I am looking into getting a SSD very shortly, I have read reviews, I have read posts, I have tried to do a lot of research before posting a repetitive thread. From what I have read Intel = Reliable and I was looking at their newer 320 SSD. When I read reviews though it seems like the OWC Mercury blew it out of the water in terms of speed. However it had some issues at one point in time. I like the logic behind Sandforce controllers (writing less information) that I read on Anandtech because I assume the power consumption being lower = better battery life. So my question is, have the OWC's become reliable with more firmware updates w/o much slowdown? I have a 2010 MBP so Sata 6 is kinda pointless because by the time I upgrade prices will have dropped so I will be able to just get a different hard drive for the new computer. However if the new hard drives give the best reliability and speed I will pay more for Sata 6 although I can't use it. I am looking for a hard drive in the 240 - 320gb range. Also TRIM support would be nice I know Tiger will probably address this but I will be doing the "bypass" in snow leopard. Are only certain SSD's compatible with the back door way to get trim on Snow Leopard?
