    I'm looking at getting a .M2 ssd for my computer and wonder if there is such a big difference between this drives?
    I'm looking at a 500gb drive for the time being.

    Good question.

    I think both are excellent and the WD is meant to be faster but I would choose the Samsung on brand name alone.

    Performance would be very similar anyway.

    The Samsung is also cheaper.

    Here's a review.

    I'd go with the Samsung.

    I was seeing the Pro version which is actually more expensive and it confused me, but yes, the Evo is 20 pounds cheaper.

    I wouldn't express brand loyalty to Samsung.

    I would try the WD Black.
