I'm planning on buying an SSD for my laptop (SATA II) but cant decide on which one to get. I don't know to much about SSDs besides some basics.

These are the three I'm looking at right now:
1. http://www.amazon.com/OCZ-Technology-Optimized-2-5-Inch...

2. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003NE5JCE/ref=s9_simh...

3. http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-64-2-5-Inch-Solid-State-C...

I want it to be at least 60 gigs and my budged is around $100. If you can find anything better for the money please let me know or just simple help me figure out which one of these 3 to buy.

Thank you.

Out of those I would get the Crucial because it is sure it will not have any Sandforce issues.

While I was searching i found the Samsung 830 series which has a 64gig in my price range. Would that be a better choice than the Crucial? People seem to think they are reliable.

Thank you for the reply and the interesting article. I'm defiantly leaning towards the samsung now but i still have a concern about the reliability differences of the drives. I personally would throw performance out the window if its more reliable. Any ssd will be better than my 5400 hdd. The Samsung is slightly faster than the Crucial but the M4 has been out for much longer.
