    Still debating what SSD I should get...
    At least 60GB+
    Around $100-$150.
    Any other recommendations?
    Fast in real life and somewhat reliable (I'll take the chance).

    I want something that is fast. But reading reviews on Newegg... for example OCZ SSD, it looks like 4 out of 5 says the driver is unreliable, etc.

    I also saw this on sale:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233194

    It has good reviews but I looked at the 120 and 240GB version reviews and it was awful.

    I also saw: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227728
    But look at reviews... in real life, the speed aren't even close as they advertise.

    Check out the Crucial M4. Although the theoretical speeds are lower, you won't notice the difference. It's reliable too.

    Good luck!

    I have a OCZ Vertex 2, I think it's pretty reliable.

    I'm on the OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G.
    No problems with it at all :)
