SSD choise to make

I finally decided to pull a trigger on an ssd and it came down to Samsung 830. Mostly because of its reliability and does have not that bad of performance. And just today I came across Mushkin Chronos deluxe 120GB at almost the same price as 830 (+£10) but before did not even looked at it because of the price. So does anyone can tell something about this drive? I know its fast how is mushkin as a brand?
I will be using it as a boot drive for windows and all the software with win7 x64 maybe a game... Almost no professional work on this system just some photoshop from time to time...
I have AMD Phenom II X6 1055T ; 4GB of ram ; Gygabite GA-890GPA-UD3H motherboard and amd HD6800 graphics.

I really would like the faster option but reliability is important to me to its life longevity too ;D
Which should I choose?

  1. You didn't mention which Mushkin drive you were thinking about.

    As a brand name Mushkin is pretty good, no problems I've heard about.
  2. Oh sorry I edited my original post. It`s Mushkin Chronos deluxe 120GB. They where running out of stock in front of my eyes and at £141 I got my self one. I hope I wont have to return it..
  3. That's a good drive. Very fast, you'll like it.

    Make sure to optimize your SSD after installing Windows.
