Default Choosing SSD for new computer build

I have three Sata III SSD's (120GB or 128GB) that I am looking at for my new desktop build and would like your opinions on preference and why. I am pretty much leaning towards either the Samsung or the Crucial.

Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 - Newegg.com - Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC128D/AM - Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC128D/AM 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) Desktop Upgrade Kit

Kingston HyperX SH100S3B/120G - Newegg.com - Kingston HyperX SH100S3B/120G 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (HyperX Upgrade Kit)

I am leaning towards the Crucial but am wondering if Newegg might be have better sales on or after Christmas. Some may call me cheap but I prefer thrifty.
