I'm looking for a cheap but good 240GB or 256GB SSD. I can't decide which one to get. Which one is the most fastest and most reliable? Is it worth it to sacrifice the reliability and go for the speed? Or vice versa

They're all pretty close in terms of price range... So I don't know which one to buy. uhh.. Help?


Here are the links to the prices..


Kingston Hyper X 3k 240GB:

The Samsung would be better than the older Crucial by a small amount with the Kingston pulling up the rear by another small amount. The Samung and Crucial have amazing reputations for reliability with the Samsung faster but side by side you would not notice it.

My first choice then would be the Samsung but if the Crucial was a lot cheaper I would probably get it. With the great reputations of those drives I would be hard to sell on any other brands without some amazingly cheap deals.
