Default Need a new SSD

Well, my OCZ SSD decides to crap out again. This time corrupting my work, and set me back quite a bit.

I'm sick of putting up with this crap. Can anyone refer me to a good reliable SSD? 120gb is enough, nothing too fancy.

SanDisk Extreme. Crucial M4. Corsair Neutron GTX. Corsair Force GS. Intel 520. Samsung 830. Samsung 840 PRO (not std 840 model...just pro). Intel 3 series. Kingston HyperX.

Pick your budget. Pick your pick your drive. :)

Any reason why you are against non-pro?

The std model uses unproven TLC nand. The pro uses ONFI 2 MLC NAND.
