Was looking at some larger SSD's for my computer. Currently have a Samsung 840 EVO 120gb. Here are 3 I was looking at:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820148820
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820148945
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820147372

Was going to clone one I have to the new one, and put my games/programs on the old one.

What would be my best choice?

Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H MB
I5-4670K
Gskill Sniper series 8gb
EVGA GeForce 760GTX
WD 1TB HHD


Thanks for input.

I lean more towards Samsung, as they're known to be really reliable even for long term conditions. But really, any of those will work.

Samsung gets my vote as well; I like a company that has faith in its' product for 5 yrs instead of 3. Samsung free software (that Crucial has their own version as well) makes cloning easy. Both company's drives are fast and reliable.

I have a rule of thumb in getting a bigger drive I try to go four times the current size. Sometimes I cannot afford that but doubling the size and I usually run out within two years. That is not economical to me as spending the money for a bigger drive now, BUT it could be argued that buying every two years as the tech gets cheaper and better makes more sense. Just something to contemplate.

I'd say either Samsung or Intel. Both are perhaps the best brands for SSDs currently.
This 730 SSD 240GB is probably in your price range:

If you can afford the Samsung, go for it. It's good hardware. Crucial MX-series isn't bad at all, though, so it's a pretty good second choice. I don't know much about the BX series.
