Hi, so I recently bought a Macbook Pro non-retina 2.6Ghz 8Gb Ram and 750Gb HDD, and I want to know which is the best 256Gb SSD I can get in terms of preformace and compatibility (I'm running OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.1). Please can anyone help me!? :)

But you recommend me this because you had some experience with this SSD or you just has read/listen about it? Sorry for this question, but I wanna buy the one that isn't going to cause me problems
Here's an article from Anandtech talking about the flash memory based on the Samsung 830 in the new Retina MacBook Pro. So that's what I would go with as well.

"Samsung's PM830 is quite honestly the best behaved SSD controller I have used under OS X, it is no surprise that Apple chose it."

I personally own an Intel 520 series, but I bought a Samsung 830 for my brother's MBP and installed it and used it myself for a while. We both love our SSD's. My next SSD will be either an Intel or a Samsung and I'm leaning Samsung right now because Apple uses them already.
