    I want to buy something around 240GB SSD. I want something thats pretty fast but a decent price. What would you guys recommend for a 17" 2011 Macbook pro?

    Vertex 3? It's the fastest and not that much more.

    I sold my Vertex 3 because of what it did to my battery life.

    I've now got a Crucial M4 256GB. One hour more battery life.

    I thought there were issues with the SATA 6/GBs ssds in the 2011 MBPs.

    Yes there are with the 17" MBP. I would recommend OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro SSD which is 3G. I use a 480GB one in my optical bay of my 15" with a 6G in the HD bay to take advantage of the SATA 3 connection.
