    The Samsung 830 is a solid choice. It comes in a 512GB capacity.

    In case you're wondering, the SSD in the pictures is the OWC Mercury Pro 6G ;)

    I have the samsung 830, every review I've ready has always spoken highly of them. It's been great so far but I haven't even had it a year.

    Here is this that may give you a starting point as well as far as quality drives. I have heard people like the Plextor SSD's because you can get them with a 5-yr warranty vs 3yr with a lot of others.

    Also, I've heard there is a new generation of SSD's that are coming out that are supposed to be a little faster. The bad part about those is that the reliability might not be proven.

    Thanks folks.
    It looks like for my situation the Sandisk Extreme 480 is the winner.
    Reason is that Im researching for SSD drives used with both Sonnet Tempo SSD Pro and the Black Magic Cinema Camera.
    Now another question would be, which SSD has a longer read/write life?
    Its not for the Black Magic, its for the Sonnet Tempo SSD Pro card.
