My choice is the Curical M4 or the Samsung 830, which ever is the cheapest of the two.
If same price (or with in a few dollars). The m4 for laptops (draws less current) and the 830 For desktops. I prefer the controller in the m4 and 830 over the Controller used in 120 gig SSDs (SF22xx).
The Vertex 4 may be good, just have not seen enogh "User" experience to gauge user problems with.

Added: There is NOT a big enough performance diff between the better SSDs, so I use reliability/Lowest user complaints as my criteria.
NOTE: My term "better" does not include the SSDs that use Async NAND chips (ie Agillity III). These SSDs work great in a SATA II config, but when you do upgrade to SATA III their performance is a little lower than the Upper end SSDs.
