I've used their flash drives and cards and have always had good luck, can't speak to the SSD's but venture that they are fine. Still prefer Crucial or Samsung.

If you do indeed get the Crucial M4, we should form a M4 club . I am already planning on buying a second Crucial M4...if I keep this up, I will eventually need a PCIE Sata card to have a place to plug all these Sata drives into

When you get the SSD installed, it will blow your mind! I've not tried the Crucial, but everybody on here says they are really nice. Something to note about the first drive you linked to, the Sandisk: It uses a Sandforce controller, and while Sandforce drives used to be all the rage, quite a few developed problems and now, custom controllers are as fast, or faster than Sandforce controllers without the limitations. I recommend staying away from Sandforce drives just to be safe. The drives I would trust are Samsung, Corsair Neutron GTX, OCZ Vector and Vertex 4, Plextor M5 Pro, and the tried and true Crucial M4. Those are some of the fastest drives out there and odds are, you will not have any problems with any of those drives. Let us know when you get your SSD in!

Thanks for the advice. I did some research and heard that about the controllers. I went with the crucial M4 256 so now I'm just waiting for it to arrive.
