what to look for in an SSD as far as latest, fastest?

is Crucial the way to go?
and which to stay away from? i hear OCZ are problematic?

should i get something like: Crucial CT128M4SSD2 m4 2.5" Solid State Drive - 128GB, SATA 6Gb/s
i hear these can do 500 mb/sec read with latest firmware

what you guys using & recommend?

i have a OCZ and no issues, but this last generation seems to have som problems..

i'd go with intel 320 series, performance is good enought and liability seems to be the better around (5 year warranty included)

Crucial M4 seems to be the choice in price/performance/trustability in this generation, but i'd prefer slightly lower speeds and longer life with the intel.

Crucial M4 128GB is the most optimal solution.
