Questions about which SSD to buy for new build

I have a chance to buy a Samsung SSD which is 120GB 6gbp read at 500 and writes at 130 for about 95 dollars.
Is this a good buy?

Or

Buy a Intel SSD 120 GB, 6gbp, reads at 500 and writes at 400 for about 120 dollars.

I would save about 30 bucks buying the first choice.

Which is better buy? Should I order something different from the states? I am living in Japan(American).

    So the Samsung I mention above is the Pro?
  4. No, it's the standard but still a decent drive.I own both.
  5. In this instance, Intel would be the better choice because of the read/write times.
  6. I second Samsung. I have 2 of their SSDs and they are awesome. Go finda 830 since it's not that far behind the 840 Pro and you save around $80 for a 256GB model.

    So even though the Samsung is only 130 with its write time it is still a good drive?
  8. The Samsung 840 Pro is the best performing SSD I own.I have owned Intel,Kingston Hyper X,and a Plextor which I don't count because it was DOA.
