it really depends on what you want really, the Vertex 3 and HyperX and the Intel 520 ssd's are the perf kings

also that pic that cupra posted was actually a M4 it says it in the title
heres one of a Vertex 3 120GB


then heres a lovely table that Legit reviews post on their SSD reviews, orange means its top of the SSDs they have tested

I had the same decision not long ago and went with the Samsung 830.
Samsung make their own controller and drivers.

Intel do have 5 year warranty. But I personally would rather not buy a sandforce based SSD.
