    What is the best SSD under $400 and over 100GB?
    I want very high transfer speeds and a long read/write cycle life.

    If you are just using a single drive then the Pro should be fine.

    From what I read you really only need the more expensive/reliable Pro RE if you want to run a really fast RAID 0 striped pair. If you really want the ultimate data storge get the OWC Data Doubler to replace the SuperDrive with a second SSD.

    There are literally dozens of threads on this topic on here, so if you want an argument why I say this just search the forum, but for my money (and for OSX) OCZ has and currently is the best combination of speed and reliability.

    +2 for OCZ. Vertex 2 is where its at right now.

    Intel is tried and proven, and their 3rd generation drives are coming out soon
    However, OWC has been coming out with some fast drives
