MacBook Pro 512gb ssd Replacement Hard Drive?

The hard drive in my MacBook Pro 13" crapped out today, so I went to the Apple Store. He told me it was beyond repair so I either need to replace the hard drive or buy a new laptop.

I would like to purchase a 512gb solid state hard drive to install. The Apple 512gb ($999) is a little too expensive for me, but the Crucial m4 512gb ssd ($400) and Samsung 830 series 512 gb ssd ($542) have gotten great reviews.

Which 512gb solid state would you suggest, or what other options exist that may be better? I'm mostly concerned with ease of multitasking, overall performance, and cost efficiency.

    I have a few SSD drives and have installed a few too in customer computers. I have had no problem with the crucial drives (have 2 myself and a crucial adrenaline and installed about 5-6) or the corsair drives (3 or 4) but have not used any Samsung drives so cant comment on them.

    Crucial tend to be reliable in my experience
