I'm torn over what SSD brand and model to get. I want good speeds, but mostly reliability. If possible one that works out of the box and doesn't require me trying 5 different firmware updates to keep a brand new drive from BSOD everyday. I think I'm pretty well sold on staying away from sandforce controllers. I'm stuck between Intel 320,510, Samsung 430,830, Plextor PX-2m, and Crucial M4 or C300. I'm looking in the 240GB and above range.

I've been seeing a lot of people reccomending the Crucial M4. Good price, good performance, and apparently seems pretty rock solid (Based on reviews).

Also the Intel SSD's are quite rock solid as well.

So this would be my choice:

1) Crucial M4
2) Intel 320/510
