seems Intel is the only reliable SSD
Lol. NO! The SSDs that are running their manufacturer's latest firmware (supporting TRIM) are good to go. All the horror stories about the Jmicron 602 have to be forgotten when you consider a recent SSD.

The indilinx barefoot-based SSDs, the Barefoot ECO ones and the latest Intel are reliable drives, provided you use them like they're intended to be (and OS tweaked accordingly), and are running the latest firmware. I assume the latest Kingston drives are also good to go.

The Sandforce drives, which are really promising, are kinda new and it would be nice to let them "mature" a little before buying.
