    I'd get the 830 over the M4 just for the Samsung Magician software, although I find them to both be great drives. No advantage to 840 over 830 really except in benchmarks perhaps, also the 830 has been around and is a proven reliable drive.
  2. I would go with 830, it is fast and reliable!
  3. Go with the 830, the Crucial M4 is a bit long in the tooth and cant compete with newer drives.
