I have both a Samsung 830 and Crucial M4. They perform similarly, so just chose one.

Samsung 830. The Crucial M4 is fine too, but I would take the Samsung over it any day.

Samsung lifespan is ridiculous.

Just keep in mind, that's a 256GB SSD. Halve that value for 128GB. Normalized based on P/E writes, the best one of the bunch so far is the Kingston SSDNow V+ 40GB (rebadged Intel X25-V G2 40GB) 34nm (currently around 30,000 P/E cycles).

Even though I own the M4, Samsung is a bit better.

I would go with Samsung.

I know P/E cycles change with the size, but even at half, the MWI is still ~400TB and there's yet to be an end to the actual lifespan of the drive. The Kingston is definitely good, and may trump it because of its tiny size and high write capacity, but the Samsung is definitely one of the best with 'balance' as it were. 40Gb is sort of "lol", and a decent OP on the Samsung would probably extend it further.

You cannot go wrong with Samsung. The other two aren't bad either, but the price difference justifies Samsung.

All facts prove otherwise. Corsair SSDs are overpriced.
Performance Pro is one of the fastest SSDs, but it costs too much.
Force series all use sandforce controllers known being unreliable and Force 3 uses asynchronous nand at terribly high price point.

It is very hard to recommend Corsair SSD unless one is a fanboy.
