I guess I shouldn't have to worry if the SAMSUNG 830 is better overall than the Kingston HyperX 3K? I just keep hearing more things about the SAMSUNG 830 or at least being equal to the Crucial ssd.

The HyperX 3K does have a shorter program-erase cycle than the SAMSUNG 830, but that doesn't seem like it would matter very much.

Hmm yeah the SAMSUNG 830 has been around a little while longer over the HyperX 3K. Probably the reason why its talked about more often. Well both are good drives, thanks Area51!

The folllowing all made Tier 1 in THG's SSD round up (240/256GB)

Mushkin Chronos Deluxe,
Patriot Wildfire
OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS
Kingston HyperX 3K
OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G
Corsair Force GS

Given the $180 price and premium toshiba toggle mode flash for extended life, I'm partial to the Mushkin
