OCZ vs Crucial

I want to do a solid state drive I am between these two. I've heard the OCZ is much faster, but I've also heard the Crucial is more reliable. Anyone?

OCZ Technology
Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-120 120GB SATA 6Gb/s 2.5" Solid State Drive (SSD) with SandForce 2281 Controller

Crucial
m4 CT128M4SSD2 128GB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) with Marvell Controller


I also have a wd3200aajs that I was going to use as a seconday, is that going to bottle neck the SSD at all? I'm going to load almost everything I do/play on the SSD

    Go with the Curcial M4, inadittion to having a HIGHER satifaction quotion, it is also FASTER than the agility 3!! GEE you just can not trust them manuf - LOL

    Did a little digging earlier today for another post:. What I found:
    Here is a older review of the OCZ Agility 3 by Anadtech;
    NOTE with AS SSD the Sequencial read and writes were the SAME for both Sata II and SATA III ports (203.3 MB/s, almost identical to what I got.)
    Ref: http://www.anandtech.com/show/4421 [...] -roundup/5
    And a 2nd review:

    Have 2 128 gig Curcial M4's, 1 128 gig Samsung 830 and 2 120 gig Agility 3's. My systems seems to backup the two links I posted:
