    a lot of people are using the G Skill and the intel ones, they run around 250-300ish depending on size as well it can be more or less.

    If I were to buy an SSD right now I would probably go for the G.Skill 128GB Titan. However since I don't plan on upgrading until Snow Leopard, there will probably be something better/cheaper by then.

    I went with the Corsair 128 SSD. It's a rebadged Samsung. Goes for around $327 at various stores.

    I have a Samsung 32GB SLC on my tablet computer.

    Didn't feel like spending more than $500, and that's what it cost back then.

    All I can say is that it's fast, quiet, and very battery efficient. I have beta tested this drive for about 2 months, I have been through 3 revisions(progress made each time), and I will get what I suspect to be the final revision Friday or Saturday, depending on when my friend is free. The last drive I beta tested I had 4 revisions.
