Default Best choice / brand for 60GB+ SSD

Looking to purchase a 2.5" 60 GB+ SATA III SSD for a office workstation that will basically have win 7 pro OS and limited software on it. Current machines (XP) have 15GB on 80 GB hard drives. I think 60 GB will be plenty for this application but would considered more. What brand or brands and models should I stick with?

Thanks in advance!

I read that, thanks for the link.
Looking at 90GB. Any preferences?

Corsair Force GT CSSD-F90GBGT for 110
or
OCZ Vertex 3 VTX3-25SAT3-90G for 120
or
OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-90G for 120

all 3 use the Sandforce 2200 or 2281 controller

Vertex 3 > Agility 3, I'm not sure where the Force GT fits in.

Force GT = Vertex 3 specs-wise. Agility = Force.

For reliability, I'll stick with Intel.
