IMHO it depends on how much writes you're planning to do to the SSD - the Samsung's TLC NAND is ~1k cycles rated while Crucial's MLC has at least ~3k. But for most usage the Samsung performs better.

The 840 EVO is missing power loss protection, cross-die redundancy, and it currently lacks Opal 2.0 encryption, which is one of the M500's aces. Samsung says its EVO will get that last feature in time, though the discussion is largely academic until the new 840 shows up for sale anyway. Both drive families sport three years of warranty coverage, but suddenly-lower pricing on the M500s might give them an edge.

Good points, though I think the 840 EVO supports Opal 2.0 with the latest firmware.

EVO should support it with the latest firmware (mSATA one I know it does). Getting it working (any Opal 2 SSD) is another matter...

My Thanks to all those that replied with further information relating to the two SSD..

Going to wait for the next 240 gb samsung deal I think. That's if I don't miss it, only get to check HUKD in the evenings
