I agree with Rolli. They get a pretty bad wrap over their failure rate, but performance-wise for price they are a great choice. From what I've read the newer gen seem more reliable than the OCZ Vertex 2. Provided you get one that works they are a great buy. Maybe question it with the place you are purchasing from on how they deal with RMAs on SSDs and purchase based on how confident you are that they would change it over without issue.
