    from my understanding those 3 are probably the best on the market, can;t go wrong with any of them 3.


    so probably comes down to the best price you can get for each

    Get whichever is currently the cheapest - Crucial M4 or Samsung 830.

    I've been using the M4 for months now and its a great drive. Need a few more and going for the same again.

    Samsung 830 and Crucial are similar prices aren't they. I'd go Samsung.
    Have you considered the Vertex 4?

    OCZ Vertex 4 is just as good as the mentioned ones. I have it.
    Worth considering. But any of them is perfect, they all pretty much have similar performance, nothing that you'll notice in the real world.

    I would choose either the Samsung or the Crucial from those choices.

    Wouldn't hurt to consider the mushkin Chronos DX or MX, Sandisk Extreme, and the Corsair Force GT as well. Depending on sales etc, get whichever is the best deal at the moment.

    I can highly recommend the Samsung 830. I have been using this model in two build so far and have only positive things to say.

    Out of what you listed, I'd get the 830, simply because I know from personal experience, that it rocks!

    However, the Vertex4 is also a nice drive. It had only just been released when I bought my 830 and no one had any stock. If they had, I may well have bought that instead... maybe.. while not quite as fast this 830 is solid. I've abused it in many ways: Excessive benchmarking, lots of re-installing from backups while solving other issues, and all manner of stuff that is supposed to be quite bad for it. I've had it months, and it's still exactly as fast as when new, and health is still 100%. That's gotta count for something, even at the expense of a slight speed disadvantage in certain scenarios.
