I prefer speed over capacity, which one is faster?

The Samsung is faster

The Intel is more reliable

Both, barely better than the other.

IOPS is what I should be looking for in terms of speed right?

I don't think you'd notice a difference between either especially in daily, real life usage. People get too caught up on stupid benchmarks. I grabbed a Samsung 840 non-pro the first day they came out which is under $100. Been working perfect since day one and fast as hell.
