I've heard many good things about the Crucial M4, it's reliable and solid. Plus it's the cheapest of the bunch (price wise).

I would go with M4.

The Crucial M4 is a popular ssd and it is relatively trouble free. However I should point out your motherboard does not support SATA 3 6Gb/s ssd's. Your motherboard only supports SATA 2 3Gb/s ssd's.

You could install a SATA 3 6Gb/s ssd in your system and it will work because SATA 3 is backwards compatible with SATA 2. However, the ssd will experience a performance hit. A SATA 3 ssd will be restricted to SATA 2 performance levels. Typical users usually won't notice the difference.

If you decide to purchase a SATA 2 ssd, the Samsung 470 is an excellent choice. The 470's have an established track record and are problem free.

I would say the M4. It gives you the best bang for the buck. at 76.99 versus 100 and 114 of the other SSD's.

If money is no issue, the ADATA.

If I could only choose from the three you posted, then I would say the Crucial M4.
