Id rather have more space than a subjective better value.
Also, Samsung 840 series arnt the best, id suggest doing some resesrach on those. The 830's were the good reliable ones. 840's, not so much.
Id take intel before that, and I want more space versus more speed.
When comparing price, space, performance together the samsung drive comes out on top, plus the 840 and 840 PRO are basically completly different drives in terms of reviews and their performance/reliability.
If performance isnt a thing you should look elsewhere for a 256gb ssd at the $150 price point which would make more sense than buying a 180gb for 130.
I bought the 180GB with store pick-up. Thanks OP. I can cancel if something better comes up this week.
I want the 180GB 520 or 330 but will accept another good SSD if a GREAT SD comes up. I would like to have the components for the weekend or 12/31 the latest so I can spend New Year’s Day doing the build.
With this and the FRY’s $36 Corsair H60 Liquid CPU Cooler I ordered today, I have all of the parts except for the CPU/MOBO/MEM. I’ll get a i5 3570K. MOBO? $100-140. I am in Atlanta and have 2 Microcenters and 2 FRY’s >15 miles, (don’t hate me because of my geography) so I am hoping MC comes through with something great this week.
Any advice/opinions are greatly appreciated. HO HO HO

I know thats why it worries me heh. I just want a reliable drive and intel is fairly proven in that area. I really want a 160-180gb ssd, but its gotta be around $80-100 because ive seen many deals for them in that range in the past. I refuse to pay more. If this were $30 less, id be all over it.
