Popular opinion on this seems to change quite a lot, so I'm making a new thread despite knowing that their are other topics on this. How are the Vertex 3s on the 2011 MBP now? Have their issues been sorted out with firmware revisions or anything? How do Vertex 2's, or other cheaper drives fare? I'm looking for about 256gbs of space, and complete compatibility with either Snow Leopard or Lion and all of the MBPs features such as sleeping and waking from hibernation, no stalls or delays or frequent lost data. Will be used as a scratch disk for Adobe CS5 as well. Photoshop isn't so bad with lower res images, but After Effects is intolerable with the 5400 rpm drive. Thanks for your time and suggestions.
