Which SSD to buy

I'm trying to figure out which of these SSDs are better. From what I can tell the Seagate looks like the best bang for the price. I'm not sure if it is better to have higher Sustained Sequential Read/Write or 4KB Random Read/Write. I'm open to SSDs outside of these three but I would like to stay around the same size.

    I'm planning to get this on Monday if Newegg, Amazon, etc. don't lower their prices. I'll take the risk of it being sold out too... not to comfortable with eBay sellers, regardless of their reviews though
