Recommendation for SSD for 2010 top iMac 27" (as part of the Seagate recall)

I need some recommendation for SSD working for this iMac. AS I recall it has only 3G SATA speed. I know obout OWC options (expensive) or people praising Samsung 830 drives. Ther are already Black Friday offers around, like the newegg Intel 335 Series SSDSC2CT240A4K5 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive ($154). Reliablity and the "right controller" is important, but the OWC prices are high compared to current "deals".

Also, my Mac has the recalled Seagate 1TB drive (no problems to date). Do you think the Apple store or certified repair shop would be willing to install "my" SSD as a part of the exchange ? Anybody tried this ?
