samsung vs crucial ssd?

I am planning on buying a new 512gb SSD for my laptop and I am between these two options:

Samsung Electronics Samsung 840 Series Solid State Drive

Crucial m4 512GB 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive SATA 6Gb/s

Samsung is a little cheaper but does that mean Crucial will be a better hard drive? Or I can't go wrong with either one. Please let me know what do you think!

The price difference is not either a significant amount so you can consider that. I guess in other words

Which one is better? and why? or will I not even feel the difference.

Thank you so much!!! :)


And one more thing please! I ve noticed I can buy a used for even a lower price of about 20-40$ even worth it? since I am already spending a good amount of money for the SSD hard drive.

Its Amazon's "Like New" Option for both.
