    Which would be advised in terms of speed and compatibility?

    480gb Crucial M500 SSD or 500gb Samsung 840 evo? I have a 15' early 2011 2.2ghz macbook pro. Im upgrading to 2x8GB crucial RAM also.

    Since you'll never see any speed difference, get whichever one is less expensive.

    I agree get the one that will give you the best price/GB. You cannot go wrong with either SSD, both are repeatable brands and relatively fast for the price. I have a Samsung 840 (non evo or pro) and the difference from the HD was huge.
