I would dispute the prediction that after one year the Samsung 840 pro SSD would be dead, but we'll leave that for another discussion
Other than finding a drive on sale... IMHO the best 120Gb SSD on the market for price and performance right now is the Corsair Neutron GTX
It is one of the very few SSDs that don't suffer a performance loss based on the capacity of the drive.
While I certainly wouldn't turn down a Samsung 840 Pro at the right price, I think $149 is just too much money for that particular drive.

A few minutes ago, I saw Vertex 4 120GB is on sell for ~$74 in newegg, in the Black Friday deal.
Ok, that's the same product. You may buy vertex 4 now, which would be a very good deal.
