    Since your Mac has SATA 3Gb/s, my recommendation would be 300GB Intel 320 Series. Reliable and still fast.

    I've got the 160GB version in my MBP, and an X25-M G2 160GB in my Mac Pro. The Intel drives are very nice.

    I like intel's and samsungs. I own both.. depending on your budget

    Intel series 320 600gb = 1.1k IN MY MAC PRO NOW

    Intel series 320 300gb = $550 sold it very good

    Intel series 320 160Gb = $300 Never owned it

    Samsung series 470 256GB = 392 on ebay

    Samsung series 470 128Gb = 209 at new egg I own 4 of these.

    Samsung series 470 64Gb = 109 at new egg I had 3 of these. I sold this OWC case on ebay with 2 of the 64gb samsungs inside it.

    (Note to mods I have sold this item and I am not trying to sell it here it was sold days ago. )

    If you have any model mac pro the intels and samsungs are both good. if you have a 2011 iMac or 2011 macbook pro you can consider a 6Gb sata III ssd from OWC like these

    One thing about OWC they will fix it or replace it quickly.
    OCZ is much slower with replacement of the vertex ssds when they go bad.
    I have never had an Intel or samsung fail so I can't say if they replace them quickly.
