Windows 7: SSD - Plextor or Samsung (256GB)

SSD - Plextor or Samsung (256GB)

Am torn between the Plextor PX-256M5S 256GB SSD and the Samsung 830 Series 256GB the Samsung is only $26 more than the Plextor but am really curious as to the Plextor performance v the Samsung.

I have got the 120GB Samsung already in two machines and know they are good but the price of the Plextor is enticing.

Anyone got any thoughts on this please?

Yes Kelly I am having a problem with fitting my music on a 120GB in that I have found that putting it on a second drive makes the process of burning CD's with WMP so convoluted.
So I thought get a larger drive and keep it all on that (C:) drive so save all the mucking around trying to get the music back.
