Intel X25-M 160 GB vs SanDisk Extreme 120 GB vs Samsung 840?

Hello,

So I'm pretty new to this SSD phenomenon. Haven't followed the hardware trends for a few years and now that I'm about to shop for a new PC I'm confronted to something that is really unfamiliar to me. I've basically got no idea on how to compare SSDs, what specs should I consider, etc. So I'm turning to you my dear friends to help me solve this little dilemma.

Which one of the three linked SSDs has an overall better performance?

Thank you

  1. The Intel X25-M is a 1st generation SSD released in 2008.

    The SanDisk Extreme and Samsung 840 were released in 2012. Either one of these is a good choice. I would probably go for the Samsung 840.

    BestBuy.com has an Intel 520 Series 120GB drive for $100, or a 180GB for $130. Don't know if this is an option in your location. If it is these are fast, reliable drives, on sale for a good price.
