Not in terms of pure performance. The pro is slightly better but most people agree it's not worth the price increase.

Yes.
The EVO is cheaper and doesn't perform as well.

In pure performance, the 840 Evo 1TB beats the 840 Pro 512GB.

You won't even notice the performance differences in any real-world application but you will notice if one is less reliable than the other. Get the Pro.
