With the evo you can't go wrong. You have to buy what you can find in your neck of the woods.

You will like the EVO; it's an excellent SSD and comes with excellent support software.

All things being equal I just bought a 840 Pro. My previous SSD's are all Crucials then broke ranks with a Samsung 830 and a cheaper than dirt OCZ Vertex III on a whim. I've been very pleased with all of them.

I favor the Samsung Pros myself (my boot drive on my desktop is a 128GB 840 Pro) but, when I wanted to replace the 500GB spinner in my notebook, I just couldn't justify the expense of a SSD that cost significantly more than the notebook itself so, when they went on sale late last year, I snagged a 500GB 840 EVO. Even then, it and the RAM upgrade I did a little later (8GB from 4GB) together cost as much as the notebook (RAM is outrageously expensive right now). I primarily use the notebook only on trips longer than a day trip (and I don't travel as much as I use to) so it gets light use; unless something just out and out breaks, that EVO will last through this notebook and probably the next one.

I would love to add a large ssd to my lappy I waited till a 256gb went deep on sale and pulled the trigger with 8 gb of ram the lappy is amazing and it's only a i3. I then grabbed a 64gb sd card and a 128gb usb 3 stick for added travel needs and it works perfect.

You did or did not get a SSD? Which one if so?

A 256gb was all I could afford or justify but soon we'll be installing 1tb SSD's and laughing about way back when when we struggled to justify a 60gb SSD.

In 1998 I paid $221 dollars for a 4.3 Gig Western Digital hard drive. Contrast that to $175 for a 2TB Western Digital Caviar Black HD in 2012 or $212 for a Samsung 840 Pro 256 SSD drive a few weeks back.

My how times have changed

As to the OP's question, the enthusiast in me says get the better performing SSD drive. A Yugo may be a car, and it may get you from point A to B, but it's still a Yugo

BTW good choice with the EVO.
