Looks like the Evo is a little faster based on that, just depends on if you want to pay the premium for it or not.

The other aspect to compare, if it matters to you, is the TBW.

They all perform relatively similar, all have 5y warranty, and are all similarly priced (Samsung 5-10% higher at times).
The biggest difference is the TBW or write endurance, comparing the 500GB drive crucial's is 180TB, WD is 200TB, and Samsung 300TB.
If you don't do that much then the Crucial's lowest cost with solid reliability is likely the way to go, if you do above average writes, then Samsung is the way to go.

Use crystal disk info on your current SSD and see how many Total Host Writes you've used. You can extrapolate that over the time you've had the drive to see if it might be needed.

The WD 1TB is a good drive. You won't notice the speed difference. As for the TBW, you won't use up 200TBW in 5 years. I write to my drive kind of heavy. I only write less than 20TB a year.
