    Both will work.
    I personally like the Crucial M4 but V3 or 4 works fine.

    Is the crucial M4 faster than the V3 or 4?

    If you want speed and don't mind being treated like a lab rat, OCZ has you covered. Just don't be surprised if the company changes hardware parts while keeping the same product codes as before, and expect people to not see a difference.

    Much more reliable? Evidence?

    I had the model before the M4, the C300 and it was excellent. Now running a couple of Vertex 3s and they're also excellent. In order of speed you could probably rank them like this: M4<Vertex3<Vertex4/Samsung830

    Any of these drives will be great, you really wouldn't notice the difference between them so I would suggest getting whatever is cheapest for the capacity you need. 256GB Samsung 830 is a good price as is 512GB M4.

    Don't expect speed on M4. I get like 210mbps Write and 510mbps Read.
    Not much fast.

    However, you can expect the M4 not to fail at anytime.
    Even if it does, you are covered for 3 years.
    Yet, I never faced any problem with M4.
