If I may ask, what are your needs?

I plan to use my system for Flight Simulator, the newest version of Counter-Strike and maybe some newer games. Other than that, just for internet browsing, HD video watching, word processing, music playing, etc.

What crucial should I get? The M4 or M500?

I do a bit of gaming, my favorite games are on my ssd (battlefield, guild wars 2, etc) and my OS..I also do the usual internet browsing, video streaming (netflix), word processing, etc..are you someone who would be irritated if they didn't have the fastest thing? Is budget an issue? For me, budget was nudging me towards crucial and the speed differences are in my perspective not worth the extra cash unless your budget is bountiful.

I wouldn't be irritated. I just want something that I know will be fast. So I would say my budget will be midrange-lower splurge.

i would go with the M500 as being the latest gen from crucial and 20nm MLC NAND is making great size/perf/$$ ratio's.. yes i know MLC vs TLC so please dont comment on that. tongue.gif

I thought the M4 is faster, no?

Of the ones you listed I would get the OCZ before any of the others. I have had real good results with these and if I wanted a cheaper alternative to Samsung I would get this!! biggrin.gif

spec wise they are pretty much on par IIRC

I have a 512GB Samsung 840 Pro installed in my laptop. I really like it. I have had 0 problems with it. I use the latest firmware with no problems. It was a breeze to install. I have had no trouble with the Magician software either. I've had some Windows 7 issues, but they were of my own stupidity and not the SSD's fault.

I got mine back in Dec '12 when the reviews were scary describing many problems. I started to get an 830, but I went for it while trusting Samsung's good reputation and crossed fingers. wink.gif

This was my first SSD and I haven't ever used another. My benchmark test are excellent. Anyway, I recommend the 840 Pro.
