Default Best SSD Drive

I'm going to get a SSD desktop boot drive. Can anyone suggest the top one out right now?

Thanks

Be careful what you ask for.

Here are the best:
Newegg.com - Intel X25-E Extreme SSDSA2SH032G1 2.5" 32GB SATA II SLC Internal Solid state disk (SSD) - Solid State Disks $420 for 32gb
Newegg.com - Intel X25-E Extreme SSDSA2SH064G1 2.5" 64GB SATA II SLC Internal Solid state disk (SSD) - Solid State Disks $799 for 64gb

for a bit more reasonably priced one:
Newegg.com - Intel X25-M SSDSA2MH080G1 80GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid state disk (SSD) - Solid State Disks $329 for 80gb

Some of the OCZ's are nice as well.

This SSD isn't quite as good as the Intel's but it is almost identical to the Vertex, Falcon and Torqx for a much lower price.

Newegg.com - SUPER TALENT UltraDrive ME FTM64GX25H 2.5" 64GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid state disk (SSD) - Solid State Disks
