    I was looking at the BX100 and BX200 i can't make my mind up what one would be faster then the other one?I was plan to use photoshop with the ssd but i use 39.89 so i take a ssd with 250gb would be alot of space for it?

    I think you mean MX200? Here is a good review that compares the two. The MX200 is a little faster and is rated for more write cycles, but even the BX100 with its lower write cycle rating is likely to outlast your computer. Unless getting every last little bit of speed is really important to you, I would just save the money and go with the BX100.

    Those aren't Samsung SSDs BTW, they're made by Crucial.

    I've had Crucial 120GB M500, 512GB MX100 and now have the 1TB SSD MX200, all have been flawless and fast.
