    i have base model cmbp 2012 and i want to add ssd to it but there are little number of choices due to availability in my country:
    1-OCZ Vertex 4 128GB SATA III------150$
    2-Intel 520 Series 120GB SATA 6.0Gb/s-----175$
    3-Adata XPG SX900 128GB SATA 6.0Gb/s-----140$
    all prices are converted to $$ from our national currency.

    so what is the best one in life time, heavy work, speed.

    My list:

    1: Samsung 840
    2: Samsung 830
    3. OCZ Vertez 4

    Yes, the Samsung 840 and 840 Pro SSDs are the best, followed by the 830. I have an 830 in my machine.

    I know it's not on your list, but I install the M4 the day I received my 2012 13" MBP (bought on day 1), and haven't had a single issue with it yet. I highly recommend it for the price.

    I can recommend the Samsung SSDs, you can you for the 830 if you still get one, or go with the new 840 series, the drives are fast and reliable.
