  1. They are not far off from each other, both are great drives, I feel that you get a bit more with the Samsung though. I personally own a Samsung 840 Pro 128gb and am very pleased with it, and would recomend a Samsung SSD.

    Here is the comparison...

  2. Samsung 840 Series
  3. I agree, as a suggestion if your budget allows it I would go up to the Samsung 840 Pro.
  4. I agree with the others.

    If you are considering a Plextor ssd, then you might want to take a look at the M5 Pro instead of the M5S. Intel and Crucial are also worth considering.

    I maintain the ssd database listed in the sticky at the very top of this forum section. Here is the link:
