For boot, the SSD with the highest IOPS will give you the best boot time. Check the product pages for all of them and choose accordingly. Make sure you check the capacity you actually intend to buy, as IOPS can vary based on the number of NAND channels connected to the controller.

Eh... any current generation SSD offers enough sequential and random performance so that boot times are virtually the same. Don't forget boot times are not just disk access.

Just get whatever current-generation SSD that meets your needs and is on sale.

From "loading operating system" it takes ~9 seconds to desktop with my HyperX. I don't know at what point the ssd comes in to play when booting up.

You're right. I was just trying to provide a technically accurate answer, as the OP was particularly interested in an specific metric that asked for more than "eh, they're mostly the same."

the HDD you use to install the OS only really comes into play just before the windows icon flashes up. before then its all motherboard/cpu loading
