Default SSD Upgrade Help

I need to upgrade my SSD from the 60gb to Im thinking to the 240 or 256 gb range in a laptop. I have read mixed reviews on different ones and am getting different ideas one says go with Intel other say go with Samsung and others say go with Kingston. So what would be the best to stick in a laptop.

My System Specs


The intel drives are very good, OCZ vertex 4's, crucial m4's, and corsair force drives are all about 200 bucks, and the OCZ agility 4 is about 180 bucks. They are all good drives. How old is your laptop? Does it have sata 2 or 3?

Instead of the Agility 4...go with a SanDisk Extreme 240gb. MUCH better drive for the same coing (I personally cant stand MIRs so dont include them in my calculations)

Though if you got 200+ to spend....Corsair Force GS, Corsair Neutron GTX, Intel 520, Vertex 4, Sammy 840 Pro are all great drives. Cant really go wrong with any of them.
