Question SSD for ~120€

i'm currently building a new computer for myself and i can't decide on which ssd to get. i've been reading/watching/looking at tons of reviews/comparisons/graphs etc. but everytime i think i found the right drive i find another review which says another one is better..
i'm currently looking at:
-Samsung 840 Evo 250GB (105€)
-Samsung 840 Pro 120GB (115€)
-Intel 530 Series 240GB (125€)
-ADATA SP920 250GB(115€)

my budget is ~120€ and the ssd will be used for the os and programs

that's what most of the reviews said, too. but i'm still not fully convinced as some people across the different forums said that samsung ssd's weren't that good and are going to fail/slow down pretty fast..

Nah, popular opinion is that they are the best. If you dont believe me, Linus said it as well

Edit: Just look 7 minutes into this WAN show and you will se what Linus says :

okay haha.. one more thing why i was unsure about the 840 pro is the size. as it's only a 120GB drive and i've read that the lower capacity drives are slower than the higher capacity ones (space-wise i'm totally fine with 120G

This is true, but obviously not the fault of the 840. By the way, this was his face when he said that the 840 was pretty much the best.

Well, my reason would be that you can get an 840 Evo or Crucial MX100 for that price that's twice the capacity. The Evo drives are still extremely good and highly recommended.

Yep, EVO drives are great as well.

The 240 EVO is much better value.
