The Bottom Line So far, the Crucial m4 offers the best value among SSDs. Though it's not the fastest, it's by far the most affordable among its peers. The Samsung 840 Pro lives up to its name: it's a top-notch solid-state drive for professionals with a price to match. If you're looking for a fast SSD that offers top capacity at low cost, look no further than the Samsung 840 Evo. The Corsair Neutron GTX is one of the best solid-state drives on the market, especially for those who want top performance from their ultrathin portable computer.
