Vertex4 is a fine drive and I'm glad you love it. OCZ track record has not been great but they've made changes and I'm sure it's much better now. Samsung 830/Crucial M4 has proven to be really reliable (important to a lot of people) and still has great performance even if they don't win overall benchmark rewards. That is why we still recommend them. With the firmware fixes to Samsung 840/pro I have no problem recommending those either although personally I still prefer 830 over 840 because of the different NAND used. 840pro is good but usually cost more. Either way I think the horse is both dead, beaten and buried so I'll refrain from bringing it up again.
