Ok here is the deal when I equipped my Mini last spring I did a lot of research. I picked two of the fastest drives on the market and both have 5 year warranties. One is the Samsung 840 pro (rated as fastest) and the other was the Plextor M5pro Xtreme (rated best at heavy file transfer). I use the Samsung as my system drive. I went with the Plextor for my audio drive because it actually rates above the Samsung for heavy file transfer. The new crucial M500 is nice but If I had to do build another setup I would still most likely use the Samsung and the Plextor.
Oh and do not use the regular Samsung 840 just because its cheaper it uses a different type of Flash ram than the Pro. If you want to save money the new amazing bang for the buck is the 840 EVO.
