Default Which sata 3 SSD to buy for maximum stability?

Hey guys, I have a corsair force 3 120gb, and it's BSODing all the time on my new rig, 2500k + sabertooth p67.

I think this week i'm going to buy a new SSD and RMA the corsair one. I'm not going for sandforce this time, so what are my options? Crucial M4 or Intel 510?

Which is the most stable one to date?

I'm a noob so I can't say a whole lot but I do have the crucial m4 and have never had a problem with it. I was recommended by one of my gamer buddies.

Intel and/or Crucial is the answer according to my reading. Intel 5 yr warranty, at this stage of the SSD game I'd pay up for that, personally.

Intel and Samsung are the 2 with the best reputation for reliability.

Intel or Crucial. IF you want the best. Great drives, backed by GREAT customer service.
Samsung are also good, but are harder to find. Though this is still bleeding edge tech, so while the chances of a bad one are probably lower compared to hdds. It still is a mass produced item. So you will only be improving you chances, not getting a guarantee. If you know what I mean. ;)
