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=N82E168...
2) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
3) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

For Samsung 830 Series 128GB:
1) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
2) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
3) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

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

Best solution

^ +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.

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
