Samsung Evo 850 vs Crucial MX300 vs Kingston UV400

I'm currently choosing between those three. The MX300 and the UV are available in my city so I can buy any right away. The UV costs 3/4 the Crucial's price. On the other hand, the Evo 850 I'd have to buy it from Amazon and ship it to my city but it would cost about the same or slightly more than the MX300 had I bought it from here.

Also I'm speaking about the 240, 250 and 275 models.

Would I notice any differences between the 3 in terms of speed/life span? I have never had an SSD before. Would it be worth the ~10 days wait if I order the Evo 850 from Amazon?

Also I have a Macbook Pro 2015 and the benchmark results are twice that of any of those. How come there is a huge difference in read/write speeds? I read that it had something to do with double M.2 channels that Apple achieved? I just don't know but the speeds are twice that of the others.

Here's the link since the embedded one won't work for some reason:

Here's my PC's specs in case anyone would like to see.

My specs are as follows:
Operating System Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
CPU Intel Core i5 2500K @ 3.30GHz - Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology
RAM 8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz (9-9-9-24)
Motherboard Gigabyte PH67A-D3-B3 (Socket 1155)
GTX Asus OC 1060 6GBStorage 698GB
Seagate ST750LX003-1AC154 (SATA)

    The 850 EVO is better hands down. I would order it in a heartbeat.

    this review covers the kingston uv400 but if you look closely at the benchies you can see all three drives mentioned at various points of the benchmrk (in some not all) short of it is the 850 EVO is the supreme drive for performance.
  2. What about the huge speed difference between my Mac and those SSDs?

    An SSDs speed/performance is and SSDs speed/performance. Being a Mac won't change that. And are you sure your Mac can handle a standard SSD? I thought it was for an i7 win10 build. If for win10 everything should be fine and fast.
  4. What do you mean by if my Mac can handle a standard SSD? I believe the one in my Mac uses M.2. I did the speed test and the results were 900-1000 read and write as opposed to 400s and 500s for those SSDs I'm choosing between. I'm just wondering why is the difference so huge?
    Yea the one I'm buying is intended for a Window 10 i5 machine.
  5. Oh m.2 vs sata....M.2 is much faster as it uses PCIe interface that can reach 3.94 GBs where as SATA 3 is limited to 600MB/s.
  6. Okay. I just ordered the EVO 850. Lets see how it goes. Thank you :)
