Personally, I'd spend a couple extra $$ and go for an 840 pro instead of an evo.

Why do you have a range of capacities? Choose a capacity first, how much space do you need?

They're the 6 options the company I'm getting the custom-built laptop from offer.

I'd definitely get the 250GB EVO since that gives you all the space you could need plus a lil more :p - more spare space is better when it comes to SSDs!

I bought a 120 GB EVO 840 as a boot drive and a 750GB WD Scorpio Black (7,200 RPM) HDD for game installations.

I'd recommend the 250 GB EVO. It's worth it not to have to worry about drive capacity.

Divide cost over GB and thats your value, if you are comparing prices. Other than that look to warranties. I have an 840 Evo and its plenty fast, literal 2x that of my sandisk drive. Unless you are base-lining it against another SSD they are all great choices. I would recommend more space than you need, and also a backup method to another storage.

The best deal is easily the 250GB Evo. I'd highly recommend it.

840 EVO for sure, I've got the 500GB and its brilliant.

If you can get the 250GB, you'd be surprised how quickly you can fill it, especially if you put the odd game on, modern ones like BF4 or Titanfall can be 40-50GB

The Sandisk Ultra Plus is a good option too :)

It's nice to be able to put some games on the SSD, i.e. the ones you play most. Just say bye-bye to loading times.  :)

Whatever you choose, stay hefty boot's kick away from HyperX 3K. I don't know what Kingston is putting in there, but these things *die*. And it's strange, because, on the other hand, all their V-series from 100 to 300 have been super-reliable, if more on the tardy side.

I still have a Kingston V180 in my Thinkpad T410 and still kicking - it's about 3yrs old now. With only 64GB on it too I regularly filled it to 10KB left! LOL. Left mIRC running overnight sometimes and it downloaded all my downloads and filled It up but it's still going just fine.

 

I have a MyDigitalSSD m.2 128GB SSD this time so we'll see how this goes.
