Does anyone know what is the most reliable SSD, preferably more than 60GB, for around $200? (after rebates is OK)

I keep on reading bad stories about OCZ so I'll probably cross them out the list.

I want it to last a few years. I don't care about top-top speeds since from what I understood even the cheapest SSD's beat any 7200 drive in ACCESS time.

Generally how are Kingstons? I remember back in 2004 they were the top RAM manufacturer. Not sure how it applies to SSDs now.

Appreciate any advise. Thank you.

Intel so far is probably the most "reliable" manufacturer, but it looks like OCZ Vertex 2/Agility 2 as well as now Corsair Force series and Mushkin Callisto Deluxe which are all using Sandforce controller will be pretty good, and their 60GB offerings are at a very tempting price. I just picked up an Intel X25 M 80gb and it's pretty good.

There are newer drives that perform better, but in terms of track record the Intel drives seem to stand out - both because there's been no pattern of problems with them and because they've been around for quite a while.
