OK an update. Went with the Rosewill Thor V2W at Amazon for 129.99. I could beat the price at other sites but once you add in the ship Amazon won.
Question - at tomshardware I've been doing some studying about SSD's and topping most all of their charts is Samsung 840 Pro. The pricing on their SSD's seems very reasonable yet I haven't seen Samsung's mentioned much in here and I wonder if there's something about these drives that I'm not seeing? -- How Sweet it is!

I think koitsu is more knowledgeable of how these things work, but the Samsungs are widely respected drives, sort of like the OCZ Vector, which OCZ also developed in-house. -- Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
