    I am looking at either Newegg or the OWC SATA III SSDs.

    Which 500-1TB SSD will give me the best performance and battery life for the buck?

    Crucial MX100. Quote from the review here:

    Samsung EVO SSD is a good choice also.

    Do not buy the OWC. Overpriced and they use a Sandforce controller that IMO has not been particularly reliable.

    I would like to recommend Samsung SSD 840 PRO which is the one I am using in my MBP. Works great and has made my MBP waaaayy snappier.

    I have a 750 GB Samsung 840 EVO that I got from Amazon for $400. The price keeps fluctuating.

    The SSD is great, and faster than some of the Apple SSD's. Best $400 spent.

    We love Samsung's EVOs here at work.

    Just picked up a couple of 500GB for $240 each
