I just received a note that the fixed firmware is in validation process and is expected to be released to the public on October 15th. Unfortunately I don't have any further details about the bug or the fix at this point, or whether the update is coming to the 'vanilla' SSD 840 and OEM models, but I hope to get more details as the public release gets closer, so stay tuned.
