Pros do have a longer warranty, but Samsung has a great track record. They also, being MLC drives, can take three times the write cycles of the TLC 840s and EVOs - 3000 as opposed to 1000. Still, the 250GB EVOs and 840s are rated for a quarter petabyte of writes (1000 P/E cycles * 250GB = 250TB total writes) and can take 30GB/day of writes for the next 20 years (365.25 * 20 * 30 = 183TB). I don't think SATA will be around that long and we'll have migrated to PCIe based ReRAM. Don't worry about durability is what I'm trying to say.

That WD drive is just getting started. I have 2 250gb drives that have been doing since 2008, and a few that are even older and they show no signs of wear.

I would just add to what you have. Get a 1tb plus a decent 128gb ssd and you will be golden.

Make sure to follow seans guide to make the most of your space and ssd.

Depends on the price. You can only get a 128 gb 840 pro for your price range. So if you really need at least 256gb you may need to put your price range up for the better quality ones.
