    The EVO is always cheaper ,it's the way to go.

    The only choices are 850 EVO or BX100 in that order.

    Currently the 2 best on the market.

    Samsung has a 35% market share for a reason , they are the best ad their SSD's have the longest lifespan.

  2. Between the PRO 250GB and the EVO 500 the EVO really is the better choice.

    - The PRO has a longer warrantey (10 years...which is insane), but really is a step above the EVO line because it has better performance

    - The advantage in performance of the 250GB PRO vs. the 500GB EVO is lessened because SSD's get a boost to performance when they reach the 500GB mark

    -In summary, the advantage of the PRO line is nullified by the fact that you're comparing a 250GB model to a 500GB EVO. For the same price, very close performance, and twice as much space, get the EVO.
