I've been installing Samsung 840 EVOs in machines at work. The price is budget, although not ultra-budget. And Samsung is a good brand.
And from what I've read, if your workload is light, the 840 EVO is as fast and sometimes faster than the higher end SSDs. And sure, endurance isn't quite as high as others, but if your workload is light, you'll never use a tenth of that anyway.
For the machines at work, they're used as boot drives and for loading programs. The occasional PDF and Word document are stored, but no big files. And everything else is on the server. 840 EVO sounds perfect, in my opinion.
