So, i am buying an SSD for my new pc. This is the first time i am buying an SSD. I have narrowed down my choices to these-

http://www.flipkart.com/samsung-840-series-120-gb-ssd-i...
http://www.flipkart.com/corsair-force-series-gs-128-gb-...
http://www.flipkart.com/kingston-sv300s37a-120g-interna...
So, basically i am looking for an SSD under Rs 8000. Which is the best of the above and are there any better ones? I am leaning towards the Samsung Series 840 120 gb but the reviews at the site say that it doesnt include some cable. So, what is that cable and can i get it from elsewhere? Please guys, help me.

Lack of a cable is trivial. monoprice.com, for a selection of SATA data cables starting at $0.50US, in the color of your choice.

Go for a Samsung 840 Evo if you can spend the extra money, the write speeds are much improved over the regular 840. Otherwise from this list I'd personally pick the Sandisk. The write speeds on the regular 840 are slow. Maybe even look at picking up a Crucial M4 if you can find one cheap, Crucial updates their software more frequently than anyone else.

Sorry for late answer, was having trouble logging in. Well, the 840 Pro is out of the budget, 120 gb Evo not available and no crucial SSD available as well. I need the SSD to work for atleast 5 years. So, please suggest me a good one. Still leaning towards the Samsung Series 840 120 GB.
