Samsung 830 vs. Crucial M4 (128GB)

Well, I'm deciding on which SSD to buy for my new computer and I'm not sure what I should get... I'm trying to get a 128GB SSD from either Samsung or Crucial, but just can't decide which one is better.

Also, when I search 128GB SSD from newegg for both brands, I get 3 different options, and can you please tell me which one is better and why? They all looks same but with price differences.

For Crucial M4 128GB:
1) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148448
2) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148525
3) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148442

For Samsung 830 Series 128GB:
1) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147163
2) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147134
3) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147137

Can you guys please help me decide which product to get? I care more for reliability than speed.

    both are very reliable SSD,i have personal experience with m4 128gb and it's a great performer.but samsung 830 is faster,i would suggest 830 series if you can afford otherwise m4 is good enough.
  2. ^ +1 You would be very happy with either 830 or M4, both great drives. The various packages just include extra junk, but the drives are the same -- unless you need a mounting plate get the cheapest option among the three choices for either.
  3. Both are excellent ssd's. I would say purchase the one with the lowest sale price.

    Here is a link to today's best ssd deals:

  4. Agreed with everyone here. Choose the one with the lowest price.

    They're the same unit with different accessories. Bare unit or with adapter, transfer kit, etc. Check the pics and item details.

    As for M4 / 830... can't go wrong with either :D
