Just wondering on peoples opinions on the following:

Samsung 830 (256GB, £257)

Crucial M4 (256GB, £203)

Intel 520 series (240GB, £244)

Having a look, i'm kinda tempted by the intels 5 year warranty, tempted by the M4s price, and have seen the Samsung highly recommended. Which would you choose and why? (personal opinions wanted before i order later)

I choose Intel, but according to the latest THG SSD Review, Samsung would be it.

Only due to that Samsung used Toggle NAND, and Intel uses Sync ONFi NAND.

Im also having a bit of a hard time choosing between those: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|20-147-134^A0FU_1_20120418_3284953%23%2C20-148-448^20-148-448-TS%2C20-227-791^20-227-791-03%23%2C20-233-226^20-233-226-TS%2C20-167-093^20-167-093-TS

Maybe it will give you some more insight?

Thanks for the views, will probably be going with the samsung (having viewed other threads too).

Lazdaa, I wish! The numeric values of prices are pretty much the same in $ as to £, with exchange rates that means the £ price is FAR more expensive, though after the wait (and costs) on shipping, and taxes, it'd prob cost me more to buy from the US! Thanks though :)
