So over the weekend and into Cyber Monday, what's the best choice for a 240/256 GB SSD. For me reliability beats out speed. It will be my first SSD, so they will all be much faster than I'm used to.
Sounds like the Newegg $157 (all-in) Intel 330 240gb is about as good as it gets for that.

Ignoring shipping cost (have a friend in the states) and factoring in no-tax (would make it cost around $80 pre-tax in Ontario). How is this SSD?

128GB Vertex 4 Series SATA 6.0 GB/s 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive (SSD) - $89.99 US

Same product on TD for $129.99

I think most of would prefer to avoid OCZ.

So is that Intel 330 240GB SSD any good in terms of performance and price? I have a Mushkin Crucial 120GB that performs well but wouldn't swapping it with the Intel one to get some more space and move the Mushkin to the HTPC for for boot partition.

OCZ that bad? I know their Vertex 3 used the Sandforce drive, but Vertex 4 uses the Everest 2? Drive.

Either way, too slow. Missed out on purchase by the time I got home.

Avoid OCZ SSDs like the plague. Worst failure rates.
