    There is no best, just preference.

    I recommend

    OCZ Vetex 3
    or
    OWC 6G

    I have no issues with any of my Vertex drives.

    MBP 17" + SATA III SSD = trouble. Check OWC Larry's post for more info.

    I would opt for SATA II. Samsung 470 is a great choice.

    Tis true, I forgot about the 17" issues with SATA3.

    Sata III on the 17"MBP is a hit or miss. I was lucky and my Vertex 3 MI is blazingly fast and runs without any issues.
    If you really want one, I recommend buying a OWC 6G SSD. If it doesn't work in your MBP you can bring it back and get another drive.
