    I've ordered a new MacBook Pro 15", 2.0GHz with anti-glare screen. I held onto the default 500GB HDD planning to replace it a.s.a.p. with a 240GB/256GB SATA 3 SSD for maximum performance for less cash. OCZ's Vertex 3 is a very compelling choice, given the test results out there. But I understand that OCZ's reliability is rather questionable. That worries me a lot. So I'm thinking of going for the Intel 510 instead. A little slower in day-to-day use, but arguably a lot more reliable. (e.g. also see http://www.anandtech.com/show/4202/the-intel-ssd-510-review/3)

    Granted: we'd have to wait a couple of months to find out about the real numbers, but what are your current thoughts on reliability vs. performance? And will both brands work equally well in the MacBook?

    I think it comes with a 3yr. warranty if you buy from ocz... if that makes you feel any better :] I have no idea on quality and reliability of the products since I have never owned one myself or have read much about it.
