    Best SSD for 2010 MBP 13"

    Can someone suggest the best SSD for 2010 MBP 13" and their reason.

    The new SATA 3 SSD are not worthwhile getting on the 2010 coz they don't support them right?

    i was thinking of getting Vertex 2 SSD
    or curucial
    samsung or other?

    Intel 320 Series SSDSA2CW120G3K5 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

    I installed this on at the beginning of April. I LOVE IT!!! I looked at the Vertex2 but after looking at reviews, I came to the conclusion that OCZ isn't very reliable. Intel has lots of high rating reviews and hardly any low rating reviews. Yes the OCZ SSD has the Sandforce driver but with Lion right around the corner and it supporting TRIM, it really isn't needed. Plus the Intel compatibility is always perfect. My Intel SSD worked right out of the box...NOT A SINGLE PROBLEM! The Intel drive simply works...EXACTLY like it should.

    Intel 320
    Kingston V+100 Series

    I'm running a Intel 320. Mine just freezes sometimes when opening from hibernation but it works after like 10 seconds. Overall it's really fast.

    I'm going to agree with everybody else. Intel 320 if you want the maximum performance from your SATA 2 and Kingston V+ or V+100 if you want oem performance.
